Networks Continue Rigging Election by Spiking Univision’s Investigative Report on Obama’s ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal

ALEXANDRIA, VA – In their continuing push to rig the election for Barack Obama, none of the three broadcast networks – ABC, CBS, or NBC – devoted a single second of coverage to Univision’s politically devastating  investigative report about the Obama Administration’s lethal gunwalking scandal, Fast and Furious. According to an analysis from the Media Research Center, since Univision’s report broke on Sunday, not one of the broadcast networks has covered it on either their morning or evening programs.  ABC’s decision to spike the news is particularly indefensible given that they have an excerpt of the Univision report on their official website.

Univision’s Gerardo Reyes and Santiago Wills reported “Indirectly, the United States government played a role in the massacre” of 14 Mexican teens in a one-story house by, “supplying some of the firearms uses by the cartel murders.” Univision discovered 57 additional guns provided by the ATF used by Mexican cartels.

Media Research President Brent Bozell reacts:

“This is another example of the media deliberately rigging this election. The Obama Administration provided guns to Mexican drug cartels, and the networks have the gall to ignore it. ABC, CBS and NBC have absolutely no excuse for spiking this explosive report, and are clearly doing so because it will damage Obama’s chances of re-election. Americans shouldn’t have to learn a second language to receive real investigative reporting.

“The deaths of 14 more Mexican youths and the discovery of 57 more guns because of this deadly Fast and Furious scandal is news any way you look at it, and the networks completely ignored it. ABC relegating this news to their website is a pathetic cop out.  It’s despicable that the networks simply will not Tell the Truth about Fast and Furious because they know that it will hurt their chosen candidate.”
