However, if Donald Trump should gain the Presidency, the public is going to need much more from the press than a sanctified "I'm sorry."
Already, the American people have suffered a kind of abuse from the toxic comments of D. Trump. What it would suffer under a Trump administration is unthinkable.
The Kristof piece, however, is helpful in giving facts and statistics. The very idea that the media provided Trump with $1.9 billion (that's billion with a "b"), is completely horrifying.
Of course, other Republican candidates could not be said to have been exactly impressive. But what of the Democrats? Why did they not get this level of "publicity?"
The regrets, while appreciated, are too little, too late.
God help America.*
