Its been over 24 hours since a sex scandal involving a congresswoman with powerful house committee roles broke, including not only abundant proof of the story and unethical conduct but also salacious photographs making it completely undeniable.
So far there have been zero articles published about it in the mainstream 'non-rightwing' media. Doing a quick google search, the only sources seem to be tabloids & right-wing outlets. Redstate, Wash. Examiner, CA Globe, Breitbart, PJMedia, BigLeaguePolitics, TruePundit, hell I might as well list the AR-15 forums. A who's who of the right-wing echosphere. Not a single story from ABC, NBC, CNN, PBS, BBC, NYT, WaPo, etc etc. Not even the WSJ or Fox.

In any other era, this scoop would be headline news and a national story, with a pack of journalists descending on her like vultures. Who doesn't love a good old fashioned sex scandal with a politician, both sexual and ethical improprieties?
Today there is zero coverage. A complete mainstream media blackout, despite the proof being right out in the open.

This is the state of the media today. Its pure propaganda. It has lost all credibility and all pretense of journalistic integrity. Its up to the public to seek out tabloids that publish exploitative nudie pics just to be informed about scandals that damage the left, because you'll never hear about them otherwise. Of course, if Trump dick pics were out, it would be literally projected onto the side of buildings.


who is the complainant ? where is the trial ?

This conclusion doesn't follow from the premise.

And you don't actually believe it, because the second a mainstream media report is convenient for Trump, you're the first to post it. Like Vogel's reporting that Ukraine didn't know aid was being withheld.

And what, we're supposed to choose between never criticizing society, or living as ascetic hermits in caves who abstain from all society? I will post whats reported by the MSM because its what we've got for a media, because its the message thats going to reach millions of others. I can disagree with the state of it and still utilize it, because its all we've got. Someone who opposes our world's burning of fossil fuels can still drive a car.

Can you really defend the fact that a bombshell story like this dropped and had abundant verifiable evidence right out in the open, yet not a single outlet is covering it? I am quite sure journalists all throughout the mainstream media are fully aware of the story- that nude picture of Rep. Hill is being spammed on twitter. Like the stories about Ilhan Omar, the media is consciously choosing not to report on this. Except at least in that case, the evidence was mundane at face value, demonstrating only one element of the story at a time and requiring multiple pieces to prove anything. In this case, they have a picture of her naked brushing the hair of a 22 year old staffer, and supposedly have chosen not to publish even more salacious materials

If we had a picture of Trump naked with a young staffer on his payroll, you better believe it would be the #1 story on the news for the next month and we'd be getting 24/7 updates from CNN

How is any type of milk supposed to feed the growing world population when a majority of them cant properly digest milk to begin with?


Well, this isn't a lactose based product, like milk is. They are just comparing it to milk for food value purposes.

Just like with Omar, the LAW would be the "complainant". ANY person or institution, can bring the suit. And at least in the divorce case, the original husband would be the "complainant".

How do you come to this conclusion? He gave a detailed account of a Congresswoman engaged in unbecoming conduct and it's quite simple to Google news of Katie Hill and find out there are no MSM sources for recent news on her. A newsworthy item blacked out by the supposed press.

clearly there are more important stories to be covered, they can't afford to waste reporting time on every little sex scandal with congresswomen in top committee roles

18. (a) A Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner may not engage in a sexual relationship with any employee of the House who works under the supervision of the Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner, or who is an employee of a committee on which the Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner serves. This paragraph does not apply with respect to any relationship between two people who are married to each other.


see that's the kind of rule I would have learned existed from journalists with integrity. Instead I only learned that rule existed in writing because of some random twitter comment buried under nudie pics of Katie Hill

You've obviously forgotten that it's the Democrats that run around suing everyone for daring to breathe, etc.
