People are blaming Republicans in the "Fox Bubble" but the rest of the media [View all]

wasn't much better.
I got to the point where I could hardly listen to NPR because of their citing faulty polls, not following up on insane right wing remarks etc.
I have little idea what the ABCs and CBSs of the world spit out for news as I gave up on them long ago.
CNN has sucked since the day Ted Turner sold it.
My local newspapers have become little more than bird cage liners.

So why wouldn't Republicans not believe they would win. Surely they went to Fox and got stroked, but it wasn't a whole lot better anywhere else in corporate media - and I include NPR in that.

Coming into that last weekend, all I kept hearing was that Romney may win the popular vote. Most of the so-called battleground states were too close to call, especially Ohio.

If you want to talk bubbles, liberals may have been the ones in a bubble. A bubble of truth for sure, but we were the ones getting news differently from most of the rest of the country
