Which lives matter to media….and which lives do they not give a damn about?
Here is a clue, from Alatheia Nielson and Katie Yoder’s article at newsbusters.org:
When Patricia Smith, the mother of a Benghazi victim, spoke against Hillary Clinton at the RNC last week, ABC’s Good Morning America spent just 13 seconds on her.The View’s Joy Behar (also on ABC) even called Smith’s speech “inappropriate,” and insinuated it was unclassy for Republicans to have her speak.
This week however, Good Morning America preemptively spent 11 minutes, 31 seconds interviewing the mothers of black men killed by police — before they spoke at the DNC. Behar remained strangely silent on the appropriateness of their speeches.
There’s your answer.
Let me end with a question for you: if Hillary Clinton featured Ms. Smith and Republicans featured those mothers, would the coverage have been different?
That’s like asking if a group of 6 year olds were given a choice of pickled herring or ice cream, which would they pick?
But listen to them squeal like stuck pigs if you call them biased.
