"Upset!", "Stunning!" - TRANSLATION: The media got their predictions completely wrong

The arrogance in the media is unchanged, and is on full display the morning after Trump's election.

One of their (self-assigned) jobs is to find out in advance how people will vote and report it.

They blew it, huuuuge.

Naturally, they are trying desperately to blame it on Trump (he's duplicitous, he's unpredictable), Republicans (voters lied to us), and all the usual suspects. Everyone except themselves.

Could it be that Republicans didn't trust the media to accurately report what they said... and with good reason? So they just blew off most of the robocalls they got from the media?

Could it be the Republicans didn't feel like getting lied about, demonized, insulted by liberals, and everything else the leftists have been doing for months, and so told them what they wanted to hear ("I'm undecided") just to get rid of them?

Could it be that some Democrats had had enough of their party's lying, failures, and snarling rage?

If the media had acted like genuine reporters, instead of Hillary shills, for the last ten years, they would have gotten more accurate results.

As it is, the media (and other leftist extremists) have poisoned the well a little too much. Then when they went to that well (normal Americans) they got sick, sick, sick. Sicker than they already were.

The good news? Finally we have the first (hopefully of many) President who is immune to their poison and abuse.

It will be an interesting four years.

Some of the media's arrogance was on display last night, too.

They were discussing whether Trump should give a victory speech after Hillary chickened out.

More than one of the mediaites on every channel, said something like, "But but but Trump isn't officially the victor yet! Nobody in the media has declared him to be!"

CNN anchor stated that "OUR" candidate needs "these states to win", referring to Clinton.

Remember, it is only a stunning victory because they told us it wouldn't be. They set the parameters so they should be saying, sorry instead of trying to make it something it was not. The people spoke.

Think about it, what demographic was Hillary going to hold or improve on over what Obama did? white men, no way. White women? They hated her. Blacks in general? No way Obama had them all she could only lose them. Hispanics, same. So there was not way she could win, and she didn't.

Exactly.

The only people who were "stunned", or even surprised, were the mainstream media. And the people who made the mistake of believing them.
