Senate Democrats blocked another Coronavirus related relief bill this week.
CNN ran a story about it and their headline was fairly accurate.
Then, later in the day, the headline was changed to make it sound better for the Democrats. Did someone get a phone call?
FOX News reports:
CNN mocked for changing headline on Senate Dems blocking $250B small business fund
CNN was lampooned by critics on Thursday after a headline of its report on Senate Democrats blocking financial relief for small businesses was quickly changed.
A $250 billion urgent request to shore up a depleting small business fund failed to pass the Senate Thursday after Democrats objected to the measure pushed by the White House and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
With lawmakers home and social distancing, McConnell sought to pass the cash infusion swiftly Thursday by unanimous consent with a skeleton group of senators, but Democrats blocked the effort because they want add-ons to help businesses in disadvantaged communities and an additional $250 billion in funds for other priorities.
However, many noticed on social media that CNN’s framing of the blocked fund was shifted away from Democrats.

This is happening again. The media can cover for Democrats all they want, but the truth is clear as day: Democrats are blocking common-sense aid packages for no good reason.

CNN proves over and over that they are not a news organization.
They are basically a Democrat super PAC.
