One News Outlet That Got The Election Dynamic Right? Cenk Uygur's TYT Network
In the aftermath of a stunning U.S. election--there was one local, media startup which called the dynamics of the election year right: Los Angeles-based TYT Network, and founder Cenk Uygur. Uygur's Internet TV venture--which covers politics, pop culture and lifestyle--which leans heavily Democratic, said in July that Donald Trump could win, because "he's a populist candidate when the country is angry, and you've run THE most establishment candidate we've ever seen against him". The other local outlet which got it right: The USC Dornslife/Los Angeles Times "Daybreak" Poll, which consistently showed Donald Trump in the lead.
