Meet the Press tried to be optimistic, Face the Nation decidedly pessimistic because of Donald Trump.
To Face the Nation, everything that has led to Donald Trump's victory favors Democrats for the next election. ???
Not a word, though, from Meet the Press about their constant praise for Hillary Clinton, her life, her history and/or her "high qualifications" to be the next president. Not a word about her scandals, past and/or present.
According to both Meet the Press and Face the Nation, listeners, in general, were unfair to the media, who were only "trying to do their job'" (ostensibly journalism).
MSM's failure to cover certain aspects of Hillary Clinton's life and/or campaign so frustrated viewers, listeners and readers so much that it gave rise to so-called Fake News.
Fake News is called fake news because it was not propagated by Main Stream Media, therefore must not be real...false logic if there ever was any.
Now, the so-called Fake News, did (and does) extend itself into many nefarious areas. There were plenty of "conspiracy" theories, exaggerations, made up stuff and just plain lies rampant in Fake News. But there was also a LOT of factual material that was just totally ignored by MSM. They didn't want to hear it and they refused to report it.
The American press still doesn't get who Americans are. They think they are the celebrities, the rich and powerful, and most significantly, the press itself. Most Americans are not any of those things, and do not strive to be.
Both Meet the Press and Face the Nation made fools of themselves, Sunday. They don't know it, and they are bound to repeat it.
