Reporting Bob Filner's Sentencing, ABC, CNN, MSNBC Websites All Omit Fact He's a Democrat

By Ken Shepherd

This morning, Bob Filner (D) was sentenced to "90 days home confinement as punishment for three criminal charges connected to the sexual harassment scandal that ended his term as San Diego mayor," according to staffers Monica Garske and R. Stickney, who failed to mention Filner's Democratic Party affiliation in their story.

But Garske and Stickney are not alone among their peers in omitting Filner's party affiliation. Besides -- which linked to the aforementioned NBC San Diego story --, and all similarly left out reference to the California Democrat's party allegiance. and ran an Associated Press story which mentioned Filner's political persuasion in the final paragraph. also omitted the Democratic label from their story, although, curiously, the story was filed under a "Democrats" topic tag (see screen capture below):


You might think that Filner's repeated, egregious, offensive, and unwanted episodes of harassment of female staffers would warrant placement under the topic tag "war on women" -- yes, there is one at -- but as you can see, that's not the case.
