Media Silence On Bob Menendez

Here is a great example of how the media’s bias is expressed through what they do not say. For instance, I doubt many know a sitting U.S. Senator was getting Visa’s for call girls (which is illegal) as well as using tax-payer funds to fly to another country for sex.

  • Prostitution is both legal and widespread in the Dominican Republic, where as many as 100,000 women are part of the industry in a nation that has become a major sex-tourism hotspot of the Caribbean. (AMERICAN SPECTATOR)

And in a recent New York Times 1,200-word story on the upcoming trial of Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, they neglected to mention Sen. Menendez’s party affiliation. I find it unbelievable that if a Republican was in the same spot, that his party affiliation would go without mention. In fact, I bet people know more about Paul Manafort (at least name recognition) than Bob Menendez. (Even though the court is stacked against Trump)

“ABC and NBC on Wednesday continued their silence on the bribery trial of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez, CBS This Morning allowed a scant 22 seconds” (NEWS BUSTERS). HOWEVER, that silence aside… now NBC is calling Bob Menendez a Republican!

While the bias is expressed in what is not said… here is an example of a bias creeping via the writer who probably thought only Republicans would do such a thing.

Sen. Menendez Says Obama SOTU Straight from Tehran!

Today Senator Menendez who sits on the Foreign Relations Committee responded to Obama’s talking points from his SOTU speech:

“You know, I, I have to be hones with you. The more I hear from the administration and its quotes, the more it sounds like talking points that come straight out of Iran. And it feeds to the Iranian narrative of victimization.”

Absolutely Uncertain! (18-minute mini-documentary)

From video description:

A new, 18-minute mini-documentary follows the journey of Irina, a 23-year-old liberal, Jewish New Yorker who voted for Obama in 2008. Yet as her connection to Israel has grown, and she has learned more about the President’s policies across the Middle East and towards Israel in particular, Irina has come to realize that “when the chips are down,” the President may not “have Israel’s back” as he says.

The short film features:
