A couple additional thoughts: Are all the extremely conservative big-city newspapers that have almost always endorsed Republican presidential candidates (some for over a century) but have declined to endorse Trump, declaring him unfit for office, conspiring with Hillary's campaign?
It's not just the media. I've lost count of the groups of scores of prominent or eminent Americans--many of them Republicans---who have signed open letters denouncing Trump and, like the newspapers, declaring him unfit for the presidency. And it isn't just his treatment of women. That's actually one of the less important objections compared to his ignorance of international affairs, his racism, his disregard for the Constitution, his near-constant lying. His banana-republic threat to see to it that Hillary is jailed if he's elected should all by itself disqualify him from the presidency. And finally, his attempt to call in question the validity of the election--before it's even taken place--is just beyond the pale of acceptable behavior by a presidential candidate. Seems as though you think the media have been "trying to influence the election" by reporting all these things. They should have kept quiet about them, I guess, and just stuck with dumping on HIllary as they have for decades. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <authfriend@...> wrote : ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : Yes they have.

When the media openly declares it is their duty to stop him They haven't done that. and they conspire with her campaign, They haven't done that either. as is revealed in the Wikileaks e-mails, they are no longer objectively reporting the news but trying to influence an election. This will make it very difficult for Hillary to govern even if she is elected. Of course it's going to be very difficult for Hillary to govern. But not because the media have conspired with her campaign. It'll be very difficult for her to govern because of reflexive GOP resistance and the spreading of lies about her and about the media by the right wing, as well as the lies Trump will continue to spread about the election being "rigged" after she's in the White House. There will be a resistance to her presidency like has never been seen before.

Even though he seems certain to lose, I am still worried, because he is angry and unhinged and could cause a lot of trouble between now and Election Day, and also afterwards. He is openly saying the election is rigged, which is very dangerous. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote :
