NBC: Obama’s Massive Budget Is ‘Aimed at Helping the Poor and Middle Class’
NBC: Obama's Massive Budget Is 'Aimed at Helping the Poor' (NewsBusters)
ABC's Good Morning America on Tuesday ignored the massive new budget proposed by Barack Obama (and the tax increases contained within). NBC's Today, despite four hours of air time, allowed a scant 23 seconds. But in that brief period, news reader Natalie Morales spun, "President Obama unveiling a record $4 trillion budget on Monday aimed at helping the poor and middle class."
Parroting the White House, she noted that "President Obama says the budget is practical, not partisan." The only hint of opposition came when Morales briefly noted that "Republicans say the plan is just more taxes and spending."
