The left-wing Web site Media Matters for America is disturbed that a CNN analyst “misidentified” Sen. Joe Lieberman as a Democrat.

On the Tuesday edition of CNN International’s “Your World Today,” senior political analyst Bill Schneider discussed Lieberman’s recent endorsement of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

“Of course, Joe Lieberman is a Democrat who has voted very often with Republicans, especially on the Iraq war,” Schneider declared.

In fact, Lieberman lost the 2006 Democratic primary but won re-election as an independent.

The Web site states: “As Media Matters for America has repeatedly noted, on January 12, Congressional Quarterly reported that ‘Lieberman has asked to be called an Independent Democrat,’ adding that ‘if the compound modifier that the senator prefers was not going to take hold, then Lieberman’s second choice is to be described as an Independent,’ rather than as a ‘Democrat.’”

On the show, Schneider also misidentified McCain before correcting himself, saying:

“McCain is a Democrat — is a Republican who has in the past had appeal to Democrats.”
