If you need another example of egregious media bias, how can it be less than 24 hours after the arrest of a U.S. Senator’s illegal alien sex offender intern there’s not a single story found on the main page of New Jersey’s largest newspaper? All that can be found is a tiny item on the main page linking to comments about the story.
Is it not newsworthy enough to have a follow-up story?
Then you can search for “Robert Menendez” on their main page and you get … nothing related to the story.
Unreal, but not unexpected.
Using a Google search we did locate the Star Ledger item from Wednesday afternoon, shortly after the news broke. Most of it culled from the original AP story.
An interesting nugget we found in there that clearly was buried last week, since this is the first we learned of it:
The arrest wasn’t the only headache for Menendez this week. Joseph Bigica, an insurance broker, was sentenced to five years in federal prison on Tuesday for funneling $100,000 in illegal campaign contributions to Menendez’s campaign account. Menendez, whose campaign said he cooperated in the federal probe of Bigica and described the senator as a victim, was not charged with wrongdoing.
It’s amazing how little scrutiny these Democrats receive when they’re involved with criminals. You suppose a sitting Republican senator would receive such leniency from their hometown newspaper?
Update: The nj.com site later added this hard-hitting report, which is merely a link to yesterday’s lame denial by Menendez. Weak. But hey, they can say they “covered” the story. Move along now.
