NYT’s Kurt Andersen Says Americans Haywire in Fantasyland to Elect Trump Longs for Days of Purple Tie Monopoly


On Morning Joe, the NYT’s Kurt Andersen was schlepping his new book about how Americans will believe anything to have voted for Trump, that the proliferation of information on the web has caused our political system to go haywire, yet the days he longs for when there were only three TV networks and a few influential newspapers such as the failing New York Times proffering the establishment line were the days when worthy news would never be known by the public, the days when such as Andersen and the rest of the purple-tie crowd monopolized the dissemination of information.
