This is the ultimate in delusion
I was on that other site that I will not name. Someone posted Michiko Kakutani's review of "Shattered," the book about the implosion of you know who's campaign.
This was the response about the post. Warning: this ostrich is still in the sand. This delusional is known as "still_one" (more like still_brainless):
1. What a bullshit hit piece. The media had it in for Hillary from the start, and the NY Times was
right there leading the pack
Nice of them to briefly mention the contribution of Comey, and the Russian interference.
This sure isn't a sympathetic book.
The primaries were essentially over after New York, but the media went on with the horse race
They push the line, "she never reached out to the rust belt", but hardly mention their complicity in propagating "a lie told often enough becomes the truth"
Hillary was leading in all the polls before Comey came out 11 days with the letter to the republicans in Congress, and the good ole "liberal station" MSNBC was the first network to report that the email investigation was reopened. THAT WAS A LIE. MSNBC then proceed to parade every right wing politician across their screen for the next two hours propagating that LIE. Soon every other news network followed suit with the same f**kin LIE. A few days later Bret Baier broadcast that according to "his sources in the FBI, an imminent indictment was pending on the Clinton Foundation. Another LIE, but the other news outlets picked that up quickly too. a few days later Baier came out and apologized saying that there was no pending indictment, and apologized. He was mistaken. Just peachy. The damage was pretty much done then, and the poll numbers reflected it. Hillary completely lost the lead she had.
Even with all that, she might have made it, if the self-identified progressives who refused to vote for Hillary, voted for her.
In Michigan Hillary lost by .3%. Jill Stein received 1.1% of the vote. Similar results in Wisconsin and all the other swing states, and it would have made a difference.
but the damage didn't stop there. Every Democrat running for Senate in those critical swing states lost to the incumbent, ESTABLISHMENT, republican
Interestingly, Bernie's endorsements didn't work out too well either:
Russ Feingold lost to Ron Johnson in rust belt Wisconsin. Russ Championed Bernie's platform, opposing trade deals, opposing special interests, promoting a federal minimum wage of 15 dollars, and advocating for debt-free college.
In Colorado, Amendment 69, a measure that would have created a universal healthcare system in Colorado, 80% voted no, and only 21% of Colorado voters supported it
Zephyr Teachout in the 19th district in New York was aligned on almost every issue Bernie brought up. opposed free trade, lobbyists, and campaign finance reform was a central theme of her campaign, yet she lost by 10% in her district.
In California Bernie came out to campaign for Proposition 61, that would mandate that state agencies pay no more for prescription drugs than the US Department of Veterans Affairs pay. It lost by 8%.
In Vermont Bernie endorsed Sue Minter for Governor against the republican. Unfortunately she lost by 8%.
Ted Strickland lost in Ohio by over 20%.
Sorry but everything wasn't so f**king "easy" how these "pieces came together", as the article says.
What is easy to understand is what happened.
The false equivalencies, and the legitimizing of racism, sexism, and xenophobia by the media spoke volumes.
When Chuck Todd said "It's Not the Media's Job To Correct GOP's Falsehoods", or CNN entertaining the question, "are Jews human?", the fourth estate is no longer about accuracy, it is about ratings.
This person needs medication. What do you think?
