Sure, it’s an opinion piece that doesn’t necessarily reflect the views of CNN, but shouldn’t it at least reflect reality?

On Saturday, CNN published on its site a post entitled, “Tuesday will show if racist fear-mongering can win elections.” Written by Karthick Ramakrishnan, professor of public policy at the University of California, Riverside, the piece took a look at elections in Virginia and New Jersey — but not a very close look.

The piece caught the eye of Hot Air’s John Sexton:

Obviously, the piece had to be about that Latino Victory Fund ad showing a pickup truck with a Gillespie campaign sticker and Confederate flag trying to run down terrified children? Right?

Nope.

Nope.

Nope. Somehow that wasn’t mentioned.

Well, the most racial fear-mongering ad of the year didn’t make the piece, so it must not count as racial fear-mongering, seeing as it backed the Democrat.

Like we said, it’s an opinion piece, but maybe a little bit of reality could have helped the writer’s cause.

Did we mention that the super progressive group Democracy for America announced it would no longer support Northam’s campaign because it was disastrous and racist?
