<p>Following Republican Senator Rand Paul&rsquo;s announcement that he&rsquo;ll be entering the 2016 presidential race, the major broadcast networks each devoted a full segment to the Kentucky Senator&rsquo;s event in Louisville on their Tuesday night newscasts.</p>

<p>After all three networks declined to label Paul a conservative during their morning news shows, ABC&rsquo;s <em>World News Tonight</em> broke ranks and labeled him a<strong> &ldquo;mainstream conservative&rdquo;</strong> on issues such as abortion, gay marriage, and tax cuts. Fellow networks CBS and NBC continued not use the conservative label and stuck to labels such as <strong>&ldquo;Republican&rdquo; </strong>and <strong>&ldquo;libertarian.&rdquo;</strong></p>
