Is is really these folks?
Admittedly at their worst, these people can be lazy, biased, and obsessed with sound bytes over substance.....but does that make them our 'enemy'? And besides, at their best, they are also the ones who have brought important information out of the shadows and fact-checked liars.
Or is it this person?
At her worst she is a smarmy, evasive, passive/aggressive liar. And at her best she is a smarmy, evasive, passive/aggressive liar. So......she's consistent. But to be fair, she is just doing her job just as the press is doing theirs.
And her near-impossible job is to try to make the shit that pours of of THIS guy's mouth sound reasonable and positive:
So this "enemy of the people" question really comes down to, not just character flaws, or nasty traits, or even veracity, but IMPACT. Of these candidates for 'enemy' only one has the power to make things happen or not happen versus just reporting (honestly or dishonestly) about it. And if that person enacts policies that threaten the very health of the planet, (like rolling back EPA standards) just to make it easier for corporations to make bigger profits, would HE not be the true "enemy of the people" everywhere?
