While invoking the passing of former President George H. W. Bush, CNN International and PBS host Christiane Amanpour fretted on Thursday’s show that “[a]s President Bush One is laid to rest, one of the Senate’s true moderates heads home in defeat,” blaming it on “conservative dark money,” “negative ads,” and a refusal by voters to accept McCaskill’s manufactured image as someone right down the middle. 

The tone was set from the beginning in a tease ahead of the 19-minute-plus segment: “As President Bush One is laid to rest, one of the Senate’s true moderates heads home in defeat. Did compromise kill Claire McCaskill’s Senate campaign?” Yeesh.
