When George Washington rain for office, the press told stories about his illegitimate children. Over two centuries later, no credible evidence has been provided to support their reports. But sound evidence that the American press and media are protecting their liberal agendas is revealed in the daily political coverage.
In the past few days, Mainstream Media’s (MSM) ABC, CBS and NBC ignored stories from Washington Post and Los Angeles Times reports of new information on the FBI’s massive investigation into presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s email scandal as well as the severe improprieties of the Clinton Foundation. Reminiscent of their attempts of covering up for liberals such as George McGovern’s illegitimate daughter, John Edwards’ baby from an affair he carried on while married, and the “Bill Clinton serial sexcapades,” the MSM’s playbook calls for desperate measures.
Last week, NBC and CBS failed to report that Hillary’s favorability rating continues to fall with more than have of those polled indicate her credibility is a “serious problem.” Meanwhile, the Media Research Center (MRC), a watchdog organization devoted to fair journalism coverage, has been keeping tabs on the MSM.
“The liberal ‘news media’ tendency to lose interest in the Obama scandals, as well as the Clinton scandals, breeds pessimism, and deserves public contempt,” the MRC reported today. “On Friday, March 13, President Obama traveled to the V.A. hospital in Phoenix, the source of the original scandal on the wait-list fiasco. Only CBS noticed, with a tough Evening Newsreport from Wyatt Andrews on how veterans are still being delayed in their health care. ABC and NBC – with the top two most popular network evening shows – couldn’t be bothered with covering the president. ABC instead highlighted Obama’s jokes from his appearance on their show Jimmy Kimmel Live the night before.”
“Meanwhile, the IRS scandal keeps bubbling along. House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz has issued more subpoenas for documents and the IRS watchdog charged with investigating Lois Lerner’s missing e-mails said he’s now looking into ‘potential criminal activity.’ But the networks have routinely ignored every new development for months now, so they ignored these as well.”
The Washington Post article reports that up to 147 FBI agents are involved in the investigation. Reporter Robert O’Harrow revealed Clinton said it was “frustrating” that she could not use her unsecured Blackberry device when she was in “her seventh-floor suite of offices, a secure space known as Mahogany Row.” The LA Times reporter Del Quentin Wilber wrote that the investigation “will continue to dog Clinton’s presidential campaign through most, if not all, of the remaining presidential primaries.”
MRC reported that the three major networks devoted 15 minutes and 45 seconds to a grocery store tabloid article against GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz. The National Enquirer alleged he had extramarital affairs. MRC did give credit to NBC Nightly News’ Hallie Jackson’s report, indicating, “Two women who have been subject to speculation also strongly denying any truth to the story — one, a Trump spokesperson and former Cruz ally, tweeting, ‘the story is 100% false.’ The tabloid provided no evidence to back up its claims. The only person quoted: Roger Stone, a controversial former Trump adviser who left the campaign last year, telling NBC he’s not the source of the story.”
