The Media Double Standard for Trump and Obama on Russia is Proven! [VIDEO]

Written by Joe Scudder

The Media Research Center has demonstrated the media double standard by comparing the coverage of the two Presidents.

The media double standard has been obvious to conservatives and any other honest observers of the current scene. But the media itself won’t admit to it (whether because they’re THAT stupid or they’re such liars, I can’t say). Or else they’ll claim that Donald Trump is so horrible that the difference in treatment is justified.

But the suspicions raised about Trump don’t compare to the evidence against Obama. Remember this story about President Obama and the Russian President caught on a live mic?

Polizette reports, “Study: CNN’s Trump-Obama Double Standard on Russian Meetings.

CNN has been obsessed over President Donald Trump’s dinner chat with Russian President Vladimir Putin — but yawned by comparison at former President Barack Obama’s infamous “hot-mic” moment with Dmitri Medvedev, then the Russian President.

The conservative watchdog Media Research Center on Wednesday compared press coverage of the two events. From 5 p.m. to midnight on Tuesday, CNN devoted a full 75 minutes of coverage to revelations that Trump and Putin spoke for nearly an hour at a dinner of world leaders two weeks ago at the G-20 summit in Germany.

No one other than Trump, Putin, and a Russian interpreter knows what the leaders talked about, but the fact the public did not previously know about the meeting and the broader investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election sent speculation into overdrive.

By contrast, CNN gave just 25 minutes during a comparable seven-hour period on March 26, 2012, when a microphone picked up a conversation between Obama and Medvedev in Seoul, South Korea. Obama told his counterpart that a dispute over missile defense could be solved but only if Russia gave him space.
