Outlets have been reporting for some time that Democrats were in trouble of losing the Senate. New polling shows, however, that the Democrats have made significant gains in Senate polling and they are much more likely to hold onto the Senate than was originally forecast. It would seem that media outlets are engaging in a pro-Right campaign to try and break those gains though.
Crooks and Liars has gathered a list of the efforts that Media is engaging in to make it seems like Democrats are in more trouble than they are.
CNN:NRA Focuses on Three Senate Races – Be afraid, little people. The gun nuts are arming themselves.
The Atlantic:‘Security Moms’ Are Back—and That’s Bad News for Democrats – That one’s so obvious an idiot could see the spin. Let the big mean Republicans take care of your national security, little country. Foreign terrorists have not attacked on American soil since Republicans were in charge. But that doesn’t stop the narrative. Meanwhile, no attention is paid to our home-grown terrorists, which thrive courtesy of conservatives.
New York Times:GOP Gains Strength and Obama Gets Low Marks, Poll Finds – Because yesterday is so…yesterday.
CBS News: Is Obama Tough Enough In Dealing With ISIS? Gosh, I don’t know. Do we really need to aim our drones and missiles at a group of angry terrorists that’s smaller than the population of a small town? Sure, they’re meaner and they’re really great at Twitter and Facebook, but they’re still only 30,000 strong. You tell me, CBS. What do you want, a nuke?
NY Daily News:Sorry, Hillary, Things Are Breaking the GOP’s way – I don’t even understand that headline, much less what to do with it. What’s Hillary got to do with it?
The Atlantic:The Making of a Conservative Superstar, featuring Tom Cotton, who currently trails Mark Pryor in most polls. They might have wanted to hold that shiny profile until after he won, if ever.
Politico:Mark Begich frosty over snow machine ad – Of course he is. First they shoveled his own ad in his face, made him apologize (because Dems always apologize when they shouldn’t) and then shoveled their own piece of crap back at him.
That’s one way to keep the country moving.
