Lies and the lying liars who tell them...

CNN says they didn't cover the Yee story because... Pphhhht! State politics? They don't cover corruption scandals in state-level politics!
No word if the nomex undies they issue their writers are embroidered with the corporate logo or not.

Well it's not like Leeland was running for statewide office...

Oh.

Well it's not like he was a major advocate and author of laws that would restrict Free Speech...

Oh.

And it's not like he was big on arms restrictions...


Local story!

Don't forget Wendy Davis.

I wonder if Yee thought he wouldn't be found out, or if he thought he'd get the same pass from the anti-liberty crowd that "BJ" Bill Clinton got from the feminists for his scandal.

If I recall, Chris Christie was and is just a governor of a state, and a much smaller state than California, yet you'd think that CNN stands for Christie News Network the way that they cover him.

What amazes me most is that CNN still exists.

I'm guessing it would disappear overnight, if airports and hospitals stopped placing it on their televisions.

Agendas... They can haz them... But they don't (or so they say)...

I wish I could get James Earl Jones to record the words "These ... are Brazen Liars" for me.

Still no Yee in the NYT...

146 Rob Ford stories on CNN though.

It's statements like the fib from CNN and the visible omission from the NYT that have caused their viewership/readership to rival last quarter's readership of Look Magazine.
People still demand a minimal amount of perceived impartial reportage from the news media, and when it is obvious even to the non-political viewers that there is an agenda pre-editing the coverage, readership will suffer (Although I doubt my leftist brothers and their Stalinist wives have even heard that Yee was arrested.

Maybe they think Yee is a field agent for the BATFE? If it is okay for a government agency to run guns to gangs then it should be okay for an individual member of government to do the same t hings. Therefore, no story.

Good point, Matt. "Freelancing".
