Weird How Only CNN Seems to Care That Speaker Called Hillary ‘Whore’ at Bernie Sanders Rally

songIf you’re a viewer of CNN as well as a Mediaite reader, then you’re probably well familiar with the attack launched at Hillary Clinton (later denied) by Dr. Paul Song at a Bernie Sanders rally Wednesday evening. In a rant against Hillary Clinton and the political status quo, Song said that voters need to stop electing “corporate Democratic whores.”

As of Thursday afternoon, CNN had played the clip and reported on the story 9 times (according TVeyes monitoring service), about once per hour, even though the speaker is married to CNN host Lisa Ling. What’s weird, though, is that over on MSNBC, the story only rated three mentions, none of them during the network’s three-hour block of conservative programming, Morning Joe. Weirder still is that Morning Joe played lots of other clips from that rally, and even interviewed Bernie’s wife, Jane Sanders.

Even weirderer still, though, is that Fox News still hasn’t covered the story. It’s almost as if some of these people aren’t interested in a story that might make Bernie Sanders (who thanked Song at the rally, but tweeted disapproval of the “insensitive” remark the following morning) look bad, and therefore benefit Hillary Clinton.
