NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Aggressively Spinning Fetterman’s Debate Debacle

Political News

The one and only debate between Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate candidates was a debacle for Democrat John Fetterman. But the post-debate coverage lauded Fetterman’s “courage,” downplayed his disabilities (or made them a virtue).

Associate Editor Curtis Houck joins the show to discuss his home state of Pennsylvania and the media interest in trying to flip this seat to the Democrats now that Sen. Pat Toomey is retiring. Curtis finds it mysterious that Scarborough would claim Dr. Oz doesn’t “look like a Pennsylvanian.” As Mark Finkelstein wrote, could Scarborough get away with “Ilhan Omar doesn’t look like a Minnesotan”?
