Trump Is Right About Press Rigging Election. But… by John Hinderaker.
[T]he most important “rigging” of the election by the press happened during the Republican campaign season, when reporters and editors helped to make Trump the GOP nominee. …
[T]he liberal press built Donald Trump into the prime Republican contender, and eventual nominee. But note what the press did not do: it did not release any of the anti-Trump bombshells that seem to have clinched the election for Mrs. Clinton. NBC has had the infamous Access Hollywood tape for eleven years, but it came to light only in the last days of the campaign, when it could do the most to assure a Clinton victory.
Why didn’t NBC leak the tape to the Washington Post during the primary season? In all likelihood, the answer is that the network didn’t want to damage Trump until it was too late for Republican voters to select a stronger candidate.
