Let's start here: Dan Rather does a good job summarizing the Sinclair propaganda facet of Trump's authoritarian regime.
Rump's authoritarian behavior includes subverting democracy, failure to be transparent, failure to be accountable, nepotism, cronyism, and many dimensions of financial corruption.
Trump's authoritarianism includes thwarting the will of congress, obstructing the protection of the environment, and putting property & people & planet at unprecedented risk.

Trump’s step to dismantle our democracy:
1) exec branch: leave agencies unstaffed or staff them w/regime members who will deconstruct from within
2) 4th estate: put major brands in hands of allies (Time, CNN, etc) & strike down FCC barriers for consolidation (Sinclair).

3) judicial branch-see Week 54: add new positions and rush thru appointments unfilled by Obama etc. McConnell removes barriers
4) legislative branch-threaten and bully GOP House and Senate into complicity and submission.

Trump has made dramatic progress quickly in deconstructing our democracy. The guardrails there to stop him are disappearing. I fear us putting all our eggs in the Mueller basket, cuz Trump will do something to undermine the investigation to save himself when it becomes necessary.
