Networks Warn of ‘Hard-Right,’ ‘Staunchly,’ ‘Incredibly Conservative' Kansas Candidate


[See NewsBusters for more.] A danger is looming that journalists want to warn Americans about. ABC, CBS, MSNBC and CNN on Wednesday all fretted about Kansas’s possible new Republican gubernatorial candidate, labeling Kris Kobach a “hard-right,” “staunchly,” “incredibly conservative” choice. This kind of ideological hand-wringing stands in contrast to the warm response socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received. She earned some labels, but enjoyed a gentle response from journalists. With 100 percent of the precincts reporting, Kobach leads incumbent Republican Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer by less than 200 votes. With this development, the labels began flying. CBS This Morning guest co-host Vladimir Duthiers warned: “The hard-right conservative Kris Kobach is deadlocked with the incumbent primary for governor.” Reporter Ed O’Keefe highlighted “his incredibly conservative positions on immigration.”
