Skip to comments.Dan Gainor: Mueller testimony a disaster for anti-Trump media – 7 examples of media failures

In 1969, psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross wrote that there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Fifty years later, anti-Trump journalists have been experiencing the first four simultaneously since Wednesday, when former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified before two House committees.
The Trump-hating media cant come to terms with the final stage acceptance of their grief. And that will elude them even if President Trump is reelected and stays in the White House until 2025.
Journalists wrote and broadcast countless stories saying Hillary Clinton would defeat Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Many have never been able to accept Trumps victory. They were counting on Mueller to overturn the election results by giving Congress clear and convincing evidence that would lead to Trumps impeachment and removal from office.
On Wednesday, those hopes were dashed. Even though many in the media cant stand Trump, their reaction to Muellers testimony was somewhere between downbeat and outright mockery.
Rolling Stones Matt Taibbi said that the Democrats decision to put former Special Counsel Robert Mueller under oath was a catastrophe.
MSNBC analyst Jeremy Bash described Mueller as boring, sort of evasive and lost at times. Hardly a star witness to wish upon.
CNN Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer said Mueller gave a shaky performance.
And CNN Senior Justice Correspondent Evan Perez said that Mueller essentially muddied the waters a lot today.
CNNs Reliable Sources newsletter had a major meltdown, with media reporter Brian Stelter asking, Why is there not more outrage? He began the newsletter with Pinocchio images and complained that advocating for facts gets you labeled fake news.
Trump got the last laugh, posting a video Friday of several media reactions calling the hearings a disaster and generally admitting the hearings had been a failure for Democrats.

Former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, at long last, testified before Congress about his investigation into Russian interference and President Trumps conduct related to it.
Mueller appeared before the House Judiciary Committee in the morning and the House Intelligence Committee in the afternoon.
Heres what we learned from both sessions:

They embraced and agitated for FRAUD. They, and Mueller, and Nadler, and the Jihad Squad, all belong at the end of a rope. Thanks jazusamo.
Amen to that, good one.
LOL - great one Grampa...
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
