Media Fail: Reports Say Brown Win In MA Cost Dems Their Majority (It Didn't)


Here are some of the offenders:

-A Philadelphia Metro newspaper headline on Thursday asked: "How will Dems recover after losing majority?"

- CNN reported: 'Brown's election tips Senate balance of power to GOP' (video here)

-An early lede (since changed) on this New York Times story read: "Senate Democrats prepared to meet on Wednesday to consider the fate of the bill now that Scott Brown's Senate win has cost them their razor-thin advantage."

-Twitter was buzzing that local NBC news in NY was reporting Democrats lost their majority in the Senate Tuesday night.
