Presumptuousness, pompousness, entitlement, and condescension are among the worst of human qualities. They can be ascribed to an individual like Donald Trump or to a collective of people like American news media. I hate television news because they’ve grown accustomed to viewers taking them at their word. We need to remember that what we refer to as “the media” are still simply people in positions of power or if not power than influence. It’s a different kind of power than the kind which our current president wields but is just as dangerous when corrupted.
