After spending three hours on Sunday changing their titles to be more pro-Democrat the New York Times finally got around to blaming Senator Mitch McConnell for Pelosi destroying the coronavirus relief bill.
initially, when Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi destroyed the ability for relief to get into the hands of Americans, even the New York Times was onboard. They wrote, “Breaking News: Senate Democrats blocked action on a sweeping economic rescue plan, saying it failed to adequately protect workers amid the coronavirus crisis.”

Of course, they were running interference for the Democrats but for the Times that was pretty honest. Even the Washington Post admitted the Democrats were responsible for aid not getting to Americans. They wrote, “Democrats block key vote on $2 trillion coronavirus bill as Senate floor erupts with partisan anger.”’

Have no fear liberals just a few hours later the New York Times came riding in on a white horse to save the Democrats and blamed it on McConnell.
Why? All they did was parrot what Senator Chuck Schumer was saying on his social media account since Sunday.
Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky failed to do his job this weekend. As the economy spiraled downward, Mr. McConnell, the Senate majority leader, said he would produce a bipartisan bailout bill authorizing an infusion of desperately needed aid.
Instead, Mr. McConnell emerged on Sunday evening with a bill that would provide a lot of help for corporate executives and shareholders, and not nearly enough for American workers. It would let the Treasury Department hand out hundreds of billions of dollars to corporations — potentially including businesses owned by President Trump — without requiring a binding commitment to preserve jobs and wages. And the bailouts could remain secret for six months.
In other words, McConnell wouldn’t cave to let Democrats highlight election year narratives.
It’s time the Democrats for once put the country first and tell their media lackeys to fall in line.
