The world if full of heroes. Firemen. Neonatal ICU nurses. Teachers. My Mom. Lots of heroes.

But who are the biggest goddamn damn heroes of all?

Why the media of course!

Because after months and months and months of letting Donald J. Trump literally phone-it-in and say whatever and passively pointing their cameras at Donald J. Trump (or at the Donald Trump billboard where Donald J. Trump may appear in the near future) the media has begun to nip furiously at the ankles of the monster they helped unleash.

From The Daily Beast:

"Has the Media Worm Finally Turned on Donald Trump?"

Donald Trump has had his roughest media week in the campaign, with journalists finally asking tough questions of the Republican candidate.

Is this the moment when the news media—at long last—has begun to hold Donald Trump to account?

And will the Republican frontrunner finally succumb to the accepted rules of politics he had previously flouted—an outcome the Washington establishment frequently predicts and desperately desires?

If so, the media will claim a fair share of the credit...




And for the record, there actually is a group of people who really have been onto Trump from the beginning and, more importantly, have been raising the alarm for decades about the toxic confluence of ignorance, rage and racism within the Republican Party that makes it such easy picking for fascists like Trump and theocrats like Raphael "Ted" Cruz.

This group is completely ignored by the Beltway Media, and known in the Conservative media as America-hating, God-trashing, terrorist-loving, cut-and-running, baby-killing, dirty Commie surrender-monkeys.

But you can just call us "Liberals".

Can you help us out?
