But this election year, the bias is more than favoritism for the Democratic candidate. The media are going to great lengths to instigate a public hatred toward the Republican candidate.
Consider the remarks from Jonathan Allen of Roll Call, who called Donald Trump a “subhuman” who has a “blackened soul.” It’s too easy for someone on the edge to take those remarks and decide that something has to be done about such a person.
