Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is out with a new book in which she claims several of her male colleagues made comments about her weight following the birth of her second child. CBS This Morning eagerly jumped on Gillibrand’s story which was filled with numerous quotes from anonymous sources, a fact that CBS didn’t bother to question when promoting the Democrat’s allegations. 

On Thursday, August 28, co-host Gayle King introduced a segment by proclaiming “polls show that Americans have a very low opinion of Congress and this next story is probably not going to help that very much. New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand says fellow legislators made rude and sexist comments to her about her weight.” [See video below.]
