星期日, 有线电视新闻网 已发布 an analysis titled “加快步伐: 支出法案将如何改变你的生活。” 文章宣传十 “大胆的想法” 包括在法案中，并尽可能声称该法案可以 “feed every hungry child” in America and “bring kids out of poverty.”
This positive analysis of the Democratic legislation comes days after Pelosi’s complaint that the media could “do a better job of selling” the trillion dollar legislation. 十月. 12, after reporters noted a poll that only 10 percent of Americans knew exactly what was in the bill, 佩洛西 责备 the low number on journalists.
“Well I think you all could do a better job of selling it, to be very frank with you,” Pelosi responded, saying the media has not done justice to the list of items in the bill, such as the family medical leave provision. “Every time I come here, I go through the list … It is hard to break through when you have such a comprehensive package.”
CNN continued their promotion of the bill. During CNN’s “新的一天” segment on Monday, host John Berman emphasized, “This package could lead to changes, major changes, for seniors, new parents, 孩子们, students.”
CNN political commentator Errol Louis went as far as to compared the 重建得更好 plan to FDR’s New Deal.
“There’s a lot resting on this this done, imagine dental and vision for seniors forever—or, at least for a few years and then it becomes forever. Imagine help for kids going to community college. 要么, at the other end of the scale, pre-kindergarten learning for people; the child tax credit. This is big, 大, 大, stuff. It’s our own version of the New Deal,” 他说.
Berman went on to question how the media was framing this legislation.
“How much of this is about the framing, 虽然? It’s interesting. You talk about what your worried will not be in it. And Errol, I’ve been reading members of Congress who say, we’ve got to start talking about what people will be getting that they haven’t been. Where there’s zero now, there will be $ 1.7 trillion worth,” Berman said.
Louis continued, “The reality is that if you’re moving toward cutting child poverty in half, that is a monumental achievement that people have dreamt of for generations. And to go further down that road, whether it’s child care or other enhancements, that’s a big, big deal!”
