If you didn’t hear the news about an Iowa college professor who wants to "exact revenge" on evangelical Christians, there might be a reason.
English professor Jeff Klinzman has quit Kirkwood Community College, located in Cedar Rapids, after bragging about his membership in Antifa, saying he wanted to hit President Trump in the head with a baseball bat, and expressed rage against evangelical Christians.
Klinzman took a ton of heat online but there has been nary a word in the mainstream press.
Scott Whitlock of Media Research Center says he is not surprised.
“We've seen over and over again that they don't want to cover extremists on the left,” he says. “We only have to go back to the tea party to see how they went after conservative and tea party activists when there really wasn't anything there.”
And that's not the only story you're not hearing about from the liberal media. Credible allegations have surfaced that Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is having an affair with a married political consultant. She denies it but her name showed up in a divorce filing where it is claimed the affair ruined Tim and Beth Mynett's marriage.
Again, Whitlock is not surprised.
“They're not interested in going after what they perceive to be a progressive member of color and making her look bad,” he says of the media, “even if these are legitimate issues.”
The same media outlets pounced on stories of alleged affairs from years ago involving Donald Trump.
Whitlock notes the media promoted “The Squad” as the fresh face of the Democratic party --- but then came allegations of immigration fraud, accusations of anti-Semitism, and pushback from other Democrats.
“They just want to pretend,” he says, “like they've never heard of these people.”
