Sen. Dianne Feinstein
In yet another case of double standards, the media has all but ignored a scandal surrounding longtime Democrat Senator from California, Dianne Feinstein. New reports are revealing that Feinstein had unknowingly let a Chinese spy infiltrate her office, working for her as her personal driver for twenty years. But there hasn’t been one mention on television of the story from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS or NBC, despite the media’s supposed “concern” over foreign nationals hacking our democracy.
In the wake of the Las Vegas mass shooting a few days ago, liberals all across the country and in the media had begun to push for greater gun control. On Wednesday, Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein announced a bill to ban the so-called “bump-stocks” that allowed the shooter to use his semi-automatic rifle as one that was fully automatic. And in looking back at her past attempts at gun control, CBS Evening News whined about her previous assault weapons ban getting sunk in Congress.
On Monday night, ABC News continued to report on the impending release of a report on the CIA’s post-9/11 interrogation methods as though partisanship had no role when, in fact, Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee are the very reason it was compiled and will be released.
Following a morning in which ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today made no mention of the political reasoning, ABC kept the streak going on World News Tonight with David Muir with another report from ABC News chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz.
Those blue meanies over in conservative talk radio, "progressive talker" Ed Schultz opined yesterday. There they go again, Schultz sighed, making a fuss for hardly any reason over possible reimposition of the so-called "Fairness Doctrine."
Here's what Schultz had to say (click here for audio) --
It's been interesting and I have listened to it more in the last couple of days than I have in a long, long time and that is the right-wing talkers of America and how they're ginning up this story about the Fairness Doctrine. So I'm going to be a little bit selfish here today about our industry because now there seems to be an attack on the reason whywas elected is because the liberal media and the bias in the media has taken him to the doorstep of the White House and now they're attacking conservative talk radio. My Lord, these people are just, they are relentless when it comes to fear-mongering. You know what, I should be the one sitting here just pounding the drums for the Fairness Doctrine, the way that we have been able to be successful in recent years and stay afloat when we weren't given 90 days. I mean, if they were to put in the Fairness Doctrine, who do you think would benefit? I would make more money. Let me just be right up front about that. I'm not sure it's the right thing to do. I've never paid much attention to it.
