Censoring the News
News that is censored by media outlets because it doesn't fit their agenda.
Yesterday, we reported on the massive amount of coverage that the broadcast network evening newscasts devoted to the Trump administration in 2017, nearly all of it (90%) negative. While topics such as the Russia investigation and other controversies were given extremely heavy coverage — more than 43 hours of coverage on just these three newscasts — the networks were nearly silent when it came to a number of Trump administration accomplishments. This article documents some key examples.
According to a New York Times Magazine writer, on Wednesday high-ranking Democratic Congressman James Clyburn compared Rep. John Conyers’ female accusers to child-killer Susan Smith in an effort to dismiss the harassment allegations made against his colleague. So far none of the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks have covered the disgusting charge on any of their evening or morning shows.
As you know by now, President Trump referred to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as "Pocahontas" at a White House event honoring the legendary Navajo Code Talkers. But Univision's national newscast, like most media, left the most important part out of their coverage of the latest brouhaha related to the nickname the President uses to refer to his likely 2020 Democrat opponent.
The Joe Biden 2020 tease tour is in full swing. On Monday’s Today show, the former Vice President got well over of 20 minutes of interview time as the hosts pushed him to run for President and attack Donald Trump. However, Biden has an entire career full of stumbles, yet is still considered a serious politician, where Donald Trump, who actually won the presidency, is ridiculed almost daily by the press.
Finally! Tea Party groups that were targeted by Barack Obama’s IRS have vindication. But you wouldn’t know it, if you got your news from the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks. While the liberal Washington Post (page A3) and New York Times (page A18) covered the momentous decision in their Friday print editions, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks have yet to mention the settlement. Sadly, it’s not surprising as the networks haven’t covered the IRS-Tea Party scandal in almost three years.
The undercover FBI informant who has detailed evidence in the Clinton/Uranium/Russia scandal and who was gagged by the Obama administration, is now allowed to testify before Congress. This crucial development in the case comes on the heels of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley calling for a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal. But you wouldn’t know any of these facts if you got your news from the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks.
The media want to ignore Hillary Clinton and the Russian uranium deal because “it defies what they want to talk about,” according to MRC’s Vice President for Business and Culture Dan Gainor.
Bribery, bullying of an informant and now a Russian spy ring: The Clinton/Russia/Uranium scandal has all the ingredients of a juicy spy thriller, but so far the Big Three (ABC, NBC, CBS) networks have shied away from the latest developments in the case. On Sunday night, The Hill’s John Solomon and Alison Spann reported the newest wrinkle: “A female Russian spy posing as an American accountant....used a false identity to burrow her way into the employ of a major Democratic donor in hopes of gaining intelligence on Hillary Clinton’s department.”
On Thursday, MSNBC’s Brian Williams finally mentioned the words “Russia,” “uranium” and “Clinton” in the same segment BUT it was only to dismiss President Donald Trump’s criticism of the media’s failure to cover this week’s new revelations in the growing scandal.
On Wednesday, The Hill reported that a key FBI informant involved in the investigation of the Clinton/Russia/Uranium scandal was threatened by the Obama administration and warned not to publicly disclose details. Also, at a Senate hearing that same day, Attorney General Jeff Sessions promised that the Justice Department would take “appropriate action” in response to the new information.So how much time have the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks devoted to the growing story this week? As of Thursday morning, a grand total of ZERO seconds.
By any measure, the summer of 2017 has been an unusually rocky one for the Catholic Church.
Chalk up another doozy for fake news at Univision. It turns out that while anchor Jorge Ramos was out visiting with Klansmen to hype his ‘Hate Rising’ narrative in advance of last year’s election, the nation’s historic premier hate group was actually in the midst of a massive collapse in membership.
