People should think twice when using what I call Facebook epidemic as their source of information.

The press said Clinton had a +90% chance of winning. Turns out that was fake news. Unlike Facebook which generates more page views w/ fake news, the press helped depress voter turnout with theirs.

You still leave the most important question unanswered, because you know any response will expose the origins of your hateful politics.
The question which you consistently evade remains: What is so honorable about being in the same camp as KKK, David Duke, Alt-Right, American Nazi party and all those assorted racist thug a holes?
You can't refute the numbers I have provided you, so it is YOU who engages in generalities. Do you have any specific numbers that would validate your baseless claim? Other than some generalities about a non existent 'half the country'? No, you don't.
No one needs your advise about where to leave, but you need to educate yourself on American literature and culture and comprehend why Samuel Johnson considers patriotism to be the last refuge of a scoundrel.
Do you understand what Samuel Johnson is talking about? Most probably not.

You generalize so much that I assumed you would round up your numbers. You should consider moving to the US if you want to experience heartfelt patriotism. Unlike Canada we have a proud tradition of it!

Your math is as inadequate as your 'logic'.
Only between 50 to 55% of eligible voters participate in presidential elections, which brings the total number of voters to about 120,000,000 out of a total population of 320,000,000. Even if half vote for your Orange Hitler, the number comes to around 50 to 60 millions which is barley a fifth.
Are the core supporters of Trump unreconstructed racist thugs? YES.
The question you need to ask yourself but never do is the following: What is so patriotic or decent with being in the same rank as KKK, David Duke, Alt-Right and all those other degenerate a holes?
I live in Canada, no need to move.
And don't forget what Samuel Johnson said about patriotism:
"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

Are you implying that half the country is racist? Will you move to Canada when Trump wins or will you be a true American patriot and support your President?

Yes, majority of Trump's core supporters are unreconstructed racist thugs like KKK, David Duke, Alt-Right,....
Trump has built up an extensive track record of getting sued by DOJ for discrimination against Blacks.
Trump's entire campaign is a campaign of racists, by racist for racists.

Majority!? Wrong. Back those words with statistics. Go on and start Googling.
By your flawed logic you mind as well argue that the majority of Obama supporters are black thugs and Hillary supporters are angry feminists who hate men. Neither is true of course but you prefer to generalize and make shit up.

Time to wake up and smell the coffee, majority of Trump's core supporters are unrepentant. unreconstructed racists, the same type that burned a Black church is Mississippi last night and wrote "Vote Trump" on the walls.
This type of degenerate, racist politics is what keeps the TV ratings high.

Is that why KKK endorsed Trump, or because Trump is the biggest racist candidate US has ever seen?

They should all thank Donald Trump for these ratings! Our soon to be POTUS is the biggest reality star that television has ever seen.

Earlier this year CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker told the Wall Street Journal, “I think it was a legitimate criticism of CNN that it was a little too liberal. We have added many more middle-of-the-road conservative voices to an already strong stable of liberal voices. [...] I think that we are a much more-balanced network and, as a result, a much more inviting network to a segment of the audience that might not have otherwise been willing to come here.”

A 'much more-balanced network', eh? More on that in a second. CNN clearly wants to grow its audience and to do so, it seeks to peel off conservative viewers from Fox News and others. A 2014 Pew Research Center study found that conservatives are “somewhat underrepresented” in the CNN audience profile. A niche network can be very lucrative (ie a hyper liberal or conservative media outlet), but there's a huge opportunity in the middle, between the two extremes -- a position that CNN sees as a lucrative opportunity for improving its viewership numbers.

I have long considered CNN one of the more balanced major news networks, but their reporting during this election has really shifted (and hurt) how I view their brand. As an Independent voter I have found CNN's reporting to be far from 'fair and balanced'.

I can appreciate the many challenges of covering a candidate like Trump, and have no qualms with the tough and negative coverage he has received (after all, he brings much of this on himself), but as an avid CNN viewer, I've been taken aback by the friendly and biased coverage of Hillary Clinton.

CNN has all but announced their preferred candidate through their coverage, a decision that is most certainly dictated from top down by their owners and carried out by their journalists -- as @iraj said, it's a business after all and the owners are free to move the network in whatever direction they see fit to serve their financial (and political) interests. That's all fine and dandy, but the insistence that CNN is 'an American symbol of independent journalism' (words of new CNN owner, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson) or that it's a 'fair and balanced network' is patently false reporting.

The following sums up what many were saying during the primaries:

Brazile and those like her do what they do best: scheme to help get, and keep, their friends in power, and then go on TV and pretend to be on the level, offering their expert “analysis” on the same people.

The media is biased against 'not making money', as far as the owners are concerned opinions and journalists are dime a dozen.
