    In western Paraguay fields that were once thick rain forests are now soybean plantations. The rows of soybeans stretch far into the distance, swaying hypnotically back and forth in the wind. This ocean of soy, though, is dotted with small islands--houses, actually, that belong to the subsistence campensinos who once eked out a living farming an array of crops like sugar, cotton, wheat, and maize. Now there is only one industrial harvest: soy.

    Who’s to blame for the fact that November is just around the corner and Donald Trump is within shouting distance of electoral victory? The media, of course.
