TGIF! On this episode of the NewsBusters Podcast, Senior Research Analyst Bill D’Agostino and I attempt to contain their rage over the liberal media’s morbid and disturbing coverage of the tragic OceanGate submersible disaster: chiding the CEO, who was on board, because he donated to Republicans. Meanwhile, one outlet threw up a countdown timer until they presumably ran out of breathable are.
First, we rip into the novel left-wing website referred to as The Latest Republic which, during a time when it was believed those on the submersible could possibly be rescued, thought it was essential for everybody to know that the CEO of the corporate, Stockton Rush had donated $1,500 to the campaign of a Texas Republican sooner or later in an 18-year period.
But author Daniel Strauss did have “a degree of caveat” that Mr. Rush was not a Republican megadonor.
Bill also sounds off on NewsNation and anchor Ashleigh Banfield for featuring a countdown timer displaying how much estimated time the passengers needed to live before they ran out of breathable oxygen.
And keeping with the opposite major story of the week, we do an update on the Hunter Biden plea deal and the media making him out the be the victim.
