The Power (and the weakness) of the Press

Just to underscore how the media prioritizes "news," all the major stations are reporting that "Four prisoners being released from Iran including Wapo reporter Jason Rezalan." The other three don't carry the same weight in their minds so they emphasize that one of their own were released. In order to get their attention you have to make it about them somehow. Ted Cruz pointed that out in an early debate on immigration and it is the method Donald Trump uses almost daily to keep the press following his every move.
