We all know there’s bias in news reporting, but when it’s apparent right from the headline, you know there’s a problem. Check out how The Hill couched this piece on Rep. Frederica Wilson.

IFIFY: Dem lawmaker who attacked Kelly can’t return because people are mad at her for being an asshole. https://t.co/NqeWD0kGFS

“Dem lawmaker demonstrates how to use a dead soldier to self-promote and proclaim victim status.” https://t.co/375kPOHkxD

Irresponsible headline. NO "attack"
She's missed 19 votes since Monday, despite increased protections since Scalise shooting

Overtly biased headline aside, there’s no justification for death threats — assuming from the piece that Wilson has received death threats. From The Hill:
“She’s home,” Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) told the Miami Herald.
“I have not spoken with her about it, but I’ve heard that she’s received substantial death threats and I think she is doing everything she can to ratchet down and let some of us, including me, take over.”
The last time Wilson voted was on Oct. 12.
A source told the newspaper that “nothing else would keep her from voting,” adding that there are investigations into the threats she has faced.
The “rock star” is doing everything she can to ratchet down, everyone.
This is astonishingly bad reporting. Not only did they not even talk to her or staff to confirm, their lone source doesn't even allege it! https://t.co/55GQWdFT72

Lets see them. Lets hear them. Shes got messages on audio and text, email? Right? Strange since majority of folks in DC support dems. https://t.co/a2oUCJIhXh

Sure, the sourcing is weak to nonexistent, but Wilson’s story had to be told.
