Death of the Media
“Four states are poised to cancel their 2020 GOP presidential primaries and caucuses, a move that would cut off oxygen to Donald Trump’s long-shot primary challengers.
“Republican parties in South Carolina, Nevada, Arizona and Kansas are expected to finalize the cancellations in meetings this weekend, according to three GOP officials who are familiar with the plans.”
But then, they goof and say (emboldening mine):
“The moves are the latest illustration of Trump’s takeover of the entire Republican Party apparatus. They underscore the extent to which his allies are determined to snuff out any potential nuisance en route to his renomination — or even to deny Republican critics a platform to embarrass him.”
Trump did not take over any apparatus, he got more RNC delegate votes than any candidate in GOP history. The Russian Usurper is not a symptom, he is the party and the party is him, and the sooner Politico realizes this, the better their coverage will be.
