It is not a fake news problem. It is a news problem.

“To the question, If the media were to cover the election again, with the benefit of hindsight, could we expect anything different? my answer is a sobering no.”

Jamie Dimon Talks Trump

“I think it’s a reset moment for how businesses are going to be treated: 145 million people work in America; 125 million of them work for private enterprise; 20 million work for government—firemen, sanitation, police, teachers. We hold them in very high regard. But you know, if you didn’t have the 125 you couldn’t pay for the other 20. Business is a huge positive element in society. But for years it’s been beaten down as if we’re terrible people. So I think it’s a good reset.”

Worth a read.
