After weeks of dismissing the Republican tax plan as one that only benefits the wealthy — and giving time to pundits who predicted far more apocalyptic consequences — MSNBC and CNN have given zero coverage to a survey showing a majority of Americans approving of the bill.
Yet, according to tv clipping service Grabien, which logs transcripts from all network shows over the last year, not a single individual on CNN or MSNBC mentioned the public’s dramatic turnaround in support for the tax bill that saves average American families thousands of dollars annually after The Daily Caller News Foundation conducted a search for “New York Times” and “Tax Reform.”
A search on both CNN and MSNBC’s website for any story showing the tax bill’s popularity also curiously revealed no coverage either.
Of course, it’s not like CNN ignored all polls featured in The Times. CNN devoted a segment discussing a column by two political scientists on Monday, who after surveying various academics, concluded that President Donald Trump is the worst president in the history of the United States. Former President Barack Obama cracked the top 10.
Anchors on both networks were openly critical of the bill before and after its passage. MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle devoted several segments over the past months trying to debunk the so-called benefits of tax reform.
