Newsweek editor and author Batya Ungar-Sargon explained to CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday that the media's response to Glenn Youngkin's win in Virginia is the exact reason why the he won.

"The media response to Youngkin's victory is literally the reason that he won," Ungar-Sargon explained.

"I have to admit having watched CNN all week there's been a lot of very good genuflection on this front. Right after the election you saw host after host say, 'this is a victory for white supremacy' and 'racism wins again,'" Ungar-Sargon said. "The Lt. Governor that Youngkin won with will be the first black woman to hold that job."

"When Glenn Youngkin managed to flip majority black districts. When he managed to get 40 to 50 percent of latino voters. Are all of those white supremacists?" Ungar-Sargon asked. "Of course, they're not!"

"It is such a self-own to tell people who are worried about the economy that it's 'white supremacy,'" she added.

Ungar-Sargon said that she felt Tuesday night's elections were "a really good advertisement for my book." She explained that her book "is arguing that a lot of this conversation around 'wokeness' is actually about class."

Batya Ungar-Sargon's is the author of Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy.
