Accuracy in Media

The Evening Standard claimed that Clinton didn’t give the concession speech, after the race was called after 1:30 AM Eastern time, because she was so upset and couldn’t bear to give it. The wording of the article itself lends itself to this narrative of a fragile, upset woman:

And when the moment came early today to admit that her lifelong dream of becoming America’s first woman president had been dashed, she simply couldn’t face the world.

The devastated Democratic candidate remained locked in her New York hotel room as it became clear that her glass ceiling had come crashing down around her.
