In a moment that echoes the “Dewey Defeats Truman” headline of the Chicago Daily Tribune, biased media outlets were incredibly overconfident in their belief that Hillary Clinton would defeat Donald Trump.
We’ve gone over in detail how the liberal media tried to rig this election in Hillary’s favor. They lied, distorted facts, and blatantly ignored her many criminal acts to help her win the White House. They refused to acknowledge millions of Americans’ resentment over the federal government and the growing surge of support an outside like Trump was getting.
Even their polls were biased.
So it comes as no surprise that they would make such an embarrassing mistake. It is the nail in the coffin of an outdated and dead industry, one that must be rapidly replaced by a new form of journalism, one that actually reports the facts.
From The Right Scoop:
What a blunder! Newsweek has egg all over their face after their magazine was sent to newsstands with ‘MADAM PRESIDENT’ and a big picture of Hillary on the cover:
FOX5 NEW YORK – A national recall underway for a special “Madame President” issue of Newsweek magazine that was mistakenly put on sale after Donald Trump’s win on election day.
The magazine, while branded Newsweek, was actually produced by another company called Topix Media, a New York publisher that creates special issues for several outlets, including Reader’s digest, TV Guide and CBS.
The company produced versions for both Trump and Clinton but reportedly only shipped the Clinton editions before the election. Some newsstands put out the only version they had on the publish date.
The Trump version of the magazine is now being shipped to retail outlets. The company CEO claimed that only 17 Clinton editions were sold.
Laughable. I guarantee you that no such Trump magazines were printed or made before the election and that now they are rushing to get them ready.
This is the height of the traditional media’s hubris. They are so content to stay in their ivory towers, ignoring the real world, that they didn’t realize how much momentum Trump had from day one. They ignored the American people, distorted the story, and now will have to reap the repercussions of their dishonesty.
