After All Their Whining About Liberal Media Bias Against Recruiter Shootings, Fox News Declines To Cover Press Conference With Survivor

Reported by Ellen - June 9, 2009 -

There's been incessant whining on Fox News about the unbalanced media and White House attention paid to the Dr. George Tiller killing vs. the killing of Army recruiter Pvt. William Long (Hannity did it again tonight during his "Great American Panel" segment). But, as Think Progress reports, "When the lone survivor of the attack, Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula, spoke with reporters earlier today, only CNN and MSNBC carried the press conference live. Fox News never cut to the press conference, choosing instead to focus on Newt Gingrich’s criticisms of the Obama administration from last night’s congressional Republican fundraiser." Think Progress asks, "So the question is, will O’Reilly complain about his network’s failure to cover today’s presser? Or is Fox News above such complaints because its not part of the 'liberal media?'"
