In a very ironic ‘why we have Trump’ moment, the New York Times published an editorial explaining why the sexism displayed by the men of the media cost Hillary Clinton the election. It was centered around now fired NBC anchor Matt Lauer and the sexual harassment allegations against him.
Opinion: The Lauer accusations put the media sexism that contributed to Hillary Clinton’s loss in sharper focus https://t.co/qIXWxFakw9

Stories like this just continually further a dishonest narrative that ABC is responsible for the Dems’ big loss last year. No, not ABC the network — Anyone But Clinton.

She had practically the entire media on her side. They gave her a pass on almost everything. Bring a better candidate next time if you want to win. https://t.co/OMxDbOaA4i

She lost because she ran as if she was the rightful heir to the presidency. She lost because the focus was on her #ImWithHer the focus is and should always be on the American people. Flawed candidate. https://t.co/MJLmK7bvVh

To review: Matt Lauer is responsible for Hillary hardly visiting Michigan and Pennsylvania. Matt Lauer is responsible for Hillary being barely visible for much of the campaign. Matt Lauer is responsible for Hillary Clinton being one of the worst overall presidential candidates of all time. Got it!
