Official narrative

Wikipedia's list of "scandals" is organised by branch of government, as if to reinforce the illusion that separation of powers is a functional concept.

Public awareness

In 2014, 75% Americans perceived corruption in the US government as "widespread", up 66% in 2009.[1] A 2017 poll revealed that the "Terrorism" had dropped from being the #2 fear of US citizens in 2016 to #22! By contrast, their biggest fear was "corrupt government officials", which rose from 60% in 2016 to 75% in 2017.[2]

Dictatorship

A 2014 paper in Perspectives on Politics entitled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens concluded that the US was a de facto dictatorship - i.e. that the will of the people had no statistically significant impact on which legislation was enacted.[3] This evidence of corruption was not followed up on by the commercially-controlled media and as of December 2017, it was still the only paper on this topic.[4]
