The corruption trial for New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez is scheduled to begin next week. The mainstream media, with some exceptions, have been criticized for largely avoiding or burying the always evolving story, but a Washington Post investigative reporter explained why it hasn’t landed in the MSMs “top five”:
The fact that a U.S. senator's bribery trial is not even a top 5 story in the news cycle tells you *just* how crazy this year has been. https://t.co/3LpNKRwrfz

Because of the crazy news cycle?

A lot of people have another theory why the Menendez story might not be the highest of MSM priorities:
Or that he’s a Democrat.

Be serious. Only reason it isn't #1 is the D next to his name.

And that he’s a Democrat. https://t.co/y9KED0iN98

Any indication which party would be embarrassed by this trial? Might be worth noting. https://t.co/e1VO8BEwAm

Or it's because he has a D next to his name. But WaPo gonna WaPo.

LOL. They're so deluded that even when discussing an obvious instances of media bias, it doesn't even occur to them that it's bias. https://t.co/u5GstGGtZT

@CillizzaCNN Nah. It just tells you he's a Democrat Senator.

Had this been a GOP senator MSM would have had it everywhere & in all the newspapers across the country.

It's not the news cycle that's crazy; it's the news media. https://t.co/cxKEyhlWl6
