The public’s newfound distrust of the mainstream media has caused long-term damage to faith in the Fourth Estate that will take years to undo. What’s happened to The New York Times? What’s happened to the major networks? It’s an outrage.
I’m a professor of media studies, in addition to being
a professor of humanities, OK? And I think it’s absolutely grotesque
the way my party has destroyed journalism. Right now, it’s going to take
decades to recover from this atrocity that’s going on where the news
media have turned themselves over to the most childish fraternity, kind
of buffoonish behavior.”
