Will Oremus from Slate perfectly captures Trump’s news cycle on On The Media:
The Trump campaign is a denial of service attack on the entire media.
If you have enough outrageous stuff going on at once, there’s no way the media can cover all of it, and all of it gets covered much less than it would otherwise.
The same thing is happening in my brain. I’d love to write about going to see the live Paw Patrol with my family tonight, or post a picture of an awkwardly-worded sign I saw downtown, or even something something brands, but I’m not sure what I could possibly write about that wouldn’t seem frivolous in the face of the badly written, unrealistically-over-the-top movie that’s currently governing the US.
