OPINION | Has the media learned its lesson?
I would have to say, no.
On the pundit front, MSNBC election night anchor Rachel Maddow encapsulated a perfect example of the kind of elitism Americans are showing to increasingly loathe when it comes to being spoken down to like peasants:
“Well, it is what it is,” Maddow said after Trump’s victory was apparent on Wednesday morning. “People go into this eyes wide open. If you vote for somebody who can’t win for president, it means that you don’t care who wins for president.”
Yup. Tell people how they should vote because your candidate didn’t win. That’ll go over well.
