ABC and NBC continued their tradition of ignoring the latest controversy surrounding the Veterans Affairs department. On Monday morning, only CBS This Morning covered the news that the VA has problems paying veterans for service-related injuries with NBC's Today and ABC's Good Morning America ignoring the developments.
On the evening of July 14, only the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley covered the latest revelations while ABC World News with Diane Sawyer and NBC Nightly News were nowhere to be found.
The VA scandal is so two weeks ago. We’re now on the border invasion. Next week it will be something else. A new week - a new scandal. I’m having trouble keeping up.
Yup. And the IRS email scandal? Thats been buried so deep we will never hear about it again.
Check list for reporting...
1) Will it help Obama?
2) Will it advance liberalism?
If the answer is no to one or both questions it does not merit a response. And you’re a racist.
Oh, it’s only because ABC and NBC have so much squishy liberal stuff to report on. There’s no room for real news stories.
I've ignored ABC and NBC News for over a decade so we can maintain equilibrium.
The Founding Fathers gave the free press the protection it must have [to] bare the secrets of government and inform the people. Hugo Black
The Founding Fathers knew that a government-controlled press could not properly serve its citizens, it would only tell the people what the government wanted them to hear. A good example being “Pravda” in the Soviet Union. The “free press” in the United States, while still not controlled by the govermnent, is mostly under the direction of large corporations which dictate the content of the newspapers, magazines, and TV networks they own, so except for small independent efforts it is no longer really free. GO FREE REPUBLIC!
The Albany(NY) Times Union, a Hearst paper and an Offal Official Obama Orifice and Outlet, has yet to report allegations of a nurse at the Albany Stratton VA Medical Center. Fox News reported it about three weeks ago and the New York Post today. As soon as Obama says it is ok to report it the Times Union will do so. In the meantime the publisher and editors are apparently contemplating Obama selfie groin pictures.
Ironically the hospital is named after Samuel S. Stratton an old fashioned conservative Democrat who loved and served his country well and would have been all over this story. The current Congressman, like the TU editors, apparently is also contemplating Obama selfie groin pictures.
In the mind of Uniparty’s media if they don’t talk about something it is not important or never happened. They don’t care which one their stupid views/readers believe because they KNOW they will accept either or both without questions.
