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.
Gabriel writes at Ricochet:
Comparing the Media’s Treatment of Parkland Teens and Covington Teens
The media didn’t exactly cover itself in glory this weekend. First, the media jumped on a BuzzFeed story that proved the Trump suborned perjury. It was debunked a day later by the Mueller team. As they wondered why Americans distrust them so, the media jumped on an anonymously posted video that proved teens at Covington Catholic High School were racists. That too was debunked a day later by a longer video of the incident.
The DC press corps screams when the President calls them “the enemy of the people.” Yet, time and time again, they prove his point. The facts no longer matter, only the narrative. Even if it means attacking teenagers.

There are many more examples. One group was pushing gun control, the other was wearing MAGA hats. Any questions?
