For sure the media is misleading the public. Just ask Ford's Jewish mother-in-law about how misleading and opportunistic the media is.
Ford has confidence, sound-bites and a remarkable ability to push people's buttons. That's great for getting headlines, but when you scratch the surface, there's nothing there.
Populism isn't leadership; at it's best it's pandering, at its worst its blatant bigotry.
Messaging isn't enough - people deserve substance.
