Commenting on the fact that at least two FBI sources have disclosed that a criminal indictment of the Clinton Foundation is likely and yet the networks ABC, CBS, and NBC are not reporting this news confirms there is a "media cover-up," a network "blackout," said Media Research Center Brent Bozell in a statement on Thursday.

“The networks’ blackout of the news that two FBI sources said there will ‘likely’ be indictments related to the Clinton Foundation is beyond the pale," said Bozell.

"If there was a report about likely indictments related to the Trump Foundation, there would be an immediate flash mob of reporters camped in front of Trump Tower breaking away from regularly scheduled programming and offering play-by-play commentary," he said.  

"No one in the so-called ‘news’ media can deny this without lying through his/her teeth," said Bozell, whose media watchdog group has been documenting, exposing, and neutralizing liberal media bias for 29-plus years.

"The stench of corruption between the Justice Department, the State Department and the Clinton Foundation machine and now the leftist ‘news’ media is overpowering," he said.  "This is a media cover-up."

Ending his statement, Bozell said, “We will report developments on this continuing cover-up every hour from here on out. We want America to know the role the ‘news’ media are playing in what appears now to be a criminal conspiracy. "

On Wednesday, Fox News' Special Report With Bret Baier reported on the likely indictment stemming from the FBI's investigation of the Clinton Foundation. In his report, Baier said, "Here's the deal: We talked to two separate sources with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations. One: The Clinton Foundation investigation is far more expansive than anybody has reported so far... Several offices separately have been doing their own investigations. 

"... Finally, we learned there is a confidence from these sources that her server had been hacked. And that it was a 99% accuracy that it had been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies, and that things had been taken from that...

"... I pressed again and again on this very issue... The investigations will continue, there is a lot of evidence. And barring some obstruction in some way, they believe they will continue to likely an indictment."
