What if Donald Trump held a press conference . . and nobody came?

Read Nate Silver and Frank Luntz (second post below) on the centrality of media attention to Donald Trump's popularity, and then think about this letter in yesterday's AJC by MIchael Fedack:
"When Donald Trump had a [Latino] newsman ejected from his press conference . . . why didn't every reporter and cameraman follow their colleague out the door?  It's simple.  No words, no pictures, no Trump.  Imagine that."
That's the answer to political guru Frank Luntz's saying he wouldn't know how to take Trump down.   Just ignore him.   Punish him with what hurt's him the most:  no attention.
