NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Rittenhouse-Obsessed Networks Are Bored by Smollett Trial


On the latest NewsBusters Podcast, we discuss how the broadcast networks have been reluctant and slow in covering the Jussie Smollett trial. ABC’s been almost non-existent after energetically boosting Smollett’s hate-crime hoax two years ago. They were much more motivated to cover the Kyle Rittenhouse self-defense trial, and unlike this trial, that had cameras in the courtroom. But this one has a black, gay, Trump-hating celebrity. 

CNN found another problem in Don Lemon texting Smollett about how the cops weren’t believing his story. After Smollett blabbed about this during time as a witness, CNN ignored it entirely. One might think that after all of Chris Cuomo’s off-camera shenanigans attempting to help his brother the sexual harasser, Lemon might offer a little transparency for viewers about his personal friendship and texts with Smollett.

On a similar front, we discuss how a front-page Washington Post story on how former employees of Kamala Harris suggested as a boss, she was a soul-destroying bully was completely ignored by ABC, CBS, and NBC.
