Media BiASSed: Excuses, excuses….


1. CBS Ignores Dems Blaming Pelosi for Georgia Defeat, ABC Brushes Over

 

In the wake of the Democrats’ humiliating defeat in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District Tuesday night, members of the party were in a rush to cast blame on someone. And for many Democrats that blame fell on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Even with the loud calls for new leadership, CBS News decided to omit them from their reporting Wednesday evening. Meanwhile, ABC’s coverage simply brushed over them in a 40-second-long news brief. NBC was the only network to give the blaming serious consideration.

2. Despite Sweeping Special Elections, WashPost Sees Bad ‘Sign’ for GOP in 2018

 

Washington Post journalist Ed O’Keefe on Wednesday attempted to spin away yet another loss for Democrats in a congressional election. Appearing on CBS This Morning, he even insisted that the GOP going four-for-four in congressional races is a potentially bad “sign” for 2018. Talk about fake news.

3. CNN’s Avlon Blames Ossoff Loss on District ‘Rigged’ to Favor Republicans

 

Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday’s New Day, left-leaning CNN political analyst and Daily Beast editor John Avlon tried to spin Democrat Jon Ossoff’s defeat in Georgia as being because of a “rigged system of redistricting” that gave Republicans a “heavy advantage.” Avlon: “All the money in the world can’t fight a plus nine Republican advantage. Folks got to remember there’s a rigged system of redistricting in this country which means all districts are not created equal. Republicans were set up to have a heavy advantage in this district.”

4. Andrea Mitchell: ObamaCare Failing Because of GOP ‘Sabotage’

 

Commiserating with Democratic Senator Michael Bennett on her 12 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday over the Republican heath care reform plan, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell accused the GOP of “trying to sabotage” ObamaCare. She fretted to the Colorado lawmaker: “The other issue here is what’s happening to ObamaCare and whether the White House is trying to sabotage ObamaCare by missing deadlines where insurance companies have to decide whether to re-up. What are you hearing around the country?”

5. Sean Spicer Calls Out ‘Snarkiness’ of Wannabe ‘YouTube Stars’ in the ‘Mainstream Media’

 

On Wednesday morning, White House press secretary Sean Spicer gave an interview to rumored replacement and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham and lambasted the opposition party that he faces at the Briefing Room podium as wannabe “YouTube stars” thirsting for “getting their clip on air” tussling with Spicer.
