Press reported that union members were pepper-sprayed by police in Michigan after they
attempted to storm the Michigan Senate chamber after the passage of
right-to-work legislation. But, you wouldn’t know that if you watched most
national news networks this morning. So far, ABC and CBS haven’t
mentioned the arrests. Al Sharpton mentioned them in a fawning
pro-union piece on MSNBC, but framed them as “fighting back.” CNN is the only network
that has mentioned the arrests in a negative fashion, and they failed to
mention which side the protestors were on.
