Address what?  There’s nothing presented to support the claim or account for it. I was born in 82 and I make more now than my parents combined at the peak of their careers. I also moved away from Appalachia and got a college degree, something they didn’t.

And your individual experience is evidence of what?

Nothing. But you’re taking the headline of an alleged study that isn’t available to you, that makes no effort to explain why or prove its claims, and ask why aren’t we doing anything about it.

My point is that the claim of the article isn’t substantiated, let alone understood enough to the point to take action as your posts suggests you desire.

You mean you missed the links with all the research and evidence?

You keep saying media when what you really mean is broadcast news.

With all due respect, the print media journalists are all over cable news.

Not trying to be combative. What is the sample size of their study?

Pelosi’s town hall is surprisingly good. It appears she’s certainly got the message Democrats need to offer ideas and not just be anti-Trump.

No newspaper has had “endless hours” of Avenatti coverage in weeks, since the initial story broke. I guarantee you you cannot find one newspaper with any prominent, let alone substantial coverage of him today, tomorrow, or in recent days.

Print media journalists on TV do not reflect the actual coverage in their newspapers, they are there because it is their “beat” or area of expertise, just like when sportswriters appear on ESPN.

Where to even start. I've never seen news as such volume, such velocity. Some of this is almost old news now. Either way, all hell is breaking loose:

Trump's quid pro quo slush fund with Cohen has been busted wide open. Ukraine paid 400k to have access with Trump. Cohen requested a million dollars from a Qatar investor for access to Trump. The lead attorney for Navartis quit after their payments to Trump came to light. AT&T also fired their chief lobbyist about a week ago. A South Korean aerospace company was also exposed for paying Trump/Cohen 150k. The same company who just so happened to be competing for a Pentagon contract. Stormy Daniels (and other women) was just a small piece of this abject criminality perpetrated by President Trump. We're just seeing this now, but it's clear that Mueller has known about this for some time.

Just a few days ago, Cohen's old business partner made a deal with the Feds for tax evasion. A sweet deal, simply probation after facing years in prison. Which means he's going to tell them everything he knows about Cohen and all his shenanigans.

It's come to light that Cambridge Analytica is also under FBI investigation. And the whistleblower in the case told Congress last week that one of Steve Bannon's uses for their firm was to disengage black voters. Voter suppression.

The bi partisan Senate Intel Committee concluded that Russia did help Trump win the election. This really makes the GOP Congress look like a bunch of clowns, which of course they are.

Trump Jr. contradicted himself in his most recent interview. Which means he was lying to the Senate originally about any foreign governments offering to help the Trump campaign. Once again it also shows he willingly and eagerly went to meet with Russians in Trump Tower to get dirt on Hillary.

Kushner was interviewed again this week, but this time for nearly 7 hours.

Turns out the Feds were so alarmed by Trump and his pal’s connection to Russia they were even investigating them during the election. They even had an informant. Of course, now, the lying sack of shit we call "President" is claiming he was being "spied" on for absolutely no reason. Something his idiot base is going to repeat, even though it has no basis in reality or even makes any sense. Just like the Dossier said, and just like many other foreign countries told us, his connection to Russia was alarming. Enough for the FBI to launch a serious investigation.

I believe we're only seeing the tip of the iceberg here, and even with that, I can see Trump is absolutely 100% fucked. If Congress does anything remains to be seen. Right now I'd say that answer is absolutely not.

Don’t forget Trump canceling the North Korea summit one day then saying it is on again the next. He’s negotiating with himself. Meanwhile, NK is moving on without him, like the rest of the world is.
