    It is beyond ridiculous. All day every day it's all about Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump. For God's sakes is Donald Trump the only newsworthy subject in the world? I can think of 10 subjects off the top of my head that would require true investigative journalism and would be interesting for a change:

    1. Where does our tax money go?
    2. Why do we send so much foreign aid (money) to bad countries? Who decided this?
    3. How are so many drugs entering our country? How much Fentanyl is China shipping into our country?
    4. Why is there such disparity in drug costs?
    5. What is the current state of all of our bridges? Are we close to another I-35 collapse?
    6. Why is our government allowed to keep hiring more employees? Why has there never been a significant Federal government layoff?
    7. Why is Pot still after 50 years still considered a Schedule 1 drug and Fentanyl considered a milder schedule 2 drug by the FDA?
    8. Why isn't money competency taught in schools?
    9. Why have college costs exploded in the last 20 years? What are the colleges spending the money on?
    10. Why do we ignore the trashing of our oceans and spend all of our time debating how much humans are increasing global temperature?

    You will notice not one of the topics mentioned a Democrat or a Republican. Our media in focusing exclusively on Presidential politics is doing us a great disservice and are certainly not doing their job.

    He drives the news cycle with his tweets and outbursts! Never before has a president so blatantly disregarded the dignity of the office he holds. Never before has a president been polled on, or gotten a majority response to the question 'Is he a racist?'.

    We elected, for better or worse, a reality television game show host. What did you expect? Statesmanship?

    And where does most of the heroin in the US come from? And from 1999 to 2016 .. opioid ODs went up 5 times. Its much more than Gun related deaths or Auto mobile related deaths.

    So. News broadcasters need viewers, and they have learned that Trump stories gets viewers. It’s no more complicated than that.

    So you hold Donald J. Trump as the paragon of moral virtue? Or are you selling moral relevance as a defense?

    Because it sells, because it's entertaining and because it's what people want to watch and talk about.

    Trump knows this.

    It’s like a car wreck on the freeway; you gotta take a look. Both are disasters.
