Sometimes, pulling an allegedly corrupt Democrat over the finish line isn’t the most pleasant journalistic task. That’s the feeling one gets from reading the grumbling support (?) the New Jersey Star-Ledger offered to Democrat Robert Menendez on Sunday. The newspaper managed this not-exactly-ringing endorsement: “Choke it down, and vote for Menendez.”
The metaphors don't get any better (or worse) than this: A van carrying Hillary Clinton, fresh from throwing her #MeToo sisters under the bus this weekend, crashed into a parking garage pillar on the way to a New Jersey campaign fundraiser Tuesday for beleaguered Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez. At her side was Huma Abedin, who is divorcing convicted serial sexter and underage girl stalker ex-Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner.
Democrats in the 2018 midterms are enduring controversy and scandal. But you wouldn’t know it from the liberal media’s lack of interest. MRC Research Director Rich Noyes appeared on Fox and Friends, Wednesday, to hammer the networks for ignoring scandals involving liberals. For instance, according to a police report, Beto O’Rourke in his 20s attempted to flee a DUI accident: “CBS interviewed Beto O'Rourke on October 5th. Didn't bring it up. NBC flew their anchor down to Houston on October 8th. He did a big profile piece. Didn't mention it.”
As the midterms fast approach, there are a bunch of Democrats who find themselves embroiled in scandals and controversies. But if you only got your news from the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks, you’ve probably never heard about them. From Texas Senate Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke lying about his DUI arrest to DNC chair Keith Ellison being accused of domestic violence, the following is a list of Democratic controversies that the nets are keeping their audiences (for the most part) in the dark about:
Este intercambio entre el presentador Félix de Bedout y el senador Robert Menéndez (D-NJ) sobre la nominación del juez Brett Kavanaugh al Tribunal Supremo de los Estados Unidos transmitido en el semanario político Al Punto de Univisión, representa lo que tiene que cambiar en la división de noticias de Univisión si piensa hacer un esfuerzo genuino por alcanzar a todos los hispanos de Estados Unidos.
The exchange between anchor Félix de Bedout and U.S. Senator Robert Menéndez on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, aired on a recent episode of Unvision's public affairs show Al Punto, is emblematic of what must change at Univision’s news division if there is to be an honest effort to engage U.S. Hispanics from all walks of life.
In a bipartisan letter sent to New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez on Thursday, the Senate Ethics Committee issued a scathing admonishment against him for “knowingly and repeatedly accept[ing] gifts of significant value” and “fail[ing] to publicly disclose certain gifts as required by Senate Rule and federal law.” As often occurred during Menendez’s bribery trial last year, to which Thursday’s admonishment was related, the major three network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo ignored it.
The corruption saga of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez (N.J.) appeared to have come to an end after federal prosecutors announced on Wednesday that they would not be seeking a retrial following the mistrial back in November. And while the major three network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) sparsely covered the case during their morning and evening newscasts as the trial was proceeding, their coverage of the Justice Department’s decision was just as lackluster.
The big three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) could finally breathe a sigh of relief on Thursday after the corruption trial against Democratic Senator Bob Menendez ended (at least for now) with a mistrial. Since the trial began 71 days ago, the network evening newscasts did everything in their power not to report it, effectively hiding it from their viewers. But Thursday evening saw all three of them find time to highlight Menendez’s good fortune.
While NBC News has so far refused to cover the corruption trial of Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, on Thursday, the Today show found plenty of time to laugh at President Trump for taking a sip of water during a White House address on Wednesday. The broadcast devoted two separate segments, totaling 2 minutes 38 seconds, to the President being mocked for his clumsy effort to stay hydrated.
Wednesday marked the continuation of the near total blackout on the corruption trial of Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez by the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). While none of the networks covered the trial, which was in the middle of jury deliberations, CBS Evening News thought it was a priority to run a 44-second news brief mocking President Trump for drinking from a bottle of water while in the middle of a long speech.
