The Media as the Ruling Class

The article concludes as follows:
. . . There was no doubt, certainly in the NBC News department, that Hillary was winning the election. When that didn’t happen, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, the Washington Post and others went from shock to disbelief to ridicule to, now, an all-out, completely coordinated, anger-fueled attack with the singular objective of driving Donald Trump from the White House – whatever it takes.
But even with every calculating tool at its disposal, the media can only be successful in the effort to topple Trump if Republicans in Congress cooperate. Sadly, as history shows us, they almost certainly will, because unlike Trump, most in the GOP fear the Washington press corps. They try to curry favor with the national media even as they know in their hearts that it is devoutly aligned against them and their party.
And when the media finally wins, and Trump is driven from office, and the Democrats win Congress in the midterms and the White House in 2020, Republicans will ask themselves how it happened, ignorant of their complicity in an unprecedented coup.
But Republicans won’t be the biggest losers. The biggest losers will be all Americans, not because Trump is no longer president, but because the national media has abandoned its mission to merely report on events, and instead embraced its power to determine events to achieve its own agenda and make itself the ruling class, tolerating no opposition. It’s a scenario no longer lurking dangerously in a not-too-distant future. It is happening right now.
