[See NewsBusters for more.] During the 2020 Democratic primaries, CBS This Morning journalists have repeatedly spun several of the candidates as “moderates.” (With the exception of socialist Bernie Sanders. That would probably be too much of a stretch.) This happened again on Monday as Ed O’Keefe labeled liberal Senator Amy Klobuchar a “moderate.” He also touted which candidates in New Hampshire are securing the “moderate” vote. Before playing a clip of the Minnesota Senator hyping her campaign donations, O’Keefe spun: “Another moderate, Senator Amy Klobuchar is surging in late polls.” Klobuchar hardly represents the center. Her lifetime American Conservative Union score is 4. (In 2017, it was 0. In 2018, it rose to 5.)
