Several times a week my local newspaper front-pages some lame policy proposal of Grimes or downplays any McConnell action or both. The bias of the [Ashland] Daily Independent is particularly harmful since it pretends to be neutral but their state analyst Ronnie Ellis has become increasingly desperate by combining cherry-picked commentary with straight news. For example last week he and a local reporter united to cheerlead a story of Grimes with a small group of nuns, highlighting their comments without noting their highly political views emanate from an atypical group of lefty Catholics. I don’t care that they highlighted the nuns, it’s that the Ellis analysis is so one-sided, e.g. all groups that support McConnell are routinely x-rayed for any possible link to any possible libertarian or conservative view. He also discussed the filibuster w/o noting the nuclear option recently invoked by the Democratic Senate to eliminate filibuster from any Republicans.
Similarly any Grimes gaffes that can be ignored are ignored. Those that can’t be ignored since they show up in pro-McConnell or anti-Grimes ads are relegated to minor status way down any articles.
But indy filmmaker James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas came out with a devastating today that is so ugly I don’t know if the MSM here – which is liberal – can completely ignore. Worse for Grimes, O’Keefe claims to have more secret video that’s even worse. My guess is the Grimes folks and the Clinton Dems will try to deflect by demonizing O’Keefe but I’ve seen the first video and the Grimes campaign and KY Dems are cynical and contemptuous of Kentucky voters.
“Politics is a lying game” from a KY Dem and Grimes operative is just a damning quote. “She has to say what she has to say to get elected” isn’t much better.
