frequently listen to bbc radio just to get an idea what's going on in the rest of the world. it's just amazing. there's like wow, this happened in zimbabwe and something is happening in egypt and what's going on in indonesia and scotland. we have so little interest in the rest of the world. abby: i think about this a lot. i do think you're right. but the question was why is the media so obsessed with trump. the answer is because people are obsessed with trump as we all know. you go places and that's literally all anybody wants to talk about. i've been outside the country many times over the last two years. that is all anybody wants to talk about. mona: it is self-reinforcing. wouldn't you agree? abby: it is self-reinforcing. i do think that one of the challenges that i believe that the media faces, not make it all about the media, we often want to give our audience what they are seeking. if people want to watch trump news, we want to give them trump news. it is kind of like this cycle that we're all in. i don't know that the answer is necessarily we just cover trump specifically less.
