The front of Thursday’s New York Times featured more wishful thinking on the part of the paper, which is still waiting for that off-year anti-Trump electoral surge: “Atlanta’s Suburbs Wonder if Newcomers Will Turn Them Blue.” Fausset threw some old, extraneous accusations of racism into the bargain, while emphasizing alleged conservative intolerance of liberals (in a world where the evidence of political intolerance is weighted in the other direction).

On Friday's CBS Evening News, and again on Saturday's CBS This Morning, correspondent Mark Strassmann filed a report highlighting a newly formed organization of liberal women in Georgia who are working to "turn the red state blue." He also forwarded their views without challenge as he recalled their complaints that President Donald Trump has been pursuing policies that are "anti-immigrant, anti-women and un-American."

USA Today correspondent Heidi Przybyla continued the liberal spin about the Georgia congressional special election into Friday’s print edition, still emphasizing that the non-win by Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff represented doom for Republicans in the form of losing the House in the 2018 midterms.

On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, viewers could see a contradictory message as CNN regulars repeatedly embellished the Sixth Congressional District of Georgia as being solidly Republican -- even though there were also a few times when CNN regulars conceded that Donald Trump only beat Hillary Clinton by about a point in the district. But the CNN regulars still kept going back to painting the district as solidly Republican, using the tags "deep red," "rock solid," "Republican stronghold," "really conservative red," "really ruby red Republican," and "deeply Republican" to refer either to the Sixth District or the state of Georgia in general.

During the April 18 edition of CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota pressed GOP candidate Karen Handel on whether the runoff regarding the special election in Georgia’s Sixth District in 60 days is “a referendum on Donald Trump.”

Handel responded by blasting her opponent, Jon Ossoff, who was the only Democratic candidate and received 48.1 percent of the vote in the election, since he “doesn’t even live in the district” and “couldn’t even vote for himself yesterday.”

MSNBC on Wednesday touted the “extremely close” “symbolic” “victory” for Democrats in Georgia’s special election, seeing the failure to win as a “sign of hope.” MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle also chastised Trump, saying, “President Trump weighing in, going in on a new tweet, really a tirade against the Democrat.”

Despite acknowledging that the media’s chosen candidate in Georgia’s special congressional election on Tuesday, Democrat Jon Ossoff, had fallen short of the 50% threshold necessary to avoid a runoff, on Wednesday, NBC’s Today touted the failed liberal effort as a near win that would send an “ominous sign” to Republicans.

Despite falling short of the 50% of votes needed to win, ABC's Good Morning America crowned Democratic hopeful Jon Ossoff as the victor of Tuesday night’s special election in Georgia. Correspondent Cecilia Vega and anchor George Stephanopoulos gushed over the “rookie” who came “just short” of “winning the whole thing.” GMA used the race’s closeness as a reason to bash Trump while political analyst John Avlon spun that Democrats had “an emotional victory.”

No, that headline is not a joke. Just before midnight between Tuesday and Wednesday, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon swooned that Georgia Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff sounded just like former President Barack Obama when addressing supporters after Tuesday’s special election.

After the networks spent Monday hyping Georgia Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff as the Democrats’ secret “hope,” to flip the state’s formerly Republican-held seat, it was cable news’ turn to obsess over the 30-year-old candidate. MSNBC went all out promoting Ossoff on Tuesday as their “hero” who could take over the Congressional seat, recently vacated by HHS Secretary Tom Price.

On Monday and Tuesday, the Twitter account for NewsBusters-stalking, far-left host Samantha Bee’s TBS show did its part for The Resistance by openly advocating for a Democratic Party victory in the Georgia sixth congressional district special election.

With the polls in Georgia’s special election closing in roughly 24-hours, CBS Evening News spent a segment of Monday night’s program seemingly hyping up the young Democrat running, Jon Ossoff. “30-year old John Ossoff has gone from unknown documentarian to Democratic-cause-celeb in the space of two months,” praised Correspondent Nancy Cordes. This, while poking fun at Republicans who they claim were struggling to hold the seat.
