The mission of a free press is to gather and report all the facts. Then let the people decide. They are derelict in this duty.
Instead, they inflate every real or imagined scandal or flaw of President Trump into nation ending catastrophe. About 90 percent of those polled no longer trust the mainstream media.
However, the mainstream media has helped polarize the country into two diametrically opposed camps.
"The Resistance" will believe anything bad about President Trump. They also despise free speech, cops, capitalism, etc. This group is extremely dangerous, as they riot often, and their fringe elements contain FBI-certified terrorist groups.
The New Alt-Right is massively diverse but united in one thing. They vehemently dislike "The Resistance." "Nice people" haven't been so whipped up since Bleeding Kansas.
The script for what is going on is an old one. The press helps stir the plot. The radicals break heads in the streets. A savior comes to push aside the corrupt regime and take power in the name of the people. A tyrant takes over.
I don't know if we have a liberal press blinded by hate, or a bunch of romantic fools who don't know what they are doing, but they must stop their vendetta.
A free press is there to keep us free by keeping government transparent, not to ferment hostility and chaos.
