The media's responsibility is not only to report the facts, but to do so in a truthful and balanced manner. Too often it does not, preferring to perpetuate controversies to gain readership or ratings.
No one believes more in Donald Trump than Trump himself.
In an age where being politically correct and standing up for social justice are seen as weaknesses, those that are victims of social injustice are often berated with slurs, insults, and threats through social media.
Lost in the shuffle of the viral memes, internet jokes, and a Facebook fan page is a basic question: Who is Ken Bone and what does he do for a living?
The second 2016 Presidential debate just finished and a new meme is emergent: #KenBone.
Hillary Clinton wasn't as dominant against Donald Trump in comparison to the first debate, but her opponent with his unhinged responses that went all over the place convinced me that on the whole Mrs. Clinton won.
That's the daily story today about Trump, who has managed to place obscene four- and five- letter words on the front pages of newspapers the day before a nationally televised debate with Hillary Clinton that he really must win to remain in contention for president of the United States.
This will be shorter than usual, because vice presidential debates don't matter nearly so much, witness Senator Lloyd Bentsen's annihilation of Senator Dan Quayle in 1988 with his "Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy" reference to Quayle, yet George H.W. Bush still beat Michael Dukakis.
