White House Believes Media Has “Egg on Their Faces, Yet Again”

From CNN’s Reliable Sources with Oliver Darcy:

The Media’s Big Miss

The White House believes that the press has “egg on their faces, yet again.”

That’s according to a White House official who spoke candidly with me on Wednesday about the media’s “red wave” narrative that wasn’t.

Heading into Tuesday, the dominant narrative in the press — especially right- wing media — was that Republicans were on track to have a big, if not monster, night. Focusing largely on the fragile state of the economy, coupled with the fact that the incumbent party historically doesn’t perform well in such elections, the press had all but declared that Democrats would get trounced from coast-to-coast.
