[See NewsBusters for more.] All three networks went into red alert on Friday, hyperventilating about the “chaos” of a shutdown showdown after Donald Trump “torpedoed” a deal as he demanded funding for a border wall.  Of course, the blame went mostly to Republicans. Today co-host Hoda Kotb blasted, “Critics saying it is up to the President and his party to break the gridlock.” On ABC’s Good Morning America, Mary Bruce sulked, “There is real uncertainty and confusion here this morning and many lawmakers are fed up. They were heading towards a solution then the President torpedoed it.  And that shutdown looming is looking more likely than ever.”
