There's a lot of "NOT OUR FAULT" coming out from "the media" about Trump. I agree and disagree. That Trump is beloved by plenty of Republican primary voters is not surprising, and is not the fault of "the media." That news outlets violated their usual norms and let Trump just phone in, and that cable news just put the camera on him anytime he had a public event, is. He might have done as well without their help, but they helped him.
