Media Hypocrisy on Gianforte Alleged Assault; Ignore Democrat who Assaulted Cop

Timothy Birdnow

As the media continues to hyperventilate over the "body slam" of a British journalist who himself appears to have come close to assaulting the Republican candidate for Congress in Montana, there is a strange silence over a Democrat who has done worse, driving drunk and assaulting a police officer. Gateway Pundit has the scoop:!

"It is doubtful this candidate will receive the same attention for his crimes as Republican candidate Greg Giantorte received for body-slamming an aggressive reporter in Montana on Wednesday.

The Herald Review reported:

Mark Wicklund, a former Macon County Board member and Democratic candidate for the 13th District U.S. House seat, is facing charges after police said he crashed a vehicle while driving under the influence and subsequently struck an officer at the hospital.

Wicklund has been charged with DUI in the April 18 rollover vehicle crash and is free on $10,000 bond.

He also faces a preliminary charge of aggravated battery against a police officer, with a special prosecutor having 30 days to determine whether to file a formal charge. The Macon County State’s Attorney’s Office typically makes formal charging decisions, but State’s Attorney Jay Scott filed a motion Thursday seeking the special prosecutor due to Wicklund’s former position on the county board. Wicklund served on the board from 2010 to 2013."

End excerpt.

Strange how the media holds such double standards.

It should be pointed out that the Montana story has been unraveling as the witnesses didn't actually see what happened. The Buzzfeed reporter was not actually in the room, and the Fox News infobabe admitted she didn't really see what happened. Laura Ingraham made it quite plain that the "chokehold" couldn't have happend the way she described (Laura has studied martial arts for decades). Greg Gianforte may have pushed the Guardian reporter, but hardly "body slammed" him in the way described. And,, anyone who listens to the audio must note that the "body slammed" reporter does not sound injured or winded or in any way in pain. He says matter-of-factly "you broke my glasses" but there is no shortness of breath.

This is increasingly looking like fake news, if you ask me.

No wonder 65% of voters think the mainstream media is fake news.
