Norah O’Donnell Called Out Trump’s Racist Tweets In Her CBS Evening News Debut
While many major news organizations have
stuck to euphemisms like “racially charged” (ABC News) or “inflammatory” (NBC News), and CBS itself has avoided the term in past coverage, O’Donnell called the tweets “racist” in the first few seconds of her broadcast. The chyron clearly said, “Congresswomen respond to racist tweets.” And, O’Donnell called out senior Republican lawmakers for being silent on the issue. “Republican leadership in Congress, well
 they’ve been noticeably silent,” she said.
