On Monday, both and ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning adopted Democratic Party talking points as reporters spun a congressional spending deal to avoid a government shutdown as a win for liberal lawmakers.

ABC Congressional Correspondent Mary Bruce noted that the budget agreement “ends any suspense over a government shutdown and delivers victories for both parties.” After mentioning that “Republicans are likely to tout a big boost in military spending,” Bruce declared: “Democrats are going to be pleased that they were able to hold off cuts to popular domestic programs, including for medical research and infrastructure.”
