Ferguson Mayor's re-election sparks race outrage -- especially in the media

Dana Loesch

Ferguson, Missouri’s mayor James Knowles won another three-year term on Tuesday. As the public face of Ferguson after the fatal police shooting of Mike Brown in 2014, Knowles was regularly in the national spotlight. He was challenged by city Councilwoman Ella Jones who was hoping to become the city's first black mayor. She lost by a 14 point margin and blamed apathy for her loss. Mayor Knowles joined Dana Loesch on "Dana" to discuss the outrage being expressed by the media.

Dana pointed out the particularly egregious headline written by NBC published election night: "Ferguson, Missouri, Declines to Elect First Black Mayor."

James found the coverage disgraceful, adding that even the St. Louis Post Dispatched endorsed him. Knowles believes he knows why residents re-elected him by such an overwhelming margin:

"I think a lot of residents felt like they wanted to stick with somebody's leadership that they knew was tried and true."
