Election 2016 Response

I just read a commentary fromĀ CBS News titled “The unbearable smugness of the press.” This article details the mistakes that journalists made in 2016 during election season, mainly their assumption that democratic candidate Hillary Clinton would win by a landslide against republican Donald Trump. I think that this shows as a testament for journalists to learn from their mistakes so they do not repeat them for this election. Personally, I think that they have definitely made improvements. I see many articles that portray both outcomes as possibilities, which is definitely what the journalists should be doing.
