New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is the latest top Democrat to have a career-threatening scandal that seems to be fading from mainstream media attention. Critics say this is another example of widespread double standard and liberal bias plaguing the American press.
“The media doesn’t cover the biggest stories, they cover stories that reinforce points they’ve previously made. Think of CNN hosts and New York Times reporters as prosecutors. They try not to inform the county , but to persuade the Americans “, Kick media columnist Bobby Burack told Fox News.
“They tell us that Donald Trump is bad, that white supremacy is our biggest threat, that Republicans are trying to suppress the vote and that white men are to blame for everything,” Burack added. “Unless a story provides enough juice to be used as evidence for these talking points, the media is of no use to it.”
CUOMO’S REFUSAL TO RESIGN HAS COMPARISON WITH NORTHAM’S RESISTANCE AFTER PHOTO OF THE YEAR SCANDAL
A recent NewsBusters study reported that the allegations of sexual misconduct against Cuomo had largely disappeared from mainstream media coverage. Stories about the nursing home scandal that is also negatively impacting Cuomo have also dried up.
Cuomo isn’t the only one getting a mainstream media pass. Representative Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., Association with alleged Chinese spy Fang Fang has all but evaporated. Incriminating information about Hunter, the son of then-candidate Joe Biden, was essentially blacklisted from social media last year.
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam refused to resign amid a scandal in 2019 over a photo on his medical school directory page showing two men – one dressed in blackface and the another dressed as a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Still, the Democratic governor remains in office two years after being pressured to step down from critics on both sides of the aisle.
MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC AVOID SHELDON WHITEHOUSE SAGA ALL-WHITE CLUB, CNN OFFERS LESS THAN 5 MINS OF COVERAGE
The New York Times recently celebrated Northam’s survival with a laudatory article titled “Black Virginians Took Ralph Northam Back. Neither Has Forgotten”, which claimed he had become one ” racially progressive governor “and showed” how a crisis can also offer an opportunity “to a public figure.
“After four years of racking up resistance subscribers and Twitter followers during the Trump era, the mainstream media has no choice but to continue attacking Republicans and covering Democrats. let’s see this day in and day out with the media attempting to create a new face that its viewers hate, “Washington reporter Free Beason said. Matthew Foldi told Fox News.
Foldi, who worked as a Republican agent before turning to journalism, believes Florida Governor Ron DeSantis would be constantly vilified if he got involved in scandals that Cuomo and Northam managed to survive.
Also, the media can’t go after their Democratic friends for being in bed – both literally, Alex Thomas, or figuratively, Chris Cuomo, in bed with the Democratic Party. Foldi added, referring to a Playboy reporter who dated former California lawmaker Katie Hill and Governor Cuomo’s little brother who hosts a prime-time CNN show.
Foldi said the Sheldon Whitehouse, DR.I. scandal involving all-white club memberships is “particularly instructive” when he examines how the media deals with controversies among members of their favorite party.
“Whenever there is a whiff of Democrat-made controversy, the networks send their American Bridge trackers posing as Capitol Hill correspondents to every Republican office. In this case, silence,” Foldi said. “Senate Democrats crucified Brett Kavanaugh for drinking beer in high school, but each escaped having to answer if he supported any of his currently-owned colleagues – through his wife, after he threw his property in his lap in an attempt to avoid criticism – at a beach club with a long-standing policy of banning minorities. “
CONSERVATIVE LEADERS CALL STATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL TO SURVEY FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND GOOGLE ON LIBERAL PREJUDICE
MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC were all called out for ignoring important developments in history last week when Whitehouse was confronted by a local reporter. The poor coverage contrasted sharply with the constant coverage of networks dedicated to Judge Amy Coney Barrett upon her confirmation in 2020 when they reported on her membership in the Christian group People of Praise, which critics compared to the dystopia of ” The Handmaid’s Tale “. “
“Democrats love to point out the virtue of eliminating systemic racism, but they have yet to comment on Sheldon Whitehouse’s decades of membership in at least three white-only clubs, and they know they can do it. shoot because no “mainstream” journalist would dare to press them seriously about it, “Foldi said.
The Times features a newsroom made up of far-left staff members accused of intimidating fellow Conservatives. Many observers consider MSNBC and CNN to be extremely partisan, news broadcasts are often accused of favoring the left, and free speech advocates have long called on tech giants like Twitter to treat both sides equally. in vain.
NewsBusters editor-in-chief Tim Graham says the media coverage of ethics, feuds and scandals is “the most fertile ground for exploring double standards and liberal prejudices” plaguing the country.

“The New York Times can excuse Ralph Northam in blackface and yet tried to sink Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign by harassing his tickets and those of his wife. They can try to have Trump impeached for questioning foreign leaders about trade relations summaries of Hunter Biden, and then not seriously questioning Joe Biden about Hunter Biden’s business relationship, “Graham told Fox News.” Reporters can say with a straight face that Obama’s presidency was ‘scandal-free’, then cover Trump like a perpetually moving corruption machine. ”
