They Don't Get It

Fred --
It's been a quite a week. In the fallout of a historic election, we're looking at reactions from conservative media figures. Some are completely changing their tune, others are remaining inside their bubble. And that's not to mention the stunning story of Fox's sexism on election night.

Jennifer Rubin Comes Clean

Jennifer Rubin's Washington Post platform is well-known for just blatantly pushing Mitt Romney spin. Simon Maloy notes that after Romney lost, Rubin presented a completely different version of events that contradicted what she wrote during the campaign. Read those contradictions here: http://action.mediamatters.org/r?u=http%3A%2F%2Fmm4a.org%2FPXtCwu&utm_campaign=weekly_118_2&n=7&e=281829f68d739d1ebda7df39736cad5a6c6efbfa&utm_source=mediamatters&utm_medium=email

Inside Fox News On Election Night

New York magazine's Gabriel Sherman had an insider report on Fox News' Ohio call, describing Karl Rove's fight to stop the network's from declaring that President Obama won Ohio. Sherman also reported that Fox had Megyn Kelly walk on camera back to the room where the calls were made because the network wanted to "show off" her legs. Read more about election night at Fox News here: http://action.mediamatters.org/r?u=http%3A%2F%2Fmm4a.org%2FPXAkm7&utm_campaign=weekly_118_2&n=11&e=281829f68d739d1ebda7df39736cad5a6c6efbfa&utm_source=mediamatters&utm_medium=email

We're Still Waiting On That Landslide, Dick Morris

Dick Morris' analysis was a punchline even before the election results were in. And after he got everything wrong on election night, he became the archetype of the Fox News bubble. We've compiled 12 of Morris' worst election predictions, all built on his terrible analysis. Will Fox hold him accountable for these awful predictions, or will they keep him around to say what they want to hear? http://action.mediamatters.org/r?u=http%3A%2F%2Fmm4a.org%2FPXwkSH&utm_campaign=weekly_118_2&n=14&e=281829f68d739d1ebda7df39736cad5a6c6efbfa&utm_source=mediamatters&utm_medium=email

Has The Right Wing Reached Peak Fantasy?

Even beyond Dick Morris, right-wing figures like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck were certain Mitt Romney was going win. They relied on pundits they respect - Karl Rove, George Will, Michael Barone, and more, all of whom predicted a Romney landslide, before election night burst their bubbles. Eric Boehlert explores how the politics of hate and derangement led to this: http://action.mediamatters.org/r?u=http%3A%2F%2Fmm4a.org%2FTuh0Yb&utm_campaign=weekly_118_2&n=17&e=281829f68d739d1ebda7df39736cad5a6c6efbfa&utm_source=mediamatters&utm_medium=email


Rush Limbaugh had dedicated four years of his life to hoping that President Obama would fail. Now, in the midst of an economic recovery and with President Obama reelected, Limbaugh admitted he was "puzzled" and lamented: "We're outnumbered ... we've lost the country" http://action.mediamatters.org/r?u=http%3A%2F%2Fmm4a.org%2FVTiZr0&utm_campaign=weekly_118_2&n=20&e=281829f68d739d1ebda7df39736cad5a6c6efbfa&utm_source=mediamatters&utm_medium=email


The Wall Street Journal gave American Crossroads founder Karl Rove a platform this election (and initially did not even disclose that role). In his first column after the election, Rove discusses what worked for the Obama campaign. Not surprisingly, it's exactly what Rove said in previous columns would not work. http://action.mediamatters.org/r?u=http%3A%2F%2Fmm4a.org%2FT9PHEJ&utm_campaign=weekly_118_2&n=23&e=281829f68d739d1ebda7df39736cad5a6c6efbfa&utm_source=mediamatters&utm_medium=email

Michael Moore: Morning in America
Congratulations everyone!! This country has truly changed, and I believe there will be no going back. Hate lost yesterday. That is amazing in and of itself. And all the women who were elected last night! A total rebuke of Neanderthal attitudes.
Grover Norquist: How Stand the Correlation of Forces in American Politics?
Last night voters confirmed the status quo of the 2010 election which brought a strong, united Republican majority in the House and enough Republican senators to filibuster any particular piece of legislation and a weakened, but re-elected president.
Rosario Dawson: The Future Has Voted
They've come out of the shadows to fight for their families and themselves. And now, the ones who can have shown that they will vote -- and that makes me explosively optimistic about our shared future.
Mark Cuban: Fox News Should Watch Dancing With the Stars
When we got to the last week before the election, I noticed a subtle change in the branding of this election by Fox. Outside of Bill O'Reilly and Chris Wallace, Fox was relentless in sending the message that a Romney win was imminent.
