Just a couple days ago, Univision unearthed major facts in the Fast and Furious scandal surely set to shake up the American media. Among their findings: 57 unreported guns used by Mexican drug cartels to commit crimes. Of these 57 weapons, 3 were used in a massacre on January 30, 2010.
Mary Chastain of Breitbart News says of the massacre:
Twenty hit men surrounded a birthday party filled with high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez. They opened fire on the party guests. Fourteen were murdered and twelve more were wounded. The assassins were hired by the Mexican cartel La Linea.
And the liberal media reacted with...complete silence. On Sunday alone, ABC, CBS and NBC all had a blackout of coverage revolving the groundbreaking report.
Geoff Dickens of NewsBusters writes:
There were zero mentions on Sunday night’s ABC's World News and CBS's Evening News(NBC's Nightly News was pre-empted by Ryder Cup coverage) or on any of Monday’s morning shows. The blackout on ABC’s broadcasts is particularly confounding since they have an excerpt from Univision's September 30 report on ABC'sofficial Web site.
The refusal by ABC, CBS or NBC to report the findings is remarkable since the Univision report not only contains politically explosive information to a sitting administration at the height of the election season but also compelling human tragedy. Univision’s Gerardo Reyes and Santiago Wills reported “Indirectly, the United States government played a role in the massacre” of 14 Mexican teens in a one-story house by “supplying some of the firearms uses by the cartel murders.”
Why the silence? I think we all know it's because the liberal media covers for, well, any liberal politician, and surely President Obama.
Below is a perfect example of Univision contradicting the Obama Administration's claims. Yet, nothing nothing but crickets from the American mainstream media.
Fast and Furious has left blood on people's hands, yet the media choose to report on 'stories' such as a Romney undercover tape of him stating 47% of Americans are dependent upon government and will vote for President Obama regardless. So much so that this gaffe was mentioned at a ratio of 13-1 in caparison to President Obama's 'Redistribution' tape - and without a doubt a lot more than Fast and Furious.
Just last week, a Gallup poll showed distrust of the mainstream media at an all-time high- 60%. Americans do not have faith in the media to report news fully, accurately, and fairly.
Univision's reporting on the Fast and Furious scandal in comparison to the liberal media's coverage is a perfect example of why.
