The Mainstream Media continue to be whores for President Lucifer.
The media’s coverage of “victims” of the recent federal government shutdown vs. their coverage of victims of Obamacare is a shocking ratio of 100 to 1.
Ben Shapiro reports for Truth Revolt, Oct. 17, 2013, that since October 1, when the government shutdown began, the media have run dozens upon dozens of stories about victims of the shutdown. Over the same period of time, the media have run virtually no stories about businesses suffering thanks to Obamacare, low-income people victimized by the new Obamacare tax, and economic chaos thanks to the impact of Obamacare.
The Washington Post was a key offender in its bias, with over 220 stories on the supposedly horrible effects of the government shutdown vs. only 3 stories on the individuals and small businesses victimized by Obamacare.
The New York Times ran well over 80 stories about victims of the government shutdown, but ran zero stories about those negatively affected by Obamacare.
The story was the same on television. From October 1 to October 15, ABC World News with Diane Sawyer spent approximately 21 minutes over the course of eight broadcasts covering stories of the shutdown and its effects on victims. Over the course of the same period, ABC News covered Obamacare twice, and then only to point out website difficulties quickly but praise Obamacare overall. There were no stories of victims of Obamacare in that entire period.
Brian Williams’ NBC Nightly News was no better. From October 1 to October 16, the program spent over 30 minutes discussing victims of the government shutdown. All Obamacare coverage was relegated to discussion of website glitches, but no actual victims of Obamacare were shown.
CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley had approximately 27 minutes worth of stories on government shutdown victims. Aside from segments about the Obamacare glitches, there were no stories about victims of Obamacare. There was a two minute segment about evil Republican governors who hadn’t expanded Medicaid under Obamacare, however. So much for Pelley’s “real consequences for real people”.
Overall, the Washington Post and New York Times covered victims of the government shutdown over victims of Obamacare by a margin of 100 to 1; ABC, NBC, and CBS News all covered victims of the government shutdown over victims of Obamacare by a margin of over 78 minutes to zero.
