The stunning results Tuesday night quickly invited comparisons to Rep. David Brat’s 2014 primary triumph over then-House majority leader Eric Cantor, a race that the late New York Times media columnist David Carr wrote had “exposed a Beltway journalism blind spot.” While some conservative outlets, like Breitbart, focused on the Virginia race, there seemed to be less interest from the political press in nearby Washington D.C.
Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez’s race was fought just a subway ride away for the Manhattan-based media giants. The New York Times interviewed Ocasio-Cortez for articles focused on female and insurgent candidates and the paper’s editorial board ripped Crowley for sending a surrogate to a debate. But the Times — unlike Splinter, Elite Daily, Refinery29, Ozy, and Vogue — did not publish a stand-alone piece on the candidate.
“Kind of pisses me off that @nytimes is still asking Who Is Ocasio-Cortez? when it should have covered her campaign,” former Times executive editor Jill Abramson tweeted Wednesday. “Missing her rise akin to not seeing Trump’s win coming in 2016.”
Wow. They did call the New York Times out …
Eating their own?

They are a hot mess right now.
We can relate. Heh.
Liberal news makes the mistake of pretending the candidate they WANT to win has already won… Same mistake over and over.

It’s worked so far.
Interestingly, fake news turns cannibal in effort to distract that these "experts" don't know much more than their average reader.
