Basic liberal media rule 101.
When the Republicans screw up (or even if they don’t), media is all over them blaming them for everything.
When Democrats screw up, as they are wont to do as they did with the Iowa caucus train wreck, the story isn’t about their screw-up, it’s about how mean and evil the Republicans are for noticing it.
CBS just proved this rule again with their coverage of the Iowa caucus debacle.
What was the story? “Republicans gloat over Iowa caucus meltdown.”

Well, at least it wasn’t “pounce,” their usual favorite. Or “seized upon,” another perennial favorite.
But you think maybe there just might be more to the story, CBS?
Yes, this is the real story. Good grief. https://t.co/jxkf6wkA7T

You just can’t make this up. It’s beyond parody. https://t.co/aTv2bVpXf8

Yeah, it’s the gloating Republicans that are the real problem here.

Does this count as a "pounce" or a "seize?" Or is "gloat" a whole new thing we're trying to introduce now?

Stop pouncing, get your gloat on now.
