1. CNN’s Cuomo Mocks IRS Scandal During Immigration Segment; Asks ‘Where is the Humanity’ to Help Kids at Border?

On Monday, viewers of CNN saw the hosts of New Day continue their championing of the Obama administration on illegal immigration with co-host Chris Cuomo asking for the rule of law to be set aside. Cuomo also mocked Republicans for being obsessed with the IRS scandal and not responding with compassion to the “flood of child humanity.” Cuomo soon mocked: “You spend weeks subpoenaing emails, on you know, on – what’s going on with the IRS, but you really not going to fight your way into these kids? It’s cause you don’t want to.” http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/cnns-cuomo-mocks-irs-scandal-during-immigration-segment-asks-where-humanity-help-kids-bor

2. ABC and NBC Continue to Ignore Latest In VA Scandal

ABC and NBC continued their tradition of ignoring the latest controversy surrounding the Veterans Affairs department. On Monday morning, only CBS This Morning covered the news that the VA has problems paying veterans for service-related injuries with NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America ignoring the developments. On the evening of July 14, only the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley covered the latest revelations while ABC World News with Diane Sawyer and NBC Nightly News were nowhere to be found. The CBS Evening News provided a full 2 minute and 19 second report on how “some employees of the Department of Veterans Affairs altered records to make it appear that vets were receiving disability checks faster than they actually were.” http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/abc-and-nbc-continue-ignore-latest-va-scandel

3. ABC, NBC Ignore Latest on VA Scandal; CBS Allows a Scant 21 Seconds

Of the three morning shows on Monday, NBC and ABC ignored the latest controversy enveloping the scandal-plagued Veterans Affairs department. Only CBS This Morning bothered to cover the news that the VA has problems paying men and women compensation for service-related injuries. This Morning co-host Charlie Rose sped through the story in just 21 seconds. [See video below. MP3 audio here.] Rose quickly related, “The agency is now accused of sloppiness and improper work, paying claims to veterans injured while serving.” http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/abc-nbc-ignore-latest-va-scandal-cbs-allows-scant-21-seconds

4. CNN’s Whitfield Tosses Softballs at ‘Inspirational,’ ‘Visionary’ Marion Barry

Fredricka Whitfield put on the kid gloves for Marion Barry on Sunday’s CNN Newsroom, and acclaimed the former D.C. mayor as a “visionary.” Whitfield skirted mentioning every single controversy Barry has been involved in through his long career save one – his “infamous drug bust in 1990.” She also spotlighted the Democrat’s conspiracy theory that the FBI set up the sting to take him down for helping the poor: “You draw that correlation that all of those things that you did for the underserved community…and the design of this drug bust.” The anchor deferentially let Barry take credit for everything supposedly going well with the city of Washington, D.C., but failed to bring up the fact that the District became the “murder capital” of the U.S. during his tenure as mayor. http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/cnns-whitfield-tosses-softballs-inspirational-visionary-marion-barry

5. Martha Raddatz Laments: With So Many International Crises, John Kerry Can’t ‘Prioritize’

Echoing past defenses of Jimmy Carter, Good Morning America’s Martha Raddatz on Monday indicated that there are simply too many international flare-ups for John Kerry and the Obama administration to focus on just one. Referring to the ongoing violence between the Israelis and the Palestinians, Raddatz lamented, “But diplomats really only so much bandwidth when they’re dealing with things. They have to prioritize.” http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/martha-raddatz-laments-so-many-international-crises-john-kerry-cant-prioritize

6. Obama-Nominated Justice Kagan Officiates at Wedding of CBS News Reporter to Ex-Obama Staffer

Julianna Goldman, who endured a marriage to former MSNBC host/reporter David Shuster, got married on Saturday, in Aspen, Colorado, to Michael Gottlieb, a former associate White House counsel for Obama. The New York Times reported on Sunday that Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, a former colleague of Gottlieb’s at the White House, “officiated.” Goldman was Bloomberg’s White House correspondent until a few weeks ago. “Next month,” the NY Times item noted, “she is to join CBS News as a television correspondent in its Washington bureau.” http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/obama-nominated-justice-kagan-officiates-wedding-cbs-news-reporter-ex-obama-staffer
