6. It was a disgusting display of sexism and double standards. It's important that we don't forget

what happened.

Thanks Nancy

7. They are still doing it to her on this sight

How many times have we logged in to see people saying she's a weak candidate that they did not get their dream candidate.

13. My first reaction!

The media were awful. Always the double standard, the twisting of positives to negatives and the incessant "emails" and/or "Benghazi" sans facts but always with RW TPs, slants or outright smears.

The "alt-left" was no better. Hillary not only had to fight the constant stream of BS from the front but also the "rear guard actions" on her flank. And those same "alt-lefters" continue to press on here.

Much the same happened to Al Gore in 2000. But it was never quite so vicious - nor did Gore ever have a candidate who had never before been a Democrat challenge him in the Dem primaries so that the party itself became somewhat fractured.

In 2000, Nader at least was honest enough to challenge both major party candidates from outside. Still, I have never forgiven him for enabling the 2000 outcome. Nor will I ever forgive Stein for her 2016 attacks that were always more against Hillary than ever against Trump.

10. Decades of spurios, contrived attacks. Not just against HRC.

How clever they were. Using all those alt phrases like Obamacare.

When the blinkers come off under drumph you will regret your underhanded attacks.

14. Every time I would "google"

Hillary Clinton, the slew of vituperative articles or images was mind-blowing. It was NOTHING like that for ANY other candidate,

NOTHING!

15. Unforgivable double standard, throughout the entire campaign.

The media's skewed coverage handed the presidency to trump on a silver platter. What a bunch of unprincipled, chickenshit motherfuckers.

16. I will never forgive the MSM for the way they treated HRC

All their current talk about journalistic ethics WRT Buzzfeed's release makes it all the more galling.

18. The media just had to have their "horse race" which changed everything...

The playing field was tilted in Trump's favor for months, all for the sake of goddamned ratings...
