When you dissect Larry Elder’s attempt to unseat Gov. Gavin Newson in the recent California special recall election, the reason he failed sticks out like a sore thumb. Not only was Elder up against the corrupt Democrat Party, but he also faced the wrath of the fake news media.
At center stage was the uber-liberal Los Angeles Times, who labeled Elder the “Black Face Of White Supremacy” in a headline right out of the campaign box. When Elder called The Times out in an editorial board interview, they were speechless, but that didn’t deter the fake news. Later in the campaign, Elder was attacked by a woman wearing a gorilla mask during a visit to Venice Beach. The Times published an article with the headline: “LAPD is investigating altercation involving Larry Elder at Venice homeless encampment.” It included a misleading photo, where Elder appeared to be slapping a woman. And on and on.
The usual political suspects stormed into California in support of Newsom, appearing in a flurry of campaign ads. Says Elder, “Notice they never uttered the following words: Gavin Newsom has done a good job for the people of California.” More with Elder for Epoch Times.
