This Election Pivot is a Tad Early

Posted: October 21, 2022 by datechguy in Uncategorized

Back in the days when the media pretended to not be trying to elect democrats in years that looked bad for the left you would keep your eye on the last week before the election.

It was during this week that reporter and networks who were predicting optimistic results for the left would suddenly discover stories that they had been burring or pols that looked bad or potential problems that could hurt the left that had been out there for month but never came up.

There were two reasons for this:

  1. It was too late to change votes
  2. They need to be able to say when hit on it “Yeah we coved that.”

Well the election is three weeks away but apparently Morning Joe has decided that things are so bad that there is no point in burring this (via Citizen Free Press)

And they are even pointing the finger as to the cause:

This tells me that they know what’s coming and need to prepare the MSNBC niche market audience that has not been exposed to how bad things are looking.

I think it’s a good sign.
