Hillary's Army of Goliaths

In my upcoming book, I refer to the old media as an Army of Goliaths, a reference to Glenn Reynolds's "An Army of Davids" book, which is as relevant today as it was when it came out a decade ago. Goliath protected the Philistines. The modern Goliaths of the press corps protect the Philistines of Washington, which is why the press corps -- including the conservative commentariat -- are balls out in opposition to Trump.

Johnson listened to Rove, ignored West Virginia, and Al Gore was elected president despite losing Florida by 538 votes.

PolitiFact, if you like your Pulitzer, you can keep it. Period.

Trump makes media cry, "Curses! Foiled again."

In the cartoons, Snidely Whiplash would kidnap Nell Fenwick and tie her to the railroad tracks. But Dudley Do-Right of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police would rescue her and apprehend him, at which point, Whiplash would say, "Curses! Foiled again."

For the past year, pundits have repeatedly said, "Curses! Foiled again."
