    I got out of this that this is being discussed.

    That's what Greg reported.

    I did not see that she said Reid had agreed to it.

    You don't like that she is reporting that it is being discussed?

      You are ok with Joan labeling the bargaining offer of Republican Senator Mitch McConnell the "Reid-McConnell Proposal" even though there is not now and may well never be a "Reid-McConnell Proposal"?

      Because what that does is put Harry Reid's name to something he didn't author and that doesn't in fact exist.

      Would I have complained if she'd not dragged Harry Reid in and only reported on the "McConnell Proposal" like Greg Sargent? No. Because Greg Sargent's report was accurate and made clear what was fact and what was opinion.

      So no, I don't object that Joan is reporting on discussions between Reid and McConnell. I object because she's reporting things that don't actually exist as if they did.
