Common Slams Trump Coverage: ‘The Integrity Of The Media Is Gone’
Donald Trump’s media coverage has been nothing but a circus since the start of his campaign. Of course, Trump hasn’t helped his case, going over the top on several issues, making racist remarks about Mexicans, and bullying anyone who stands in his way.
Still, Trump has one supporter, the rapper-turned-actor Common, who is currently in Toronto for the Toronto International Film Festival.
The Huffington Post reports:
“I feel like the integrity of the media is gone in many areas because when you choose to be like, ‘We’re going to show Donald Trump because we know it’s about numbers,’ it’s like, where is the integrity of the journalists who know and will challenge these thoughts so that the American people can see truth and really have a good opportunity … to get behind someone who’s going to matter, who’s going to really be about affecting change and improving this country?”
