Instead of making evidence-based investments in education, jobs, health care &housing that are proven to keep communities safe & prevent crime from occurring in the first place, our system has criminalized poverty, overpoliced &underserved Black &Latino communities..3/16

1. This piece by @davidsiders demonstrates a staggering lack of self-awareness by journalists that has become an all-too common and harmful theme in the Trump era.

‘The race for governor has turned into a scam’ - POLITICO apple.news/AnxQ-3pgbQ1mbL…
2. The press salivates over every new scandal coming out of the WH. DT’s abnormalities and authoritarian threats dominate #MSM outlets. Breadcrumbs from the Mueller investigation are turned inside and out. Quite simply, DT dominates the press. He likes it that way.
3. In the 2016 election cycle, the press began to engage in a practice that played no small role in the rise of Trump - an inconsistent and hypocritical style of coverage that helped mold the electorate into views steeped in false-equivalency.
