Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, said the U.S. media was so biased during this presidential election that it reminded him of the government-controlled coverage of an election in Marxist Nicaragua in 1990.
“All the pundits are declaring today that this victory for Donald Trump is historic in nature,” said Bozell in a statement. “That is true — in America. But I’ve seen it before.”
Bozell said that on the eve of the Nicaraguan elections in 1990, he participated in a press conference with three others who had been active during that campaign.
The people Bozell was with brought up polls that had the Sandinistas, the Marxist ruling party whose rule often provoked civil war, winning by over 20 points.
Bozell predicted democratic opposition leader Violeta Chamorro’s victory, which was large
“I stated the media polling, authorized by the communist government, was going to be flat wrong,” said Bozell. “The Nicaraguan people were telling the media what the media wanted to hear — then went to the voting booths and voted for freedom instead. This is why the pundits got it all wrong. They believed the media and their spin, not just on the coronation of Hillary Clinton — but more important, on America’s repudiation of Donald Trump. They saw Trump’s voters just as the Clinton campaign saw them: a basket of deplorables. All season long, the pro-Hillary press treated Trump’s followers with utter contempt. At the same time, the left-wing media were giving aid and comfort to Hillary Clinton, covering up her scandals when they could, spinning them in her favor when they couldn’t.”
Bozell said his media watchdog group has documented the bias all election season.
