Will we have to hear about the "alt-right" community for four years?
Or eight?
Or more?
Do they have more influence because Donald Trump won, or does the media publicity give them more recognition than they deserve?
Why would The Los Angeles Times give the GQ treatment to a guy who “heils” victory and quotes Nazi propaganda onstage in German, as Richard Spencer did this weekend? I suppose it’s the same reason every major publication gave David Duke, who was polling at 3-4 percent in his Louisiana Senate race all year, their undivided attention. (What am I talking about? We’re still hearing about Duke on a daily basis.) It’s to create the impression that they matter.
Time for a reality check for the media.
