Accuracy in Media

The contrast in headlines is interesting, when you look at it. In 2013, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tossed aside the filibuster by Republicans to invoke the ‘nuclear option.’ The Democratic Party then used it to appoint agency officials for then-President Barack Obama. Here are headlines from 2013:

Washington Post: Reid, Democrats trigger ‘nuclear’ option; eliminate most filibusters on nominees

Politico: Senate goes for ‘nuclear option’

USA Today: U.S. Senate goes ‘nuclear,’ changes filibuster rules

Now, look at what the Democrats are saying about how they regret the “nuclear option”:

The Hill: Schumer regrets Democrats triggering nuclear option

CNN: Do Democrats regret the ‘nuclear option’ now that Trump will be president?
