CNN on Tuesday spent over seven minutes hyping Republicans trying to hide their allegedly extreme position when it comes to abortion. Reporter Kyung Lah spotlighted GOP senatorial candidates changing their website now that they have the nomination. But nowhere in the segment was there anything on the extreme stance of Democrats when it comes to abortion.

Host Brianna Keilar parroted the Democratic talking points about radical Republicans: “The Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade has energized voters and made abortion rights a flashpoint in the midterm elections. It’s given Democrats a boost. Now, some Republican candidates who were strongly opposed to abortion are suddenly softening their stance.”

After noting that Arizona senatorial candidate Blake Master has dropped “100 percent pro-life” from his campaign page, Lah investigated other Republican website changes:

Masters’ campaign says he remains 100 percent pro-life. But he’s not the only one retooling. In Michigan’s 7th congressional district, challenger Tom Barrett fundraised in the Republican primary as 100 pro-life, no exceptions. Over the weekend, his website that listed a value section to protect life from conception is now gone. Barrett’s campaign tells CNN, we regularly update the website.

No mention by CNN that Texas senatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke supports abortion up to birth.

No mention by CNN that Pennsylvania senatorial candidate John Fetterman supports abortion up to birth.

No mention by CNN that Georgia Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock voted for the most extreme pro-abortion bill in the history of the Senate.

A follow-up segment with CNN panelists also avoided any hint that the Democrats might be extreme on abortion. But the network should know. On Sunday, State of the Union anchor Dana Bash grilled Democratic senatorial candidate Tim Ryan:

You’re criticizing your Republican opponent for not supporting abortion exceptions. So, I want to ask about your position. What restrictions, if any, do you believe there should be on abortion?
