Earlier this week, Seddique Mateen, the father of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen, was spotted sitting directly behind Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at a rally in Kissimmee, Florida. Mateen has publicly expressed anti-American viewpoints and is an ideological supporter of the Afghan Taliban. Yet despite this horrific oversight by the Clinton campaign, the mainstream media has instead chosen to focus on an off-the-cuff remark Donald Trump made about the Second Amendment (a remark which, by the way, is not incorrect). To put the slant into perspective, Tim Graham of the Media Research Center explained on the O’Reilly Factor that network news stories about Trump’s comments outnumbered those about Clinton’s “special guest” by a rate of five-to-one:
[Eric] Bolling began the segment by reading for viewers the five-to-one disparity in coverage on ABC, CBS, and NBC of both controversies before giving way to Graham, who prefaced his analysis by noting that “it’s getting worse as we go along.”
“CBS is really standing out here because they have 14 minutes on Trump to one on Hillary. So, they are really skewing the whole thing. It just shows you a general election pattern that they always have, which is take whatever the gaffe is like binders full of women and completely exaggerate it and hyperinflate it and with the Democrats it’s like what story,” Graham explained.
Meanwhile, a CNN report completely buried the fact that the Department of Justice refused a request by the FBI to investigate the Clinton Foundation.
Is it clear yet that Clinton has everyone in her back pocket?
