It is a very minor, negligible story in the news today, that the President Elect of the United States agreed to pay $25 million dollars to "settle" fraud charges against himself, thereby admitting their truth, since no one can be stupid enough to come to any other conclusion in this case.
Hillary having done something with her e-mails, which eluded millions of dollars of Republican "investigations" designed to find anything wrong that she did, on the other hand, was subjected to literally thousands of stories in the mainstream press about this utterly bogus issue. Take a look at this little chart, from Media Matters:
This is why we now must face a would-be dictator in the White House. Essentially, this is the only reason. And let us remember that reporting like this is one hundred percent the result of actions by Ronald Reagan and Newt Gingrich to allow essentially our entire mainstream press to be bought by a minuscule number or rich Republican sociopaths. That too, by the way, is of course a story not worth covering.
People who voted for President this year voted for either fake malignant Hillary or a fake whitewashed Trump. This is not anyone's idea of a fair election; it is a carefully paved steppingstone from democracy to totalitarian rule. Until this sort of "free" press is crushed, the United States that has existed since the eighteenth century is dead. And let me make myself clear, that the term "free" as applied to our current media only means the freedom of hyper-rich criminals to own the press and use it for their own purpose, which is to enrich themselves further at the expense of everyone else, and use the government to crush anyone that stands in their way.
Unfortunately, I see exactly zero way to change what we now have in the way of a free press, so I predict that if democracy ever rises again in this country, it is going to be after a period of dictatorship, followed by a vicious rebellion of some sort, because the Trumps and McConnells and Paul Ryans of this world are never going to give it to them voluntarily.
