<p>On Monday night, the &ldquo;big three&rdquo; of ABC, CBS and NBC each spent portions of their evening newscasts reporting on the resignation of a House Republican staffer after she criticized Sasha and Malia Obama on her personal Facebook page. This marks the second full day of coverage since the first reports aired on Sunday morning and provides another example of a media double-standard between Democratic and Republican administrations.</p>

<p>During the <em>CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley</em>, CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante characterized what GOP aide Elizabeth Lauten wrote as a <strong>&ldquo;snarky posting&rdquo;</strong> which anchor Scott Pelley said <strong>&ldquo;sparked a firestorm.&rdquo;</strong></p>
