We Are So Screwed

So, after the Republicans voted to abandon all pretense of ethics accountability, Donald Trump tweeted about it, because of course he did, and—surprise, surprise—the corporate media utterly mischaracterized Trump's tweets in order to give him favorable headlines.

As I noted at Shareblue: "The bitter irony is that this is coverage of a story about Congressional Republicans weakening ethics accountability just as the aggressively unethical Trump is about to be inaugurated. In one fell swoop, we see that Congress will not provide checks and balance on a Trump presidency, and neither will the press. Which could not work out better for Trump, nor worse for us."
