Charlie Hurt: You Wonder if the Media’s Learned Anything from Last Year’s Election

‘Where not only did they do a terrible job of predicting things, in terms of the race, but they also focused on all the wrong things that nobody cared about’

RUSH EXCERPT:

HURT: “And it kind of makes you wonder whether the media has actually learned anything from lastier’s election."

HUNTSMAN: “Right. “

HURT: “Where not only did they do a terrible job of predicting things, in terms of the race, but they also focused on all the wrong things that nobody cared about. And they didn’t hear the things that people did care about. And of course, healthcare is a great example. You know, people, you know, this is something that introduce hits people in their pocketbooks. It effects their families. It effects their children, it effects their spouses. But, you hear virtually nothing about that right now. As and also you know, the issue of the collapsing ObamaCare adds a whole new twist to all of that. Making people even more anxious about it. But, yet, you turn on the TV and all you hear is the Russia stuff, the Russia stuff, the Russia stuff. And, of course, that’s great for ratings in terms of attracting the biggest trump haters that you can get.”
