To ask the question is to answer it

Blue Virginia wonders - why isn't the press interested in Alabama governor Kay Ivey doing something in blackface in the 60s?
It's not wall-to-wall coverage like Virginia's Ralph Northam.
What's the difference?
Pictures are important.
But the Democratic reaction fueled the interest - many Democrats jumping to push Northam out and then backing off when he didn't run.
And other troubles befell his possible successors.
If Democrats didn't purge Northam, why bother with Ivey?
Although Democrats may wish they purged Northam come Election Day.
