CBS Somehow Fails to Label Tom Steyer a Progressive or Liberal

13 views

[See NewsBusters for more.] CBS This Morning on Thursday scored an exclusive interview with Tom Steyer, a newly announced Democratic presidential candidate, yet never once managed to refer to him as progressive or liberal. Instead, he is simply a “billionaire activist” who also is leading an expensive campaign to impeach Donald Trump. Avoiding the liberal label, co-host Anthony Mason introduced, “Tom Steyer, the billionaire investor and activist who spent millions advocating for the impeachment of President Trump, is launching a campaign to take a job.” In a tease for the segment, guest co-host Michelle Miller called him the “the activist billionaire.” But, again, no ID of him as very progressive.
