Skip to comments.Radio Silence on Leland Yee
Posted on 04/02/2014 3:03:08 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Having assiduously ignored one of the gonzo corruption stories of the last decade, CNN this week offered a peculiar defense of its silence. Rankled by a curious Twitter user, who asked why the Leland Yee story appears nowhere on CNNs website, the outlet explained that the decision was in line with us covering state senators & state secretary of state races just about never. You see another conspiracy? the account asked its inquisitor, snippily.
There is a lot of space between bias and conspiracy, and one does not have to believe that CNNs editorial staff is sitting around stroking white cats and cackling for its explanation to remain unsatisfactory. A search for the words state senator on CNNs website returns more than 2,800 results, the vast majority of them stories about . . . state senators. Wendy Davis one such state senator yields 168 entries, many of which predated Daviss running for governor; Stacey Campfield, a Tennessee state senator who has made some choice comments about homosexuals, returns five; and Ted Nugent, who is not an elected figure of any sort, returns 186, a substantial number of which relate to comments he made while supporting Texas attorney general and gubernatorial nominee Greg Abbott earlier in the year. For his part, Yees name returns just one result, a video in which, per the outlets own blurb, he discusses a bill to help prevent children from having access to violent video games.

True-blue CNN dares not utter a discouraging word about gun-running Scumacrat Leland Yee.....b/c that would compromise CNN's loyalty oath. CNN is uniformly marching w/ Scumacrats, saluting smartly to der leader.
(CACKLE) So I guess lockstepping CNN staff are all wearing
the DNC-issue uniform du jour.....what every well-dressed
lock-stepping Democrat loyalist is wearing this election season:
DNC-ISSUE BROWN SHIRTS
But Democrat Yee was very well-versed in the how-to's of gun-running terroristic weaponry --- and may have even done this before.
CAUGHT ON TAPE Democrat Yee showed the undercover FBI agent the entire process of how to get those weapons from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines into the United States (according to the FBI affidavit).
Moreover, the FBI criminal complaint stated that Democrat Yee sought campaign donations in return for connecting an Italian gangster from New Jersey with an international arms dealer. The gangster was actually an undercover federal agent, the complaint said.
YEE DIDNT MINCE WORDS The FBI complaint said Democrat Yee talked tough about having shady contacts who could obtain automatic weapons. "Do I think we can make some money? I think we can make some money, the state senator said, according to the complaint. Do I think we can get the goods? I think we can get the goods."
The complaint says Democrat Yee described his approach to arms dealing as "agnostic." People want to get whatever they want to get. Do I care? No, I dont care. People need certain things, Yee said, according to the complaint.
in line with us covering state senators & state secretary of state races just about never.
Unless the subjects happen to be Republicans.
Certainly the media does not want attention brought to this “insignificant” story, it would make one of their darling demodummies look bad now wouldn’t it? (sarc)
Thanks for supplying more details, since this press obviously deems this unworthy of reporting.
I had wondered for whom he thought he was importing these weapons, and it appears that he really didn't care. I guess that's better than his smuggling weapons ear-marked for the Muslim Brotherhood or something similar, but it's amazing how unconcerned he was about what his supposed buyer planned to do with these weapons (which weren't only handguns, so obviously he knew the shipment wasn't "just" going to ghetto street gangs).

For anyone whos interested, heres a link to the Yee, et al, affidavit. Its fun reading.
I think he was led to believe he was selling weapons to Muslim terrorists in the Philippines.
Rat bastard journalists.
MSM idea of law ignore it nothing more than pimps of chaos it’s the only way they can keep their job.
SAVAGE: ‘If Holder quashes this case and Republicans don’t act, America is over’
The 0bamanite media’s protection is for Yee but not for thee!
