As described already:
The corporate media pundits were shocked when they realized that Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States. Yet, their media were promoting him during all the presidential race, "surprisingly", even more than their favorite, Hillary Clinton. The markets were going down for a moment, but then, nothing happened. It looked like a well-directed live show by the monstrous mechanisms of the establishment.
If you really want to find who was the real threat for the establishment, go back and review the whole story of the Democratic primaries. At the beginning, the media pundits were certain that Hillary would easily prevail by just walking to the finish line against Bernie Sanders. They were nearly making fun of him. But then, things got really serious. Bernie was building a mass movement outside their corrupted 'control room'.
Especially the American youth was pushing Bernie to the top, really fast, by attending massively his rallies and promoting him through social media. The internet independent media also contributed significantly on introducing Bernie Sanders to as many people as possible. You see, the system is indeed powerful, but not unbeatable. There are some things it can't control.
Then, you could witness the first signs of fear and embarrassment on pundits' voices and faces, when they were monitoring the rapid rise of Bernie against Hillary. And then, consider this: why they were constantly monitoring Bernie's and Hillary's strength against Trump's, with such an anxiety? They were doing this quite long before knowing the final result of the Democratic primaries. The answer is simple: because they wanted to see whether they should act seriously to put Bernie out of the game by all means.
When they saw with terror that Bernie was beating Trump by a far more significant percentage than Hillary, they knew that they had to get rid of him. It was much easier to do it in the primaries with the unfair and undemocratic system of superdelegates and the inside war from DNC. They wouldn't risk to see Bernie at the finals with Trump, where the whole world would watch closely. Indeed, WikiLeaks revealed that the DNC establishment had launched a dirty war against Bernie, but also that, some lobbyists wanted to get rid of him too.
