— Republicans R Evil (@CanProveIt) January 5, 2015
Everybody knows the media is not the voice of the voiceless, it's the voice of the corporations answerable to it's shareholders, and if there's one thing you can count on from our cable "news" hosts, it's that Republicans will never be called out for their false equivalencies and endless game of 'bothsiderism. Which is why cable and network news should be avoided by elected Democrats and candidates, and others who want to be informed instead of misinformed.
No one is surprised republicans are standing by Rep. Steve Scalise over revelations that the House's No. 3 Republican spoke to a white supremacist group 12 years ago. After all, this is how they have defined themselves. This is who and what they represent. They are who and what we thought they were.
There are two things I reluctantly give republicans credit for, they are loyal and unified in support of their party. They support their guys or gals no matter what. You won't see republicans breaking rank, reaching across the aisle, calling for bipartianship and compromise. No Sir.
So what does it say about Democrats and the corporate media's values when they won't call for the resignation of Steve Scalise ,but they called for the resignation of Anthony Weiner when someone hacked his Twitter account and leaked pictures of his male member?
There is more than a whiff of hypocrisy on both sides.
