Lazy, Racist, and Otherwise Biased - A Tale of Media Coverage for Two Candidates

Stacey Abrams in Georgia is far more viable than Beto O'Rourke in Texas, but the white media has chosen to ignore her.

Robert Francis O'Rourke is not an impressive candidate. He will not win in Texas. He has embraced extreme positions…

You'd never know that last part from the media profiles of him. Media outlets across the nation have written worshipful, hagiographic profiles of O'Rourke. They've cheered on his Kennedy good looks, his casual use of the word f**k, his willingness to tell truths to Texans, his rejection of gun culture, etc. You would think O'Rourke was the front runner or a Presidential candidate considering all the media attention he has gotten.
