Eulogy for the media

Less than a week before the election, everybody notices the media is in the tank.

Vanity Fair (via Ace): "But this election is different: for the first time in my memory, some of the major media organizations in this country have now abandoned all semblance of objectivity in furtherance of electing Hillary Clinton, or perhaps more accurately, in furtherance of the defeat of Donald Trump."

Don Surber: "The unprecedented prejudice displayed in this election is the final roar of the paper tigers who pledge fealty to the American Imelda Marcos without the shoes -- a female Kim Jong Un without his fashion sense. The WikiLeaks of Hillary henchman John Podesta's emails show reporters as panting puppies nuzzling for that coveted pay on the head from Podesta."

Observer: "This Election Has Disgraced the Entire Profession of Journalism".  "We still don’t know the outcome of the 2016 election, in which our “democratic process” has produced two candidates widely despised by the American people, but we do know the race’s biggest loser: reporters and the profession of journalism, which has been reduced to surrogacy, largely on behalf of Hillary Clinton."

Reduced to. Unprecedented. Now abandoned. For the first time. Hmm.

So all that stuff we’ve been hearing our entire lives about monolithic liberal media bias was overblown?
