The media has been a scapegoat for many when they have nobody else to blame, because they are a vague description of the source of information for the population. Presidential candidate Donald Trump is no exception to that observation, blaming the media for his shortcomings at the polls. This article by Philip Bump of the Washington Post points out Donald Trump’s lack of active campaigning while he simultaneously goes at the media for having the poll numbers move to his opponent, Hillary Clinton’s favor. The article links multiple Trump tweets, which is one of Trump’s only form of communicating with the American people, and dissects the context of the tweets’ subejcts. When it comes down to the facts, Trump’s media scapegoating is just a cop out for his poor campaigning skills, and that is his real campaign downfall.
