How to watch election night 2020 returns on TV and still stay sane


Be patient.

That’s the best way to stay sane while watching election returns Tuesday night — or rather, the returns that begin on Tuesday night. Don’t get antsy if everything isn’t decided then. Whether it’s Donald Trump and Joe Biden in the presidential election or a slew of other contests on the ballot, this could go on for a while.

Also, stay curious. Don’t land on one channel and stay there, particularly if it’s Fox News or MSNBC. Surf wide and surf often. Visit credible media sites. Disinformation is going to be flying around like insults at a Trump rally. Beware its lure.

The City News Bureau of Chicago had a saying about the skepticism necessary to report accurately: “If your mother says she loves you, check it out.”

Good advice. Use it. (Sorry, Mom.)

It’s tough, but you need to be patient

I’ve been writing some version of a how-to-watch-election-returns column for 20 years. It’s easy to say that coverage this year is shaping up to be different than any other — easy to say because it’s true.
