Speaking on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” aired on Sunday, Sen Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said he is worried about all of the reporting the media gives to “the three that speak out all the time” and “about the perception that people have that the Democratic Party has gone completely off the rails.”
“I’m worried about you all reporting, giving all the ink and all the press to the three that speak out all the time,” stated Sen. Manchin. “The House freshmen. And what, there’s maybe seven of them? And when you look at the people who basically changed the House of Democrats, are all new Democrats, or blue dog, moderate? They get no press. They get nothing.”
Manchin was asked by Bob Cusack, Editor-in-Chief of “The Hill” “Are you worried about the direction of your party? Many say the Democratic Party has moved left.”
“I’m worried about you all reporting, giving all the ink and all the press to the three that speak out all the time—” stated Sen. Manchin.
“Three House freshmen,” Cusack said.
