Media Blackout: ABC, NBC Still Refuse to Air Single Word About Dakota Access Protests
According to media watchdog Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), ABC and NBC News have yet to broadcast a single mention of the DAPL protests, which have brought the $3.8 billion oil pipeline project at the Sacred Stone Camp in North Dakota to a halt.
FAIR searched the Nexis news database, which tracks media coverage, and found these so-called news outlets havent covered the DAPL controversy at all. FAIR noted that by September 7th, CBS, alone of the three major broadcast news networks, had aired anything on Dakota Access and that was a lone report on CBS Morning News (9/5/16), amounting to 48 words read at 4 oclock in the morning.
We Report, you obey!
Liberal media, my fucking asscrack. The more this shit happens, the more Roddy Piper and John Carpenter were right:
Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC has given the pipeline extensive coverage. But he is the only one I have really seen do something about the coverage.
On Thursday, I think. They only presented a hint of the disgusting tactics used by the nonlocal bands of police.
when the brutal removal of the activists took place, they went silent..
