Odd how you discover this after not caring over the last 8 years. https://t.co/ZJWACMcKc9

With nothing better to do, it‚Äôs nice that CNN has plenty of time to hold the White House accountable for stuff like this:

Aside from the fact that ‚ÄĒ as even CNN acknowledges in its expos√© ‚ÄĒ ‚Äúthe disparity is primarily due to more women filling lower-ranking jobs,‚ÄĚ we‚Äôve gotta wonder: why is this suddenly news?
Lol, the media waited for a Republican to be in the White House to start becoming curious https://t.co/EmStEPvlZp

Ahhh. There it is.
What did the WH pay women under Obama?

To be fair‚Ä¶this was the case when President Obama was in office as well.

Yeah but that was then, you know?
U'd think they'd learn frm 8yrs of @CNN rprtng same sexist payscale in Obama WH/HillaryClinton cmpgn. O-that's right u didn't report it then

CNN‚Äôs Jake Tapper responded to this post with a link to a 2014 CNN piece on the White House‚Äôs gender wage gap:

Fair enough, sir. Here‚Äôs the thing, though: That CNN piece is much more deliberate about offering explanations for the disparity and point out that while Obama‚Äôs White House still had work to do, they were at least moving ‚Äúin the right direction.‚ÄĚ The report and piece today did not afford the Trump White House that luxury.
It‚Äôs almost as if CNN‚Äôs bias problem hasn‚Äôt gone away.
