Dear "Conservative" Media: 

Do Your Jobs. Start Vetting Trump Instead Of Using Him For Ratings

One of the best scenes in The Godfather happens when Vito Corleone is being asked a favor by his godson, the actor/singer Johnny Fontaine.

Let's re-imagine that dialogue a little bit to fit what's happened between the Conservative Media and Donald Trump for the past six months.

We all know what happened.  Megyn Kelly did her job testing Trump on his greatest vulnerability if he ends up pitted against Hillary Clinton & the DNC Media's #WaronWomen narrative.  

Trump threw a huge tantrum and Conservative media got the message loud and clear:  BACK OFF. 

And they did.  Like a bunch of whipped puppies, Conservative media launched a full scale retreat when it came to vetting Donald Trump.  Nobody has dared to ask him another #WaronWomen question.  

I get why DNC Media wont ask him yet. They are holding their fire as they try to engineer the Trump vs. Hillary match up they so desperately want. 

But hey Conservative media, what's YOUR excuse for not vetting Trump?  

Your ratings? SCREW YOUR RATINGS.  Do your job. This guy is a fantastically flawed candidate, he's gonna go down in flames in a general election when the Democrats go after him with #WaronWomen and his business failures 24/7 and by not speaking up now and doing your jobs you are ENABLING this. 

So what if Trump throws a tantrum and storms off the set & won't go on your shows any more? You spent 8 years lamenting nobody would vet Obama.  You're just a hypocrite if you let Trump coast to this nomination unvetted just so DNC Media can take him down with ease. 

As I discussed here yesterday, Trump is especially vulnerable on women.  He has decades of radio & TV interviews behind him where he said the most amazingly inflammatory & misogynistic statements.   Why is BUZZFEED the only one's mining this treasure trove that exposes Trump's biggest Achilles heel? 

You got something better to do, Conservative Media?  Like your bringing Trump on your show for an hour long free infomercial where you toss him softballs the night before every major primary? 

Too many of you in Conservative media are deliberately playing softball with this guy in exchange for ratings, and many Conservatives see exactly what you're doing.  You're selling out for a buck, the same thing you're always accusing DNC Media of doing. 

There's still time to stop Trump before he secures this nomination.  It can be done if Conservative Media quits using this guy for ratings and starts doing it's real job: informing the public about his ACTUAL record in business and his execrable behavior towards women. 

Do it now and prove you have some integrity.  Before the DNC Media does it for you starting in July.  


  1. "As I discussed here yesterday, Trump is especially vulnerable on women. "

    You missed another good point on him.
    His friendship and praise for Jeffrey Epstein (I'll assume you know the name). might not be a source I'd regularly use; but they do link back to original sourcing.

    "I've known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,'' Trump told New York magazine in a 2002 profile of Epstein written three years before Epstein began to be investigated. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

    Like that won't be fodder for the general election?
    Vice is likely in trouble for letting it out early.
