The Washington Post has an editorial out about the election which suggests some worthy introspection. Here’s the most relevant passage:
“Something of gigantic proportions happened—must have been happening for a long while—and the capital and the political wise men were taken by surprise. . . an ‘anti-Washington,’ ‘anti-establishment’ political storm warning was missed by Washington and the establishment.”
Maybe they’re starting to get it? Oh wait—sorry: once again this was the Post‘s editorial two days after Reagan’s election in 1980. It least it proves the media has learned nothing and forgotten everything. I wonder how soon we may see this editorial rerun?
