One piece of good news is that the progressive media has become energized and is preparing for the Trump presidency.
Every cloud has a silver lining, and presidency of Dubya launched many liberal news organizations, such as The Young Turks, Air America (which shuttered in 2010 after Obama became president), and Talking Points Memo joined longer term progressive organizations, like Mother Jones and the Huffington Post. But things fell off during the Obama presidency.
But now, they are all hiring staff. The best news is that they are particularly beefing up their investigative reporting staff. They have been able to do this because donations and subscriptions are up sharply, and they have not fallen off since the election. In fact, they are still increasing.
It is vital that we have a strong media to hold Trump accountable. If you have thought about supporting these organizations in the past, do it again. We need this now more than ever.
