Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Media embargo of death threats against Wisconsin Republicans

Newsbusters is all over it.  Excerpt:

…Not taking this seriously were ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, and NPR. LexisNexis and closed-caption dump searches of “Wisconsin and ‘death threat'” produced zero results for these so-called news outlets throughout the month of March.

Zero.

When you compare this to the hysterical coverage of last year’s Tea Party rallies and town hall protests, where conservatives were regularly depicted as either hostile or fomenting violence, one has to wonder how actual death threats against sitting politicians would not be considered newsworthy.

This seems particularly curious after all the talk about hostile rhetoric immediately following the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) in January.

Now, less than two months later, actual death threats against politicians are being investigated in Wisconsin, and five major news outlets are boycotting the story.

Remember when the MSM linked (but didn’t really link, wink wink nudge nudge) the Tea Party and talk radio to the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords (D-AZ)?  Despite a total lack of any evidence or threats whatsoever, the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) blamed the right and bemoaned the alleged “lack of civility” and the “tone” of political discourse.

So how does the MSM report actual threats against Republican politicians?  Crickets…chirping…

Nope…no liberal media bias!

  1. Can’t say I was totally surprised by the silence on this subject in the MSM. It’s understandable given that they are the media of the left. By reporting the death threats, etc. that would reveal the actual tone of “civility” of the leftist organizations. That would further point out the hypocrisy of the left and their operatives. There then might arise a hue and cry from conservatives calling for investigations which lead to further alienation from the left. Can’t have the truth interfere with the agenda, now can we?

  2. Proverbs 8:13 “The fear of the LORD is to hate evil;Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate. ”
    Pretty much sums up the left AND the MSM…pardon the redundancy…I hate the MSM (evil)
