Media Misses: Media Ignores Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Comments

from Daily Signal,

Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, stirred controversy again with an anti-Semitic tirade last week, declaring to a packed audience, “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country [Israel].” According to the Media Research Center, “CBS This Morning” devoted 30 seconds of air time to Omar’s comments Monday—while the other two broadcast networks didn’t cover it at all. Many in the media have downplayed this incident. ABC News even called it a, quote, “family feud.” And others in the media seem to be making excuses for the representative.

Liberal economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman actually argued that he’s not worried about anti-Semitism when it comes from the left, and insinuated that only right-wing anti-Semitism is bad.

Amazingly, bigotry is now excused as long as you are on one side of the political spectrum.
