US Main Stream Media Crash and Burn Watch

Incredibly, The Washington Post Pulls out Orwell's 1984 and points the finger firmly at Trump after 3 days in office.    Wow.

After 8 years of Obama dismantling the Constitution, they play the 1984 card now.   Wow, just wow.

Why Orwell’s ‘1984’ matters so much now

Donald Trump may not be a big reader, but he’s been a boon for sales of dystopian literature. Amid our thirst for adult coloring books and stories about missing girls and reincarnated puppies, some grim old classics are speaking to us with new urgency. Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451 ,” Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World ” and Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale ” have all risen up the latest paperback bestseller list.

So yesterday Trump announced leaving the TPP and will renegotiate NAFTA or cancel it if Mexico and Canada don't make it fair for USA

And in Australia, 5 murdered using an automobile, intentionally.   No details on the perpetrator.

I got these from a Japanese site JIJI.

But at NBC there is no mention of either.    Just "Trump still won't release his tax returns" it is shameful.    http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/donald-trump-will-not-release-tax-returns-white-house-adviser-n710511

How about ABC?  Nothing on these important stories, but plenty on "Women Marching Against Trump"

How about Google....nothing on the important stories but they do have "The costs of a Trump-Branded Reality".

Now in the Japan Crash and Burn watch, they have a severe problem with population decline, and in an astoouding act of stupidity, they make is harder for people to get married and have babies.    Surely this incredible act of ploitical correctness is misguided at best.   In order to make it fair for females, who priot to this could decide to get married at 16, they now have to wait until 18 so that is equal to the boys.
