MRC's Dan Gainor on FBN: Trump Election a 'Wake Up Call For the Media'

November 9th, 2016 4:53 PM

Donald’s Trump electoral victory took Americans by surprise, but perhaps none were as stunned as the liberal news media.

MRC Vice President of Culture and Business Dan Gainor called Trump’s win a “full on repudiation of the elites in news and entertainment” who “act like nothing goes on in the rest of America.” He appeared on  Fox Business Network’s Intelligence Report Nov. 9.

“I think it should be a wakeup call for the media,” Gainor told host Trish Regan, “they’re tied into this New York, LA, DC axis, and they act like nothing goes on in the rest of America.”

“They don’t wanna cover people in their faith, they don’t wanna cover people in their jobs, they don’t wanna cover the impact of these climate regulations, how they’re devastating coal states across the country,” Gainor continued.

After Trump won the election on Nov. 8, liberals in both the news media and Hollywood had a collective meltdown. ABC’s Martha Raddatz got choked up as she bashed Trump, Andrea Mitchell claimed “history put on hold yet again,” and celebrities whined about wanting to puke over the election results.
