For the past week, both the Sotloff and Foley families have been very vocal in their criticism of the Obama administration’s handling of their sons’ kidnappings.
Various members of the families have appeared on Fox, CNN, and CBS to make shocking allegations about how they were treated by the Obama White House while their sons were being held.
Incredibly, according to Newsbusters, neither NBC and ABC have seen fit to cover the bereaved families’ stories.
On September 9, Barfi appeared on CNN’s AC 360 and told host Anderson Cooper: “We know that the intelligence community and the White House are enmeshed in the larger game of bureaucratic infighting and Jim and Steve are pawns in that game…”
CBS This Morning covered Barfi’s remarks the next morning, while NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America skipped the story.On September 12, This Morning covered another CNN interview with Foley’s mother, who denounced the Obama administration’s “appalling” response to her son’s kidnapping.Again, NBC and ABC were silent on the matter.
It can not be said often enough – the media show their bias most often in what they choose not to cover.
