Earlier this week, in the hit piece to end all hit pieces, NBC News ran with a scoop about Sen. Mitch McConnell’s great-great-grandfathers owning slaves. Not surprisingly, the story was then picked up by the Washington Post and was then used by the Left to call McConnell a hypocrite in opposing reparations and of course to imply that he must be a racist. Later on, Brit Hume spotted a story that must have escaped the ever vigilant investigative journalists at NBC News:
I wonder how NBC News missed this in what I’m sure was a wide-ranging investigation. https://t.co/TqkV4WnkDN

Gee, this story must not have been deemed scoop-worthy by the mainstream media:

No giant BREAKING NEWS treatment from NBC News with a WaPo follow-up for that story? We’re totally shocked.

They probably didn’t miss it; they just didn’t report it.

Will she be held to the same scrutiny that she demands of others?

Brace for more selective investigative journalism:
Not sure the Dems want to get into looking at Everyone’s Ancestry History, quite possibly lot of skeletons out there. https://t.co/Go6lGh4ZmG

Perhaps the mainstream media will suddenly want to stop taking that approach before too long.
