Cover-Up: ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC Ignore Gorsuch Hearing, Opening Statement

Written by  Curtis Houck

On Monday, the liberal broadcast networks and cable outlets tag-teamed to ignore the opening day of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to become the next Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court, instead spending over 11 hours of coverage on the FBI Director James Comey, addressing allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

Gorsuch’s opening statement lasted only 16 minutes and nine seconds, but the broadcast and cable networks were so obsessed with Russia and putting the argument in the minds of viewers that Clinton lost the election because of Russia (not, say, her campaign stops, messaging, or scandals), that they failed to cover Gorsuch.

ABC, CBS, and NBC all broke into regularly-scheduled programming for the start of the House Intelligence Committee hearing, offering breathless coverage with NBC fawning over Democrat Adam Schiff (Calif.) and painting only Republicans as partisans.

NBC spent over 49 minutes fretting about Russia causing Hillary Clinton to lose the election to President Trump while ABC came in with roughly 37 minutes of airtime. CBS brought up the rear with almost 16 minutes, consisting of the opening statements and testimony from the NSA’s Michael Rogers and FBI Director Jim Comey.

Over on CNN and MSNBC, they offered wall-to-wall airtime for the Comey hearing with only short pauses for the committee’s lunch break and the opening moments of White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s latest combative press briefing.

Just boycott them as I do already! We need real news not fake or one sided! Nor do I like these stations making it look like one side is guilty over another and dragging it on!
Politicians should get off their high horse and unite and work, for the money we taxpayers pay them, to do! But Schumer, Hilly, McCain, Soros etc need to be arrested and hauled away because they bring nothing to the table except confusion and greed!

The leftist anti American MSM knows that if they ignore it, their viewership will never even know it occurred. It's like if a tree falls & no one hears it, does it still make a sound? We, as Conservatives (minus a couple douche bags who write on these sites) must realize that that is all the MSM have left as more & more people are leaving their viewership.
