THE MEDIA'S CORPORATE WARFARE - DESANTIS VS. DISNEY, NEWSOM VS. WALGREENSMussolini. It’s true, as National Review says, that the Left is demanding "the media draw an equivalence between DeSantis and Trump." "But Mr. DeSantis almost certainly would not be worse than Mr. Trump… And if Mr. DeSantis does get the nomination, progressive overreaction toward him in the primary contest could ultimately undermine the case against him in the general election." The cause is to morph DeSantis into a younger but equally spine-chilling Trump. The wall of media opposition to Donald Trump back in 2015 and 2016 was not, it turns out, a singular event.
