Here’s why we’re getting Donald Trump

Donald Trump NBC

Don’t forget: The news media shoves Donald Trump in our faces for one reason only: Ratings. He gets ratings. That’s what journalism is all about. When capitalism took over the journalism part of the media, information became secondary to entertainment. Even now we don’t call it “news” much anymore, we refer instead to “news shows.”

And that’s all Americans really want: a show. We want everything to be a reality show, because that’s all America is anymore. We don’t want to be informed, we just want to be entertained. Donald Trump SHOULD be our president because he is precisely what we deserve.
