(H/T, Cobra) The Federalist's Sean Davis points out an inconvenient truth about the media's hysterical reaction to Trump's Saturday Night massacre, and Washington Post's official fact checker explains the difference
This confession of sleeping at the wheel for 8 years is similar to the admission by NBC's Chuck Todd (he moderates "Meet the Press", although I had to look that up) that the press "knew how much the Clintons were hated in the heartland, but we didn't report it".
“Where I think political correctness got in the way of what we all knew as reporters and didn’t fully deliver was how hated the Clintons were in the heartland,” the “Meet the Press” host admitted Thursday to former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer in a interview for the “1947” podcast.
“And I think it was a fear of, ‘Oh, is it going to look like it’s sexist, anti-woman if we say that?’” he added, pointing out that on the hustings he saw numerous “Hillary for Prison” signs adorning the front yards of rural America.
“I think we underplayed it a little bit out of political correctness fears,” Mr. Todd said. “No member of the press corps wants to look like they’re singling out a group and making a group feel bad, right, whatever that [group] is.
That last sentence perfectly sums up the media and its blindness towards itself and the deplorables it seeks to govern.
