A Democrat’s troubling past was brought back into the public’s view by the mainstream media.
They’re apologizing like crazy for hurting one of their own.
That’s because this top Democrat hit the roof when a scandal from his past came back to bite him.
The mainstream media doesn’t play fair.
The way they cover for Democrats when they’re caught in a scandal is appalling.
If Virginia Governor Ralph Northam had been a Republican the media never would have let his racist behavior go, and they would have insisted that Republicans were all racists unless they demanded that he resign.
Ralph Northam had a picture of himself in blackface standing next to a man in a Ku Klux Klan costume in his medical yearbook.
After it came out Northam groveled to the media “I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now. … That photo and the racist and offensive attitudes it represents does not reflect that person I am today. … I am deeply sorry.”
He then withdrew his apology and said it wasn’t him in the photo.
The Democrats might have insisted he step down but his lieutenant governor was facing several serious allegations of sexual assault.
And the media let him get away because if they insisted that he step down they might end up with a Republican governor if they pushed the matter any further.
After an official briefing NBC-4 in Washington, D.C posted on Twitter.
“In a striking moment, Gov. Ralph Northam put on his own black face mask. He urged every Virginian to do the same.”
The post went viral, as social media found the unintentional reference hilarious.
Ralph Northam would rather people forgot about his past misconduct.
NBC-4 in Washington issued an apology for their post.
According to The Daily Wire:
A TV station in Virginia was left red-faced after posting an unintentionally problematic tweet.
At a Monday press conference to talk about the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Ralph Northam decided to demonstrate to Virginians exactly how to wear a protective mask.
“In a striking moment, Gov. Ralph Northam put on his own black face mask. He urged every Virginian to do the same,” NBC-4 in Washington, D.C., wrote on Twitter.
The TV station quickly pulled down the post. “Correction: We made a misjudgment in a tweet about Gov. Northam’s face mask. We sincerely apologize for the error,” the station tweeted.
Democrats are treated with such great respect that the media apologize when they accidentally bring up Northam’s racist past.
The double standard that they have is more than just unintentional bias. They’re trying to shape people’s perceptions.
A major news network had to post a retraction when the story first broke because they originally claimed that Northam was a Republican.
The mainstream media have lost their way and the only time the news station was relevant this week it was by mistake.
The mainstream media have become a joke but at least this week they have us all laughing.
