I’m really starting to wonder whether the media are this purposely un-self-aware, of if they’ve gotten high on their own supply for so long that they don’t even see it anymore.
Last Tuesday, we had elections across the country, including a race for governor in Kentucky. That race led to the Democrat winning by some 0.4% and only 5,000 votes. This was actually somewhat surprising, as Matt Bevin was incredibly unpopular. The rest of the GOP ticket in the state went on to victory at every other statewide office, including a decisive win for Daniel Cameron, the state’s first Republican AG in 70 years and the first African-American one in their history.
Regardless, Bevin’s loss was always going to be what was focused on because it gave rise to the narrative that Donald Trump is in trouble. When Bevin refused to concede immediately due to the narrow margin, we quickly got articles pushed out like this.
