One might think the biggest loser in this election was Hillary Clinton. Indeed, Clinton took a hit. Her stage, shaped like a blue United States, perfectly situated underneath a literal glass ceiling, was used only by campaign chairman John Podesta to give a brief non-concession speech Tuesday evening.
However, the real losers in this election are the media. For years, news anchors and hosts have used their position of power to quietly manipulate viewers. Pretending–with varying success–to be unbiased bastions of political news coverage, mainstream hacks delighted in every triumph of liberal policy, and every defeat of conservative principle.
Donald Trump’s win on Tuesday, while certainly not a win for conservatives, seems to have shattered the real glass ceiling, the one under which the American people have long stood.
Few were more morose after Trump’s win than the mainstream media, whose collective sadness would make Eeyore look manic by comparison. Of the comically depressed media elite, ABC News’ Martha Raddatz truly stood out, when, upon the prospect of a Trump victory, she began to choke back tears.
