The liberal bastion of Los Angeles hasn’t had a Republican elected mayor since the early 1990s. Yet, according to Democratic Mayor Eric Garcetti, and the silence from NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, the city’s exploding homelessness problem was getting worse due to “conservative cuts to programs”.
During his Wednesday report, Holt freely admitted that L.A.’s “homelessness has jumped 16 percent in a year. Half of Americans living on the streets are in California” and that it has “sparked concerns about safety and sanitation.” Those were facts the liberal media often tries to hide and sweep under the rug.
