Sometimes, media bias comes in the form of what the media doesn’t cover. While the liberal media seems to love talking about Russia or Trump’s tweets, they’ve completely ignored the passage of Kate’s Law which should have been a major news story.
The Washington Examiner reports:
ABC and CBS evening news completely ignored vote on Kate’s Law
The House voted to pass two immigration measures on Thursday, but both ABC and CBS completely omitted that information from their nightly news programs.
On “NBC Nightly News,” anchor Lester Holt dedicated just 26 seconds to the story after leading his program with a three minute segment on President Trump’s tweets about Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, according to a survey of the coverage conducted by the conservative Media Research Center.
One of the immigration reform bills voted on by the House, Kate’s Law, passed with bipartisan support, a newsworthy development amid heightened partisanship in Washington. The bill also touches a topic about which people have very strong feelings. Although it’s unlikely the legislation will survive a vote in the Senate, the decision by two of the three major networks simply to blow it off is somewhat remarkable. The law passed more than an hour before either broadcast aired, a development that had been widely anticipated all week.
When Obama was president, the media hyped pretty much any legislative win as a major accomplishment. Under Trump, they’re obsessed with promoting negative news.
