We all know that the media is biased but sometimes something happens which brings their hypocrisy into focus. In the wake of the Al Franken scandal, some people in the liberal media are actually trying to defend him.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Media Members Play Defense for Al Franken Amid Sexual Misconduct Scandal
MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt downplayed Franken’s actions as the story was developing Thursday. Calling them “allegations” despite the fact that there is photographic evidence and Franken admitted wrongdoing, Hunt qualified Franken’s actions as “not actually groping, but mock groping.”
Hunt summarized Franken’s actions in sanitized terms, not laying out Tweeden’s description of being forced to kiss Franken’s “slimy” mouth or feeling “violated.”
“In a nutshell, she said she was on this USO tour that Al Franken wrote—he was a comedian then, not a senator—wrote into the script that he should kiss her,” Hunt said. “Tried to get her to rehearse it. It was uncomfortable. She avoided him after that. Then he took a picture, which his office now says was of a joke, that showed him potentially—not actually groping, but mock-groping her while she was asleep.”
On “Deadline: White House” Friday, host Nicolle Wallace and Wall Street Journal reporter Eli Stokols said Franken deserves credit for his contrition.
“Al Franken was contrite,” Stokols said. He was echoing Wallace, who credited Franken for admitting and apologizing for his conduct.
