MSNBC, one of the United States’ (US) leading business news channel which is broadcast in many nations has in it’s morning show assailed top US media outlets responsible for misleading the electorate and telling them that there are almost 99 percentage chances that America is heading towards a Hillary Clinton presidency. Joe Scarborough of the Morning Joe show has assailed the top media outlets of the US to be responsible for misleading the US voters and for calling the New York Times in particular for having a ‘blind spot’ on Donald Trump.
The victory of Donald Trump and the red carpet to the White House has not been well taken by the other America. The other America here means that part which voted for Hillary Clinton. What is surprising is, if the prophecy would have fulfilled of Hillary winning the majority vote then how would the US media reacted? It is clear from the protests that have taken place in several US states, but would the same have taken place had US been headed to a Clinton presidency? We guess not.
Mark Halperin, managing editor, Bloomberg politics says that by not accepting Donald Trump as their president, a part of US voters are actually undermining the choice of the rest 50 percent of the US voters. You cannot say that the whole of the rest 50 percent of US voters have voted a racist and a bigot, by saying that you are actually saying that those who did not vote for Clinton are actually racist and bigot.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said that while he had lots of respect about the journalists in the New York Times (NYT) it is sad that none of them saw this coming and that they had stopped being journalists in the past months.
