in general

Media is the opposition party? They better be.

If your plan is to blow up the status quo, under the shroud of secrecy, lies, conflicts of interest, and borderline incompetency… all while catering to white supremacists, misogynists, xenophobia, and other deplorable hate groups in our society, you better damn well hope the media is the opposition group — keeping the government in check and regular citizens informed. No amount of pressure and oversight is too much, because unchecked power is dangerous and a threat to democracy.
