In his latest column, “How Trump Could Delegitimize Clinton’s Presidency,” CUNY Journalism Professor Jeff Jarvis, laments that the party that put Trump into power needs to be transformed for a healthy democracy to move forward.

Jarvis said that Trump and his party have displayed continual ignorance and hatred, which, in trying to appear balanced, the media has normalized by grazing over Trump’s grave infractions while building up Clinton’s minor ones, to give the election a sense of conflict and suspense.

Jarvis argues that with Trump the party has crossed a point of no return, and needs to rebuild itself from the ground up to create a true conservative party that represents the interests of a diverse base. To read the article, click here. 

Jarvis is a leader in journalism who has written several books about its changing business model, including Geeks Bearing Gifts, about the future of the news media. To order the book, click here.
