Posted on 02/27/2019 5:32:04 PM PST by RightGeek
So I was going to have a little fun at the expense of CNN this morning, contrasting the news sites headline for the Democrats' gun restriction bill--"House to vote on guns background check bill with bipartisan support" --which has garnered exactly four Republican co-sponsors, with its headline for the Sen. Ben Sasse's anti-infanticide bill, which I was certain would be solely about the "GOP" despite having four Democrat Senators voting to move the bill forward. Turns out, it was even better.
There was nothing to contrast because, as far as I can tell, CNN doesn't feature a single story on their website regarding the Democratic Party blocking of Sasse's Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would have saved newborn babies who survive abortion attempts from negligent homicide.
CNN didn't even bother producing one of those predictably prejudiced pieces, like the ones we saw in Politico or the Washington Post yesterday, mischaracterizing Sasse's bill as "anti-abortion." They didn't bother with the "conservatives pounce!" stories like the Daily Beast or Vox. They didnt bother, like so many others, to distract from the number of viable babies being aborted by stressing only 1.5 percent of the procedures are in post-20 weeks, rather than pointing out there are somewhere around 15,000 to 18,000 aborted every year. They just ignored it.

Mainstream Media is the Propaganda Arm of the Dem Party
Lying by omission.
You are exactly right.
Most of the Media practices “Censorship by Omission”. They simply cover up anything that might reflect negatively on the Left.
David Burge rocks. He used to be active here.
Kinda like with Scalia, huh, Mr Burge?
Do you know why he’s no longer around? It sounds like he’d be an asset.
But they were all over the Cohen hearing today - every network - ABCNBCCBS - covered it wall to wall at the expense of their usual daytime programming - but they’re not politically biased - no not at all.....
“The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread.”
John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff for the New York Times, 1953.
I had never heard this. Thank you.
And if you depended on media reports you would think it is now all over for Trump due to Cohen’s testimony and provided devastating testimony and evidence against him - not the reality of it revealing nothing and even contradicting other known facts, he was a convicted liar being brought in as a star witness, etc. So that is the “reality” to tens of millions of Americans - what the media reported.
