Sometimes I talk to the president of the United States in my head. It always starts the same way: Dude, let me get this straight. This time it's his Russia-FBI-DNC dossier theory, but really, it's about how he represents everything that has gone wrong. Donald Trump is exactly as strong as the lies that sustain him.
Recent polling shows that confidence in mainstream media has declined a great deal, plummeting to just 25 percent of Americans who say they trust TV news alone. By prioritizing ratings over the dispersal of useful information, corporate media outlets have failed to keep Americans informed about the critical issues of our times.
Trump's environmental record as president, and as a businessman, is abysmal, say critics. His attempt to defund the US Energy Star program, they say, is typical of a compulsion to protect his self interest -- Energy Star has given poor ratings to nearly all of Trump's hotels, which has possibly impacted his bottom line.
