A BLATANT EXAMPLE OF LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS THAT EVEN I CAN SEE©

I was not trained as a journalist, but I do know how to read and I have a fair handle on comprehension of what I read, especially if it is at the level of most news put out by the major media. We have all heard of the alleged liberal media bias of the three major news networks: CBS, ABC, and NBC.  Today I want to expose a blatant example of this by two of those networks.  Even I can see it.

On Wednesday (today) news broke that someone hacked into Colin Powell’s email account.  In private emails he blasted Trump and said that he had warned the Clinton campaign several times not to use him as a scapegoat for Hillary’s choice to use a private email server. He didn't have nice things to say about Hilary either.  Well, how do you suppose ABC and NBC handled it?

In a short article of 11 paragraphs, the lead article on NBC’s website this morning titled “Colin Powell Calls Trump a 'National Disgrace' in Hacked Emails ” devoted only one of the 11 to the Clinton scandal. Here it is: “Powell expressed frustration about his name being linked to Clinton's email issues, writing in another leaked email: "I have told Hilleary's [sic] minions repeatedly that they are making a mistake trying to drag me in, yet they still try," Powell wrote.” See the article here:

ABC, however, in another brief article does NOT EVEN MENTION Powell’s comments about the Clinton email scandal. See the artilce, “Trump a 'National Disgrace,' Colin Powell Wrote in Hacked Emails,” here:  
http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-national-disgrace-colin-powell-wrote-hacked-emails/story?id=42073252

I am continually appalled at the hubris of the mainstream liberal media to pretend to journalistic objectivity and that they believe they can dupe the American people by withholding information from their readers. They are proving themselves almost worthless in their role as watchdogs on behalf of the American people.

Let’s think together gain, soon.

    I also agree .... on the hypocrisy. it is one thing to expose "leaks" sent to or in a "public entity" but quite another to take a "current" private citizen's emails... regardless of who it trashes or upholds..it was and is ....private. It is the epitome of hypocrisy to "blame Russia for "interference'in u.s. politics. and "hacking" ..and then,,,publishing what they illegally, unethically, obtained.... After this criminal act.. then...the MEDIA ...PUBLISHES it? and selectively.
    When Powell reacted to a campaign attempt to drag him in to their issues with email... that was one thing...but the rest is his Private opinion.... which he is entitled to. Mainstream Media... all of them... are such hypocrites. :)
