As a wise man on Twitter once said, modern journalism is about covering important stories — with a pillow. Until they stop moving.
The mainstream media has lost all credibility when it comes to objectivity and fairness. You are much safer simply assuming, until you have information otherwise, that modern journalists are in fact partisan operatives working directly with and for the Democrat Party.
How else do you explain the abject fear that the media has in covering certain issues? How else could the total information blackout on important stories be explained — or the outright, easily proven lies in the stories they do cover?
Any story that reflects poorly on a Democrat will be ignored until it advances far beyond the point at which it should have been covered. Plus, when a story advances that far and must be covered by the major networks, they downplay it as much as possible. Forget about it if you want accountability or a retraction following a blatantly false or inaccurate portrayal of events (Brian Ross of ABC News being the recent exception).
There were four major stories just in the last week that the mainstream media is too cowardly to cover, because the news reflects poorly on the far left Democrats in Congress or, in one case, reflects badly on the media itself. Check out the following clip from One America News for those four stories.
