CNN’s John King on Hillary Blaming the Media: It’s Not Our Fault Trump Won Pennsylvania

CNN’s John King today said that Hillary Clinton has “something in common with Donald Trump“: media-bashing.

As the former Democratic presidential candidate has been promoting her new book, she’s making it clear she isn’t happy with how the press covered the 2016 race. Just yesterday, she said, “I don’t think the press did their job in this election, with very few exceptions.”

King played the clip and said there may be “some truth to some of that,” but went on to add this:

“The other guy did win Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan by saying ‘I’m gonna renegotiate trade deals, I’m gonna get those factories re-opened up, I’m gonna get your jobs.’ Now, we’ll see if the President of the United States delivers on those promises, but when you flip big blue states to red states by having what voters found to be a more compelling economic message, I don’t think that’s our fault.”
