CBS, NBC Ignore Nebraska Democrat Cheering He’s ‘Glad’ Scalise ‘Got Shot’

Montag claims he was taken out of context, but was fired anyway by the state’s party chair

 In Friday’s edition of liberal media double standards, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News saw no reason to cover new audio out of Nebraska in which a state Democratic Party official used an expletive to proclaim he’s “glad” Republican Congressman Steve Scalise (La.) “got shot” on June 14.

While CBS and NBC were caught up covering viral video of a dancing gorilla, ABC’s World News Tonight snuck in Montag’s ludicrous rhetoric in senior national correspondent Matt Gutman’s story about actor Johnny Depp’s jokes about presidential assassinations.

Gutman explained that Depp’s inexcusable jests came “just a week after that shooting at a Virginia baseball field” with “Representative Steve Scalise nearly killed, prompting calls from politicians on both sides of the aisle for more civility.”

One response to “CBS, NBC Ignore Nebraska Democrat Cheering He’s ‘Glad’ Scalise ‘Got Shot’

  1. Typical double standard. If a conservative, or a Republican, or a Christian leader had said this, it would be non stop news 24/7 for weeks and weeks. Since it was a Democrat, a leader of the Democrat party, a liberal, a leftist, then it is OK to take about murder and being glad someone had been shot.
