The Arguing Continues

We are seeing something similar down Pennsylvania Avenue. The New York Times editorial board is blaming Mitch McConnell for the failure of the stimulus plan to pass. This directly contradicts the New York Times’s own headline that first noted the Democrats killed it before it was quickly revised to partisanship killing it.

Why can’t the relief package pass? Nancy Pelosi wants to add in money for a performing arts center, demands for jet engine efficiency, and she wants some language dealing with retirement plans for some newspapers.

These people are not serious. But they are. They are willing to hold up this plan to get what they want. They know the press will cover for them and make excuses for them and blame the GOP for them.

I told you yesterday that before the sunset the media would be in full “Nancy Pelosi Protection” mode. Before noon, Politico ran this headline: “GOP dusts off anti-Pelosi playbook as stimulus negotiations drag on.”

Press coverage of these things has become that predictable.
