The country was shocked over the weekend when we woke up to more news of terror attacks on our soil. As police tried to sort out a stabbing spree in Minnesota, New York and New Jersey faced their own more devastating attacks.
Police were able to find pipe bombs in NJ, getting to them before they were detonated. But 29 victims in Chelsea, NY weren’t that lucky. An improvised explosive injured the civilians.
Already we are getting word that the attacks were motivated by ISIS and other radical Islamic terrorists. While the injuries were thankfully minor in this attacks, it’s more signs that this threat is not going away. Our leaders must fight back and bring an end to this ongoing problem.
But it looks like the mainstream media is doing their best to obscure news of these events.
CNN’s Jake Tapper asked New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on State of the Union on Sunday morning about the supposed contrast between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in their responses to the explosions Saturday in New York, editing out Clinton’s reference to “bombings” to create a false distinction.
Tapper cited Trump referring to a “bomb” in New York, then played a clip of Clinton criticizing him for saying that — leaving out Clinton’s reference, seconds before, to what she called “bombings.”
Now is the time for our leaders, regardless of politics, to work together to bring an end to radical Islamic terror. Clearly both Trump and Clinton acknowledged the attack in New York as a bombing. They both seem to be suggesting it was inspired by or orchestrated by the same enemies that have been threatening our country as of late.
So why did CNN edit out Clinton’s mention of a bomb?
Perhaps it was the fact that Crooked Hillary contradicted herself. She called it a bombing, but couldn’t stop herself from criticizing Trump. CNN noticed the mistake and made efforts to protect the democrat.
Is that the job of the media? To hide the truth to protect a politician? I thought the media was supposed to report all the facts, not just the ones that make Hillary Clinton look good.
At a time when terrorists mean us harm, the liberal media is playing games. They and the democrats can’t put aside their bias to work together to keep our country safe.
Is it any wonder why Clinton is slipping in the polls?
