Libs Whinging Away About Hillary’s Media Coverage January 13, 2017

Posted by geoff in News.

Hillary supporters are trying to blame the media for her loss. Peter Daou’s tweet is typical:


But if you go look at the paper from which that chart came, you’ll find this chart as well:


The average of Hillary’s negative coverage is 65.9%,while the average of Donald Trump’s is 83.4%.

I don’t think libs should be using that chart to make their case.

Peter Daou also had this tweet:

Which is stupid, because it’s plotting tweets on Twitter, not press coverage.

I agree that Clinton’s press negatives didn’t cost her the election. Given Trump supporters’ predilection to distrust/hate the lamestream media, and his genius at seeing and exploiting that, it was more the case that the greater absolute value of Trump’s negatives probably won him the election.

I think it’s more that Hillary’s email idiocy and Benghazi stupidity turned off people who aren’t driven by identity politics. And Trump offered a US-centric economic and foreign policy vision.

I have no idea why Clinton lost.

Given the facts easily found or dredged up about that vile woman — but the continued support she had — I’m just grateful for the miracle that we won’t have to listen to that angry hateful person’s voice telling us more lies and making stupid decisions that put us all at risk for the next 4+ years.

I wasn’t pro-Trump, I was ‘Never Hillary.’ Hubby had to persuade me to vote for him.

It came down to not wanting her to get her thieving hands on that furniture again, lol. Oh, and I am also certain she would be turning the IRS into a fulltime conservative persecution machine. That’s what the Clintons did the first time, kept siccing the IRS on conservatives, and Obama copied this and also added regulatory powers like the EPA and DHS to shut down their businesses.

Seriously, fuck these people. Conservatives aren’t going to be persecuting anybody, we just want to be left alone.

Silly laura, don’t you know that by not doing what they want, you’re persecuting them?

  • If you don’t learn their favorite invented pronouns and use them infallibly, you’re persecuting them.
  • If you don’t buy them their birth control, you’re persecuting them.
  • If you say “Blue Lives Matter,” you’re persecuting them.
  • If you don’t allow them into the country and give them all the rights and benefits of citizens, you’re persecuting them.
  • If you would prefer that centuries-old restroom traditions remain unchanged, you’re persecuting them.
  • If you don’t celebrate their body’s shape, no matter how unhealthy and obese, you’re persecuting them.

and the list goes on…

Right, right. And refusing to bake a cake is some form of religious pogrom.
