“I have one question, though. Why do we allow the media to keep showing him on TV?” Streisand asked host Maher. “Why are we covering his rallies? He’s had 71 rallies.”
Maher said it was because “there’s money in it.”
“The media used to be a loss leader; they didn’t care if covering the news made money. And now it has to report to the stockroom like everybody else,” he said.
Streisand replied: “That’s so sad to me. Don’t cover him.”
Exactly. The media gave Trump over $2 billion worth of free press in the run up to the 2016 election, and they've learned absolutely nothing since. They're still allowing him to lead all of them around by the nose.
