NPR, deception by omission

Dec. 22, 2018

Since the elections this year, NPR keeps referring to Democrats winning the House, republicans winning the Senate with no mention of the fact that a majority of voters voted for Democrats for the Senate, but a majority of republicans won because of the way that each state has the same number of Senators, regardless of size. The only time I have heard it mentioned was when they were interviewing a republican, and it was the republican that pointed it out!

And NPR keeps saying Democrats in Congress are blocking budget bills, but of course both houses are still in the hands of republicans until Jan., so the Democrats wouldn't be able to block the bills if all the republicans were voting with the president.
