The Republican VP candidate Mike Pence called out the media for their double standard, but was immedietly dismissed by the liberal host that was interviewing him…
From Western Jounralism:
The Indiana governor was asked about his running mate’s recent allegations of sexual harassment, but was repeatedly cut off whenever he brought up the WikiLeaks release of Hillary Clinton’s emails.
CBS’s Norah O’Donnell asked Pence if he thought Donald Trump’s language was sexually predatory, to which Pence insisted he had already addressed those claims.
“No, I already spoke about my concerns about the language he used in that 11-year-old video,” Pence told O’Donnell. “But what he’s made it clear is that was talk, regrettable talk on his part, but that there were no actions.
When Pence tried to point out that Clinton, while she was secretary of state, had allegedly given preferential treatment to friends for reconstruction contracts in Haiti, CBS’ Charlie Rose was quick to interrupt him.
“We would like to ask all of those questions … we would like to ask all of those questions of her. But we have Donald Trump’s running mate here this morning,” Rose said.
Pence pressed on issue, bringing up emails indicating Clinton advocating for open borders, her pay-for-play politics, and her support of socialized medicine.
“Governor, I want to let my colleagues have a chance here. I want my colleagues to have a chance,” Rose interrupted, again. “Clearly these are important issues and we’d like to raise them with her and her running mate, but we have you here this morning.”
On NBC’s Today, Pence called out co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie for also holding a double standard when it comes to balanced reporting.
“ABC, CBS and NBC dedicated 4 hours and 13 minutes to discussing the recent allegations of sexual misconduct surrounding Donald Trump’s campaign,” NewsBusters reported. “Meanwhile, not only has the continual release of the WikiLeaks emails from top Hillary staff gotten a comparatively puny 36 minutes.”
Obviously it doesn’t matter what is said. If I Republican did it, then of course it is true. And don’t forget, you are not allowed to speak poorly of Hillary Clinton.
