On 5 Nov 2018, Dan Crenshaw was a guest on CNN for an interview that represents the kind of news coverage needed to restore balance and public trust. Various national U.S. media outlets have developed a reputation for reporting on news favorable to the Democratic Party, and stories critical of the Republican Party. Stories perceived to be harmful to the Democratic Party are often not reported on especially during close elections.

In a significant break from recent tradition, CNN had a very positive and supportive interview with Dan Crenshaw to address some criticism he received from ‘the left’ in the days leading up to the election. If news outlets can offer balanced content like this, it will be a big step toward restoring public trust in the media.
