Over on Tuesday's CBS Evening News, Elaine Quijano vaguely explained, "Union members from across Michigan and other states voiced their anger at the Michigan capital."

Yet, she made no mention of the assault on Crowder or the destruction of the Americans for Prosperity tent outside the Capitol.

On NBC's Nightly News, Brian Williams also ignored the actual violence. Instead, he worried, "The emotional fight over unions and American jobs in a place many thought it could never happen. Are we looking at a turning point for American workers?"

Rather than focus on the thug-like attacks that occurred, Williams reminisced about the importance of the unions: "A union job in the Detroit auto industry was a ticket to the American middle class, a good salary, benefits package, a piece of the American dream, a two-car garage and college education for the kids."

It wasn't until later in the segment that reporter Ron Mott noted, "...Under the watchful gaze of police, some in riot gear, protesters swarmed the governor's office building, finding the doors locked."

Despite being a four hour program, NBC's Today allowed two news briefs, a scant 28 seconds. Following the pattern, Natalie Morales skipped the violence. Good Morning America totally avoided the subject. CBS This Morning only mentioned it while playing a mocking clip of liberal comic Jon Stewart.

In total, out of nine and half hours of programming on Tuesday and Wednesday, the evening news and morning shows allowed nine minutes and 13 seconds of coverage. Eight minutes and one second came from the evening newscasts. Seventy two seconds came from the morning shows.

In their bid to protect 'the One' from any negative criticism, the LameSTream media has barely said anything against the VIOLENCE by UNION GOON SQUADS in Michigan.

Barely a squeak out of them.

It's not really strange, is it? THe press has so many tingles up its legs, it can't actually do journalism any more.
