The corporate press is working overtime to help the Democrats win in November.
CNN has been one of the worst offenders of biased reporting in the Trump era.
Now CNN embarrassed themselves by downplaying one Democrat sex scandal.
Republican Thom Tillis and Democrat challenger Cal Cunningham are in a critical race for a senate seat in the battleground state of North Carolina.
However, Cunningham now finds himself caught in a damaging sex scandal.
When the story first started coming out, CNN reporter Chris Cillizza was quick to come to Cunningham’s rescue and downplayed the incident.
“The messages are far from tawdry — they read like 1950s letters — but the very fact that they exist does throw a major X factor into the Senate race…Those twin developments are too recent to be measured in credible polling just yet. In one good sign for Cunningham, however, there has yet to be any sort of hue and cry from his fellow Democrats for him to leave the race amid this scandal.”
But as it turns out, Cunningham did more than send a few “far from tawdry” text messages – he was actually having an affair with the wife of 19-year Army veteran, Jeremy Todd.
Needless to say, Todd believes Cunningham’s actions make him unfit for office:
“Mr. Cunningham chose to repeatedly engage in activities that would hurt his family and a fellow junior officer and veteran…If elected, I can only imagine how misplaced his judgment would be for the people he’s charged to represent…I firmly believe Mr. Cunningham should drop out of the Senate race and ask that his behavior and actions be reviewed under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.”
But Democrats will most certainly circle the wagons around Cunningham, especially with a critical Senate seat up for grabs.
Democrats are also propping up disgraced Congresswoman Katie Hill who was caught having an affair with both a male and female staffer.
Hollywood is actually producing a film about Hill’s scandal (with the nefarious Republicans and right-wing media outlets as the villains) and Hill is attached to produce the project.
Meanwhile, her staff is disgusted by the deal and former staffers logged into her dormant congressional account to decry the producers of the film.
With every senate seat so crucial, the Democrats have no choice but to build a wall around Cunningham.
Trump has already appointed three Supreme Court justices, so if the Republicans maintain the senate, all the Democrats’ plans for nudging the judiciary to the left will be on hold.
But the Democrats have a long track record of overlooking sex scandals for their politicians and Cunningham will be no different.
