<p>[See <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2015/02/03/nbc-obamas-massi…; for more.] ABC&#39;s Good Morning America on Tuesday ignored the massive new budget proposed by Barack Obama (and the tax increases contained within). NBC&#39;s Today, despite four hours of air time, allowed a scant 23 seconds. But in that brief period, news reader Natalie Morales spun, &quot;President Obama unveiling a record $4 trillion budget on Monday aimed at helping the poor and middle class.&quot;&nbsp; Parroting the White House, she noted that &quot;President Obama says the budget is practical, not partisan.&quot; The only hint of opposition came when Morales briefly noted that &quot;Republicans say the plan is just more taxes and spending.&nbsp;</p>
