A new term...relevant in the light of the volume two sided Journalists
In 22 stories following the John Corzine scandal in 2011, he was only labelled a Democrat once (1 out of 22). In 2008, jailbird Kwame Kilpatrick was only identified as a Democrat twice in 40 network stories. Compare that to Mark Sanford: In the 24 hours after that scandal broke, all three networks had already identified him as a Republican. It took them 5 days to identify Jackson as a Democrat.
