Maybe it’s Bernie Sanders’s fault that Hillary Clinton lost? That’s the latest blame game theory brought up on Monday’s CBS This Morning. Co-host Norah O’Donnell talked to Clinton’s primary opponent and wondered if he had “guilt” and “responsibility” for bringing up trust issues during the early part of the campaign.

Liberals licking their wounds after Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump are turning to their heroine Ruth Bader Ginsburg for a cheer-me-up. The opera-loving Supreme Court justice appeared at the Washington National Opera’s performance of The Daughter of the Regiment.
Mike Silverman at the Associated Press gushed “her presence added a unique luster to a performance that would have been memorable even without her.” The Washington Post gossips oozed on Monday morning: “A standing ovation for merely appearing on stage? Just another Saturday night for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”

MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor lambasted liberal media coverage of anti-Trump protests and the double standard the media use.
“It’s the one standard: Everything the left does is great, everything the right does is wrong,” Gainor said on Nov. 11, on Fox Business Network’s Intelligence Report with Trish Regan.

The long-awaited 60 Minutes interview of President-elect Donald Trump finally aired on CBS Sunday evening and featured long-time correspondent Lesley Stahl obsessing over the future of abortion under Trump by fretting about Roe v. Wade being overturned. Additionally, she attempted to press Trump on whether he’s concerned about all the people (translation: leftists) who are afraid about what will happen to them under his administration.

Former New York Times reporter David Cay Johnston has found a calling, and it's to take down Donald Trump by any means necessary, including assigning the R-word — racist — to the President-elect's desired policies. In his most recent attack during an MSNBC interview, Johnston effectively smeared every American who wants to see Obamacare repealed as either a racist or someone providing aid and comfort to racists and white supremacists.

Appearing on the 9 a.m. ET hour of NBC’s Today on Monday, left-wing actor Donald Sutherland recalled being scolded by actress Helen Mirren on the set of one of his films: “Helen Mirren came up to me on the set and....she said, ‘You are the most privileged person on Earth’....I said, ‘How can you say that?’ And she said, ‘You are a white male.’”

It is a matter of record that establishment national media lost big on Election Day, having been stunned by the election of Donald J. Trump to the presidency of the United States. But the network that had the most at stake and lost the most in this election seems to have also learned the least.

Thursday night’s Notorious, ABC's navel-gazing news media drama, called out Brian Williams in an episode that revolved around the lead character Julia George's (Piper Perabo) disgraced former mentor, Dana Hartman. The former anchor was canned after it came out that she had fabricated an interview for her show. The fake interview led to the assassination of its real-world subject and Julia turned her in to the LA Times and the fallout ended Hartman's news career.

Considering that it's coming from the New York Times, reporter Sabrina Tavernise's account of what happened in Ohio to swing it from a close Obama win in 2012 to a near-blowout for Donald Trump in 2016 was reasonably well-done, but still had glaring flaws. Her story's human interest elements were strong, but the accompanying statistics provided were sparse, and really needed to be there to tell the full tale. Tavernise's biggest failures were first, not describing how historically large Trump's Buckeye State victory margin was, and second, neglecting to attribute a large portion of that margin to sharply lower overall turnout among Democrats. Those two elements enabled her to avoid entertaining the possibility that Ohio — but to be clear, not necessarily the rest of the nation, or even the Midwest — may have just experienced a potentially seismic electoral realignment.

It's been one helluva week for MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, along with so many of her smug cohorts in the formerly safe ideological space known as the United States, since Donald Trump winning the election confirmed their long-held suspicion that they do in fact live in Amerikkka.

Remember those concerned New York Times stories about the dictatorial dangers of refusing to accept election results? Apparently they only applied to Donald Trump. In Sunday’s edition, New York Times reporters hypocritically hailed anti-Trump demonstrators in “Protesters Take Anti-Trump Message to His Doorstep, and Plan Next Steps."

The Washington Post wrote off Donald Trump this way. The headline from the Post’s Chris Cillizza was as follows on June 17, 2015, a total of two days after Trump rode into the GOP presidential race on a Trump Tower escalator: "Why no one should take Donald Trump seriously, in one very simple chart."

Following Donald Trump becoming the president-elect in a stunning upset, CNN’s Brian Stelter was desperate to find a reason for Hillary Clinton’s loss on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources.” He went so far as to wonder if the media was being too balanced during the election. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway seemingly fed up with Stelter’s antics chided, “I guess what maybe you need to realize is that for a lot of people who don't share your political opinions that's what it [felt] like…the last eight years.”
