Despite the fact that even liberal outlets such as&nbsp;<em style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;">Politico</em>&nbsp;spun the ending of the furloughs as a loss for the Democrats, GMA's David Kerley failed to do so. A network graphic trumpeted, "<strong>Airport Armageddon Ending? Congress Acting to End Delays</strong>." Kerley adopted an everybody-is-to-blame tone, lecturing, "We say Washington is dysfunctional. But when members hear complaints and it's going to affect them, it's amazing how fast they can act." Yet,&nbsp;<em>Politico&nbsp;</em>announced, "Democrats blink first on aviation cuts." Writers Kathryn A. Wolfe and Burgess Everett concluded, "Democrats caved in and agreed to allow the Federal Aviation Administration to keep air traffic control towers running at close to full capacity." This type of analysis didn't make it to ABC.</p><p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;">Video cross-posted at <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2013/04/26/abc-heralds-end-…;
