A fascinating look at how @MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain broke the Media and side stepped it’s typical gatekeepers.
Time and time again the staff here at NobodyisFlyingthePlane sees hints of the good that can come from this election cycle madness we’re witnessing. Feel the Bern is shaking the left and Trumpapalooza is breaking the right. But its just as the writer says; a controlled burn intended to clear out dead wood can burn neighborhoods. Each bit of good news has a potential dark side.
The breakdown of the Media’s ability to control info comes with the loss of importance of fact checking and truth becomes a purchaseable commodity. The possible implosion of the two party system creates the potential for third party candidates to syphon votes from one side only. The ability to run without corporate funding means that the most likely candidates to do so are obscenely wealthy to begin with.
