The media should use the same language for Trump's pandering to corporations and failure to publicly condemn white supremacist violence as they do for his supposed collaboration with Russia.



While polls show that the majority of Americans say protection of the environment should be a priority, the Trump administration colludes with industry lobbyists to do exactly the opposite, granting, for example, nearly all the items on a wishlist drawn up by the American Petroleum Institute within Trump's first year in office.

Isn't it collusion when an administration puts at least 41 fossil fuel industry flacks in jobs where they can strip public regulationss to boost private profits?

If it's collusion when it’s with the Kremlin, why is it cronyism when the White House consorts with corporations to hijack the world’s most powerful public office to serve (undisclosed) private interests?
