Baby it’s cold outside in Minnesota, but we’re getting warmed up on our recap of Hot Air’s top 50 posts of the year. Today we tackle positions 40-31, in which we find media bias, bad polling, media scrutiny of tweets but not so much on explanations for physical collapses — and another intrusion from 2015 to boot. Let’s start with a story in which the national media hasn’t shown a lot of interest — a political corruption story with high-ranking figures involved that has largely escaped notice because it’s taking place in the media backwater of, er ….New York?

Be sure to tune in tomorrow, when we have another presidential-debate live blog, gender-neutral bathrooms and their inevitable issues, cold opens, and an Obama cold shoulder to voters in Louisiana.
