Nets Celebrate Ross Perot: 'Joined Clinton on the Attack' Against Bush

Billionaire and former independent presidential candidate Ross Perot passed away Tuesday after losing his fight with Leukemia at age 89. Of course, the liberal media remembered Perot’s life by celebrating how he helped Democrat Bill Clinton become president in 1992 by spoiling the election for then-President George H.W. Bush, the Republican.

The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seemed to be in such a rush to praise Perot for his performance ’92 that they forgot to mention his age until the very last moments of their reports (as the transcripts below show). In fact, they focused so much on celebrating the effect he had on the election that only one of them (CBS Evening News) cared to mention how he died.

All three reports also had the obligatory comparisons to President Trump. “He was the original billionaire who tapped into working-class anger as a foundation for a presidential campaign,” fill-in anchor Jim Axelrod said on CBS Evening News.
