The mainstream media doesn’t want you to know what’s really going on. In the latest web of corruption, including an FBI arrest, for a solid 24 hours the media was quiet, hoping the story would die down. And their reason for hiding the latest Democratic scandal is shocking, although not surprising.
Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is as corrupt as they come. She was publicly blasted for stumping for Hillary from day one, and it looks like the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Recently, her former IT staffer was arrested by the FBI while trying to flee the country. The staffer was arrested for bank fraud, and potentially leaking sensitive Congressional information. But the media remained silent.
Had this been a Trump staffer, it would have been front page news, blaring on the TV networks at all hours of the night. However, the media hates President Trump, and would rather dedicate their days to tearing him down, instead of reporting on the news, fair and unbiased.
Dan Gainer, Vice President of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center, reported to Fox News his take on what the media is desperately trying to hide:
“Awan was the top IT aide to Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The FBI reportedly “seized smashed computer hard drives” from his home. He was “arrested trying to flee to Pakistan after wiring almost $300,000 to the country,” according to The Daily Caller, which has owned the story because it does actual news reporting.
Here’s an amazing paragraph from the Caller: “Awan and members of his family received $4 million from the Democratic congressmen they were working for since 2010. Wasserman Schultz has been especially uncooperative with the probe into her staffers and even threatened the Capitol Police chief for gathering evidence. She refused to fire Awan until after he was arrested, even though Capitol Police had already revoked Awans’ access to the congressional IT system in February in relation to a major security breach.” ($4 million, and you wonder where your tax dollars go.)
The traditional media has barely even acknowledged this story exists. In the 24 hours after his arrest, only “CBS This Morning” reported on it – for 37 seconds. And co-host Gayle King made a point of ending the story with the claim by Awan’s attorney that charges are due to “anti-Muslim bigotry.”
Newspapers have been almost as bad. The Washington Post wasn’t just slow to the party. Legal reporter Spencer Hsu didn’t mention Awan’s ties to Hill Democrats until the seventh paragraph. Imagine the Post writing like that about Hill Republicans. A headline on an Associated Press story was especially entertaining: “Florida lawmaker fires IT staffer; Anti-Muslim bigotry is cause of client’s arrest, lawyer says.”
The media can spend their time criticizing Trump’s every move, but the fact of the matter is, he is still President. Americans sharply rejected feminist Hillary Clinton on Election Day, as they didn’t want her or her corruption anywhere near the White House. The media can try and hide the truth, but in the end, truth always prevails.
