Damn! I can't argue against your logic. Except to say, this xenophobic, white supremacist bullshit is suddenly normalized anyway. At least if it's forced into mainstream news programming, responsible broadcasters have the opportunity to confront it and oppose it directly.
The problem is they aren't exposed when they go on these shows. They are normalized. "Extreme" comments are chipped away at because they are never that extreme, as the people involved always pop back up. This Milo guy was a key figure in harassing a woman in large part because she was black, to the point where people hacked her just to humiliate her in the most personal way possible. And yet he still makes the rounds of talk shows, likely sitting and laughing it up with scum like Bill Maher when they aren't oncamera, because he's part of the circuit. Kellyanne Conway goes around spreading lies and inanity and insanity, but she still gets booked, no matter how much hypocrites like CNN or MSNBC pretend they are appalled, because she's also part of the circuit. That's not even getting into the lesser known carnival acts who pop up all over cable news.
It's a sick but mutually beneficial relationship. These people get more attention, the "shocked" networks and hosts get more ratings and go viral. Matt Lauer doesn't give a damn about Trump, but he gets to be a social media hero for a day because he tsk-tsks Kellyanne Conway.
They're playing us for fools.
RHOA was a mess tonight.
All I have say is that tonight solidified what I've always seen--Porsha is one big a** liar. She stayed bouncing from one lie to another when attempting to confront Kandi, and she came off poorly. Again, Porsha is playing herself into a corner and burning all bridges. I think this might be her swan song season.
