Thursday’s New York Times was in panicky mode over President-elect Donald Trump, especially from an immigrant and minority perspective, with the paranoia on fully display in “Trump Win Has Blacks, Hispanics and Muslims Bracing For a Long 4 Years." This purported “news” story even recycled leftist Van Jones cries of “Whitelash” -- as if an African-American president didn’t actually win a second term in office a mere four years ago.

On Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer grilled New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on the upcoming meeting between President Obama and President-Elect Donald Trump, fretting over the “long and bitter history” between the two men.

The Hollywood freak out over Donald Trump’s victory continued on Wednesday. West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin wrote an open letter to his daughters in which he snarled, “The Klan won last night. White nationalists. Sexists, racists and buffoons.” The missive was published in Vanity Fair and includes unrestrained venom such as this: “Hate was given hope. Abject dumbness was glamorized as being ‘the fresh voice of an outsider’ who’s going to ‘shake things up.’”

National Public Radio was still in Obama Mode after the election on Wednesday morning,  bringing on black author Attica Locke (who also writes for the Fox drama Empire) who rudely implied each and every Trump support is a racist. NPR anchor David Greene politely suggested not every one, but Locke refysed to admit there was a single non-racist: “I’m out with that.”

South Park creators Trey Stone and Matt Parker are known for their quick turnaround of new episodes, but airing a new episode on Wednesday night, less than 24 hours after the election results came in, was particularly impressive.

In “Hero Complex,” Wednesday night’s episode of CBS’s Code Black, two doctors practicing at Angel’s Memorial Hospital clash over California’s End of Life Option Act – state-sanctioned assisted suicide.

Though they may not have known it, Blackish just tackled one of the biggest issues surrounding the election: the blue-collar worker. Of course, I believe it was probably all a coincidence, but it actually is funny how it worked out - and I don’t say that often about ABC shows.

ABC seems to have a fascination with sexualizing kids lately. In Wednesday night’s episode “D-a-t-e-Date?” on ABC’s Speechless, Ray (Mason Cook) organizes a boys’ night after a girl breaks his heart. When his mother (Minnie Driver) embarrasses him, the only way he can get back in with the guys is to show a fake picture of his nipple, pretending it is his girlfriend’s.

NBC apparently assumed the role of sore loser Wednesday on NBC Nightly News, as they pulled out all the stops in an attempt to smear President-Elect Donald Trump. First, they stoked the liberal anxiety that Trump would join the ranks of the world’s most deplorable despots, before moving on to assert that the America that elected Trump was not welcoming to minorities. “While Donald Trump's many supporters are basking in his victory, many others woke up this morning feeling disillusioned by the headlines,” sulked anchor Lester Holt.

During the first half of their extended post-election coverage Wednesday evening, NBC Nightly News seemed to be setting the ground work for four years of a President Donald Trump all while stoking the left’s anxieties. “There were gasps around the world. Headlines, ‘Trumpocalypse’ and ‘Disunited States’” hyped NBC’s Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel as he delved into the ridiculous, “But there are deeper concerns tonight that the world's shining light of democracy has gone dark.”

As liberals began to pick up the pieces on Wednesday after Donald Trump was elected the next president of the United States, MSNBC host Chris Matthews provided a succinct embodiment of a liberal’s range of emotions over the course of a special two-hour Hardball from fear to downright strange behavior.

We noticed the unintentional joke when The New York Times arrived today at headquarters. Lachlan Markay at the Washington Free Beacon noticed, too. The Times came wrapped in a suggestive ad with the large boast in all capitals: “HER REIGN BEGINS.”

Except it never will. The boast was a large Netflix ad for the series The Crown. Owen Thomas at SFGate.com had the scoop:

Donald Trump is going to be elected the next president of the United States. And you know what? I...am...going...to...be...okay. I'M GOING TO BE OKAY!!! But I don't know if you are. AGGGHHH!!!! AGGGHHH!!!  AGGGHHH!!!! AGGGHHH!!! ...I'm going to be okay, DAMMIT!!!

That's a brief encapsulation capturing the general tone of celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton's mental meltdown last night when it became obvious to him that Donald Trump would be elected president.

On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, as Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson appeared as a guest to discuss the aftermath of Donald Trump's election to the presidency, co-host Chris Cuomo repeatedly pressed his GOP guest on what the new President would do to make it up to those who did not support him who might feel like they were victims of "division and anger" during his campaign.

After Senator Johnson eventually chided Cuomo for "starting out pretty negative today," the CNN host bristled as he lectured back at his GOP guest: "I couldn't agree with you more about keeping the positive, but for you to put it on the media for just repeating what Donald Trump said -- and you ducked for your entire campaign -- is a little hard to swallow."

During the New York Times rather sedate and solemn (wonder why?) live election night coverage, reporter Maggie Haberman whined that “the amount of open misogyny during this campaign has been really striking, from a lot of Trump’s supporters.” Sarah Lyall’s front-page story in Wednesday’s edition (before most of the results were in) also took a feminist angle: “Many Women Feel Echoes of History in Vote for Clinton.” Its laudatory lines about Hillary Clinton’s imminent triumph were overtaken by events: “Women across the country felt history tapping them on their shoulder, propelling them out the door, following them into voting booths.” And two Times media and TV writers got together to talk Trump lies and his deplorable supporters.
