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

The Hill was on it:

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

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.

"Let's find something about him that makes Republicans look bad."

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.
