Study suggests mainstream media double standard at work after arrest of Rep. Chris Collins

Quote:The Media Research Center reported that ABC, CBS and NBC combined to cover Collins’ arrest on evening and morning newscasts for a combined 18 minutes and 24 seconds during the first 24 hours of coverage. The MRC study also noted that similar ordeals involving a Democrat received little to no attention from the same networks.

And that was just the first 24 hours.

Quote:“On Wednesday and Thursday, the networks not only offered a lot of time to Collins’s arrest, but they also heavily emphasized the Republican’s connection to Trump,” Whitlock wrote. “Is that the journalistic standard now? Corruption matters because Trump is President? Apparently, corrupt Democrats were of no concern during the Obama era.”

The article gives examples of two Dems who were arrested and convicted. One of the received 68 seconds of air time from the time of her arrest until his conviction a year and a half later. The second example received 0 air time.

I would like to see these results with 24 hour news channels added in.

Of course this isn't news at all to most, but for some it might come as a stunning surprise.  Bias in the media?  Say it isn't so!

With almost every big news corp climbing on the "lets get Trump" bandwagon, it gets old quickly.  Distrust of the media is at an all time high. Frankly they deserve every bit of it.  I'm sure they get tired of the Fake News!  persona that has been assigned to them, but it only takes a short bit of research on the internet to see their glaring bias.  

Yeah they been in the tank for Democrats, Rino's,, and the deep state for years.  Nothing's gonna change except by some drastic changes.
