This isn’t the type of story the news media wants you to know about. A woman in Charleston, West Virginia averted a mass shooting, taking down the gunman, who apparently was armed with an AR-15.  The networks, as well as MSNBC and CNN buried the story of the unidentified heroic woman. Only outlets like Fox News and NewsNation covered it. Rather than report on this type of story, that a woman with a handgun saved countless lives, CBS Mornings co-host Gayle King on Wednesday dismissed the Second Amendment as just about “muskets."

Paul Pelosi, the husband of liberal media favorite Nancy Pelosi, on Saturday night was arrested for allegedly driving drunk. The three networks jumped into protection mode, allowing just 117 seconds total. ABC’s coverage was the paltriest, just a scant 22 seconds on Sunday night. The NBC and CBS morning and evening newscasts did slightly better: A still pathetic 39 seconds on NBC and 56 seconds on CBS. On World News Tonight, Sunday, Linsey Davis offered what would be the network’s only coverage (so far): 

The journalists at CBS Mornings on Wednesday reacted to the tragic mass killing in Uvalde, Texas by dismissing the Second Amendment as for “muskets” and by lobbying for gun control via a Joe Biden executive order. Co-host Gayle King lectured Texas Republican Congressman Tony Gonzales, chiding him for not supporting background checks (which don’t appear they would have stopped the Uvalde killer). Earlier in the show, talking to liberal Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy, guest co-host Michelle Miller lobbied for Biden to go around Congress.

I do not think if they were here today that they were thinking that people, kids, would have these assault rifles.” 

Suggesting that the state you want to lead really sucks is an odd campaign strategy. But that’s the latest statement from liberal Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Yet you wouldn’t know it if you watched ABC. Good Morning America on Tuesday hid the campaign gaffe. In fact, ABC hasn't covered it at all. CBS Mornings and NBC’s Today, however covered the questionable comments from the weekend.

 Looking for inventive new ways to freak out over the possibility that Roe v. Wade might be overturned, CBS Mornings journalist Holly Williams on Monday traveled to Ireland to find people to trash the “medieval” United States and compare this country to Egypt and Iraq. The segment featured not a single pro-life voice and minimized the truth that several countries in Europe can be very restrictive on abortion, more so than many U.S. states. Williams recounted, “Ireland is nearly 80 percent Catholic, and used to have some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the world.” 

An avowed racist committed an unspeakable act on May 14, 2022, murdering 10 African Americans at a grocery story in Buffalo, New York. The mainstream media reacted in a sadly predictable way: They took an evil action by a disturbed individual and attempted to link conservatives everywhere to it. According to NBC’s Chuck Todd, “the chickens are coming home to roost” when it comes to white supremacy. The New York Times smeared that congressional Republicans “have stoked the beliefs that led to the killing.” CNN’s Brian Stelter said that, in regards to the killing, “you’re talking about the biggest stars on Fox News.” CBS Mornings on Wednesday connected “many conservative politicians” to the views of the racist alleged gunman. This is something we’ve seen again and again over the decades: An isolated loner or mentally unstable person commits violence and journalists connect it to the broader conservative movement. But when, for instance, a self-described fan of Rachel Maddow attempts to slaughter congressional Republicans at a baseball practice, they downplay connections to the political left.
