Media Blacks Out Coverage of Suit Against the DNC

As reporters and pundits push Trump narratives, the Democratic Party gets a whopping pass

Excerpt:

While the mainstream media have been doggedly and extensively covering any narrative that casts President Donald Trump in a negative light, there is one story the reporters and pundits largely have spurned: the lawsuit looming over the Democratic National Committee, alleging it favored former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

The DNC came under fire in June 2016 after damning evidence surfaced from documents leaked by the hacker Guccifer 2.0 showing that the party and DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz heavily favored Clinton over Sanders.

A class-action suit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida in October by residents of 45 states against both the committee and Wasserman Schultz for “intentional, willful, wanton, and malicious” conduct in violating Article 5, Section 4 of the DNC Charter.

They represent three classes of plaintiffs: donors to the DNC, donors to the Bernie Sanders campaign, and all registered Democrats — and they want their money back.

On April 25, the court held a hearing on a motion to dismiss, with the DNC’s lawyers arguing that the party has every right to pick candidates in back rooms.

“There’s no contractual obligation here … it’s not a situation where a promise has been made that is an enforceable promise,” DNC lawyer Bruce Spiva argued in court.

The major news organizations shunned the controversy and allowed it to slip into near-oblivion as they hammered President Trump.

An article published Saturday on the liberal progressive website Salon notes that the mainstream media "almost completely blacked out coverage of this lawsuit."

A writer for the Observer wrote on Monday: "In large part, the mainstream media [have] not covered the lawsuit in the six months between the court's initial hearings in October 2016 to its latest hearing on April 25, 2017."
