Rapper Common Blast The Media For Giving So Much Attention To Donald Trump

Rapper Common Blast The Media For Giving So Much
Attention To Donald Trump  
BHR Hollywood Reports..........Since Donald Trump's emergence on the national political stage, many outlets have gone out of their way to cover everything the billionaire says or does on the campaign trail.

That level of coverage does not sit well with everyone, including rapper-turned-actor Common. While being interviewed by HuffPost Live at the Toronto International Film Festival, the
"Glory" singer blasted the way certain outlets have given so much attention to Trump.

 “I feel like the integrity of the media is gone in many areas because when you choose to be like, ‘We’re going to show Donald Trump because we know it’s about numbers,’

it’s like where is the integrity of the journalists who know and will challenge these thoughts so that the American people can see
truth and really have a good opportunity … to get behind someone who’s going to matter, who’s going to really be about affecting change and improving this country?”

Common also said he hopes the media will portray a wide range of candidates, allowing the citizens to make an informed choice.

Common: “If it so happens to be a Donald Trump … which I don’t believe it’s that person, then let the people decide that.

 But don’t just dwell on the spotlight and keep exploring the popularity of him just for numbers because eventually that’s going to just mess up the situation in the country if we do. It’s feeding into the big monster. 

So I think the media definitely has a responsibility.”
