Donald Trump laissez faire presidential campaign

Perhaps, at one time, Donald Trump owned a dog who compusivley dug holes to find bones. If he did, he probably figured out, by watching this canine behavior, how the news media can be just like dogs digging for bones.
New media journalists keep asking Donald Trump to tell the truth. They're like dogs digging for bones, because they keep creating craters while giving away free political ad time.

Donald Trump built his campaign to be elected the leader of the free world on his outrageous practice of telling "The Big Lie", and then leaving the wrong minded degridation hanging while the media persues the truthful information. 

In other words, he's using the marketing made infamous by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously." 

For the media, The Big Lie amounts to yellow journalism used by Trump for political purposes, capitalizing on the free media advertising resulting from the impact. 

This is how it happens. Donald Trump is interviewed and allowed unlimited free time to respond to lies that he has created! It's a cunning strategy and one the media seems intent on following, like desperate dogs digging for bones.

What's most disturbing about this wrong minded strategy is that after Donald Trump tells lies, he then calls them back without regard for his behavior. His laissez faire (ho-hum) attitude about telling lies never seems to be called into question.  

Rather, the lies spin follow up calls for media intereviews. Obviously, the calls are welcome, because anytime Trump can claim the limelight, he doesn't much care what topic he must defend. So, NBCNews journalist and anchor Lester Holt hostedprime time coverage with Donald Trump. Sure, Holt asked Trump to defend the lies told during his "I'll get you, my little pretty....." lie filled speech about Secretary Hillary Clinton. But, skillful at "The Big Lie", Trump didn't answer any questions but  just glossed over Holt's drilling. 

In other words, Holt gets a C-or putting Trump in prime time news without getting him to tell the truth.

Trump's laissez faire response to Holt just contriubted to "The Big Lie" strategy.  

It's time for the news media to stop giving away free media time to Donald Trump, especially while he continues to perpetrate lies without evidence and provides no information voters can use to determine his qualifications to lead the free world.  

For example, Lester Holt never asked Donald Trump about when he will release his income tax information. Instead, Holt just allowed Trump to continue to perpetrate lies by not answering any question truthfully.

In my opinion, the news media created the Trumponian monster by giving away (by some estimates) a billion dollars in free advertising. Now, it's time to give Secreatary Hillary Clinton the same and equal amount of time.
