Democrats should be able to gauge when they’ve made a massive mistake by certain occurrences and the mainstream media turning on them should be one of them.
The mainstream media, with its leftist bent, is usually on the front lines running defense for Democrats at all times, even sometimes to the point of being an enemy to everyone else, including the people it’s reporting the news to. However, after the Democrats voted en masse to kill the Wuhan virus stimulus package to help our economy stay afloat as it tanks, the media are now calling the Democrats out and painting them as villains.
Here’s CNN, usually a bastion of pro-Democrat commentary, calling out the Democrats for their “political gamesmanship.”

The New York Times didn’t do any headline morphing when they actually reported the news accurately, telling its readers that it’s the Democrats that blocked the stimulus package and using no other wording in its headline to soften the blow.
Democrats torpedoed a bipartisan emergency bill that:
-Provides payroll & rent for small business
-Credit to businesses across America to keep them afloat
– Cash in American’s pockets
-⬆️ unemployment benefits
They have no good reasons. Just partisanship. Call your reps NOW. pic.twitter.com/7WvBaX2wxT

Even MSNBC got in on it as they called the Democrats out for now trying to include things in the bill that have nothing to do with the crisis at hand.

The Democrats should definitely know they screwed up when the Washington Post is reporting the news accurately.

My colleague Bonchie covered on Monday how Tom Cotton listed the various things that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are now demanding to be put into the stimulus bill in order for it to pass. Some of these things include offsetting airline emissions by 2025, required early voting, and $15 minimum wages at companies receiving assistance. Things that have nothing to do with the virus.

When even the mouthpieces of the left recognize that the delay is caused, not by concerns for necessary tweaks to the bill but by absolute need to interrupt anything Republicans do in an attempt for a political advantage down the line, and doing so while people are desperate and dying, then it’s time to hang it up and pass the bill. Not only that, it’s probably time to sit back and reexamine your sense of morality and loyalties.
It’s clear that while Pelosi hasn’t been in control of the Democratic party for some time in spirit, she’s now not even in control of herself. She destroyed a bill that was negotiated over for hours on end by both sides of the party due to her hatred for the other side. At this point, there is no spinning what she’s doing and doing so would only bring anyone trying to report in her favor down with her.
