Biden Nominee Imploding, CBS Doesn't Mention Why


[See NewsBusters for more.] Joe Biden is facing his first cabinet nominee defeat as White House Budget Office pick Neera Tanden is imploding over (now deleted) nasty tweets about conservatives, "vampire" Republicans, and pretty much anyone she dislikes. Yet ABC and NBC on Monday night and Tuesday morning ignored the story. CBS covered it, but offered no reason as to why the nomination was falling apart. On Monday’s CBS Evening News, reporter Kris Van Cleave allowed one sentence, amounting to a scant nine seconds: “President Biden's choice to lead the White House Budget Office Neera Tanden appears to be in real trouble after four moderate senators said they were no votes.”
