After turning a blind eye to the roll-out of the Justice Act from Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), the only black conservative in the chamber, and refusing to report on the death threats and racial slurs being left on his office voicemail, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) made it full circle Wednesday evening when they completely ignored how Senate Democrats sank the police reform legislation. And they were still uninterested in casting a critical lens at Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who claimed the GOP had killed George Floyd.
Luckily, Fox News Channel’s Special Report wasn’t trying to hide the truth from their viewers. Chief White House correspondent John Roberts had the first mention of what happened on the Senate floor earlier in the day:
JOHN ROBERTS: At a Rose Garden news conference, President Trump also weighing in on the Democrats move to stop South Carolina Senator Tim Scott's police reform bill, the Justice Act from moving forward.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: The Democrats don't want to do it because they want to weaken our police. They want to take away immunity.
Anchor Bret Baier addressed the death of the bill during the panel discussion with Axios reporter Jonathan Swan and Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel.
