The Media’s ‘Things to Watch’ in Alabama Are All the Same

Political news junkies must really need help figuring out how to interpret election results. Or, at least, that’s the impression that coverage of Election Days gives every time there’s a big election.

Take Tuesday’s Alabama Senate runoff, for example. The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Politico, The Hill, and USA Today all published “things to watch” pieces that in essence all said the same thing.

Don’t take our word for it, check out these scalding hot takes for yourselves:

The Hill: Can Jones mobilize black voters?

USA Today: Black voters

Los Angles Times: Has Jones convinced African Americans that this election matters to them?

Politico: Will rural conservatives stick with Moore?

Los Angeles Times: Will evangelical Christians turn out for Moore?
