NYT Reporter: Democrats Flooding My Inbox Calling Ossoff a ‘Terrible Candidate’

BY: Jack Heretik
April 19, 2017 9:55 am

New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush said on Wednesday that Democrats have been flooding his email's inbox to call Democratic congressional hopeful Jon Ossoff "a terrible candidate."

Thrush was appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," where he commented on the results of Tuesday's special election race for Georgia's sixth congressional district.

"Look, what is interesting is my inbox this morning has been flooded by Democrats who are sort of saying Ossoff was a terrible candidate," Thrush said.

"I think the larger issue that we're dealing with here right now is the fact that the Democrats just don't have a lot of candidates, not just in Georgia but around the country in general," Thrush continued. "There's not a lot of people to kind of catch this Trump wave, and as we recall from the presidential election, just running as anti-Trump when you don't have a personality to project or a message that's really going to capture people's imagination."

Ouch.

1. They won't listen. They need and intervention for their addiction and yet they do

not have a single politician on the left who can call out and administer the intervention.

Being on the right, I'm not a big supporter of interventions. I think that one has to hit absolute rock-bottom first, then you can help them on the way back up. Each time I think the dems have hit rock bottom they double down with even dumber stuff.

6. I agree

As long as the Dems follow the binary misconception of:

- If we win, it is because the people believe in our platform 100%
- If we lose, it is because of vote manipulation, voter suppression, Russia, etc

...they will continue to self-implode. They aren't at rock bottom yet, but when they inevitably get there, they'll find that self reflection and modifications to their platform (that better match the electorate) will do wonders for their performance.

Not that I expect this to happen soon. Russia has too much control over the voting machines

2. "Who are sort of saying" this? Either they are saying he is a terrible candidate or they are not

No in between.

"Look, what is interesting is my inbox this morning has been flooded by Democrats who are sort of saying Ossoff was a terrible candidate," Thrush said.

"Sort of" doesn't cut it.

3. Pajama boy Ossoff is the perfect candidate

He reminds me of a young Barrack Hussein O.

4. It's a NYT fake news lib reporter saying this, so chances are

pretty strong that there's more to the story.
When it comes to the lib NYT, what's being reported isn't fully accurate.

5. I'm calling bullshit.

99,694 people didn't vote for Jon Ossoff in the 6th congressional district race in Georgia.

http://www.nytimes.com/elections/results/georgia-house-special-election-district-6

Of those 99,694 people who didn't vote for Ossoff, how many of them, do you suppose, took the time out of their day to email a New York Times "reporter" that no one ever heard of to tell him how terrible of a candidate Ossoff is?

10. Some interesting bias you have there. You ASSUME Georgians don't read the NYT?

that's a hell of a regional bias there.

12. Wait a minute, dude.

I never said anything about whether or not Georgians read the New York Times. I said less than 100,000 people didn't vote for him and I doubt that of those who didn't vote for him that they would take time out of their day to email a reporter that no one ever heard of to let him know how bad of a candidate Ossoff is.

Why would you email a reporter at the New York Times to tell him about how bad your local candidate is? Why wouldn't you email a reporter for your local paper where it matters.

Your faux outrage is noted.

16. It just doesn't make sense to me why a reporter that no one has heard of has been getting

all of these emails. Wouldn't it make more sense for people to email someone at the Atlanta Journal - Constitution instead of someone at the New York Times? And if these people who are supposedly emailing him don't even live in the sixth district, who the hell cares what they think? I think we can file this one under fake news.

13. Sounds like bullshit to me.

Bullshit of the worst, most fake-news kind. It's a safe bet that "Democrats" aren't trashing Ossoff---it's desperate republicans, as usual.

15. No no. THIS is fake news.



The OP on the other hand, is sourced with a left leaning reporter, and he says its dems.

Your proof that its Republicans is? Because you wish it was?

L@L.
