MEDIA SINS OF OMISSION
“Too often, the media ignore President Trump’s outreach to racial minorities. The major networks maintain silence in hopes that their socially corrosive lies will stick until November 2020. At least three significant events demonstrate how the big media bury Trump’s bridge-building and, thus, keep the U.S. in a divided, racially explosive rage.” writes National Review columnist Deroy Murdock.
He cites Mr. Trump’s salute last month to 50,000 immigrants from India and Americans of Indian descent — a significant event which received no coverage whatsoever from NBC, CBS and ABC, which instead focussed on a movie, a lost dog and football, respectively.
Mr. Trump also appeared at the 2019 Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week Conference in September.
“Here, too, all three evening-news shows entombed this story,” Mr. Murdock said, noting that ABC covered Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, CBS featured the medical benefit of naps while NBC showcased a 9-year-old Ohioan who was ‘lunch-shamed’ at school.
The columnist was also annoyed by the media’s absence following Mr. Trump’s call to end anti-Semitism during a National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House.
“None of the three big networks spared a moment to report on the president rallying the republic against anti-Semitism,” says Mr. Murdock. “Rather than give Americans all this news, and confirm that President Trump is neither anti-immigrant, nor anti-black, nor anti-Semitic, the Big Three maintain a sarcophagal cq
silence in hopes that their ‘Trump is a racist’ lies will stick until November 2020. This is evil.”
