Legal Insurrection gave an example why.
It posted a transcript from "Morning Joe" on MSNBC:
JOE SCARBOROUGH: There was somebody that held an extraordinarily important position in American media, in print media, who brought their people together after Hillary Clinton lost and literally said, “we did the best we could do. We tried and we failed. But we did the best we could do.”
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: And there were people crying.
JOE: And there were people crying in this newsroom. I’m not going to say which newsroom it is, and it was a very big newsroom. And said we did the best —
MIKE BARNICLE: You’re down to three papers!
JOE: You’re damn straight I am. And that’s the problem.
MIKA: I think it’s okay if you’re doing your job, but we’re not robots.
JOE: Willie and I, though, were talking about this with three weeks left in the campaign. It was almost like they were playing to history saying, we are the resistance and we want to tell our grandkids that we stood in the way of Donald Trump. Instead of reporting about Donald Trump.
MIKA: There is that.
WILLIE GEIST: Well I also think a lot of reporters thought that was a safe position at that point. Because they thought Hillary Clinton was going to win, they’d be on the right side of history, the way they looked at it.So you have a journalist stating that journalists at the New York Times, Washington Post, or Wall Street Journal cried when Hillary lost.
And you have someone defending this.
If I owned that newspaper, none of those crybabies would be working for me.
There is no crying in journalism.
If you cry over politics, then you not only are a partisan who has no business being in a newsroom as a reporter or copy editor, but you are mentally ill.
Go see a shrink. Take some pills.
I am serious. No politician is worth your tears, unless you are a relative or paid staffer.
Mom dies, cry.
A politician loses, meh.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment."
