If you look at the media coverage and surfing magazines, the one thing that really stands out is how hard it is to find a photo of a girl in a magazine unless it's an ad.

It's about posting it forward. All digital leaders have mastered the art of posting-it-forward. Digital hugs" are crucial in a world with decreased face time.

Donald Trump has the benefit of the fact that he's dominated media coverage, I mean, literally dominated media coverage because of the outrageous things he says and so forth.

And it is not - I will do whatever it takes to prevent it from being taken over by a con artist.

The media companies control whether a candidate gets "coverage" - which itself is tied to the knowledge of how much he or she has raised.
