The New York Times did its part for the Hillary Clinton campaign (and President Obama’s legacy) in Thursday’s edition, offering happy talk about lost coal jobs in Kentucky, skipping over some inconvenient facts that would cloud the pro-Democratic narrative, while another story bashing Donald Trump’s tax plan passed up a golden opportunity to revive Clinton’s infamous “dead broke” comment.

Words cannot express how profoundly disturbing it is that the mainstream media refuses to address the Christian genocide currently underway across the Muslim world. Of all the ridiculous and irrelevant topics such outlets give voice to on a nightly basis, apparently the attempted extermination of Christians in the Middle East still remains inconsequential.
Always one of the more egregious liberal pundits in dismissing Clinton scandals, MSNBC’s Joy Reid filled in for Chris Hayes on Wednesday’s All In and sought to imply that since Breitbart News chief executive and now Trump campaign chief executive Steve Bannon helped fund the organization that allowed Peter Schweizer to write Clinton Cash, the book’s claims are not just “false” but reckless.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews had always been a big admirer of now-former Democratic Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, so he was naturally beside himself on Tuesday night as he gave a news brief on Kane being found guilty of nine criminal charges stemming from a series of leaks to a grand jury concerning a legal and political rival.
ABC became the first Big Three network to cover the felony conviction of the Democratic attorney general of Pennsylvania, Kathleen Kane, on the early Wednesday edition of Nightline. Byron Pitts spotlighted the downfall of the "rising star in Pennsylvania's Democratic Party," who went from being endorsed by Bill Clinton to being a "convicted criminal." ABC's morning and evening newscasts still haven't covered the Kane story, nor have their competitors at CBS and NBC.
In a recent interview with CNN senior political correspondent Manu Raju, New Hampshire Governor and Democratic Senate candidate Maggie Hassan repeatedly dodged questions about whether Hillary Clinton was “honest” and refused to vouch for Clinton’s credibility. Despite the embarrassing exchange making news on cable, the broadcast networks of NBC, ABC, and CBS all ignored the story.
After the Rio Olympics’ opening ceremony inundated viewers with climate propaganda, liberal media outlets did more than cover the climate agenda. They carried the torch for it. As if liberal propaganda weren’t seeping into enough of life, the Olympic opening ceremony on Aug. 5, hit viewers with alarmist warnings about climate change. The Associated Press reported on Aug. 6, that viewers saw an illustration depicting “carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, swirling in the Earth's atmosphere.”
Together with Susan B. Anthony List, Ohio Right to Life blasted Strickland’s position: "Ted Strickland stands in lockstep with Hillary Clinton and the abortion lobby in their desire to force Americans to pay for abortion on demand, up until the moment of birth, with their taxpayer dollars." This statement obviously didn’t sit well with some in the media. Just last Friday, Politifact released a wildly off-base opinion of our claim, rating it as “mostly false.” The first among many problems with this article is that it proves the very thing it set out to disprove: That the repeal of the Hyde amendment would legalize taxpayer-funded abortions up until the moment of birth.
After failing to find time to report the corruption conviction of Democratic Party “rising star” Kathleen Kane during their hours long morning shows Tuesday, the “Big Three” networks ABC, CBS,and NBC still couldn’t find the time to inform the public that same evening. “Pennsylvania's embattled attorney general announced Tuesday that she will resign by the end of Wednesday after she was convicted this week of leaking secret criminal files and then lying about it,” reported the Associated Press.
Fiel a su patrón de cobertura consistentemente anti-Trump, ahora Univisión se está enfocando en la historia de Melania Trump como inmigrante a los EE.UU., convirtiéndola en su tema de noticias más importante en el programa semanal, Al Punto.
It was barely a year ago when we first uncovered Univision's willfull blacking out of any potentially harmful news surrounding the Clinton Foundation. It appears that very little has changed since then. On Sunday's Al Punto, Jorge Ramos and Congressman Xavier Becerra (D-CA34) had this brief exchange upon concluding their deep analyses of Melania Trump's pre-marital immigration statuses.
On Tuesday, ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning newscasts, along with CNN's New Day, all failed to cover a jury convicting Pennsylvania's Democratic attorney general, Kathleen Kane, on two felony charges of perjury and seven other criminal counts. MSNBC covered the breaking news of the verdict on The Rachel Maddow Show on Monday, and on Tuesday's Morning Joe. Fox News Channel gave news briefs on Kane's conviction on Tuesday's Fox and Friends.
