Irresponsible and innacurate reporting?

Irresponsible and innacurate reporting?

By Richard Kuper

The Op Ed Page

The new Senate will be 49 Democrats and 49 Republicans and 2 Independents. No party is the majority. And even if the 2 Independents (one being Lieberman who got back into congress thanks to the Republicans who voted for him) may tend to side more often with the Democrats, they are not Democrats, they are Independents. So, technically, all committees must be co-headed, and there is no such thing in the next Senate as a Majority and Minority leader, just co-leaders.

So why is the press saying the Democrats are now the majority party in the Senate? It's just not accurate.
