Bias by omission was the theme Tuesday for ABC, CBS, and NBC. While they ignored a dubious Democratic campaign event in Georgia and liberal California releasing sex offenders, they also turned a blind eye to an attack in Aspen, Colorado by eco-terrorists who targeted natural gas lines in the area, and killed the heat to around 3,500 customers as temperatures dropped to near ZERO with a snowstorm rolling in.
Since there’s no such thing as a right-wing eco-terrorist, the broadcast networks were trying to protect their friends in the radical elements of their ideology.
It was a good thing that Bret Baier, anchor of Fox News Channel’s Special Report delivered a news brief on the attack during his Outside the Beltway segment:
Fox 31 in Denver, where the heat is coming back on for thousands of residents in Aspen after police say there was an attack on three natural gas sites, as temperatures are forecast to fall near two degrees there. Police say “Earth first” was found written on a pipe at a natural gas pumping station near the ski resort town.
What’s even more ridiculous was the fact that ABC News actually had their own online report about the attack, and still refused to give it airtime on World News Tonight.
