Debbie Wasserman Schultz
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews spent over two and a half times more on trumpeting the need for gun control and chastising gun owners, the National Rifle Association, and ordinary Americans over the issue than covering the deadly Florida school shooting, and its victims. All told, Matthews spent 38 minutes and 46 seconds on segments or parts of ones discussing the issue with guests but only 14 minutes and 48 seconds on the actual shooting.
Since Imran Awan's arrest in late July, the Daily Caller has published roughly two dozen follow-up stories on various aspects of the scandal involving the longtime rogue Democrat IT staffer and his inexplicably enriched family members. The Associated Press and the New York Times have, from all appearances, published nothing since July 28.
Thursday was a terrible day for the Democratic Party as they were rocked by two major scandals. First, Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal wrote on Facebook that she wanted President Trump assassinated. Second, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s former IT staffer, Imran Awan was indicted on bank fraud among other charges. Again, it was a damaging day for the Dems but you wouldn’t know it from watching the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) who ignored all of it.
Here is a radical proposition: The public has a right to know the immigration status and history of foreign criminal suspects. Their entrance and employment sponsorship records should not be treated like classified government secrets -- especially if the public's tax dollars subsidized their salaries. In March, I contacted the D.C. offices of House Congressional Democrats Joaquin Castro of Texas, Sander Levin of Michigan, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Greg Meeks of New York and Ted Deutch of Florida.
Mark Levin blasted the news media for going bonkers over Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer and ignoring more important stories about Fusion GPS, Obama's unlawful surveillance activities, and the Clintons' Russian ties.
On Thursday, The Hill reporter Joe Concha put the media on notice. Speaking about the news that a staffer for Florida Congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz had been arrested trying to flee the country, he blasted the liberal media for ignoring the scandal.
The President of the United States on Thursday tweeted an article containing Media Research Center data on how the press isn’t interested in a scandal engulfing a top Democrat. NewsBusters’s Curtis Houck wrote on Tuesday that ABC, CBS and NBC skipped the arrest of Imran Awan.
Just before noon, the Associated Press ended almost 18 hours of silence on the arrest of IT staffer Imran Awan yesterday as he was attempting to leave the country. The report spun the news in the most favorable way it could for beleaguered Democrats, making Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz look like the victim as it headlined her spokesman's claim that she fired Awan Tuesday after learning of his arrest.
ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today continued on Wednesday morning the liberal media’s attempts to help Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fl.) cover up the scandal involving now-fired I.T. staffer Imran Awan after his arrested Monday when he tried to flee the country.
Late Tuesday afternoon, it was announced that Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fl.) had fired shady I.T. staffer Imran Awan after being arrested trying to flee the country amid a criminal investigation. And yet the “big three” networks ignored this piece of breaking news.
Donna Brazile -- interim chair of the Democratic National Committee – gave a lecture on Monday at Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia, where she sharply criticized the Cable News Network for not letting her defend herself against incriminating emails released online and instead firing her after 14 years as a political commentator.
In addition, she told the audience at the small women's school that she never got on Hillary Clinton's campaign airplane or prepped the candidate for any of the debates. She also derided WikiLeaks, which leaked the “damning emails,” by repeatedly calling the organization “WikiLies.”
Major news broke Tuesday regarding high ranking Democratic National Committee personnel losing their jobs, but you would never know it if you watched NBC Nightly News. Even though ABC and CBS spent minimal time on the story, NBC was the only network in the “big three” to avoid the topic all together. “And there is one more developing headline in the race for president before we move on here, and this one spells trouble for the Democrats tonight,” hyped ABC anchor David Muir on World News Tonight.
