Nets Ignore Cop Killings, But Highlight Criminal Actions of Other Officers

September 17th, 2018 9:14 PM

Over the weekend into Monday morning, Fox and Friends took the time to inform viewers of the two latest police officers murdered while doing their duty and the fact that the killings place the total number of police officers killed on duty in 2018 just above the entire number for 2017.

CNN, MSNBC, and the three broadcast networks not only ignored the attacks on the police officers, they all found time to report stories about other members of law enforcement who recently engaged in criminal activity -- one cop in Dallas who shot her neighbor a week ago when she accidentally entered the wrong apartment, and the case of a Border Patrol agent in Texas arrested for a string of serial killings.

Fox and Friends Saturday informed viewers of the case of Fort Worth police officer Garrett Hull, who was murdered while chasing robbery suspects. On Monday morning, Fox and Friends covered the case of Robert Kunze, who was killed while trying to disarm a suspect in Sedgwick County, Kansas, near Wichita.

The show also spent time discussing the fact that the 36 police officers killed in 2018 has already surpassed the 35 killed in all of 2017.

Between Saturday morning and Monday evening, all five networks that ignored the cop killings did make time for both the Dallas police shooting case and the Border Patrol agent who was arrested for murder.
