[See NewsBusters for more.] On Thursday, your tax dollars paid for PBS NewsHour to run a puff piece on radical Missouri Rep. Cori Bush for the 57th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery marches. During the profile Bush would be compared to previous civil rights activists and praised for her support for the Black Lives Matter movement and perpetual eviction moratoriums.

The piece was narrated by chief Washington correspondent Geoff Bennett, who reported that, “The police killing of Michael Brown ignited nights of protests in Ferguson that Bush helped lead, sparking the Black Lives Matter movement and inspiring her and others to run for elected office.”
