WHAT BIAS? Compare Media’s Treatment Of Covington Teens Vs. Parkland Teens

Have you noticed how differently the media has treated the teens from Covington High School versus the way they treated the Parkland teens? Writer Jon Gabriel has. One group was hailed as heroes by the media, the other was vilified and worse.
