In a special “runoff” election Tuesday night, the last Senate seat up for grabs in 2018 was claimed by the Republican, Cindy Hyde-Smith, by a 54% – 46% margin over the Democrat, Mike Espy.
I guess the “blue wave” didn’t make it too far ashore in the state of Mississippi!
But I digress.
Not only did Hyde-Smith win, giving the Republicans a 53-47 margin in the Senate, she was the first woman elected as a senator from the state of Mississippi. So it was historical in that aspect as well.
Other than possibly the news regarding the migrant caravan on our southern border, this election story should probably have been the most newsworthy item out there this morning.
So, how did the “biased, liberal, fake news media” choose to cover this election story?
Well, let’s take a look the day after the election.
On “The Washington Post’s” website, you have to scroll down to the 28th story listed there. The headline reads: “Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith wins racially charged election over Democrat Mike Espy.”
On “Yahoo News,” we have to scroll down to the 100th story listed there, where the headline reads: “Mississippi voters send Hyde-Smith back to the US Senate after runoff marred by controversy.”
On the MSNBC website, there is no mention of election results at all until we see a reference to a story that appears on their show, “Morning Joe,” regarding the election. And we only see this after scrolling over halfway down the website, past 39 other stories.
Lastly, we have our good friends over at CNN. Of the 100 articles listed on their website, we find no headline about the actual election results. The only story we find is titled: “What we learned from the 2018 Senate race.”
We can see that even when the story is mentioned, albeit as an afterthought, it only appears with some sort of negative connotation along with it.
You see, when reality doesn’t support the narrative, reality is just basically ignored by the “biased, liberal, fake news media.
I call this “propaganda by omission,” and it is conducted by the “biased, liberal, fake news media” almost every day.
Alternatively, suppose the democrat had won the election in Mississippi.
Do you think the “biased, liberal, fake news media” would have covered the story any differently?
Do you think the story would have appeared more prominently in their “story pecking order?”
Do you think we may have seen more positive headlines, bordering on being almost joyous in nature?
The answers to these questions are YES, YES and YES.
So once again, we have a blatant display of how the “biased, liberal, fake news media” operates.
They can deny their bias, preferential treatment, misinformation and propagandizing all they want, but we are wise to their tricks now and they have our full and undivided attention. Their days of getting away with this are over!
