WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Speaking at Williams College on Thursday evening after a day rallying students to join government institutions and change them . . . former Vermont governor and national Democratic leader Howard Dean said for corporate media it's all about money -- but that's beginning to change. "They know what they did" to elevate President-elect Donald Trump's candidacy, he said.
Dean critized the media for not "calling out" Trump for telling untruths and he said some media organizations were influenced by the fact that they could make more money by featuring Trump and spiking ratings. "The press is a failed institution in this country," he said. "But the media are [now] learning. They know what the did."
Most of his talk, however, was aimed at inspiring students. Trump's election was not a repudiation of youth values, he says, it was a recognition that millions of Americans have been left behind.
