The 2016 election may be the national media's come-to-Jesus moment.
The idea that the national media is "out of touch" is a criticism that will never go away. But it has a particularly potent sting this campaign cycle due to the endless and unfailingly wrong predictions, thus far, by reporters and political commentators who right from the start said Donald Trump was a racist windbag who was going nowhere.
With each declaration that Trump was done, the opposite took effect. His popularity among Republican voters went up. His rallies got bigger. He started winning primaries.
