What is up with the MSM these days. Are they so arrogant to think that they can blatantly ignore major stories that affect us. Whatever happened to “objective journalism”? First it was the TOTAL lack of coverage of the new NASA policy as mentioned and discussed previously in the “Fly Me to the Moon” thread. Now, they’ve decided not to cover the whole DOJ/Black Panther case and their failure to do so has claimed a victim, Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif. Apparently, he got a little roughed up when he claimed to know nothing about the case. Seems he even mentioned that his “sources” of news (MSM) had no mention other than 1 page in 50,000.
Here, let’s watch him wiggle and squirm;
Here’s some text from the story;
A California congressman who drew shouts of disbelief at a town hall meeting when he said he was unaware of the voter intimidation case involving the New Black Panther Party explained that the reason he hadn’t heard about the story was because his news sources didn’t cover it.
Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., in a written statement released late Tuesday, accused Fox News of launching “attacks on me” for showing video of the meeting. He said he would soon send a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder regarding the incident and “the importance of allegations of voter intimidation,” but said the “major sources of information which I rely upon most” did not mention the issue.
But he also offered an excuse for missing the news, saying none of the media he reads covered it.
Sherman listed the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Daily News, the Economist, Newsweek, Congressional Quarterly and National Journal and said he only found one mention of the Black Panther case.
“While it is possible that our review missed something, it can be said that less than one page per 50,000 from the above sources deals with the issue,” Sherman said. “In contrast, Fox News covered the issue repeatedly.”
Hmmmm, looks like those “fair and balanced” folks just keep on delivering news….. ALL OF IT!!! Regardless of what some would want you to believe, THAT is the sole reason they continue to dominate the airwaves. Most folks just want it all and in this case that means ALL the news, not just what the “in bed with the Dems”, liberal editors want you to see. NBC, ABC and CBS alone lost close to another million viewers of their evening newscasts in the last year, Is it any wonder why?

Also, if you by chance are like Brad Sherman and haven’t heard about the DOJ dismissing the Black Panter voter intimidation case as well as stating that their new policy is to never bring another lawsuit against a Black or other minority, you can start here;
