The mainstream media told us for months that President Donald Trump and Republicans were in deep trouble.
Once actual voting started, however, Democrats had a much worse night than the corporate media predicted. While Trump still has an uphill climb as votes are tallied in battleground states, one thing is certain — the election wasn’t the blowout the media predicted.
Not even close.

Fox News star Tucker Carlson shot back last night at the media — and in just two short minutes, he said what everyone was thinking.
“I would say in some very specific ways, we — the media, which I’ve participated in for 30 years — have not been credible,” Carlson said when the election remained up in the air late last night. “And I think that’s really bad.”
“It’s something we need to fix, and I think the obvious problem is what we said we’d fix in 2016. Which is, ‘We don’t know anybody who votes for Trump.'” he said. “You really got the sense watching … that it was embarrassing to support Trump. That’s why the rallies were such a shock to people in the last week.”
“All of these people, unapologetically saying, ‘I love Donald Trump'” and the media didn’t — or wouldn’t — listen.
“We have a huge problem in our business with being cut-off from the country we cover,” he continued. “I would say a lot of power centers in this country have that problem. But we have it in the media, and I really sincerely hope we fix it. Because we’re moving towards zero credibility, and that’s bad.”
Trump still has a path to victory, fellow Fox News star Bret Baier pointed out, despite running against both the media and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden — though time is running out.
“I’m bitter about it, and I think it’s worth being bitter about,” Carlson said. “We found out in the final days of this campaign that the [former vice] president’s family was under an active FBI investigation that we … proved he knew about. Parts of which he approved of.”
“Not accusing him of a crime, but he was involved,” he said. “That story was utterly squealshed. It didn’t appear on any channel besides Fox News.”
“It was ignored on purpose. Not because it wasn’t news worthy — it certainly was news worthy — but because [the media] was taking a partisan position on behalf of a presidential candidate,” Carlson claimed.
“It’s not about being annoyed the media is liberal. They’ve always been liberal,” he said. “I’m not mad about that.”
“Why it’s scary is that on a night like tonight, the whole country will only know who the president is when the media tells us,” Carlson concluded.
