Media and Reality

Of all the caricaturing journalistic jargon I’ve read since Donald Trump got into the contest to be the Republican candidate for president of the United states in 2016 I’ve noticed two bits of writing saying something about reality. One piece by a New York Times reporter confessing that he hadn’t taken Mr. Trump’s candidacy seriously says that he should have known that Mr. Trump’s candidacy was real and that it represented the force of a great number of voters’ discontent, supporters that Mr. Trump would betray.

The other report of political reality that I noticed online just yesterday were of words spoken by Democrat Mr. Sanders who was depicted as having said almost imploringly that the poor do not vote.
