[See NewsBusters for more.] According to Real Clear Politics, a “perfect storm” is brewing in California that could dramatically turn liberal Governor Gavin Newsom out of office in a recall election. But on the networks, you wouldn’t know that the polls have tightened yet again. ABC, CBS and NBC on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning ignored a brand new Los Angeles Times/UC Berkeley poll showing the “yes to recall” sentiment has risen to its highest level. Fox News on Wednesday covered the big news as host Bill Hemmer explained, “It is getting very interesting in California. New poll shows the radio host Larry Elder emerging as the Republican frontrunner in a race to recall the Democratic governor Gavin Newsom and strong support for ousting the Democrat. Here are the numbers: Forty seven percent  of likely voters back the effort. Fifty percent are against it.”
