Of course

Federalist: "After Self-Reflection, Journalists Discover They’ve Been Too Critical Of … Democrats."

I understand: you can't fathom that you might have helped elect Trump.  Don't worry, dudes, you're not that important anymore.

Extra - Don Surber: "The whole Russian meddling was a ruse to justify spying on Trump. The mainstream media went along with the gag because they wanted to protect Obama, and they wanted to overturn the election."

PPP poll from this past July:
Trump also does a lot of losing to the media in our new poll. Voters say they trust NBC and ABC each more than him, 56/38. They say they trust CBS more than him 56/39. They say they trust the New York Times more than him 55/38. They say they trust CNN more than him 54/39. And they say they trust the Washington Post more than him 53/38.

The poll also had some public opinion results on the nothingburger nothingburger nothingburger that'll turn you vegetarian.

It's a Dem polling firm - think they oversample Democrats by at least 10%? Please.

So just slice 10% off the media's totals-- which isn't how polls work, but whatever-- and Trump still loses every matchup.

Seems like I was off by a factor of three:

Most of the top political polls that got the 2016 presidential race dead wrong are continuing to use a flawed methodology in rating President Trump's approval ratings that favors Democrats, women and younger voters, according to a new analysis.

The report shows that the mainstream polls oversample an average of 29 percent more Democrats than Republicans and the results skew anti-Trump. The result is that it robs Trump of about 8 points in his approval ratings, from 46 percent to 38 percent, it said.

...and go fuck yourself!

Fake polls! Fake news! Fake voters! Fake science! Fake outrage! Fake collusion! The only thing that's true in this fake world is Donald Trump's enduring popularity and success.

I imagine Roger growling down the sidewalk, telling the mailbox, then a stop sign, then a tree, to go fuck itself.
