As Republicans take control of both the House and Senate for the first time in eight years, the New York Times is preparing the political ground for GOP failure. Exhibit A: Monday's front-page story by Times congressional reporter Carl Hulse.
In taking control of Congress on Tuesday, Republicans say they will quickly advance energy and health care legislation that stalled in the Democratic-controlled Senate as they try to make good on claims, and address doubts, that they can govern effectively.
“We have sort of laid down the marker, and we need to follow through,” said Senator John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 3 Republican, as the 114th Congress prepared to convene.
Yet a sour note is possible on Tuesday as Speaker John A. Boehner seeks his third term as the House leader. Some disgruntled conservatives have said they will not back Mr. Boehner -- he was embarrassed when a dozen defected two years ago -- and a coup, while unlikely, would represent a disastrous beginning. Some conservative activists also say congressional Republicans are starting out too timidly.
The media are hard at work weaving a web of confusion, misinformation, and conspiracy surrounding the COVID-19
At MRC’s NewsBusters, we cut through the hypocrisy and expose the media’s bias, bringing the truth to the
American people—but without you, our efforts can only go so far.
The media is using whatever crisis it can to swing the upcoming election—they have an agenda and the truth is not
part of it.
This is why NewsBusters, a program of the MRC, exists. To take on the liberal media, expose their toxic bias, and
stop them in their tracks. We are part of the only organization purely dedicated to this critical mission and we
need your help to fuel this fight.
Donate today to help NewsBusters continue to document and expose liberal media bias. $25 a month goes a long way
in the fight for a free and fair media.
