Is Trump or Hillary going to clean this up?; I doubt it. The "media" is guilty of an awful lot on what is happening in this country. Wake up America.
We have a free press in this country. Trump, Hillary, nor anyone else can "clean it up."
There are many, many things I dislike about modern media, but what I do love is that the government can't silence anyone.
I'm a student of history and I love reading old newspaper articles. If you think modern media is bad then head to your local library and pull up some of the shit they were writing in the newspapers before 24/7 media. Modern media is child's play compared to the things they were writing back then.
I also encourage you to read up on the media of many other countries. Many supposedly democratic European countries have state run media that regurgitates what the ruling party tells them to. You love to hate on America, but I encourage you to read up a bit on other "democratic" nations out there that use the media to solidify the power of the ruling elite.
Let's also try to keep this thread on topic. It's not about your distaste for American media; it's about Roger Ailes being a serial molester.
