She's clearly not even trying anymore. Today on her MSNBC program, Andrea Mitchell used words that clearly were meant to paint the Republican Party as retrograde. After insisting that President George H.W. Bush had supported Planned Parenthood as a congressman decades earlier, she posed the question “So how has the Republican Party devolved to the point where we are now re-litigating all of this?”
The use of the word "devolved" in this context would be perfectly natural coming from the spokeswoman for a liberal interest group or a partisan Democrat, but is unfitting and inappropriate from an ostensibly objective journalist.
