Their isn’t an autocrat in history that has not taken over the radio station, meaning media of course, before anything else.
“Donald Trump has threatened to “strongly regulate” or close down social media platforms that do not meet his standards for ideological balance, a day after Twitter, for the first time, slapped a warning label on a pair of Trump tweets spreading lies about mail-in voting.”
This president, who was made by the media, lives by the media, now wants to control it. Lawsuits against major papers and opinion writers were just the beginning.
Tossing IG’s who were doing their jobs, ignoring Congressional oversight, dumping regulations without even considering the impacts, encouraging and spreading conspiracies, purposely confusing Americans in an admitted tactic…and the list goes on.
The only comfort I can find is that he is honestly so ignorant of and uninterested in the real world around him, even if it is served up to him on a platter of pretty pictures for just a few minutes. And the results can be seen in the calls from the ranks of conservatives and influential Republicans to stop with the nonsense.
