As we told you earlier, Joe Biden recalling a time he worked with segregationist senators to get things done might have caught CNN by surprise, but that wasn’t the case for many others.
The two segregationists Biden mentioned were both Democrats, but you might not have known that if you were watching MSNBC at a particular time today:

Amazing, isn’t it?
When did MSNBC start worrying about the truth?

Do the media’s “mistakes” like that ever go the other way?
