1) falsely requiring a single Hollywood-style "smoking gun" on collusion
2) reporting breathlessly on a revelation anyone in Hollywood would call a smoking gun (Manafort's delivery of data to the Kremlin)
3) pretending we're still looking for collusion
2/ I mean wow, it's almost like Donald Trump calls media his greatest enemy when it's in fact a stalwart ally, and media claims to be looking as hard as it can for collusion when in fact it just wants to keep us *watching* its "search" for collusion as America goes down the drain
3/ And somehow it's now been a *year* I've been trying to call media's attention to a January '18 NBC report saying Trump thinks Manafort could sink him, which any attorney or journalist would consider key evidence Trump in fact *did* know what Manafort was up to with the Kremlin
4/ Our media culture simply isn't set up to have journalists say "we now have evidence of collusion," as they would lose viewers (right-wingers who don't want to hear bad news), bad media analysts (who'd wrongly say they're out over their skis), and entertainment value (suspense)
