BIZARRO LAND: DNC TV Networks Blame ‘Both Sides’ for Defeat of COVID Relief Bill


[See NewsBusters for more.] The three network morning shows on Friday played the game of moral equivalence, blaming “both sides” in Congress for the Democrats defeating the latest COVID relief effort. In addition to such spin, ABC, CBS and NBC allowed a scant 91 to the liberal effort to stop a bill from passing. On NBC’s Today, Savannah Guthrie pushed the idea that everyone is to blame: “We move to Capitol Hill now where a scaled back Republican coronavirus rescue package did not pass a procedural vote in the Senate yesterday. Both parties failing to budge over the size and scope of the package.” Over on CBS This Morning, co-host Gayle King justified the Democratic move: “Senate Democrats rejected the latest proposal from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as too slim."
