Shameless: CBS Censors Indiana Democrat’s D.C. Lobbyist Past in Covering Senate Race

<p>For the second day in a row, the<em> CBS Evening News</em> committed a disservice to their viewers in covering competitive U.S. Senate races by censoring massive pasts of Democratic challengers with Wednesday featuring the newscast omitting any mention of former Senator-turned-candidate Evan Bayh having a lucrative lobbying career since he left the Senate in 2011.</p>

<p>Just as correspondent Julianna Goldman did in cloaking Pennsylvania Democrat Katie McGinty&rsquo;s pitfalls against incumbent GOP Senator Pat Toomey, correspondent Dean Reynolds fondly described Bayh as <strong>&ldquo;a former two-term Democratic senator who retired six years ago and now wants back in.&rdquo;</strong></p>
