To the shock of no one (at least in the NewsBusters newsroom), the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC ignored on Friday morning the stunning revelation that the Clinton Foundation is under FBI investigation for possible crimes while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. FNC’s Fox & Friends was the only cable or network morning show to confirm and cover the story, spending eight minutes and 50 seconds (minus teasers) on the Clinton Foundation.
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.”
RESTON, VA — Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell blasted the media’s censorship in a Monday morning statement of the developing Uranium scandal involving the Clintons and Obama Administration.
Why the collective liberal media yawn on the multi-headed Democratic scandals surfacing everywhere except on their pages and airwaves? It's not that the stories are too far-fetched and thin to interest self-respecting journalists, because they are real, damning and supported by sufficiently credible evidence to warrant serious attention and scrutiny.
CNN briefly ended their network-wide blackout on Wednesday afternoon of the massive Russian uranium story with a 19-second recap of President Trump’s comments moments earlier in the Oval Office about The Hill’s investigation. “The big story is the uranium that was purchased — that was obtained by the Russians during the Obama administration. He says that's one of the big stories — one of the worst stories of the past decade,” CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement today in response to the media blackout of the recent developments in the Clinton-Uranium scandal. On Tuesday, The Hill revealed the FBI had found evidence of a Russian bribery plot before the Obama Administration’s controversial 2010 nuclear deal with Moscow.
On Thursday’s Morning Joe, after days of ignoring The Hill’s latest reporting confirming an extensive racketeering scheme organized by Russian government officials that appeared to directly benefit Bill and Hillary Clinton, the show finally decided to cover the story. However, instead of getting worked up about unethical or possibly illegal Clinton-Russian collusion, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski attacked Trump for tweeting about the new revelations.
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.
New revelations that the FBI uncovered a Russian bribery plot before the Obama administration approved a nuclear deal with Moscow, that involved millions of kickback money to the Clinton Foundation, have been utterly ignored the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening or morning shows, since the story broke early Tuesday. In fact, the network evening shows have only spent only 3 minutes and 1 second on the Clinton Foundation scandal in more than two years.
On Tuesday, The Hill reported new revelations in the scandal surrounding Russia’s obtaining control of American uranium and its payments to The Clinton Foundation. It’s a scandal that the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening shows have gone out of their way to shun, spending only 3 minutes and 1 second on the story in over two years.
The Washington Post is now farming out its liberal hit pieces to outside journalism groups. On the top of page A3 Monday was a story from the liberal Center for Public Integrity slashing Republicans (and conservative Democrats) as hypocrites for voting against the so-called “stimulus” but then sending constituent requests for “stimulus” support. This, by now, is a very tired White House talking point from February, but reporters John Solomon and Aaron Mehta were retreading it anyway:
Rep. Pete Sessions, the firebrand conservative from Texas, has relentlessly assailed the Democratic stimulus efforts as a package of wasteful "trillion-dollar spending sprees" that was "more about stimulating the government and rewarding political allies than growing the economy and creating jobs."
But that didn't stop the Republican lawmaker from seeking stimulus money behind the scenes for the Dallas suburb of Carrollton after the GOP campaign against the 2009 stimulus law quieted down....
When Wes Pruden was the editor of The Washington Times, reporters complained to outside sources about his editing and style choices, sometimes pummeling reporter’s copy.
