[See NewsBusters for more.] Voter fraud? Yawn. CBS This Morning showed yet again that journalists want to challenge those in power only when Republicans are involved. When given a chance to demand answers about vote counting in the ongoing presidential recount, co-host Anthony Mason instead offered a cupcake interview with Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro. On the idea of accepting late ballots, Mason wondered, “The Trump campaign is asking the Supreme Court to join an appeal to throw owl mail-in ballots received up to three days after election day. Talk us through that law quickly if you can and why it exists?” He invited the partisan Democrat to hammer Donald Trump: “The President has already claimed that he's won Pennsylvania. What's your reaction to that?”
