Nice Try MSNBC – Network shows Democrats with more Members Lead in House of Representatives

The Democratic Party will see several new members in the House and the U.S. Senate in 2013, but the Republicans will still command a 233 to 200-member majority in the House. MSNBC’s graphics producers unfortunately confused the two and gave Democrats the honor of holding a 233-member majority in the House. Witt, for her part, correctly noted which party held a majority in the House.

Mistakes happen, but given the cable news network’s editorial bent, it is hard not to see a little willful self-deception in the graphic they aired. Or, perhaps, a few producers are still recovering from a particularly jolly holiday season.
