Los Angeles Times (Frederic J. Brown / AFP / Getty) The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday that conservatives have pointed out the double standard in the media’s response to a violent racist attack on Larry Elder (R), the leading rival to Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) in the Sept. 14 recall.
The Times noted that “conservatives have jumped in” with “accusations of a double standard” after Elder was hit in the head with an egg by a white woman wearing a gorilla mask on Wednesday — an attack that certainly would have been interpreted as racist had Elder been a Democrat.
