As Twitchy told you yesterday, ABC News chief political analyst tweeted (and eventually deleted) a sexist take on GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik:
GOP Rep. Mark Meadows was among those who came to Stefanik’s defense, calling Dowd’s tweet “reprehensible”:
Elise did a great job laying out the facts. And, not least of all, this comment is reprehensible. https://t.co/Rf6CqbRtmR

Notice anything about that headline? @ComfortablySmug sure did:
Dowd here being referred to as "ex-Bush aide" and not ABC employee https://t.co/c9LwyVHl3H

- 'This is crazy': Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History & Culture alerts everyone about signs of 'whiteness and white culture'
- 'There's a reason for that': Brit Hume explains why former education secretary Arne Duncan didn't provide data to support his argument against opening schools
Isn’t it, though?
Yeah the best way to describe Dowd is as an ex-Bush aide https://t.co/4UDNaoYvMQ

Weird that his employment 15 years ago is headline-worthy but not his current job at @abcnews.

Ex-Bush aide?? Why? He’s currently an employee of ABC, Shriver’s ex-lover, and a lib. All better than your characterization.

Never fails, does it?
The bias is laughable at this point.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t also give a tip of the hat to this tweeter, who noticed The Hill’s, um, oversight when the tweet initially went out several hours ago:
Amazing how it’s “ex-Bush aide” and not “ABC political analyst” https://t.co/IOVprUIjpp

In any event, The Hill done got busted. Again.
