Democrat corruption and censorship has infiltrated every area of our human existence. Some of it is mandated, some of it is requested, some of it is volunteered by third parties who agree with the Democrat party’s agenda and censorship techniques. Their allies in assisting them to keep their political power grows every day and now C-SPAN looks like they are one of their allies as well.
You would think it would be hard for C-SPAN to be political because they just air reality – what actually happens. They show House and Senate proceedings. They show what the government is up to. Regardless of any commentary offered by the hosts or callers, they show a live or recorded version of the truth.
But when C-SPAN VOLUNTARILY chooses what to show and what NOT to show because of their own opinions, then we have big problems.
The American Wire News reports that C-SPAN didn’t air a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing on the border crisis in Yuma, Arizona because the Democrats didn’t show up and C-SPAN didn’t think it was fair to just show the Republicans talking about it.
Biz Pac Review reported that not one Democrat decided to show up at the hearing despite being given a week’s notice. And because of that, C-SPAN decided not to air the hearing.
Had C-SPAN covered what was going on, the Democrats would have heard that the CEO of the only hospital in the Yuma region is on the brink of financial collapse because of the spending to provide care for illegal aliens (most of it for pregnant women) while getting no reimbursement for services.
The Democrats would have also heard from the Yuma Sheriff about the apprehensions of illegal aliens in the area going up from 40 a day to 1000 a day over the course of two years (hm… who has been president for two years??!).
C-SPAN’s mission is supposed to be to “provide “access to the live gavel-to-gavel proceedings of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and to other forums where public policy is discussed, debated and decided – all without editing, commentary or analysis and with a balanced presentation of points of view.”
BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT THEY DID IN THIS CASE. They just kept it off the air.
And if there reason is that it wasn’t “balanced,” well that was by CHOICE of the Democrats and that information should have been aired as well.
C-SPAN’S Congressional Editor Robb Harleston told Townhall’s Julio Rosas, “We’re concerned about the absence of [Democrat] members of the hearing.”
He went on to say “If there’s any concrete decisions regarding Democratic involvement, we might reconsider.”
Really? That’s all it takes to get C-SPAN to not air something the Democrats don’t want them to show – they just don’t show up? Well, holy moly, that was easy enough.
If the Democrats didn’t show up for a vote on a declaration of war, would C-SPAN refuse to cover that as well? And they didn’t seem to care that the January 6th committee was totally UNBALANCED and only had two Republicans (Trump haters) on the committee. That claptrap still aired on C-SPAN all the time.
Harleston also claimed that there was a manpower issue. That’s totally not PC at all. What about Womanpower?? He continued to defend his choice to do a blackout on the hearing to help out his Democrats. He said, “without a balanced member representation, it’s been decided we’re going to pass on coverage.”
Pass on coverage.
That’s nice. Sounds like another media company giving an in-kind donation to the Democratic Party that won’t be documented.
