It’s no surprise that ABC, NBC, and CBS are more left-leaning news stations, but just how biased they are might shock you. Leaders of the House Media Fairness Caucus wrote letters to the presidents of ABC, CBS, and NBC News, reported CNS News.
The letter, written by Caucus co-chairmen Reps. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), Alex Mooney (R-WV) and Kevin Cramer (R-ND), detailed how The Hill had extensively reported on President Donald Trump’s involvement with Russia, but only briefly reported on the Clinton Foundation’s relationship with Russia when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State:
“‘Despite the severity of the claims, the three networks have only spent a combined 4 minutes and 38 seconds covering the story. By comparison, the networks have spent 1,000+ minutes on the Trump-Russia collusion story,’ the Caucus said, citing Media Research Center (MRC) analysis in a statement announcing the letter.”
These findings portray the scope of just how biased these liberal news sources are and how serious the concern is with getting information to the general public:
“‘The Russia Uranium One scandal is an important developing story and the American people deserve to know the facts surrounding the investigation. If the American people do not have the facts, they cannot make good decisions, and if they cannot make good decisions, our democracy is at risk.’
‘The obvious lack of objectivity of our network news organizations has never been more obvious than illustrated by the disparity of coverage of these two national stories,’ said Rep. Cramer.”
This bias is a direct threat to our nation’s democracy by omitting important information regarding a large scale scandal in the interest of the political parties these news organizations hold.
“NBC, CBS and ABC have all failed to meet the ‘public interest’ standard required of broadcasters, Cramer said:
‘The distribution of content on the public airwaves carries a ‘public interest’ standard, a standard abandoned by NBC, CBS and ABC long ago. At a minimum, ‘public interest’ ought to be reflected by the absence of bias in news coverage.'”
This just goes to show that you can’t trust these “fake news” sources.
