ABC, NBC Hide IG Warning of the Whistleblower’s Anti-Trump ‘Political Bias’

While the liberal media was treating the newly released transcript of President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as the smoking gun they needed to impeach him, CBS Evening News flashed a shred of honesty on Wednesday and reported that the Justice Department was warning lawmakers of the whistleblower’s anti-Trump “political bias”. Although, CBS’s reporting did have their own political bias problems.

It was a fact completely omitted from the cascade of Trump impeachment coverage found on ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News. “The Dependent of Justice warned the whistleblower's information was ‘secondhand’ and that there are indications, quote, ‘of an arguable political bias on the part of the complainant,’” reported CBS chief congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes.

But her report could have used some more nuance. According to an exclusive Fox News report from Tuesday night, it wasn’t just the DOJ who found that problem with the Whistleblower, it was their internal watchdog, inspector general’s office.
