I love every word of this piece. There's good journalism and good living to be had out here in flyover country. 
@robertblizzard Fair enough. I don't have data on media markets .All I know is Trump lost all the counties containing those 11 cities. Still, there's no way Trump won the Austin media market.
@rking7066 @robertblizzard @MediumBuying @realDonaldTrump In fact, Trump didn't win 11 of those 15 metros. Clinton carried Birmingham, Atlanta, Nashville, New Orleans, Austin, Columbus, Memphis, Tampa, Norfolk, Louisville, and Richmond.
@robertblizzard The more likely common thread is those are all cities in SEC country and cities that are major college football hotbeds (Austin, Columbus). Simply put, college football fans--especially SEC fans--tuned in. I don't think we need to politicize everything.
@robertblizzard You're mistaken. Trump certainly didn't win Austin. And I don't think he won New Orleans, Memphis, Atlanta, or Tampa, either.
