What would happen if all 'mainstream' media/news channels (CNN, NYT) agreed to ignore Trump? by Tony Garcia
Answer by Tony Garcia:
It is the duty of the mainstream media to inform the public on the activities of the president, even one who is openly hostile to the press. Ignoring this obligation is to allow public officials to work in secret, furthering their own agendas without regard to the opinions of their constituency. It also allows for the repetition of rumor and so-called fake news on social media to morph unchallenged into fact.
