In what has to be the most stunning upset for Democrats in 15 years nationally, the bias was showing during the Scott Brown victory speech last night. While FoxNews, CNN and MSNBC carried Martha Coakley’s entire concession speech, the same coverage was not afforded Scott Brown’s victory speech.
While I watched the Coakley speech on MSNBC, I turned over to FoxNews for the Brown speech. During the speech, I briefly checked the other two cable “news” networkd. CNN was in commercial and MSNBC had Brown in a box onscreen, without sound. The Pundits and talking heads were actually making fun of Brown and his speech.
“Is he the new designated filibusterer?” and “Does he know they don’t actually talk during filibusters anymore?”
So, if you get your news from either of these outlets, you have no idea what he said. You have no clue how significant the election of yesterday was. If you watch CNN or MSNBC you have no clue because they censor what you see.
For those that missed the speech, it is well worth the 6 and a half minutes of your time.
For your personal education if you are a MSNBC or CNN viewer, the video is below.
And by way of introduction:
I’m Scott Brown
I’m from Wrentham
And I drive a truck!
