Sharyl Attkisson used to work for CBS. But the network didn’t always appreciate her investigative work. Recently she appeared on a FOX news program to talk about the revelation that Lois Lerner’s “missing” IRS emails were actually “backed up” and still in existence. The other networks chose not to cover that kind of politically incorrect story.

Whether or not you approve of the politics of Texas Governor Rick Perry, you have to admit one thing about the coverage of his indictment on corruption-related allegations. In the 38 minutes and 34 seconds of relevant stories running on ABC, CBS and NBC from August 15th through 20th, the networks failed to clarify who was behind the official complaint.

The left-wing billionaire is barely mentioned on the media outlets that are subjects of his largesse.
The same government that has no problem legalizing all kinds of chemicals that wreak havoc on your entire body … really cares about your teeth. A lot. Enough to add chemical byproducts from fertilizer manufacturing to your water for you whether you like it or not. For your teeth.
