CBS and NBC Censor Ethics Probe of Raunchy Democratic ‘Rising Star’

Listen to the Article!

The liberal media love to document the fall of political rising stars; particularly those that involve sex scandals and Republicans. One of those prerequisites was not met Thursday evening, when CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News chose not to inform their viewers that Democratic “rising star”, Congresswoman Katie Hill (CA) was facing a Congressional Ethics Committee probe for having an affair with a female staffer. The only broadcast network to mention the scandal that evening was ABC.

And next tonight, the California congresswoman under fire, a first-term representative considered a rising star now facing a House ethics investigation, accused of a sexual relationship with a member of her own staff. All of this coming during a bitter divorce now breaking into the public eye,” began World News Tonight anchor David Muir. The tone in his voice almost seemed as though he felt remorse for Hill.

The report by ABC correspondent Linsey Davis covered many of the bases for why the Ethics Committee was looking into the case:

DAVIS: But tonight, Katie Hill is facing some tough questions of her own. The House Ethics Committee is investigating allegations that the congresswoman "Engaged in a sexual relationship with an individual on her congressional staff," her legislative affairs director Graham Kelly. A violation of House rules.

In a letter to constituents, Hill calls the allegations "False." But Hill, who is the first openly bisexual member of Congress, admits she did engage in a consensual relationship with someone else, a woman on her campaign staff. Hill is now apologizing for that, acknowledging that it was" inappropriate."

“The couple now in the middle of a nasty divorce. Hill accuses her husband of leaking nude pictures of her and the campaign staffer, saying he's ‘Determined to try to humiliate me,’” Davis added. She also noted Hill’s point that her husband may have committed a crime by sharing the raunchy photos of her.

 

 

There were a few background details about Hill’s so-called “throuple” relationship that ABC decided to skip over.

According to reporting by the British Daily Mail [Use caution when visiting that link. There’s adult content.], photos exist of Hill sporting what the outlet suggested was a “Nazi-era tattoo” of an iron cross. There’s also a photo of Hill in the nude brushing the hair of her campaign staffer. And that wasn’t the raunchiest part of it. For instance, her husband was also in on it (click “expand”):

Desjardins began a relationship with Hill and Heslep shortly after she started working for Hill in 2017, before the three-way affair broke down this summer when Hill told both her husband and her lover that she wanted to focus on her work.

Hill's wild lifestyle has been laid bare in a cache of texts and intimate photographs obtained by DailyMail.com, as sources revealed Hill and Heslep also posted her naked photos online under a thread called 'WouldYouF**kMyWife'.

Meanwhile, last year when Republican “rising star,” former-Missouri Governor Eric Greitens was wrapped up in his own sex scandal, CBS and NBC made sure to tell their viewers about it and which political party he was a part of.

He was considered a rising star in the Republican Party. Greitens was hit by scandals stemming from an extramarital affair, alleged blackmail, and claims of campaign finance violations,” proclaimed CBS’s Norah O’Donnell when she co-anchored This Morning. She’s now hemorrhaging ratings as the anchor of Evening News.

All three broadcast networks also failed to give airtime to the other Ethics Committee probe into Guam delegate Michael F. Q. San Nicolas for having sex with a staffer and improper use of campaign funds.

Congresswoman Hill says that she has alerted the Capitol Police, though she tells her constituents distributing intimate photos with the intent to publish them is a crime. Meanwhile, the investigation into her own alleged misconduct is just beginning, David.

MUIR: All right, Linsey Davis, thank you.
