Networks Obsessed Over GOP Staffer, Ignore Democrat’s Sex Assault

The same networks that hyped a Republican staffer’s comments about Barack Obama’s daughters are now ignoring the sexual assault conviction of a Democratic congressional aide.

Another thing newscasts seem to like (particularly when it involves Republicans) is claims of hypocrisy. MORE: http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/top-obama-cabinet-official-grilled-congress-nets-ignore
