Media Seeks Absolution Through Russian Hysteria

On Thursday, CNN’s Brian Stelter released a lengthy story based on interviews with dozens of journalists who covered the 2016 presidential race. The consensus from the oral history was: They were all shocked when Republican Donald J. Trump became president-elect sometime around 2:40 a.m. on Nov. 9. All of them. Every single person Stelter spoke to. Reporters. Pundits. Even a few conservative commentators. The story is yet more evidence the media is putting on a show of introspection to cover their rear, because the mainstream media should have done a better job of covering the presidential horse race.
