Hair Furor Floats Idea Of State Television Network

We already have a state network, but whatever.

Deadline reports:

Donald Trump, as we’ve known for 40 years, hates to cede the spotlight. So just as NASA was making an ultra-rare successful Mars landing that was carried live on some outlets, the president of the United States decided to float the idea of a state-run television network “to show the world the way we really are, GREAT.”

Trump’s idea — or that of whomever he heard say it this morning — would be laughable if it weren’t so ludicrous. And authoritarian. His first tweet is a slam at CNN, which “doesn’t do great based on ratings, outside the U.S.,” and he appears to think the real ratings gold could come from Citizens of the World being told what’s really going on here in ‘Murica.
