<p>In a move as rare as finding a four-leaf clover, Norah O'Donnell actually disclosed on the 6 November 2013 edition of <em>CBS This Morning</em> that New York City Mayor-Elect Bill de Blasio ran a "very liberal campaign". Jeff Pegues also noted how the "52-year-old liberal" is a "proponent of...taxing the wealthy". The program was also the sole Big Three morning newscast to underline de Blasio's political ideology and devote a full report to his electoral win.<br /><br />However, the show ended up gushing over the hard-left politician. O'Donnell asserted that de Blasio is "suddenly a national political figure", while Pegues trumpeted that "Bill de Blasio will soon be a household name". Charlie Rose and Gayle King later ballyhooed the election results:<br /><br />CHARLIE ROSE: It's going to be a very interesting time to live in New York-<br /><br />GAYLE KING: Yes, it is-<br /><br />ROSE: And to see this transition from one philosophy to another....<br /><br />KING: After 12 years of Mayor Mike Bloomberg, it's going to be very, very fascinating.</p>
