Did Press Coverage Create Donald Trump's Candidacy? We Discuss
Two of our political reporters sit down for an honest conversation about Donald Trump and all the media coverage he's received.By Kate Grumke, Zach Toombs | May 12, 2016
Kate Grumke: OK, so let me read some numbers for you. So Donald Trump has gotten $1.9 billion in free media coverage.
Zach Toombs: That's a lot.
KG: That's compared to the next closest one, Clinton with $746 million. So less than half. I have people that will ask me, "Why doesn't the media just not cover Trump?" They're like, "What if you just let it go black for a week?"
