I won't be holding my breath. The media is no longer a group of outlets aligned 
around major population centers, with legitimate points of view, earned from 
years of regional focus. That version is gone. Now, media is concentrated among 
ten huge global corporations (see link) that decide what the rest of us see, 
hear, and read. Trump is one of theirs, so any scrutiny is for entertainment 
purposes, and advertising revenue gains, only.  

 Who cares if Trump insults a bunch of well paid corporate journalists? The 
corporations who employ them couldn't care less, as long as what he says 
generates headlines and controversy, and once again, advertising dollars for 
them. When the goal of the "news" outlets is to religiously turn a profit, any 
attempt at fair play or truth or real change, goes out the window. Fox was the 
case study, and the rest have followed suit.

 Just watched a few moments of Trump's media tirade and he actually points out 
and publicly ridicules individual member of the media that he says *lie* or 
manipulate the truth. It wasn't that long ago a New York Times piece was 
written about how he disrespects women. These women were interviewed and named. 
After the article was published, almost everyone of them refuted what had been 
printed and how they were portrayed and how Trump was portrayed. Trump fights 
back when he thinks he's unfairly attacked and he hits much harder than he was 
hit. Of course a disproportionate counter isn't *fair* in their minds.

 I think Trump just made one of the biggest mistakes of his doomed bid for the 
White House so far yesterday. When you completely alienate the media like that 
you do yourself no favors. I think the press is going to start to get a lot 
tougher with him now - they are like a band of brothers and while I blame them 
for having given him waaaaayyy too much air time and have contributed to his 
popularity due to high exposure I think we are about to see a significant shift 
in how he is dealt with and it will provide, among other things, another excuse 
for him to whine and snivel.

 As Maharishi used to say, "even a sick doctor can heal others". If Trump can 
identify problems in policy and have a reasonable remedy, he may be able to 
have a positive effect, as full of shit as he may be, personally. One of the 
reasons Trump has struck a note with the populace is that he calls a *spade* a 
*spade*. He identifies the problem and doesn't let political correctness 
prevent him from calling it out.He speaks what has always been  deemed 
*unspeakable* and it is a breath of fresh air to many when he does it. Just 
yesterday, he went on a tirade against the media and how dishonest and 
politically bias they are, something many people have recognized for decades, 
yet gave little voice to. He gives voice to what has been mulling around in 
people's minds but were afraid to say. It started with his stand on illegal 
immigration. He was nobody until he brought that up. He said Mexico isn't 
sending their *finest*. "they are sending murderers, rapists, drug dealers etc 
etc. Of course the media and Democrats spun it as *he is calling all Mexicans  
murderers, rapists and drug dealers*. And then you had an illegal alien  
criminal that had been deported 5 times shoot down a young woman in cold blood 
with no motive, while she was walking with her family in a public place and 
then stories like that started popping up all over the country. He identified a 
problem that no one would address.

 London (CNN)As one of the world's most renowned scientists, Stephen Hawking is 
regularly called on to help explain the universe's more mysterious phenomena.

 But asked to account for Donald Trump's political rise Tuesday, the British 
theoretical physicist was stumped.
 "I can't," Hawking told CNN affiliate ITV's "Good Morning Britain" program.
 "He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator."
 Well-off people always like to think there's something wrong with the 
electorate when someone they don't like gets elected. The trouble for you is 
Trump is giving a voice to the people who have been forgotten and sidelined in 
the rush for greater profits for management, Outsourcing and immigration really 
do affect life for the poorest in society so they get justifiably angry.

 The problem of course is that Trump is full of shit, he isn't a champion for 
the workers at all, as his campaign flags etc are made in China, the people who 
he employs as servants in his mansions aren't even allowed to talk to him. He's 
a fraud but that won't stop people fantasising that he's the man to save them. 
They do it because he appears to be an outsider like them, with no inconvenient 
contradictory record in government to spoil the illusion.
