Accuracy in Media

CNN may be running out of anti-Trump material to publish, especially since they are hyping the results of a Kansas special election that was not really narrow. The Republican candidate, Ron Estes, won the election and replaced former congressman Mike Pompeo (who now works in the Trump administration as the CIA director).

The Daily Signal reported that Estes won by 53% to his challenger’s 45%. Did the CNN analysis give the percentages? No, yet it called 8% a “narrow” victory for the GOP because Trump’s margin of victory in that district was overwhelming.

CNN said it could be a warning sign of the 2018 midterm elections, which are over a year and a half away from now. Yet, in the article, CNN admitted that this cannot be a good predictor of the 2018 elections.
