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

<p>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 <strong>&ldquo;the Republican controlled legislature&rdquo;</strong> and Nixon&rsquo;s unknown successor (set to be elected in 2016) <strong>&ldquo;will follow through&rdquo;</strong> with funding the commission&rsquo;s recommendations.</p>
