"ABC's Martha Raddatz choked back tears as she discussed the Trump presidency."...
11/9/16, "Trump beats the media and the establishment in pulling off the greatest upset ever," Howard Kurtz, Fox News
"Donald Trump, the real estate mogul mocked and minimized by the media
and political establishment, has stunned the world with a death-defying
campaign that has captured the presidency....
The man who had never
run for public office, who had supposedly alienated so many women and
minorities that he had no serious chance, somehow captured the highest
office in the land.
It was not until 2:30 am that first the AP, then the
Washington Post and Wall Street Journal, then Fox News, declared Trump
to be the 45th president.
There was a sense of disbelief, even shock, among
journalists on and off the air as states like Ohio, North Carolina and
Florida fell into the Trump column and Clinton failed to put away the
big blue Midwestern states. Once Trump was within 54 electoral votes of
winning the White House, the entire conversation changed:
How did Trump do this? How could Clinton have blown this?
How could we have missed this? How would this guy govern?
Some media figures lashed out on Twitter. ABC's Martha Raddatz choked back tears as she discussed the Trump presidency."...
