CNN's Brian Stelter hosts segment calling for reporters to cover Republicans differently than Democrats
L.A. Times columnist claimed Republicans don’t care if the government works well.
CNN’s Brian Stelter invited Los Angeles Times columnist Jackie Calmes on his weekly media program on Sunday to declare that journalists need to stop covering the country's two political parties equally because the modern Republicans don't "really care if government works well."
"I want to dive right into your argument about what both-siderism is and why it’s failing the public,"Stelter said of Calmes, whose column on the subject won praise from liberal journalists. "Is it that we're treating Democrats and Republicans equally and ignoring GOP radicalism, is that the heart of the problem?"

Calmes said that was "in a sense" correct.
