    Although Nixon gradually became more deranged as his presidency wound down, Trump is FAR WORSE that Nixon ever was. It took a lot of courage for Catherine Graham to publish "the Pentagon Papers", just as it takes a lot of courage today to criticize the porn star's boyfriend. Although there has been a lot of press on the war on "fake news" by domestic newspapers, today's edition of Al Jazeera had a VERY comprehensive summary:
