Senate makes a shutdown deal: Now what?

(CNN) - Senate leaders have reached a short-term, bipartisan deal to end the partial government shutdown and avoid a possible U.S. default on the debt.

The deal still must be approved by the Senate and the House and then signed by President Barack Obama.

Here's a look at how the deal may play out in the coming hours. Of course, this is just a scenario. Whether the deal will be approved in both chambers is, at the moment, anyone's guess

    Now what? Now the GOP/Teatrolls ramp up their "liberal media bias" rhetoric, pushing the theory that the "liberal media" lied and hid the GOP/Teatrolls message, because they just can't fathom why anyone who listens to them wouldn't agree with what they're saying. Then, CNN and the rest of the MSM, properly chastised and afraid of the GOP/Teatrolls' refusing to go on their shows, etc., promptly forgets to report that the SHUTDOWN CAUSED BY THE GOP/TEATROLLS COST $24B AND REDUCED PROJECTED ECONOMIC GROWTH BY 0.6%, CAUSING S&P TO REVISE 4TH QUARTER PROJECTIONS FROM 3% GROWTH DOWN TO 2% GROWTH. But hey, that is PRECISELY the result the GOP/Teatrolls wanted. They will now proceed to blame the bad economy on Obama and the MSM, fearful of getting more angry reprimands and accusations of "bias" from the GOP/Teatrolls, will dutifully ignore the GOP/Teatrolls' deliberate contribution to slowing the recovery.

    CNN asks "Now What"?

    I suggest "truth in reporting" to commence immediately.

    The media has had its little fun and nearly allowed the United States government to crash beyond the point of no return with its false narratives and Republican talking point mantra.

    And so now I ask ... can the media collectively act like adults and actually report the truth behind the scenes instead of following the little round Brothers-Koch ball of Republican lies?
