Tammy Bruce on Media Bias: ‘There’s a Lot of Thought That Goes Into What Not to Cover’
Conservative radio host Tammy Bruce blasted the media for, in her view, not giving attention to stories that could potentially hurt Hillary Clinton‘s candidacy.
In a discussion on Fox News Monday, Bruce suggested that this was intentional on the part of news executives.
“There’s a lot of energy and a lot of thought that goes into what not to cover as much as goes into what to cover — especially when it comes to the bias that exists in the media these days. ”
Bruce singled out The Washington Post for not covering the announcement that healthcare premiums are expected to rise by double-digit percentages next year.
“You had the big day when the discussion about how high the new premiums would be on Obamacare. There was not one story in The Washington Post on that story.”
Fellow panelist Leslie Marshall disagreed. The progressive commentator said: “If everybody was in cahoots to have Hillary win, you would not have seen those headlines.”
