The authoritarianism that explains Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump [Vox Rebuttal]

In May 2016 Vox published a video describing how the allure of authoritarianism is behind the popularity of Donald Trump. The implication being that more Americans are becoming more authoritarian and so they are supporting an authoritarian candidate for President. While this point might be true, they are pretty dishonest about everything else. This new generation of “news” sites with flashy editing has picked up right were the mainstream has left off giving only half truths and selective reporting in their videos.
