They Think You’re Dumb: Nets Continue Spin of 2020 ‘Moderate’ Dems

[See NewsBusters for more.] The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday waved goodbye to Pete Buttigieg’s 2020 campaign with one last disingenuous claim that the liberal Democrat is a “moderate.” This weekend, all three networks cheered mysterious “moderate” alternatives to Bernie Sanders. Apparently, all you have to do to be a centrist is simply not take a vacation to the Soviet Union like Bernie Sanders. CBS’s Dean Reynolds offered this howler about Buttigieg’s just-ended presidential bid: “The 38-year-old former Navy officer and one of the youngest presidential candidates in modern history rose to the top of a crowded Democratic field with a moderate platform.” That’s just blatantly false. The Democrat vigorously supports abortion at all levels. He actively endorses new gun control legislation and he’s also endorsed packing the Supreme Court with liberals.
