Duelling foundations

Until recently, no one in the newsmedia looked into Donald’s foundation and how he used it. Now that journalists are finally doing that, it’s easier to compare the real problems with Donald’s foundation against the imaginary ones with the Clinton Foundation.

In the video above, John Oliver talks about both foundations and where the real problems are. It shows that while Clinton did some things in a sloppy way, there was nothing criminal. That cannot yet be conclusively said about Donald and his foundation.

The important thing here, really, is that the news media are finally looking into Donald’s record and his background and—not surprisingly—problems and major concerns are emerging. Holding would-be officeholders accountable is what journalism is supposed to be about. It’s good to see the media finally doing that for BOTH candidates.
