for 4 yrs (!) people asked, why cover Trump WH briefings everyday, since that had never been done for any previous WH.

it took CNN three weeks to stop airing Biden WH briefings;…
next they’ll start calling Biden “liar”

"After creating new programming rules for the Trump administration and airing virtually every minute of every White House press briefing live and in its entirety, CNN has quietly cut the cord with the new Democratic administration".

sexism is a helluva drug

if you think Manchin would ever try to block senior govt position bc a man’s tweets were too “partisan” I’ve got news for you
it’s entirely possible Manchin doing this bc he knows there’s at least 1 GOP for her

it’s still pathetic, tho
