Did we *ever* see this kind of relentless CNN handwringing when Trump was president w/ a 37% approval rating?
you’ll be shocked to learn the weekend poll from CBS showing Biden w/ a 50% approval is strategically omitted here
In fact, CNN announces Biden’s approval is “slipping fast” while ignoring CBS poll that showed him up 8 pts since Sept
there are so many things wrong w/ this piece

here's a doozy: CNN claims GOP obstruction is NOT what's holding up Biden agenda, while CNN concedes Dems need to use reconciliation bc **zero** GOP support

hard to describe how dishonest CNN is here

says its new poll contains “bad news” for Biden and **never mentions it has Biden polling at 50%**
classic example of when news outlets tries to bury their own polling bc results don’t match preferred narrative
also, seriously??? after 4 yrs of pathological liar, raging narcissist and racist in the WH, CNN’s beef is that Biden is too cordial?

press flushed the CBS poll, will they try to flush CNN too?

“The specifics from the CBS poll:  Only 10% of Americans say they know a lot about what's in the Build Back Better plan, while a majority admit to either not knowing any specifics or anything at all about the bill.”
“The irony is that CBS reported the polling results without ever acknowledging that Americans likely don’t know what’s in Build Back Better **because news outlets like CBS have done such a poor job explaining it.**”

DC press did *not* see this coming
quick explainer: GOP had told Dems we oppose raising debt, and vote is filibustered, so you need 10 GOP votes instead of straight Dem vote

then McConnell blinked said ok to temp debt deal, but vote still technically filibustered and he can’t find 10 GOP’s to vote yes.

“Trump directly asked the Justice Department nine times to undermine the election result”
during this period, Politico dismissed Trump’s behavior as nothing more than “bad sportsmanship”;
from @POITICO: "So far this looks a lot more like bad sportsmanship accompanied by a misinformation campaign, and not some well-thought out plot to stay in power. "
