Neal Katyal made a really good point last night [View all]

He said that cheato (a former POTUS for God's sake), was found guilty of contempt of court yesterday and that was not even the headline. Everyone just yawned. Of course it was mentioned, but it should have been the focus. It was the real news of the day.

Another example of this freak being normalized. This attitude by the corporate media does influence the public, whether we want to admit it or not.
