Establishment media outlets including MSNBC, CNN, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times killed five stories this week.

Though they heavily covered President Trump’s first address before the United Nations, and all of his following tweets, the devoted exactly zero articles or segments to the following news stories.

Keith Ellison Says Illegal Immigration Opponents are more or less Nazis  

Minnesota Rep. and Democratic National Committee (DNC) deputy chair Keith Ellison, whom one prominent Democratic donor has said is “clearly an anti-Semite,” drew an equivalency between opponents of illegal immigration and Nazis. “If you ask yourself, ‘What would I do if I was a Gentile in 1941 if my Jewish neighbors were under attack by the Nazis? Would I give them sanctuary?'” Ellison asked. The video came out on Tuesday but by Friday evening, establishment media outlets had combined for zero articles noting his comments. Ellison, who has tried to distance himself from pass associations with the Nation of Islam, has previously claimed that American Jews are “mobilized” by Israel to “do it’s bidding in America.” MSNBC, CNN, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times have yet to cover this story.

Shocking New Allegations in Imran Awan Case

The scandal around the House Democrat IT staffer keeps growing. Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. As the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Luke Rosiak reported on Tuesday, police reports say Imran Awan allegedly abused three different Muslim women, with one of them telling police she felt like his “slave,” and another saying Awan kept her “in captivity.” Officers found the third woman bloodied and saying she just wanted to leave. Establishment media outlets have largely remained on the sidelines throughout the Awan scandal’s development, and they continued that trend this week. None of them covered the shocking new allegations against Awan. Read the full story here.

Maxine Waters’ Bizarre Impeachment Comments (Part 1):

Two stories broke this past week regarding California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters, whose crusade to get Trump impeached has received positive coverage in the media. On Wednesday, news broke that Waters had turned a eulogy for deceased comedian Dick Gregory last weekend into a lecture about her efforts to impeach the president. The congresswoman bragged to the funeral attendees that she’s “cleaning out the White House” and “not going to take what is happening in this country” and railed against the president as “a dishonorable human being who has the alt-right, and the KKK and everybody else inside his Cabinet.” (It’s unclear which cabinet members Waters thinks are members of the alt-right and KKK.)

Maxine Waters’ Bizarre Impeachment Comments (Part 2)

On Thursday, Waters suggested that Democrats are willing to invent a reason to impeach Trump, before guaranteeing that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Waters cited no proof of collusion in her claims. She later brushed off questions about whether the president has committed impeach-worthy offenses. “Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is.”

“There is no law that can dictate impeachment,” she stated. “What the Constitution says is high crimes and misdemeanors, and we define that. Bill Clinton got impeached because he lied.” Establishment media outlets refused to cover either Waters story this week.

Jimmy Kimmel wants to ‘pound’ a Fox News Host

The media gave positive coverage to Jimmy Kimmel this week for using his show to emotionally lobby against the Republican Graham-Cassidy health care bill. Kimmel threatened to “pound” Fox News host Brian Kilmeade over the bill, calling Kilmeade a “phony little creep.” On Thursday night, Kimmel called Louisiana Republican Sen. Brian Kennedy an “inbred” over his health care position. The establishment media ignored both details.
