A recipient of numerous awards, including two for excellence in media, says anyone who has issues with the mainstream media not covering certain topics is not alone.
David Barton of WallBuilders, "an organization dedicated to presenting America's forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which America was built," recently told American Family Radio's "Today's Issues" program that the media no longer exists as an institution.
"It's more an apologetics arm for the candidate; that's what they're really doing," he asserted. "They're evangelists for their candidate. They're no longer news reporters."
Barton pointed to a recent poll as an example of news outlets not covering certain topics to protect their candidate of choice. (See related One News Now story.)
"Media Research Center (MRC) polled only Democratic Party voters that voted in the election, and they asked them about eight media stories that were significant stories," said Barton. "Hunter Biden's story was significant, but it was not covered in the mainstream media. The claim of the Biden staffer, that Biden sexually assaulted her, was significant but not covered in the media. The turnaround in the economy in the third quarter was significant and not covered in the media. [They] went through eight stories like that, and the Democrat voters had not heard those eight stories."
According to MRC, one of every six Biden voters surveyed (17%) said they would have abandoned the Democrat nominee had they known about one or more of these stories.
"With 17%, you would not need a recount on anything, if the media had done any of its job on what they should have been doing in reporting the news," said Barton. "Reporters are not asking questions because they do not want to report those stories."
