It is WRONG to disrespect Gold Star parents
(who help the media shill for the Democrats).
Have you heard that Trump had harsh words to say about the parents of Captain Humayun Khan? Of course, you have. Wall-to-wall coverage of that.
Have you heard that Pat Smith had harsh words to say about Hillary Clinton? Maybe not.
And there’s a reason for that. We’ve got a breakdown of just how much TV coverage was given to each story from July 19th to present. Can you guess who came out on top?
While all the grieving parents deserve sympathy, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening and morning shows seemed to only care about the parents that showed up at the Democratic Convention. Khizr Khan and his wife Ghazla’s DNC appearance earned 55 minutes, 13 seconds of Big Three network coverage, nearly 50 times more than Pat Smith, whose RNC speech honoring her son earned just 70 seconds of airtime.
This is a textbook case of bias-by-agenda: One of these stories (the Khan story) matched the Democratic agenda, and the partisan media couldn’t push it hard enough. The other (the Smith story) reflected poorly on the Democratic nominee, so it was barely mentioned.
