In the 1980s and ’90s, journalists passed along expert predictions of the world as they thought it would be in 2015.

Nearly four years ago, the media establishment swiftly and baselessly linked the Tea Party to the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. But after this weekend’s murder of two New York City police officers, by a gunman who used the hashtag #ShootThePolice, there was no rush at ABC, CBS or NBC to condemn anti-police protesters who have employed the chant: “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now.”

This week, journalists seize on a partisan Senate Democratic report to scold the CIA for its conduct of the War on Terror during the Bush era, but deny there's any news value in Jonathan Gruber's admission that ObamaCare was sold using duplicitous tactics, calling it a "nothing burger."

December 9, 2014, 8:55 AM EST

It’s been a month since video surfaced of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber mocking the “stupidity” of voters and boasting about the duplicitous ways liberals pushed through the far-reaching health care law in 2010, and NBC Nightly News remains the only network evening news broadcast to have completely ignored the story. Here are ten stories — some goofy, some self-promotional, but all of which, unlike the Gruber videos, were deemed worthy of coverage by NBC Nightly News during the past 30 days.

On Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News — a broadcast that has yet to mention the infamous comments of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber — anchor Brian Williams conceded his profession “might be guilty” of bias in its coverage, but his admission had nothing to do with liberals and conservatives. Instead, Nightly News devoted nearly two minutes (1 minute, 56 seconds) to a study showing media bias in favor of — wait for it — dog stories. “On this one we just might be guilty,” Williams confessed.
