RNC Ignores Walker, Defends Bush In Complaint About Media Bias

The Republican National Committee (RNC) wants conservatives to know that it’s aware of the rampant liberal bias in the news media.

But the RNC seems to be angrier about the treatment Jeb Bush is getting than the typhoon of crap that Scott Walker is having thrown at him right now.

On the eve of the conservative CPAC gathering, RNC communications director Sean Spicer issued a press release demanding answers from “2016 Democrats” about the media’s left-wing slant.

“A review of news coverage from the last week using the TVEyes media monitoring database reveals that the controversies surrounding the Clinton Foundation’s foreign donations, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s plot to paint President Obama as anti-Semitic and anti-woman, and Vice President Biden’s Somali cab driver gaffe have generated just over 1,300 TV and radio hits combined,” Spicer wrote.

“Remarks made by Rudy Giuliani tallied over 8,600 hits Monday afternoon, and that number is still growing,” Spicer added.

So who is the real victim of this bias? Jeb Bush’s wife.

“Yet another example: Columba Bush was dragged into the media spotlight this week with a hit piece from the Washington Post, which consisted of old news from years past,” Spicer wrote. “Yet there was hardly a single headline over Bill Clinton’s travels with Jeffrey Epstein, something we learned about only recently.  Where are the articles on Clinton’s spending habits?”

We reported on Clinton’s travels with Epstein, but moving on.

No mention of Scott Walker. He also cited Politico with three different links.

Just to be clear, in case you don’t read liberal mainstream news articles or watch MSNBC (or have to for work…we won’t link to them here), the press is attacking Scott Walker right now like he deflated eleven footballs and fled the scene in a white Ford Branco chanting: “Screw the 47 Percent.”

In one of the most ridiculous media hit jobs of recent years, two Washington Post reporters asked Walker if he thinks President Obama is a Christian, as he claimed.

“I don’t know,” Walker said. “I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that. I’ve never asked him that. You’ve asked me to make statements about people that I haven’t had a conversation with about that. How [could] I say if I know either of you are a Christian?”

The media then flipped out and pronounced Walker disqualified from the race and also evil and everything else. Walker, to his credit, has pretty much shrugged it all off.

So why won’t Spicer weigh in to defend Walker from The Washington Post?
