Dem Falls Short In Georgia, But NBC Sees ‘Ominous Sign’ For GOP

Despite acknowledging that the media’s chosen candidate in Georgia’s special congressional election on Tuesday, Democrat Jon Ossoff, had fallen short of the 50% threshold necessary to avoid a runoff, on Wednesday, NBC’s Today touted the failed liberal effort as a near win that would send an “ominous sign” to Republicans. At the top of the show, co-host Savannah Guthrie desperately tried to spin the Democratic setback as a victory: “Near Miss? The Democratic candidate almost wins in a special congressional race in a seat Republicans have held since the 1970s….Democrat Jon Ossoff nearly pulling off the shocking upset.” Moments later, she hyped the race as “an early test of President Trump’s influence” and cheered that “Ossoff finished on top, falling just short of an outright victory.”
