In the wake of the Imran Awan-Debbie Wasserman Shultz scandal, it’s sadly not surprising the liberal, mainstream media has failed to cover the story properly. And yet, if this enormous scandal involved a conservative or a Republican rather than a Democrat, you can be sure it’d be national news. But as usual, the Democrat scandal gets a free pass.
Imran Awan was the top IT aide to Democrat Wasserman Shultz and was arrested while trying to flee the country late last week. Sources say Awan had wired $300,000 to Pakistan and the FBI “seized smashed-computer hard drives” from his house.
Even more disturbing is Wasserman Shultz’s refusal to cooperate in the face of employee investigation. As reported:
“Wasserman Schultz has been especially uncooperative with the probe into her staffers and even threatened the Capitol Police chief for gathering evidence. She refused to fire Awan until after he was arrested, even though Capitol Police had already revoked Awans’ access to the congressional, IT system in February in relation to a major, security breach.”
Since 2010, Awan and his family members have garnered some $4 million while working for Democratic congressmen.
Certainly, this case is just as newsworthy as President Trump’s latest tweets. And yet, in the 24 hours following Awan’s arrest, only one network-TV show reported on it: CBS This Morning gave Awan’s arrest a solid 37 seconds of coverage on-air.
The phony Trump-Russia-collusion story probably got more coverage within its first hour than the actual, real arrest of a Democratic staffer got in a whole day. This latest, Democrat scandal should be national news, yet it has hardly made a blip on the radar.
While the liberal media is always biased against conservatives, they sadly fail to hold Democrats accountable. Instead of covering real news, to earn more “likes” and keep viewers entertained rather than informed, they’re too busy taking potshots at Donald Trump. What happened to real reporting?
