On Thursday, all three network morning shows offered news briefs on the resignation, however, all forgot to note that Dixon was a Democrat.
On NBC's Today, co-host Ann Curry mentioned: "Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon announced her resignation on Wednesday after she was convicted of embezzlement. She also agreed to plead guilty to perjury in a deal reached with prosecutors."
On ABC's Good Morning America, co-host Juju Chang explained: "Baltimore's mayor is resigning as part of a plea deal. Prosecutors say Sheila Dixon failed to disclose thousands of dollars in gifts from an ex-boyfriend who got tax breaks from the city. She was also convicted of stealing gift cards to donated to the needy."
Similarly, CBS Early Show co-host Russ Mitchell also failed to revealed Dixon's party affiliation: "Baltimore, Maryland Mayor Sheila Dixon announced her registrat - or resignation rather, after pleading guilty to perjury. Under a plea bargain, Dixon will receive probation at her sentencing in February. In a separate case last month, Dixon was convicted on a misdemeanor charge of stealing gift cards intended for needy families."
