MEDIA LASH OUT AT CARLY FIORINA FOR TELLING TRUTH ABOUT PLANNED PARENTHOOD IN DEBATE: This was inevitable, wasn’t it?
Even though “Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn’t know because they might reflect badly on Democrats,” as Jim Treacher tweeted last year, from time to time news that’s inconvenient to the left escapes out into the open, and that makes the gatekeepers in the MSM rather angry.
11 years ago, the late Tony Blankley quipped, “Mark the calendar. August 2004 is the first time that the major mainline media — CBSNBCABCNEWYORKTIMESWASHINGTONPOST L.A.TIMESNEWSWEEKTIMEMAGAZINE ASSOCIATEDPRESSETC. — ignored a news story that nonetheless became known by two-thirds of the country within two weeks of it being mentioned by the ‘marginal’ press.”
And the DNC-MSM have been pounding their high chairs over the Swift Vets ever since. That cycle would be repeated time and time again in the years since. The “keep rockin’” LA Times attempting to prop up John Edwards’ campaign by embargoing details of his affair with Rielle Hunter. Followed in short succession by Obama and the MSM’s “Wright-Free Zone.” Van Jones’ myriad controversies ignored until the MSM suddenly had to report on why he was tossed under the wheels of the Obama bus, ACORN, ClimateGate, Gosnell, and now Planned Parenthood.
But if old media wants to get up to speed on this issue, perhaps they should take Mollie Hemingway of the Federalist’s advice and “Watch The Video Planned Parenthood And Its Media Allies Deny Exists.”
