After a year, MSM picks up Awan story … After about a year of the story of the Awan brothers percolating in conservative media, all it took was Imran Awan’s arrest for the story to finally break through in the MSM. Except, well, now they are running cover and going with Awan’s lawyer’s story: that this is just anti-Muslim bias (PDF).
About that lawyer … Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel broke the news that Awan’s attorney is a major Clinton Inc. ally. Reading Schachtel’s story, the first thing that came to mind was Tom Hagen — in particular, this scene. After all, the Clintons probably “have newspaper people on the payroll.”
MSM coverage … CNN focuses on the recent bank fraud charges, but at least it says the Awan brothers have been under investigation for a while. There is no mention of Awan having access to some of the nation’s most sensitive information. NBC News’ story basically reads like his lawyer’s press release. CBS News also stuck strictly to the mortgage fraud line. But hey, at least there is some coverage, right? Imagine if this were Paul Ryan’s staffer fleeing the country and getting arrested.
How do we stop the mainstream media from warping the national narrative? We push back together. With the truth. Be the first to receive CRTV’s free weapon against the worst the media has to offer. Introducing WTF MSM!?
