The mainstream media is just weird.

After telling America that Hillary Clinton’s election was more than 90 percent certain, journalists pivoted sharply when hit with reality. Christiane Amanpour rallied her fellow reporters to “commit to real reporting” now more than ever. Newspapers adopted apocalyptic taglines like “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” The New York Times ran an ad campaign called, “The Truth,” while CNN recently unveiled its own “apple vs. banana” #FactsFirst campaign.

So what do we get one full year after the 2016 election?

It’s a jolly trip down memory lane in an alternative universe where Hillary Clinton won the election. Is this normal?

Yes, why … didn’t Hillary herself say it was a threat to democracy not to respect the results of the election?
