No Media Bias there!
CBS’s Cynthia Bowers trumpeted the inauguration of incoming Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Monday’s Early Show, highlighting how the former Obama chief of staff went “weeding in a community garden. He called it…weeding out corruption.” Bowers also acclaimed the legacy of former mayor and “family man” Richard M. Daley, despite referencing the poor high school graduation in the city.
Anchor Erica Hill played up the changeover in her introduction for the correspondent’s report: “It’s a big day in Chicago this morning. It’s actually the end of a dynasty there. Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel is taking over as the city’s mayor.” She then noted how the Democrat “got a little emotional yesterday when he was asked if he’ll be thinking about his family in his inaugural speech” and played a clip of Emanuel choking up during a recent interview.
