Today the most SCANDALOSO of stories broke in the Missouri senate race: Once upon a time, Todd Akin was arrested for a peaceful protest outside of an abortion clinic. He was arrested because he blocked the doors. Salon and the Huffington Post, two bastions of objective media, ran with the story; Salon went further and reported another scandal: Todd Akin once sent a letter to a public militia event which complimented the patriotism of the peaceful citizens exercising their Second Amendment.
Scandalous, indeed. You see, the Second Amendment is reviled by the left and the simple exercise thereof invokes lefty comparisons to domestic terrorists while their ideology refuses to identify actual terrorism.
Missouri media ran with the stories as well, the same media who have yet to write a single line about the sexual harassment suit going against the McCaskills’ business next week, not ten years or 25 years ago. Still no word on the whistleblower deposition which accuses the Senator’s husband of cutting deals tied to stimulus cash with McCaskill’s knowledge in the senate dining room.
It’s clear that the Missouri media has no interest in reporting on the developments in the Missouri Senate race if it’s unrelated to re-electing Claire McCaskill. So why don’t you hold them to the standards of the journalism they claim? Here is a handy comprehensive list (still expanding with the addition of individual reporters soon) of MO media on Twitter to start.
