'Collusion was a seductive and convenient delusion.  The ease with which a racist, misogynist, serial con man  slipped past every gatekeeper in American life suggests something deeply sick at the core of society.The Mueller investigation sucked up all the political energy. In the years we’ve spent chasing the fantastical ghosts of collusion, we have all but ignored the structural weaknesses plaguing every corner of the American establishment, from its political parties to its news media to its tilted economic landscape and, most important, the unfair machinery of its democracy. Trump was the corrupt, misbegotten choice of a citizenry mired in partisan mistrust, seething with racial grievance, informed by a beleaguered and fracturing news media, and laboring under an economic and political system that had long ceased functioning for all but the wealthiest of its citizens.'

"Finally there was the plainer constitutional failure. You didn't need a two-year federal investigation to determine the single most important lesson of the 2016 race: America does not treat all its voters, and all of its votes, equally. Across the country, the voices of thousands and possibly millions of people were suppressed . Millions more votes went essentially uncounted, because the perversities of the Electoral College elevate a few thousand votes in the Midwest over a few million in California."

"From here, the story of 2016 looks rather straightforward: Mr. Trump was the corrupt, misbegotten choice of a citizenry mired in partisan mistrust, seething with racial grievance, informed by a beleaguered and fracturing news media, and laboring under an economic and political system that had long ceased functioning for all but the wealthiest of its citizens."

I am shocked! The NYT actually allowed a factual article on its pages, albeit from a guest, and nonfavored ethnic group. And I could have paid them for two years of subscriptions before seeing a useful story. Nope, they still won't convince me to pay them, if they lie most of the time on issues that really matter.
