Column: The Media's 'Spectacular' Stand Against Prisons

August 6th, 2021 5:59 AM

The “mainstream media” love to pretend that they represent the sensible middle ground of the ideological spectrum, but any extended look at their coverage reveals that they are incapable of finding an unsuitable extreme on the left.

New York City’s Democratic primary was an absolute debacle as, yet again, the board of election somehow included over 130,000 “sample test” ballots in their preliminary update. Seemingly because this embarrassment happened in their own backyard and to their party, the Wednesday evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC really didn’t want anything to do with the story. Instead, they…
