Because some people may not have known she was a democrat, because NBC actively hid that from their reporting. The media is team over country.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megan_Barry

"...Barry worked in business ethics and corporate responsibility for the multinational telecommunications firm Nortel Networks.[6] From 2003 to 2012, Barry was vice president of ethics and compliance at Premier, Inc., a health-care group purchasing organization.[6] She also worked as principal of Barry & Associates, an independent consulting organization to multinational corporations on issues dealing with business ethics and corporate social responsibility....[6] "

That’s not nearly as ironic as it might appear at first glance. Corporate America is now firmly in the grip of people like Megan Barry. They consider themselves to be the ideal candidates to lecture the rest of us on subjects like “corporate social responsibility” (and be paid for it, too). Nice work if you can get it. For those of us on the outside looking in, this whole little drama is a useful reminder of what dishonest/self-righteous @ssholes those people really are. Bad enough that they dominate the corporate world, but beware even more when they try to slither into the realm of elective office.

One of a few reasons I retired from AT&T early...

Hey, while doing some school budget research for another topic I ran across this...

Shelby County Schools (Memphis)
Schools: 221
Charter Schools: 45
Enrollment: 112,077
Economically Disadvantages Students: 66,238 (59.1%)
English Language Learners: 9,467 (8.4%)

Davidson County Schools (Nashville)
Schools: 163
Charter Schools: 24
Enrollment: 85,123
Economically Disadvantages Students: 45,881 (53.9%)
English Language Learners: 14,989 (17.6%)

Back in the 80s folks in Memphis started rumbling about apparent gang activity. The mayor, council members and police chief would tell us that that wasn't going on, we were worried about nothing... false alarms.

Well, it eventually became very apparent Memphis had a gang problem. After drastic increases in crime statistics the authorities had to admit it -- gangs were here.

Then it was Nashville's turn. They saw increases in crime but said "No gang problem here!"

But you can't keep that hidden forever (kinda like you can't keep nudie mayor pics hidden, either).

Anyway, a comparison of the school stats above supports the parallel path Nashville finds itself on with Memphis.
