If you want to see liberal media bias in action, look how differently two practically identical events were treated.Let’s look at two recent speeches, one at the RNC, and one at the DNC. At the RNC, Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith who was killed during the 2012 Benghazi attack spoke. At the DNC, Khizr Khan, the father of a slain American Muslim soldier who died fighting for our country spoke. So in other words, two extremely similar speeches, albeit with different political connotations added to them.
So how did MSNBC report on the two? You have to see it to believe:
Yes – Pat Smith voluntarily giving a speech at the RNC is the RNC “manipulating the pain of a grieving mother for partisan gain.” Both Smith and Khan used their platform to attack the opposing candidate, Smith attacking Hillary, and Khan attacking Trump, so why wasn’t the DNC “manipulating the pain of a grieving father for partisan gain”?Also – do we need to mention Khan’s son was killed in a war that Hillary, but not Donald Trump supported? I suppose that makes two speakers who can blame the death of their son on Hillary Clinton.
I just can’t imagine why people distrust the media.
