It’s difficult to imagine a more clear-cut a case of media bias.
One reporter at a television station said on the air, “Ted Cruz is like the dark lord from Star Wars,” and, “I think he’s the Antichrist.”
Another reporter at the same television station stated in a private Facebook post that she was “happy and relieved” the morning after Donald Trump won the presidential election.
The reporter who privately made the conservative comment was fired.
The reporter who publicly made the liberal comment still has his job.
Scarlett Fakhar was a rising star, a reporter and noon anchor for KRIV-TV, the Fox 26 affiliate in Houston, Texas.
“I worked my way up,” the stunning and erudite young journalist told WND. “I didn’t start off as the noon anchor. I started as an evening news reporter then started anchoring.”
But her star abruptly came crashing back to earth when she became the story instead of the reporter. Suddenly, she was making national headlines for having been fired a week after posting her comments on a private Facebook page, visible only to her friends.
Or, so she thought.
