Lamont Shutout Confirmed
So, I wasn't just imagining the Lamont shutout. Media Matter's reports:
Summary: During their August 9 coverage of the Connecticut Democratic Senate primary, the three major broadcast networks' morning news programs interviewed Sen. Joseph Lieberman but failed to host the winner, Ned Lamont, or any of his representatives. Additionally, NBC's Today and CBS' The Early Show aired twice as much footage of Lieberman's statements following the election as they ran of Lamont's statements.
It's really pretty amazing. Lamont achieves the defeat of a powerful and well-known Senator like Lieberman, and not a single network news program thinks to even bring the guy on to do an interview?
