Returning to the issue of Ferguson, Missouri on Monday, ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News touted the findings and recommendations of a commission set up by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon with both promoting the commission’s calls to increase the minimum wage and CBS neglecting to label Nixon a Democrat. 

Also looking to pin the success or failure of the commission on Republicans, CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller fretted that it remains to be seen whether or not “the Republican controlled legislature” and Nixon’s unknown successor (set to be elected in 2016) “will follow through” with funding the commission’s recommendations.
