Note to news shows: Focus on real issues!
Why do we have to talk about Trump?
I watch the newscasters every night discussing the latest, or replaying Donald Trump’s statement from last week, last month, last whenever. Then they ask why everybody talks about Trump!!
Here are some suggestions:
When Trump says “I will be wonderful to women” try some research on this. How well does he pay and promote women? What happens in the Trump organization when there is sexual harassment? (Even when it is from the top.)
For all of the candidates, from both parties:
What do you think should be done about the increasing income inequality in this country?
What do you think should be done about the cost of education?
What do you think should be done about the numbers of undocumented workers in our country?
What do you think the United States should do about the many refugees in the world from war, crime, poverty, terrorism, and persecution?
There are many other questions that could be asked, and the answers could get some followup research.
It would be a welcome break from shows in which a candidate appears, only to be asked about what he thinks about Donald Trump!
