Reporter Reminds Us That The Contempt With Which The MSM Is Regarded, Is Well Deserved (UPDATE ADDED)
[guest post by Dana]
What better opportunity than “an intentional act” of an exploding bomb for the MSM to display its habitual double-standards. At issue is last night’s “bombing” in NYC and Donald Trump’s comments.
Trump says ‘bomb’ went off in New York before details of explosion confirmed
Donald Trump said at a campaign rally here Saturday night that a “bomb went off” in New York City, as initial reports about a possible explosion in Manhattan were circulating.
“I must tell you that just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what’s going on,” said Trump shortly after he deplaned at a rally at a hangar here. It was not immediately clear based on reports what exactly unfolded in New York.
The Associated Press reported around the same time as Trump’s remark that firefighters were at the scene of a possible building explosion in the city.
Trump added: “But boy, we are living in a time — we better get very tough, folks. We better get very, very tough. We’ll find out. It’s a terrible thing that’s going on in our world, in our country and we are going to get tough and smart and vigilant. … We’ll see what it is. We’ll see what it is.”
However, missing from the gasping scolds’ reporting is that last night Hillary Clinton also referenced bombs exploding:
“I’ve been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey…”
Immediately, a reporter with an obvious agenda asks Clinton what she thinks about Donald Trump using the term “bomb”:
“Senator Clinton, do you have any reaction to the fact that Donald Trump, immediately upon taking the stage tonight, called the explosion in New York a “bomb”?
Amusingly, Clinton stated that she would have more to say about it, “when we actually have some facts”.
And no one blinked an eye.
It now begins with this instead:
Well, I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this.

CNN is a disgrace.
