Unless you are really really into history, schadenfreude or both, reading the whole thing is useless. A year ago the MSM was as confident as they are today that they knew and know everything. They are never wrong -- what they count on is this ...
“His view is the American public has a two-to-three-week attention span. He may be right about that."
Well, yes, the 24x7 media spin machine, mass marketing, shallow, inane "entertainment" that is closer to mind control than anything else, the media certainly, and maybe even Trump, count on the reality that most of the BOistan public has AT BEST a couple of weeks of attention span.
So most people still believe a lot of what they read in the "news" ... like this paragraph, from a year ago this week.
"In recent weeks, the mood at Trump Tower has veered between despair and denial—with a hit of resurgent glee when the news broke that the FBI was looking into more of Clinton’s emails. When I asked one senior Trump adviser to describe the scene inside, he responded: “Think of the bunker right before Hitler killed himself. Donald’s in denial. They’re all in denial.” (As Times columnist Ross Douthat put it, in a tweet, “In Trumpworld as Hitler’s Bunker terms,” the FBI investigation is “like when Goebbels thought FDR’s death would save the Nazi regime.”)"Yes folks, that is "real news", from the mainstream media -- it's WRONG to call it "Fake News", your attention span is supposed to be MUCH shorter than this!
Hey, and Ross "Doubt That" is still writing NY Times columns!
