What party? … Yesterday the Associated Press released a story on the first day of Senator Robert Menendez’s trial for corruption and bribery. The only problem is the story got Menendez’s party affiliation wrong. Earlier this week, I covered how the NY Times left out Menedez’s Democratic Party affiliation altogether. The AP, as published on NBC News’ website, upped the ante further, calling the senator a Republican. The story was corrected, and unlike the Times, NBC added an editor’s note explaining the mistake.
Network news ignores Menendez trial … While the cable networks covered the Menendez trial — though not at the level they would have if the senator were a Republican — NewsBusters reports that the three broadcast networks didn’t cover the first day of the trial on their evening newscasts. Only CBS actually reported on the trial at all, during its morning program. One wonders if the nets will even cover the verdict!
