CNN Forgets About Party Identification in Order to Push Democrats Win
Earlier today, CNN correctly recorded that two independents had won Senate races today; Joe Lieberman and Bernie (Socialist) Sanders. But now that the Senate is in reach, CNN suddenly thinks those guys are Democrats:
This is boosterism at best. The Democrats are not, despite CNN's fervent hopes at 48 seats; they're at 46 with two independents that will certainly caucus with the Democrats. So why not star the 48 in the Democrats' column and admit that's why you did it? I don't disagree with the decision, I disagree with the lack of disclosure.
