What this election cycle has exposed in the failure of the fourth estate in the USA. The social contact between the people and the broadcast and print media has been shown to be in tatters.
I’m am not saying they should have supported Trump, that is not the point.
I’m saying that they have lost contact with the concerns and issues of a huge amount of the American public. Specifically, certain demographic groups.
Instead of holding the establishment to account they have joined them. Instead of championing the citizens they chosen a path to ‘educate’ them. The ‘flyover states’ are a land of mystery to American mainstream media.
In fact if that social contact had been maintained Trump would probably not have had a shot. American journalists created Trump but not just in the last year. They have spent 20 years creating the vacuum he has stepped into.
