The current poll numbers suggest California’s angry and arrogant Democratic governor will remain in office Wednesday morning, concluding the state’s recall election, but among the many victims in the once-great Golden State is the death of truth and fairness in journalism.
Four weeks after American Family News reported a slim majority want Gov. Gavin Newsom gone, the newest compilation of polls at FiveThirtyEight.com shows more Californians want to keep him, now 57%-40% for keeping him in office.
Some polls also showed a narrow split of 48%-47% in past weeks, leading the angry, desk-pounding governor to lash out (pictured above) during a recorded interview with The Sacramento Bee newspaper.
Meanwhile, frustrated Californians have witnessed their governor ignore his own business-destroying lockdown rules to eat at a fancy restaurant. He also sent his own child to attend a private school while public schools were closed down across the state.
Now, more recently, California are witnessing The Los Angeles Times attempt to protect Newsom by attacking his main opponent, radio show host Larry Elder, on both the front page and the opinion page.
American Family News reported in a Sept. 1 story that a Times columnist called Elder the “black face of white supremacy,” and that op-ed was followed by a newspaper editorial that bizarrely fantasized about California’s future if Elder is elected governor. Not to be outdone by its far-left opinion page, the Times is being called out for not only downplaying a physical attack on Elder last week but for brazenly making it appear as if the Republican candidate had attacked someone himself.
Elder was touring a homeless camp near Venice, when a woman wearing a gorilla mask threw an egg at him.
Responding to the incident, the Times published two stories, and posted both of them on social media, but the newspaper’s attempt to smear Elder was obvious for all to see, Fox News reported.
The first story was headlined, “Larry Elder cuts Venice tour short after scuffle breaks out,” which described the incident.
The second headline reads “LAPD investigating Larry Elder homeless attack in Venice,” but that story is accompanied by a photo of Elder with his hand on the cheek of a woman. It appears from the photo the candidate is literally slapping her.
In her own Twitter post, the woman in the photo, Soledad Ursua, called the photo a “deceiving pic” because she was about to hug Elder. Ursua, who serves on the Venice Neighborhood Council, stated that people were yelling racial slurs at Elder, too, and the popular radio host told Fox News he heard racist words, too.
Elder: No ‘hate crime’ because I’m Republican
A white woman wearing a gorilla mask assaulting a black politician? You would think the mainstream media would be all over that story but, of course, he is a member of the wrong political party.
“If I were a Democrat,” Elder told Fox News, “obviously this would be called systemic racism. They’d be calling it a hate crime.”
In the same interview, Elder reminded Californianstheir governor “shut down” businesses across the state but gathered with friends for a birthday part at the exclusive French Laundry restaurant.
“The very people,” Elder pointed out, “who drafted the mandates were sitting there with him.”
Republicans and conservatives are not surprised, sadly, to witness the race-sensitive national media shrug its collective shoulders at Elder but, even worse, the Media Research Center says the the far-left media is downplaying the incident as funny because, in their view, Elder deserved what he got.
According to Kyle Drennen of MRC, “Good Morning America” and “CBS Morning Show” briefly covered the incident.
“But they covered it almost as if it was a gaffe,” Drennen complains, “just to show you how unpopular Larry Elder is: Look, he got eggs thrown at him.”

What in the hell do Californians see in this guy? In the Democrat Party? Life out there gets worse and worse and the voters keep banging their heads against the same wall over and over and over again.
Enjoy your headache you bunch of morons.
IF he does remain then THOSE CRETINS OUT there, deserve all they get!
Well, seems they get who they voted for.. he won recall by 62 to 38%..
i would call newsome a dirt ball but that would not be fair to dirtballs.
All the voices from last year calling for diversity have now gone silent when we have a chance to elect California’s first black governor. California democrats are siding with the arrogant rich white man that is wealthy enough to avoid the consequences of his own actions. Could sure use some of those votes from people who ran away to other states.
Just like they demanded diversity in the GOP< BUT elected an OLD WHITE MAN as president.
sad what politics has come down to! as our illustrious Vp has stated oh! that was politics so i guess that’s a legitimate reason to lie. she said this after her attack against joe after the debats she had been questioned as to why or how she would be a candidate with joe.as many feel this was a contract with the devil.as she surely was assured joe would be gone in a short time.so, she was next in line another sad move.pelosi is third??joe’s handler’s have made more of a fool out of him. his family is to blame,too! they had to know of his problems.i guess the prestige,plus who knows what else was promised. good bye America as we know it pray to God for a miracle
I wonder, how much fraud was involved in him winning his recall?
another rigged election for a rat democrat and the gop is silent.
this piece of garbage newsome is being bread by the commies to run for president of whats left of the united states.
i suppose the sorry a$$ gop will roll over for that as well.
