The media

The news services still exist, all over the world, primarily dedicated to reporting on events, exposing corruption where it occurs (even in media organizations), and unmasking official falsehoods. They raise a voice against officialdom, when the official story runs away from the truth. They have the power to speak for people whose voices are ignored by the powerful.

But there are those whose interest lies in discrediting those reports, calling them “der lugenpresse” or “fake news.” The press will still be around next year, and in the years following.

Trump won’t.
