  1. What you say here is quite true. The media stupidly falls for it every time, but part of that is just the nature of how we consume our news. Trump may be the master manipulator, but this will only work for so long and only for the very gullible (his base). Mueller will eventually present his report and time will be up. Resist!

    1. I acknowledge that the broadcast and internet news media is in love with the “Breaking News” logo. So, they have to fish for anything that is “breaking”. It may be new, but it’s often not really news.

      Interestingly, print media is not as susceptible, due to having the time to consider the worthiness of the items. Thus, the daily newspaper is often the best source for non-hyperbolic news.
