Will No One Rid Me of this Vexacious Press?

In its "All Trump, All the Time" coverage of our 45th President, Donald Snowflake, CNN, and in particular New Day's Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota have given Donald just what he's seeking--constant exposure on a level which would leave Big Brother green with envy.

NPR, the News Hour, institutions which should know better, swim along in this current, none of them being smart enough or civic minded enough to resist the easy story which is always out there, right in front of them in the form of a 140 character daily morning tweet.
The essence of the Snowflake--Pia Guerra

Why not just report: "Donald Trump tweeted this morning." End of story
Walter Cronkite brought down Jimmy Carter's Presidency by opening every broadcast with "This is the ...day of captivity for the American hostages in Tehran," and our news people could do the same: "Another tweet," and move on.

I can remember clearly back to John F. Kennedy's presidency when my mother used to race home to see his news conferences, which were held intermittently and were an event.  I can remember every President since but no President has ever dominated the news the way Donald Snowflake does. Every day, every news broadcast begins with the words, "Donald Trump." He is never out of sight or out of earshot.

The decision makers at each show could end this, if they weren't lazy and timid. They could simply ignore him, allow him to have his tantrum, locked up in his room, and visit him only at their discretion.

As it is, they are enablers of the most pathetic sort.
