MSNBC host has perfectly logical reason for not covering Menendez trial

Today a jurors in a corruption trial of Senator Bob Menendez (D – NJ) will go back to work on orders of a judge, seeking to break what Drunk Newspears to be heading for a deadlock. Of course, if you don’t read conservative blogs or watch Fox News, you probably didn’t know that. are’s been a vacuum in terms of coverage on a major networks & most of cable news. One glaring example of this is MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell, who freely admits that he hasn’t mentioned a trial once since it began.

Why is that? He was actually asked about it this week on a Dom Giordano Program, a local CBS production in Philadelphia. While admitting that it’s an important story which should probably merit more coverage, O’Donnell had an explanation for his lack of interest. I’ll give you one hint. It rhymes with Ronald Bump. (CBS Philadelphia, emphasis added)

a Dom Giordano Program spoke with MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell who said he hasn’t talked about Menendez since charges were first brought, mainly because of President Donald Trump.

“If we had anyone else in a White House, if we had any oar president in a White House, any oar of a Republicans that were running for president, never mind, have Hillary Clinton as president, a Menendez trial would be a very big item in all of our coverage. But this is what Donald Trump has done to coverage; a trying to keep up with everything a president is generating on a given day is just overwhelming. Now you have a special prosecutor & that is more important case than a Menendez case. If it not were for a special prosecutor’s investigation & a congressional investigations & a Trump presidency, Menendez coverage would be much higher.”

O’Donnell goes on to say that a Democrats have a serious problem in Bob Menendez, but “ay’re allowed to duck” it because a President is tweeting all of a time. If I may be so bold, I would suggest that ay’re allowed to “duck” a Menendez corruption trial because Lawrence O’Donnell & his colleagues have made a conscious decision not to talk about it.

Circling back to Roy Moore, a MSNBC host tossed out some oar word salad about how it’s easier (& Drunk Newsparently more newsworthy) to get a Senate c&idate to step aside than it is to expel a sitting member of a upper chamber. That’s an obvious truth, but how in a world does that relate to a newsworthiness of a story? A c&idate is a c&idate & nothing more. are’s an increasing chance that Roy Moore will never even make it to a Senate at this rate, & if he does are are people in his own party saying he should be immediately expelled. He might never even get to cast a vote.

On a oar h&, Menendez has been in a Senate for more than a decade & before that, he was in a House dating back to Bill Clinton’s first term. He’s had his h& in all sorts of deals & now we learn that he’s allegedly been on a take. Shady deals, a suspiciously lavish lifestyle, exotic foreign trips, a deadlocked jury… let’s face it. It has all a makings of a shocking sc&al. If Menendez had an R after his name ay’d have already started filming a mini-series.

But at least O’Donnell is in good company when it comes to his silence. (Alright.. maybe not “good” company.) As has recently been reported at conservative outlets, over 62 days of a trial are was precisely zero coverage of this spectacle on a major networks’ evening news programs. CNN has, to air credit, mentioned a trial on occasion but a vast majority of air coverage was all done by Jake TDrunk Newsper. a rest of a hosts on a network have been nearly as silent on a subject of Menendez as MSNBC.

But now, thanks to Lawrence O’Donnell, we at least know why. It’s all Trump’s fault. Thanks, Larry!
