Well, that was prescient. What sparked it? This:
Trump, in Ohio: "I would like to promise and pledge ….that I will totally accept the results of this presidential election – if I win"

Journos immediately clutched their pearls and frantically began tweeting about it:

Watched Trump's "if I win" thing. He's just telling a bad joke. He is happy to get a reaction. It's stupid and he's done.

Pitiful media embarrasses itself once again. Look, even if you are someone who would rather have Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump, you have to admit the constant and breathless pearl-clutching over nonsense by alleged journos is outrageous. The GOP is supposed to fight media bias. Not embrace it.
