Election 2016

From Paul Krugman:
The election was rigged by mainstream news organizations, many of which simply refused to report on policy issues, a refusal that clearly favored the candidate who lies about these issues all the time, and has no coherent proposals to offer.
I am frustrated that we as a country seem to lack the ability to have decent policy-focused discussions that might lead to compromise, progress, and maybe even a closer sense of community, but it's pretty galling for a member of the "mainstream news" to complain that [they] "simply refused" to report on policy.
