The GOP, in putting Trump at the top of the ticket, is endorsing a brand of populism rooted in ignorance, prejudice, fear, and isolation.

The point is not that these stories have never been covered, because they have. The point is that they get covered briefly then everyone in the media moves on. If any of these kinds of stories involved Clinton, news organizations would rush to assign multiple reporters to them, those reporters would start asking questions, and we’d learn more about all of them.

That’s important, because we may have reached a point where the frames around the candidates are locked in: Trump is supposedly the crazy/bigoted one, and Clinton is supposedly the corrupt one. Once we decide that those are the appropriate lenses through which the two candidates are to be viewed, it shapes the decisions the media make every day about which stories are important to pursue.

This means that to a great extent, for all the controversy he has caused and all the unflattering stories in the press about him, Trump is still being let off the hook.

Hillary Clinton is smarter, more experienced, and better prepared than any person to ever run for President. She has a history of nearly 50 years of public service. According to many recent polls the public seems ready to elect Clinton, perceived flaws and all, while the media appears to be having a really hard time with that.
