Dear Ms. Ryan,

It is a waste of time to write about how bad Trump is.

The real question in front of us is why he got the votes. Next, why his approval rate hovers steadily around 45% not below 5%, as it should.

The most troubled question is where and how the major media outlets, as the Washington Post, failed in educating the public to the point that a person as Trump got elected and enjoys relatively high level of popular support.

In particular, I would like to know what you think about mistakes you made in your 21 years career as a journalist; mistakes that led us to the Trump presidency.

Obviously, you and the Washington Post share the blame with others the best and the brightest from the leading media outlets. In order to overcome the outcome one needs to take responsibility for it. It is your bad luck, that your complaints about Trump caught my attention.

You may ask how you and the Washington Post can be at fault. Some time ago, I explained this on the example of the Wall Street Journal. If you consider the Washington Post a paper of a comparable caliber, all what I wrote applies to you and the Washington Post as well. Here is the link:

Many tell us what we should think. I write to encourage my readers to think for themselves. I write to ask you to inquire. Question me. Have fun.
