Yes, Hillary, the Media Did Help Trump Win. So Did You: New at Reason

Hillary Clinton’s complaints about the media helping Donald Trump are accurate, but not the way she thinks. David Harsanyi writes: Former Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is back doing what she does best: selling books. What Happened, her newest, doesn’t feature a question.
