There are two questions the Washington press corps must ask.   And please, if anyone has ever heard either of these questions being asked, let me know when and where and by whom.

Question 1 for Donald Trump:  Why do you insult people and call them names?

Question 2 for Donald Trump:  Why do you lie all the time?

More importantly, are two questions local reporters should be asking their members of Congress.

Question 1:  What do you think of Donald Trump calling people names and insulting them?

Question 2:  What do you think of Donald Trump lying all the time?

Silence by members of Congress indicates tacit approval.   Why do your members of Congress approve of such behavior?  But of course, your local reporters aren't asking those questions, particularly local TV reporters.   They aren't holding their members of Congress accountable.

Viewers:  call your local TV stations.   Ask them why their newsrooms aren't questioning their members of Congess on issue after issue.

We now have a country where the president lies, insults people, calls them names and our elected members of Congress say and do nothing about such behavior.   Our local reporters sit in silence and don't even question them about that.

When journalism fails, bad things happen.
