On Thursday morning CBS Radio News demonstrated again why so many complain about media bias.
Concerning the story of left-wing anarcho-fascists rioting in Berkeley, Calif., and forcing the University of California to cancel a speech by Milo Yiannopoulos (after it had promised to have enough security to prevent such a happening), anchor Frank Settipani described Yiannopoulos as the (or an) editor of the “ultra right-wing website Breitbart.”
Frank, have you ever uttered the term “ultra left-wing”? Like maybe in describing the rioters?
I’d hazard to answer that’s a no.
And that’s part of the problem with the media, most of them don’t see anyone to their left.
Oh, and here’s one of CNN’s contributions afterward, “Milo Yiannopoulos Is Trying to Convince Colleges that Hate Speech Is Cool.”
You see, in their eyes, it was all Milo’s fault that the protestors had to get out of bed or put down their bongs to go riot and stop him from speaking. He deserved to be shut down.
And the media wonders why it is so reviled…
