I’ll just post this from Kevin Drum in its entirety (because it’s awesome):
Message to everyone: You don’t have to cover Donald Trump’s every move. Honest. If you’re going to whine and complain about how he’s sucking all the oxygen out of the race, then stop covering him unless he does something genuinely newsworthy. Which actually isn’t all that often.
For God’s sake, how hard can this be? If clickbait is all that matters to you, fine. But don’t pretend you’re being journalists if that’s all that’s driving you.
Not that I’m complaining about the coverage.
I mean, for liberals, Donald Trump has an Eric Cartman-like super power — turning your shocked disbelief into a guilty pleasure.
MSNBC would be insane not to cover this traveling carnival wall-to-wall.
