As day three of the concerted push to kill the U.S. Senate bid of Alabama’s Judge Roy Moore gets underway, there is an enormous double standard at play with the media.
Moore is being spared from any semblance of a trial and has already been convicted by the presstitutes, Democrats and the Republican party establishment and all that remains is the final lynching.
Despite the 24/7 coverage being given to a fishy Washington Post story about alleged sexual improprieties 38 years ago, there is not even a peep about the ongoing corruption trial of a powerful Democrat Senator, Bob Menendez of New Jersey.
There were approximately 2 minutes and 22 seconds on a couple of morning shows but otherwise, it was: ZERO! ZIP! ZILCH! NADA! CRICKETS!
That Menendez’s trial does no merit even a minute of coverage on the big networks is a testament that the media no longer functions in the best interests of the American people but has become a corrupt, Deep State mouthpiece that now exists only to destroy the Trump presidency and protect Democrats like the creepy Senator Bob and Crooked Hillary Clinton.
If there was any doubt about the liberal media’s double-standard when it comes to policing politicians’ character, the last 24 hours have made it clear: All three networks have given heavy coverage to the serious accusations against a Republican Senate candidate, while the ongoing federal trial of a Democratic Senator has been largely hidden from view.
Democratic Senator Bob Menendez from New Jersey has now been on trial for 65 days. Menendez has been charged with taking tens of thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for political favors. Yet, in all that time, ABC World News Tonight, CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News haven’t even mentioned the trial once. NBC’s Today also hasn’t covered this trial at all, while ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning have managed to give it one story each (1 minute, 48 seconds for ABC and 22 seconds for CBS).
In the past 24 hours, the same networks that couldn’t find a single second to mention Menendez in 65 days, spent 24 minutes and 36 seconds on serious allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. Since it’s too late to put another Republican on the ballot in Alabama, Moore’s potential indiscretions threaten to flip a Senate seat that used to belong to Attorney General Jeff Sessions from red to blue.
The three evening news shows each spent about two-and-a-half minutes on the Moore scandal (ABC’s World News Tonight: 2 minutes, 48 seconds; CBS Evening News: 2 minutes, 46 seconds; NBC Nightly News, 2 minutes, 38 seconds). Good Morning America spent the most time on Moore with 7 minutes. CBS This Morning came next with 5 minutes and 22 seconds, while NBC’s Today came in third with 4 minutes, 2 seconds.
The jury has been deliberating Menendez’s fate since October 30. This is the first corruption trial of a sitting U.S. senator since 1981. On top of this, if Menendez is convicted and forced to step down before January 16, 2018, Republican Governor Chris Christie would appoint his replacement, flipping a Senate seat from blue to red.
It is inexcusable that the Menendez trial has been found to not merit coverage but Americans who get it that something is very wrong with this country should not be surprised.
The unprecedented anti-Trump onslaught by big media is right out of Orwell’s 1984 and it is hard to see how anyone who has a functional brain and the ability to think critically can view the MSN as anything outside of being pure propaganda.
You would be more likely to get diverse coverage and differing viewpoints in North Korea thanks to the rotten media’s abandonment of any semblance of journalistic principles and an obligation to fairness in the finest traditions of freedom of the press.
We no longer live in a country where people can be informed without doing a lot of work of their own and there are not many who are willing to devote the time to it.
