Bias by Omission
The left is up in arms because the Republican-controlled Wisconsin legislature is actually passing bills during their lame-duck session and some of them pertain to the offices of governor and attorney general. According to Democrats and their lapdog liberal media, the elected GOP representatives were not listening to the will of the people and were staging a “legislative coup”. Or, at least that’s what ABC and NBC wanted their viewers to believe during their Tuesday evening broadcasts.
Tuesday, a new report revealed that most people who reside in the U.S. illegally or on green cards are receiving government benefits. The study, utilizing the latest Census Bureau data from 2014, found that 63% of non-citizen households in America reported being on welfare. While the media has loudly called the notion that illegal immigrants receive government benefits a “myth,” the facts aren’t on their side.
When President Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris climate accord the liberal media had a global warming sized meltdown. But for three weeks now, the people of Paris have shown they’re opposed to policies born from the accord. They’ve been rioting to protest a carbon tax on fuel proposed by President Emmanuel Macron. During their Monday reports about the now deadly riots, ABC and NBC refused to mention the carbon tax, preferring to mislead viewers by calling it a simple fuel tax.
The New York Times was shocked, shocked, to find “a startling breach of decorum and of the norms” by a member of President Trump’s cabinet. Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Coral Davenport covered a heated social media spat between far-left Congressman Raul Grijalva and Ryan Zinke, Trump’s Secretary of the Interior: “Zinke’s Insults At Lawmaker Rattle Capitol.” It took chutzpah on the paper’s part to complain about Zinke’s insulting tweet about Rep. Grijalva's drinking, given the paper’s support of Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee smearing Brett Kavanaugh on drinking during his confirmation hearings a couple of months ago.
Years have passed but at long last, Univision appears eager to cover an email scandal that reverberates at the highest levels of government. And all it took was for there to be a Trump attached to it. On Univision's weekly public affairs show, Al Punto, Republican analyst Adolfo Franco does a fine job of redirecting any attempt to spin the Clinton e-mail scandal as being only about the use of personal -mails in the conduct of official government business.
The New York Times managed an impressive feat, covering -- online only -- the latest controversy involving anti-Trump porn lawyer Michael Avenatti – without making a single mention of Brett Kavanaugh, whose Supreme Court nomination Avenatti tried to bring down by pushing forward the absolutely bizarre accusations of Julie Swetnick. Perhaps that's because the paper's reporters have basically promised a hit-piece book on the new Justice and want to preserve the integrity of its anti-Kavanaugh crusade?
On Thursday, California Democratic Party chairman Eric Bauman resigned the position after allegations of sexual misconduct arose last week. The accusations were serious, with the state party vice chairman leading the charge for Bauman’s outer. But from when the story first broke last Saturday to Bauman’s resignation, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) couldn’t be bothered to report any of it during their morning or evening news programs.
When former president Barack Obama starts bragging about his record as president, sounding remarkably egotistical, the networks seem to ignore it. ''That whole suddenly America's the biggest oil producer -- that was me, people,'' Obama boasted. ''Have you checked where your stocks were when I came to office'' and where they were when he left? ''What are you complaining about? Just say thank you, please.''
Liberal journalists are all for sanctuary cities, flying in the face of federal immigration laws and federal jurisdiction on the matter. But when the small town of Republic, Washington took a stand against their state’s infringement on constitutional gun rights, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were nowhere to be seen.
It has not been a good November for the so-called “creepy porn lawyer” and 2020 Democratic hopeful Michael Avenatti. First he was arrested for a domestic violence charge from a former girlfriend, then he had a restraining order filed against him from the same person. On Wednesday, his claim to fame porn star Stormy Daniels, had apparently cut ties with him and called him out for filing law suits against her wishes. Despite this stunning turn of events, CBS and ABC couldn’t be bothered to mention it.
The liberal media have been desperately trying to make the Mississippi Senate runoff a fight between a “moderate” Democrat in Mike Espy and raging racist in Cindy Hyde-Smith. First, they tried to claim she said she would love to be a witness to a lynching, then, among other things, they lied and claimed she sent her daughter to a segregated school. Now, according to CNN on Tuesday, Trump saying Espy was too “far-left” to “fit in” with Mississippi was a racist dog whistle and evidence of Hyde-Smith’s true self.
A few days after a failed violent assault by a hoard of Central American migrants tried to invade the U.S. on Sunday, over 100 of them grew frustrated and boarded planes for their home countries on Tuesday. And after being appalled by President Trump’s defense of Border Patrol’s use of mere tear gas to repel the attack, ABC and NBC couldn’t be bothered that evening to mention the migrants packing up and leaving plus how Tijuana locals were happy to see them go.
