Showing their discontent for religious liberty and penchant for just being petty, the Thursday evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC refused to cover a Mississippi church that was burned to the ground Wednesday in an act of arson because they had sued to stay open. Instead, all three of them threw a hissy fit because President Trump wasn’t wearing a mask for part of his visit to a Ford factory, which was making ventilators.
The church arson did get airtime on Fox News Channel’s Special Report. As correspondent Doug McKelway reported: “Flames tore through the First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs, Mississippi Wednesday morning. A month earlier at the church had filed suit against the town challenging its restrictions on public gatherings.”
Adding: “In the destroyed structure, misspelled graffiti reads, quote, ‘bet you stay home now, you hypocrites.”
It was a disgusting act of violence that the broadcast networks didn’t want to give any attention to, since they too were against reopening. They instead chose to be petty, bemoaning how Trump didn’t wear a mask in front of the press.
