Have We Ever in Modern History Seen a Media That Circles the Wagons Around One Candidate while Blatantly Firing on the Other?
The nation’s top newspapers were even worse.
The New York Times printed a 1,287-word article at the top right of the front page headlined (all caps) "TRUMP SUGGESTS GUN OWNERS ACT AGAINST CLINTON: ALARM AT HIS REMARK." Then beside it was a negative story for Trump as well as one on the editorial page. The Times offered absolutely nothing in the print edition on Mr. Mateen.
The Washington Post wasn’t much better. Like the Times, it plopped the Trump story on top right of Page One, a 1,409-word story. Like the Times, its lead staff editorial piled on. There wasn’t any story on Papa Mateen.
USA Today isn’t exactly in the same territory. They offered a front-page story on Trump’s Second Amendment remarks, as well as a front-page story headlined "Never Trump Ranks Grow." Nothing on Mateen.
Even The Wall Street Journal posted a front-page article Wednesday headlined "New Flap for Trump Over Gun Comments" that went on for 29 paragraphs. The Wednesday paper had no article on Mateen. Excerpted from Mrc News Busters
