[See NewsBusters for more.] The journalists at CNN on Monday were dazzled by Beto O’Rourke’s habit of apologizing. The CNN on-screen graphic offered a “style contrast,” noting, “O’Rourke Keeps Apologizing, Trump Never Does.” Talking about the 2020 Democrat’s apologizes for “white privilege” as well as for making a self-deprecating joke about raising kids, CNN national political reporter Maeve Reston cheered, “Beto O'Rourke's audience love that he's constantly reflecting, telling people what's in his head. That is his strength.” She touted, “They want to hear him apologize, say how his views is changed. And I think people will give him a chance. You do hear that from Democratic voters over and over again.” Speaking primary voters, Reston complimented, “People have an open mind right now, open ears.”
