This mass disappearing of millions of Americans is a genuine travesty. My colleague Melissa McEwan laments:

No voters have been so routinely and thoroughly ignored as her supporters, in service to a demeaning narrative about “low enthusiasm” for her candidacy.

Where, one wonders, is the navel-gazing about that? It is not merely that much of the corporate media went easy on Trump and his supporters; it is also that much of the corporate media went hard on Clinton and hers.

Since the corporate media refuse to give any attention to Clinton’s supporters, I’ll do it here:
