Watching the various MSM news channels tonight, ALL of them are doing everything in their power to AVOID the Smollet story!!
They're pumping the Robert Kraft story, they're pumping the R. Kelley story, they're running for the hills on the Smollet story!!!!!!!!!
Following the arrest of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett for allegedly faking a hate crime attack -- which included a rope being placed around his neck -- Epix has reportedly pulled an episode of its documentary series “America Divided” that features the actor exploring the subject of hate crimes and lynching in the state of Tennessee.
As a result of the allegations and arrest, Smollett's episode of “America Divided” has now been cast in a significantly different light, its director said. “When the news initially came out, we were horrified by the story and for myself, it’s hard to get away from the coincidence,” series’ director Lucian Read told Variety. “Of course in this country, we believe in innocent until proven guilty, but assuming the allegations are true, I wonder whether coincidence is the right word — to take this truth about hate crimes and turn it into a fiction like that, it’s remarkable.” He continued: “It seems both an incredible coincidence and also proof of the terrible things that happen in this country.”
Jussie Smollett travels to Tennesse to witness the movement to bring down Confederate monuments.

It is starting to look like jussie will indeed make his way back into the msm front row.
Buckle up folks cause police departments do not fall easily.
Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-Ill. and Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., are sponsoring the legislation, Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Harassment Act. GOP co-sponsors are Sen. Lindsey Graham and Reps. Walter Jones, R-N.C., and Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y.
“The problem is there aren't that many hate crimes occurring in the country,” the pundit said Friday on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “So, instead, reporters take their numbers wholesale from partisan activists who pose as researchers, or from wholly fraudulent organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center. These groups use moral panics to gin up fund-raising, they get rich doing it, so, of course, they continue.”

This thread is straight up silly. The story hasn't had any new developments, and yeah, Robert Kraft solicitating prostitutes is a bigger story and ISN'T fake, they have him on camera. Of course the media is going to be ALL over that,the NE Patriots are hated more than any team in the country. AKA huge ratings.
They aren't ignoring it, life goes on, not really much to talk about until he has his day in court and they finish investigating. They have discussed it to death over the past 10 days. It's over. The media is a business and they report what will get the highest ratings. Rehashing this same story ad nausium will only bore people.
Here's the real question. Why not more coverage on the white nationalist coast guard guy that was planning on going on a killing spree taking out Dem politicians and media casters on conservative media (FOX)? Funny how that is practically ignored but all Fox cares about is whining about a liar who faked a crime but wasn't killing people.
