“so there must be more racists and sexists than we believed.”

The most powerful mea culpa from the media was from Will Rahn of CBS. He blogged on Thursday against “the unbearable smugness” of the media, including himself:

“We were all tacitly or explicitly #With Her.… Had Hillary Clinton won, there’d be a winking ‘we did it’ feeling in the press — we were brave and saved the republic.… Trump knew what he was doing when he invited his crowds to jeer and hiss reporters covering him. They hate us. And can you blame them? Journalists love mocking Trump supporters.… We diagnose them as racists in the way Dark Age clerics confused medical problems with demonic possession. Journalists at our worst, see ourselves as a priestly caste, we believe we have access to a greater truth.” Instead of humility, Rahn expects the media to be confirmed in their view that Trump and his followers are racist and sexist, “so there must be more racists and sexists than we believed.”
