Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer Caught on Tape Instructing Fellow Dems on How to Spin Media, Networks Ignore
A non-story to ABC, CBS, and the NBC Nightly News. Just imagine if this was John Boehner or Mitch McConnell caught on tape saying something like this.
New York Senator Chuck Schumer was caught on tape Tuesday instructing his Democratic colleagues on how to spin the media with regard to “extreme” Republicans and their budget cuts. "I always use extreme...That is what the caucus instructed me to use,” Schumer blurted.Schumer caught on tape (yesterday): "I always use the word extreme, that's what the caucus instructed me to do the other week" (Audio)
The liberal senator was apparently unaware his comments were being recorded (The remarks were made moments before a conference call with reporters began.) Tuesday’s nightly newscasts on NBC, ABC and CBS all skipped the story. On Wednesday, Good Morning America, Today and Early Show did the same.
While ABC’s GMA found no time for Schumer and his planned spin for journalists, the ABC program did cover breast-feeding dolls and whether it’s “too much too soon.”
CBS’s Early Show featured a former girlfriend of the late JFK Jr. She informed viewers that kissing him was “magical.”
NBC’s Today covered a conversation between two babbling babies
