Tweets Are Not "News"
The greedy mainstream American media created and enabled our Manchurian Candidate by covering his terrible tweets as legitimate communication. They're not, and the decision to treat them as "newsworthy" is a big mistake.
The media can correct their error by flatly refusing to cover his tweets in the future. Even though we're dumbed-down like never before, serious thought and real leadership require more than 140 characters. Only trolls and hucksters hide behind Twitter accounts.
Odds that the media might actually do this? Slim to none. But they should.
