It takes a special kind of ignorance to suggest that the media is working on behalf of Republicans. If you follow political media, you know that with very few exceptions, the media acts as the public relations wing of the Democratic party.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid doesn’t see it that way.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
MSNBC’s Joy Reid Angry Over Coverage of Govt. Shutdown: Media Spin on Behalf of Republicans ‘Predictable’
Left-wing MSNBC host Joy Reid on Monday appeared aggravated about the media’s coverage of the end of the government shutdown, tweeting there was “nothing so predictable as media spin in favor of Republicans.”
Senate Democrats, led by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), forced a government shutdown on Friday when all but five of them voted against a continuing resolution to fund the government through Feb. 16, due to it not addressing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provides legal protections to immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
After a weekend of pointing fingers—Republicans dubbed it the “Schumer Shutdown” while Democrats called it the “Trump Shutdown”—33 Democrats effectively ended the shutdown after less than three days by passing legislation to fund the government through Feb. 8, getting in return a promise by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) to hold a separate vote on immigration legislation before then.
