"New Post-Truth Era"

Dawn of the day before the 2016 election.

Dan Rather says on CNN that we're in "a new post-truth era in American politics, where truth no longer matters."

Television news media in this past year have jumped on dt's words but not done investigative journalism.

Case in point:  FBI Director James R. Comey cleared Hillary Rodham Clinton of any criminal wrong-doing in her emails, but "Republicans brushed off Comey's findings and continued to accuse Clinton of poor judgment and negligence...."

They are still repeating the charges--though she's been cleared.

There's no time for full and accurate reporting of this new development in order to inform the public.  Many have already voted.

It's more than I can bear.

May it all end.  

May she be elected by a huge landslide. 

May dt be defeated more soundly than Goldwater was in 1964.

He says "let the people judge" the emails, but of course he will claim that losing the election in a landslide for Hillary Clinton was just because it's "rigged."

It's more than I can bear.
