NY Times: Is Donald Trump a Threat to Democracy?

We must be vigilant. The warning signs are real.

The problem here is, the media is rolling over and exposing its neck. Benghazi investigations slam shut, and not a peep except on the back matter of the news? Isn't it worth at least a week of public shaming? And not calling out our President-elect for aping Don Corleone ... "Come meet me in my Tower. You want to do business with my Administration. What is the interest for my family?"

Those who remember the Reagan era, remember a similar situation. Only then, the FCC was in the process of releasing and auctioning parts of the broadcast electromagnetic spectrum. Every news org wanted a piece, and noone wanted to piss off the Administration. So Reagan got a pass. There was no really objective coverage of his Administration for years.
