"Water-bottle Gate"?

What sort of person compares a politician taking a sip of water to a politician abusing his power? Why is it that when someone mentions the name of "Nixon" everyone thinks of Watergate, but when the name "Ted Kennedy" is mentioned no one thinks of the Chappaquiddick? Unlike Nixon, someone actually died because of Ted Kennedy's misconduct. Why is it that when Bill Clinton is mentioned, the (relatively) benign thought is of Monica Lewinsky, rather than the political power abuse of Whitewater?

By comparing Marco Rubio's sip of water to Richard Nixon's abuse of power, CBS has demonstrated a clear and disgusting bias. Some in the media are questioning the insane and inane manner in which others are attacking Rubio. The only thing that is clear to me is the bias of the media.
