If you’ve been near a television, computer or newspaper over the past six months, you know it’s impossible to escape media coverage of Donald Trump. Beyond mere annoyance, this avalanche of attention has created a serious problem in media accountability.

Amy Goodman, host of  “Democracy Now!”, argues that the 24/7 Trump coverage is ruining the election. “We need a media that covers power, not covers for power,” she says, noting the imbalance in election coverage among the candidates in this year’s presidential race.

    Unfortunately, the coverage on Trump is all twisted against him. I tend to watch the full speeches, read the candidate website descriptions of their policies, and review history about the candidates. In doing this, it is obvious that Trump would be superior than the others in assisting Americans and America. Shame on the media!
