Freakout among the talking heads
I think we should recognize the ongoing freakout among the talking heads and reporters in the mainstream media in response to the victory of Donald Trump and the defeat of Hillary Clinton. The Media Research Center’s NewsBuster compiled the video clips below documenting the election night and day-after freakout. It is full of mind-numbing vulgarity, but Chris Matthews takes the cake with this G-rated comment (at 1:00): “This is a different earth today than it was 24 hours ago.” To change up the old insult, Chris Matthews doesn’t know his leg from the earth. Or as B.B. King might put it, the thrill — the thrill up his leg — is gone.
