Examples of Media Bias Numerous

Mr. Speaker, it is hard to pick the most egregious recent example of liberal media bias. There are simply too many to choose from.  

For example, the Media Research Center found that in 2016, the three networks did not report numerous Obamacare failures. This includes the Congressional Budget Office’s finding that Obamacare will cost $136 billion more than predicted last year.

The media also failed to point out that Bill Clinton’s call in his 1995 State of the Union address for enhanced border security and baring welfare benefits to illegal immigrants was met with a standing ovation.  But the media criticize those positions now.

Perhaps this is why a recent (Morning Consult) poll found that only 27 percent of Americans said the media was fair and balanced.  And it is why, to quote a New York Post columnist, “American journalism is collapsing before our eyes.”
