[See NewsBusters for full story.] As a winter storm slammed Virginia on Monday, a disaster developed on the busy I-95 highway. Thousands of motorists, including babies, were trapped in freezing temperatures for 12 hours or more, low on gas and food. All of this with no help seemingly coming from the state’s governor. Liberals on Twitter took to blasting new Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin. Except... he’s not governor and won’t take office until January 15th. Democratic Governor Ralph Northam is still responsible for the state. Angry liberals on Twitter raged, saying things like “@GlennYoungkin Virginia governor are you safe and warm?.... UNACCEPTABLE.” But we can assume that the network reporting on Tuesday morning offered serious journalism and accurately pointed out who runs the state and who might be responsible, right? No.
