One of the biggest disappointments of this election season has to be the final unraveling of the mainstream media. As the days pass and the smoke clears a bit after the shocking events, it is hard to grapple with the magnitude of their collapse.
It’s true that their demise has been many years in the making, but what we just witnessed was stunning.
Some in the press have shown a bit of introspection, after reality set in that their political campaign (more on that later) was over and they had lost. But sadly, the soul-searching itself is part of the script. The “we live in a liberal bubble” explanation worked for a while, but it is wholly inadequate to explain 2016.
I hesitate to say it, but for practical purposes, the mainstream media are dead.
They're dead because they cannot be trusted. In 2016, we’ve discovered, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the mainstream media collude with the Democratic Party to advance the careers of liberal politicians. We now know that they colluded to elect Hillary Clinton.
This is more than merely siding with liberal policies or demanding in your official manual that pro-lifers be called “anti-abortion.” That’s plain old liberal bias, and we’re all accustomed to dealing with it. However, this goes well beyond that.
