Tally ho.

Within hours of the election of Donald Trump the mainstream media, their politico counterparts and social media operatives began spreading the narrative that the President was only elected as a result of the dissemination of fake news.

Too bad they don't realize Trump was elected DESPITE the dissemination of fake news.
The old guard media are dying and don't realize it. They sold out for Obummer and lied to people for 8 years. Their mistake was to lie for so long about the economy. You cannot lie to people about that which they can, and do, observe first hand on a daily basis. Once people started realizing that if they lie about what I can see and know the question arises, 'What else, that I can't observe first hand, are they lying to me about?'.

Unless facts come back into vouge in 'the media' they are doomed to die. Well, at least until the 'Affordable News Act' is passed and one is forced to by rags like the NYT or pay a fine tax.

Agreed! This manufactured outrage is so obviously contrived. Anyone who goes along with it is instantly branded as a sell out whose word is not to be trusted. Trust is hard, if not impossible, to regain after a betrayal.

I used to be an avid reader of and subscriber to the WSJ. Now I can't be bothered to read it and when Daniel Henninger, Bret Stephens, and the others appear on Fox I dismiss them out of hand.

Independent Sharyl Atkisson? Diana West? Ann Coulter? Uncle Remus. You bet! Must read.

It's been correctly observed that voters just didn't care about any mistakes that Trump made. They were voting against the lies and the betrayals.
