Sen. Rubio: Media Bias Had Major Role In Riots – But Don’t Allow It ‘To Turn Us Into Them’


“I don't care what hat they wear, I don't care what banner they're carrying, riots should be rejected by everyone - every single time," Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said in a video on social media Friday.

"Now are the left hypocrites? Absolutely, I remember what they now are calling 'insurrection,' they were justifying just this summer. 

They called it 'the language of the unheard' when rioters were burning cities. Is the mainstream media, especially places like CNN and MSNBC outrageously biased? Of course, 100%. I remember one of the CNN hosts last summer on the air saying something like, 'tell me where it says protests need to be polite and peaceful.'" 

"By the way, this kind of blatant bias, this double standard, that's one of the reasons why so many Americans have sought political shelter in divisive political movements and in conspiracy theories that offer them the promise of fighting back against it."

"But here's what I want you to hear right now, we can't allow our anger about all of that stuff to turn us into them."
