Glasgow Daily Times: KSR Affected the Outcome of the GOP Primary Race.

Ronnie Ellis published a piece in the Glasgow Daily Times yesterday summarizing the outcome of the KY gubernatorial republican primary whirlwind  race. In case you missed it (and if you did, I don’t know how), Matt Bevin beat James Comer by only 83 votes, forcing Comer to request a recanvass. Ellis argues that it was Matt Jones and KSR that changed the face of the election, saying that, “Jones has become a public force in the political arena. […] There is little doubt the KSR Forum affected the final outcome.” Ellis goes on to say that Matt thoroughly pushed the candidates and got revealing responses from them during the radio debate. The debate, he argues, brought in more votes for Will T. Scott and ‘accelerated the decline of Heiner in the polls.’

It’s pretty evident that Matt and KSR changed the dynamic of the GOP primary and that all of the tough questions he asked revealed to the voters crucial information that impacted their votes. I hope this fall that KSR is able to bring the same relevant information to the gubernatorial general election.

Take a look at the article for yourselves:

    What I’d like to know is..Why does Matt Jones give a hoot about the GOP ticket in Kentucky. The man is known Liberal Democrat., he has even stated it on his show… The story says Matt pushed hard for answers and some of those answers just may have swayed some votes to change to another candidate..
    My question is.. Would Matt Jones push Jack Conway that hard for answers, I doubt it…Jack Conway won the Democrat ticket , He will run for Kentucky’s next Governor against someone I call a “” liberal republican”” Matt Bevins, who would side with Democrats more than he would side with Republicans…
    Jack Conway, the Kentucky Attorney General, who has let the Oil company price gouge the people of Jefferson County now for the last few years..Gasoline inside Jefferson County Ky, is anywhere from $0.25 a gallon to $0.50 a gallon higher than any other place in the State…That’s because I believe those oil companies like Shell, BP, Speedway and Marathon are send thousands of dollars to Jack Conway for his race to the State House in Frankfort….So, Matt Jones,,You need to put Jack Conway on the KSR radio and push him for answers Why Gasoline is much higher in Jefferson County Kentucky….Its my opinion Matt Jones helped Matt Bevin, a liberal think Republican win, so Jack Conway will have a better chance in winning in November..

    That’s crap. A tough question is only tough if you don’t have an honest answer. If that honest answer isn’t given ask it until it is or the candidate let’s the voters know they aren’t important enough to hear the truth.

    Like most media outlets.(and I use that term loosely)…KSR probably does not understand that the mission of the media is to report the news…..not interpret the news ( to its point of view politically)… I would hope that KSR would appreciate the situation and status it is most fortunate to enjoy without using said status to become a propaganda machine for the liberal agenda. Having read KSR for a number of years, I doubt Matt will refrain from indulging in political bias, just like he can’t help from indulging in big blue bias. While there is nothing wrong with the latter….the former is most disgusting, and I believe the citizenry of Kentucky and most BIg Blue fans inl are smarter than that..
    While this site is a great place to get big blue news… has been turned into a big blue propaganda machine, conveniently skipping the hard stories,(like Cals bad coaching.). I seriously doubt the temptation to slant political events will escape KSR. IF KSR influences a republican primary race, the temptation to influence a general election to the liberal side will be too much to handle. WATCH OUT BBN…THERE IS A LIERAL ON THE LOOSE DRESSED IN BLUE!……If you’re going to report it….its fair for me to comment on it….

      It’s Matt’s website and he can do as he pleases. If you don’t like it, you have the freedom to avoid it.

      And if 4 Final Fours and a National Title in 6 years is poor coaching, I’ll take it.
