Yes…the real culprit of election manipulation is note other than our own media….as proven by the following.
The New York Times have done the really strange in writing a letter to its subscribers, essentially saying “sorry” for not realizing how popular Donald Trump really is. The publisher, Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., is essentially begging for subscribers’ continued support.
The letter says…“We cannot deliver the independent, original journalism for which we are known without the loyalty of our subscribers”.

M. Goodwin of the NY post has written…
Had the paper actually been fair to both candidates, it wouldn’t need to rededicate itself to honest reporting. And it wouldn’t have been totally blindsided by Trump’s victory.
Instead, because it demonized Trump from start to finish, it failed to realize he was onto something. And because the paper decided that Trump’s supporters were a rabble of racist rednecks and homophobes, it didn’t have a clue about what was happening in the lives of the Americans who elected the new president.
For his part, the President-Elect weighed in as well:
Wow, the @nytimes is losing thousands of subscribers because of their very poor and highly inaccurate coverage of the “Trump phenomena”

It finally happened; the people of this nation are onto the tactics of the media in this country, and their attempts to create the news, and influence outcomes, rather than merely reporting fairly and objectively.
Nice letter Arthur Sulzberger. Unfortunately, no one believes a word you say any more. A newspaper should NEVER have to “rededicate” it’s reporters to offer more honest journalism! Either your reporters are honest or they’re not. Yours clearly are not.
