    • Ashlei,
      I totally agree with what you are saying, especially since there are so many things that aren’t talked about in the media that need to be heard. I also think that fake news is another epidemic that is helping take our attention away from the important stuff. I found an article, http://www.collegian.psu.edu/opinion/columnists/article_72125d36-24a3-11e7-8ee3-3f093d504cf9.html, that talks about media and how it distracts from the real issues much like the Trojan Horse. I also think that the athletes could have voiced their dismay towards are president in a way that did’t upset so many people, and even possibly did something about it. Thank you for writing this and I hope to read more from you.
