When Democrats Aren’t Newsworthy

Brent Bozell’s latest column has the Nexis low-down on the networks ignoring Democratic ethics scandals, even as they hit the front page of the Washington Post. Last week, the Post reported that Vernon Jackson, a business associate of Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson, pled guilty of bribery during the years 2001 to 2005, the second person to plead guilty to charges of bribing the eight-term Democrat. Coverage on ABC, CBS, and NBC morning or evening news shows? Zip.

The Washington Post also reported on its front page the tale of Alan Mollohan,  the ranking Democrat on the House Ethics Committee. After the Post reported a complaint filed by the conservative National Legal and Policy Center – showing Mollohan suddenly became a real-estate multi-millionaire at the same time his financial helpers were getting federal grants he secured – he temporarily resigned his committee post to fight the charges. Even editorials in the Post and the New York Times insisted he should step down. ABC, CBS, and NBC coverage? Nothing.
