"The media are now complicit in a blatant cover-up," Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell said Monday, blasting the media’s censorship of the developing Uranium scandal involving the Clintons and Obama Administration.
MRC research has revealed that CBS has devoted only 69 seconds to the bombshell story The Hill broke last Tuesday, October 17, while ABC and NBC have still yet to cover it. In that report, it was established that the FBI had found evidence of a Russian bribery plot before the Obama Administration’s controversial 2010 nuclear deal with Moscow.
Since the initial story was published, there have been several developments including new reports that the Clintons and the State Department were targets of a Russian influence campaign. According to The Hill, the FBI was aware of several Russian covert attempts to gather intelligence on the State Department and infiltrate the Clintons’ inner circle as early as 2009.
Reacting to the study's findings, Bozell declared the media have become "complicit" in the efforts to keep Americans from learning the news:
“It is nearly a week since reports broke of the new blockbuster development involving the Clintons, the Obama Administration and the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to Russia, yet CBS has devoted merely 69 seconds while ABC and NBC are completely MIA. This is a bombshell story of Watergate-like proportions. What will it take for the media to deem it newsworthy? This is beyond irresponsible journalism.
"The media are now complicit in a blatant cover-up. Their credibility continues to rapidly erode. These ‘journalists’ are on notice. We will continue to hammer them until they can no longer ignore this story. The media have failed the American people and must be held accountable.”
