There’s nothing liberal politicians love more than increasing the size of government, enacting overbearing regulations, and limiting the choices of consumers. Those policies seemed to be fine with CBS News because Evening News fill-in anchor, David Begnaud spent some time during Monday’s newscast touting blue state and city laws that were ready to take effect.
“Across the country today, a flurry of new laws, some catching nationwide attention,” Begnaud bragged at the top of the news brief.
One of the more recent and popular virtue-signaling policies of the Democratic Party was the banning of “single-use” plastic objects. So, it’s no surprise that Begnaud would hype how “New York City has banned agencies from buying single-use plastics”, and Washington, D.C. where “there’s a ban on plastic straws.”
There will probably be another one of these kinds of reports in March 2020 when New York’s statewide ban goes into effect. “New York State lawmakers have agreed to impose a statewide ban on most types of single-use plastic bags from retail sales, changing a way of life for millions of New Yorkers as legislators seek to curb an unsightly and omnipresent source of litter,” praised The New York Times.
