I do think the people voted for the wrong guy. The question is why. Part of the reason is that most people, both the well educated and the less educated, still believe that what they hear on the news or read in the newspaper is the truth. It took several years for a friend of mine to convince me that the "New York Times," to name one egregious example of a newspaper that confuses the editorial page and the front page, is not my father's "New York Times". (My father died in 1972, when the "New York Times" was still a reputable newspaper. I don't know what it will take to convince the majority of the people that the media cannot be trusted.
