Norman Solomon — WPost Won’t Retract McCarthyistic Smear

The Post doubles down. Opposition gears up.

The takeaway is twofold. First, the Clinton backers are not only in deep denial but don't accept the legitimacy of the 2016 US presidential election. They have become unhinged and are dangerous.

Secondly, the Establishment is gearing for a media war with the new president, who has a reputation for getting even and has his own media arm in the person of Steve Bannon and in Breitbart News. Donald Trump is also adept at social media and is unlikely to abandon it as a tool. 

Expect the Establishment media that doesn't fall into line to discover that they no longer have access and are shut out in the cold, having to get their news from other sources. The result will be an increase in fake news as the Establishment attempts to recapture dominance of the narrative.
