Maher: The Media Bemoans How Silly the Election Has Gotten… But It’s Their Fault!

maher3Bill Maher went on a rant against the media tonight over its insane coverage of the 2016 election and its seeming lack of self-awareness on the matter.

Maher showed a clip of Chuck Todd today bemoaning how the election got to such a low point. Maher sarcastically cried, “How?! Who’s talking about this? I don’t know how this happened!”

He said there is a “complete lack of self-awareness on the part of the press that they are the problem,” calling for going back to when the news business wasn’t interested in the bottom dollar.

Maher bemoaned how the media is a “lost leader” that people can’t trust anymore because of how silly they’ve let the election become.
