4. That is not a rational answer

Obviously you didn't read the entire article because I seriously doubt you would have replied as you did if you had.

The article don't say a darn thing about whether the media thinks it is a close race or not. It relies entirely on poll trends and election statistics. Either the race is close and getting tighter or it is not. The article makes a case that it is, it doesn't make a rats butt as to whether the media wants it to be close or not.

Whether the media wants a close race or not has nothing to do with whether it is a close race or not unless you are into the conspiracy theory that the media is favoring Trump somehow to make it a close race. I don't know where your get media fix, but over the last few weeks CNN has been hammering Trump surrogates on Trump's lies and gross inconsistencies of his entire campaign. Meanwhile major print media organizations are almost daily publishing the results into new investigations into Trump's shady dealings. While Hillary has a few issues like the emails which won't seem to go away, they are frankly getting boring to the general public, Trump seems to have a new issue every day that the media is hammering him on.

For instance, it is difficult for the media to talk about "play for pay" with regards to a charitable organization didn't benefit the Clintons and to which they gave a million dollars when Trump illegally used his charitable organization to bribe the Attorney General of Florida to drop an investigation into Trump University.

The bottom line, maybe maybe you need to rethink your choice of the media you are consuming.
