The Communications Workers of America, which includes a prominent journalism union, is taking credit for Sen. Harry Reid’s use of the nuclear option. That option is a Senate rule which prevents the GOP from blocking presidential nominees. CWA president Larry Cohen said that his group was “all over this ” and that “[t]his is finally a significant step,” according to The Huffington Post. CWA even issued a press release commending Reid.
