When has a Republican presidential candidate _ever_ called out or otherwise criticized corporate mass media, for any purpose or reason?
Trump Calls Out 'Corporate Media' West Palm Beach, Florida Live Speech 10/13/2016
from Trump/Pence rally at South Florida Fair Expo Center in West Palm Beach, Florida on October 13th 2016.
starts around 9:00 into speech —
"... the most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media — 'the press'. Let's be clear on one thing: the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They're a political special interest, no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity, with a total political agenda; and the agenda is not for you [points to audience], it's for themselves.
The same day President Obama indirectly retorts to Trump, millions of his followers (and perhaps ? others...)
Obama: "Wild, Wild West" Media Platform Must End
author: Agence France-Presse
President Barack Obama decried America's "wild, wild west" media environment for allowing conspiracy theorists a broad platform and destroying a common basis for debate.
"We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to," Obama said at an innovation conference in Pittsburgh on Thursday October 13.

Sifting through the maze of ideas and intentions from opposing political sides can be extremely exhausting for the modern, conscious, self educated American individual. As such, I don't completely blame our local loudmouth kiddos for their mistaken projections of identity upon the two major candidates. It is funny though, that an area of the country where the people are supposedly fiercely anti-corruption and anti-globalization, could produce so many that were blinded to truth by the attack machine of the Clinton left. Perhaps their rigidity towards ever voting anything but Democrat left them incapable of seeing a real choice between the establishment on the "left", and the person occupying the party of the "right". Whatever the case, we're seeing what impact the compromised media has on those willing to drink it down, and it's a particularly deep impact. At least the exposure of the underbelly doth continue...
This from a free-thinking Portlander, not a surrogate of any party.
