Three Strikes and You're Out: All Three Networks Apparently Incapble of Googling Bob Filner's Party Identification

CBS did, for three seconds, include a chyron identifying him as Democrat, but did not mention it in the script; NBC and ABC apparently still don't know which party he belongs to.

And, more importantly, neither do their viewers.

Political scandals come in two flavors:

1. "A Republican Culture of Corruption That May Have Started From the Very Top"

or:

2. "Some Guy"

And I can't seem to avoid the conclusion that the media is only interested in Great National Discussions which put Republicans on the back foot.

Newtown: Great National Discussion on Guns

Trayvon Martin: Great National Discussion on Guns and Race

Gosnell: Great National Discussion on Jodi Arias

And the less said about Politico, the better.

Sandra Fluke/"Slut:" Politico says #WarOnWomen

Todd Akin: Politico says #WarOnWomen

Bob Filner: Politico says, "Hey, #FunFact, did you know Bob Filner was a Freedom Rider for Civil Rights?"*

* No really. I'm not making this up. I'm quite serious.


This happened.
