6. Hope, but don't count on it, and support action to undermine them

The Right still has a full array of media outlets whose business model spreading "alternative facts" and churning up bile. Most of that will feel no incentive to change, and will just shift into "Corrupt Marxist Democrats Destroying The Country ARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!" mode. Fostering that hate is what Republicans have relied on since the '70s to give them winning numbers. They don't really want to change that, they just want to restore the good old days of the Bush administration.

Support policies that work toward the breakup of concentrated media ownership. Also support building our own media systems to advocate for our viewpoints daily and counter their lies on a constant basis. Repetition is key, and we need places to repeat things where general audiences can hear them. And to provide the sort of familiar touchbase that helps GOTV efforts.
