You must forgive your fellow lefties.

In the heat of the campaign and aftermath of the election, hard feelings prevail within our party and it is easy to blame fellow Democrats, progressives, lefties, Greens, for everything that went wrong.  I’ve done my share of it.

This video reminded me what really caused this.

Fact: The Corporate Media caused Donald Trump to become President.

Thom Hartmann is the only political analyst I know of who is saying this.

The directors and managers and producers of a small handful of immensely powerful and profitable media corporations made the decision a year and a half ago that the Donald Trump Show was more important to put on TV every day and every night than any actual news because the Doald Trump Show brought ratings, and ratings are the variable that determine what they can charge for advertising, which in turn determines their profitability. Les Moonves, Chairman of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Corporation, said to a group of CBS stockholders in an investor phone call, “Donald Trump may be terrible for America but he’s great for CBS.” The estimates are between 2 and 3 billion dollars that Donald Trump got in 2016 that helped him win the Republican primary first and then helped him win the White House. Literally billions of dollars in free media that was not given to Hillary, Bernie, Stein, or Trump’s primary opponents. Just Trump.

There’s much more. It will make you angry and it will make you forgive your fellow lefties no matter who they supported.
