It would be the perfect media narrative. Barack Obama, a candidate molded in the image of a technocratic Millennial’s fantasy who had a Facebook profile way back in 2006, is losing in the social media theater to William Mittens Romney, who is an actual grandfather. So shocking it has to be true. Cue the contrarian articles and arbitrary data-parsing. There’s only one problem: the debate is totally irrelevant.
Join KALW for NPR's special coverage of the third anf inal debate between Democratic nominee President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Governor Mitt Romney, hosted by Guy Raz and Audie Cornish. Monday from 6-8pm.
