Support for Trump was, in large part, a rebellion against the smug liberal ignorance that Stewart embodies, by John Hinderaker. There is an excellent letter to the New York Times, who just sent a letter to their subscribers proclaiming how fair and balanced they were in their election coverage.

Dear Mr. Sulzberger and Mr. Baquet,

You are either joking, lying or badly deluded. The coverage of the NYT has only become more biased (and may I say more predictable) in recent years. It may be fairer to call most of what I read advocacy. …

A good first step would be to bring some real intellectual diversity to your newsroom and op-ed page. Get some people who’ve actually been to Wisconsin outside of Madison (if you had, you’d have not been shocked when Trump carried the state as you’d have seen signs in quantities never seen in previous elections). Get some people who can handle a firearm without getting physically ill. Find someone who is pro-life and can cover the March for Life in January fairly (btw you’ll find the crowd is both much larger and much law abiding than the BLM mobs you’ve spilt so much fawning ink upon).

Read it all.
