On October 30, Elizabeth Evans put up a video on Youtube with a simple message:
This is my four year old daughter, Abigael, after hearing one too many mentions of the election.
The video went viral with over three million views.
NPR was moved enough to issue a formal apology to Abigael:
On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the campaign's gone on long enough for us, too. Let's just keep telling ourselves: ‘Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days.’
