Hours after several election experts projected Republican Glenn Youngkin the winner in Virginia’s governor race, Fox News came in dead last, as the establishment media complex (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, NYT, and Politico) called the race in Youngkin’s favor.

The establishment media’s decision to delay calling the race for Youngkin despite his seemingly insurmountable lead puzzled conservatives on Twitter for hours.
Fox News called Arizona for Biden within seconds. They still haven't called Virginia for Youngkin.

Turned on news for first time in at least 2 years. Fox afraid to make a call and it shows, CNN shocked that voters don’t like government telling them what to do. MSNBC blaming a bad national environment and Williams is the talking to me like I’m in 7th grade. Back to jazz for me
