The Media Stopped Covering Roy Moore’s Sex Scandal, Then He Bounced Back

… I’ll cover more of the polling data closer to election day. What I want to address today is the movement in the polls, rather than our estimates of the election day vote share. Specifically, I want to focus on the staggering amount of attention Moore’s scandal garnered in the media, both online and cable. What may be more staggering to some readers, however, is the current near-blatant disregard in the media of the scandal. What once was front page news for multiple days has taken a back seat to other stories. …

This lapse in coverage likely has substantial consequences for Moore. CONT.
