Democratic Senator on trial for corruption. Is network news deliberately ignoring it?

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Bob Menendez is a Democratic Senator from New Jersey who is currently on trial for 12 corruption related counts including six counts of bribery and three counts of honest services fraud. But have you heard of this case? 

Whether it's the Liberals north of the border or the Democrats down south, the mainstream media will always cover for their political favourites.

Watch as I outline the facts and details of the case and how Menendez and his longtime friend and donor Dr. Melgen, wound up being indicted in 2015.

I'll also show you why Harvard Law Professor Allan Dershowitz thinks the case will be difficult to prosecute and will end up in an acquittal.

Menendez has always maintained his innocence telling reporters after day one of the trial, “I have committed my entire adult life, since I was 19, to fighting for the people of New Jersey. Never, not once, not once have I dishonoured my public office."

If the coverage does pick up, will it be honest coverage?

If the recent New York Times article on “the senator” that failed to mention that he was a democratic senator is any indication. don’t bet on it.

This is a major case of alleged corruption by one of the United States’ top elected officials, the first Senator in 36 years to go on trial for corruption, and yet the media coverage does not reflect the gravity of the case.

And according to analysis from Media Research Centre, the major networks are still keeping this case off their airwaves as the trial begins.

Andy Neimers,

I am only referring to Ezra’s comments regarding the reboot for The Rebel and his claim that there will be more editorial control here. This is the opposite of that.

Jack Carter; Kinda like no one going over CBC Market Place racist teeshirt scam?
commented 2017-09-08 01:17:11 -0400
Jack Carter so who goes through CBC stories? How about the Rob Ford 911 call? LIE! The troop torture slander! LIE! The attack on the Jewish family in Calgary-NOT EVEN MENTIONED! LMAO! And please tell me why the rabid fanatics stalking Rob Ford are professional media and the Rebel is not.

Jack Carter yeah sure it has, without much mention of his party and nowhere near the amount of coverage had it been a republican. And you know it. If you disagree then tell me why the Duffy trial had 3 CBC trucks and the MSM all over it for months and the Levin trial had only the Rebel and one other independent covering it! Or do you think the possibility of conflict of interest is worse than destroying childrens lives by producing child porn , watching it and sharing it around?

Now that’s a very telling comment on your part Jack Carter… “no one actually going over these stories from Rebel contributors” quote, unquote… So who is the “guru” going to be a la Google – the people “who know what’s best good for us”?… As for doing “research”, that is an assumption again on your part… Maybe, just maybe, I may be an old 60s and 70s era retired journalist that does reams of research before tapping away on my keyboard?… Your presumptions are very much of the mindset of today’s detractors who just can’t read a contrary opinion before going ballistic….

I see The Rebel reboot was just bullshit and there is no one actually going over these stories from Rebel contributors or doing some research first BEFORE they get posted.

What a joke.

It’s been all over the news Chris – what the fuck are you talking about?
commented 2017-09-07 22:12:43 -0400
The MSM does not function as a public information vehicle, it is a paid PR propagabdistso, No there is an obvious reason damaging news for the globalist swam never gets out – like today – the biggest news in this cycle is that DW Shultz’s computer was deliberately given to police and accompanying letters sent to DOJ by the ex DNC IT worker who was trying to escape to Pakistan before the DNC crime scandal blew up – the MSM have sat on this story for 3 months.

Ezra..Can you get onto 60 Minutes? Steve Bannon is..Hopefully it will air uncut..

More suppression of facts by msm, look at what they buried re: Hillary. Lack of coverage re: charges against Democratic Senator Menendez is not surprising.

Christopher, please keep us posted.

In fairness to the MSM, covering a story about a corrupt Democrat would be like covering a story about a rabid dog biting a man. Same as in Canada and covering the corruption of the Liberals. Just the same old story over and over again.

But I am glad Rebel is not bored with the old story and keeps covering it.
