The man is in just about every way possible a Democrat clone but the brand name does him in. The American media don’t even pretend anymore.
The Big Three networks, in a frenzy over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s traffic headache dubbed ‘Bridgegate,’ have devoted a whopping 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage to the affair in just the last 24 hours.
By comparison, that’s 17 times the two minutes, eight seconds devoted to President Obama’s IRS scandal in the last six months, according to an analysis by the Media Research Center.
‘While routinely burying new stories on the IRS scandal, the media practically fell over themselves to start taking shots at the potential 2016 Republican presidential nominee,’ said the conservative media watchdog.
Since Wednesday night, NBC News included six reports over 14 minutes and 14 seconds. CBS devoted five reports over 12 minutes and 27 seconds. ABC managed 4 stories over seven minutes and 47 seconds, said MRC.
As a comparison over the last six months, NBC featured five seconds on updating the IRS story. CBS responded with a minute and 41 seconds. ABC produced a meager 22 seconds.
To which may be added, 24 Underreported Democrat Scandals That Make News Media’s ‘Bridgegate Mania’ Look Like a Joke The first ten:
1. Fast and furious
3. IRS Scandal
4. AP/Fox News Tracking
5. ObamaCare’s No-Bid Website
6. NSA Scandal
8. Spitzer Prostitution Scandal
9. Jon Edwards’ Infidelity
10. Chris Dodd – Countrywide Scandal
Don’t know about these or the others then you should read the post. But compared to these, what Christie has done is about as serious as a speeding ticket. Americans at the Federal level now almost live in what is for all practical purposes a one-party state. It will come back to haunt them in a big way and unfortunately will affect us in the long run here as well.
