“You said nothing: CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, NYT, Wash Post, USA Today,” Author Unknown

Here’s a severe indictment of the mainstream media making its way across America. I’m not sure where the blog post originated. I borrowed it from Daniel Branzai. I am re-blogging for debate purposes. I encourage readers to fact-check the various claims for themselves. The laundry lists highlights double standards in media coverage of the Obama and Trump presidencies.

Do you agree with the author? Did the author miss anything? What, if anything, is dead wrong? Assuming you agree with part of the author’s complaints, what can we as citizens do to hold media outlets accountable? I will start by saying the claims are exaggerated. Otherwise, we would know nothing about ANY of these alleged events.

    I never like when people use words like “always”, or in this case, “never”.
    I would venture to guess that there is truth in each statement.
    But as for the MSM “never” saying anything about them?
    They either under reported them and /or defended them. Which is worse in my opinion.

      As you use NEVER as the second word in your first statement… LOL SMH…

        In this case, the statement is not broadbrush but my own personal opinion.
        I never like it.
        Ever.

    This is all true. It is really terrible how the press is so hypocritical and if we just had the above we would not have any awareness of it.

    Add the incident where Comey’s FBI directly colluded with Clinton and Lynch at the tarmac meeting by instructing all observers to NOT take pictures or videos at the scene.

    It was fact-checked – Medium published an article linking to stories by liberal media like NYTimes, Politico and WaPo showing that the “liberal MSM” did cover all of these stories as they happened. Google “fact check ‘you said nothing'”. I would link to it here, but I’m assuming this comment would get flagged.
