Liberal Billionaire Buying Election
Harry Reid and the democrats try every day to convince voters that the Koch brothers are evil conservatives who are trying to buy American politics. We've all heard Reid's famous proclamation that Republicans are "addicted to Koch."
Complicit in helping Reid keep the focus on the Koch brothers is the mainstream media bias in midterm election coverage. And democrat candidates across the country have joined Reid in this limitless dishonesty.
With all the focus on the Koch brothers, no one in the mainstream media is paying any attention to the liberal billionaire who really is trying to buy the 2014 midterm election, liberal billionaire Tom Steyer. Steyer, who founded the Nextgen Climate Political Action Committee, is spending hundreds of millions of dollars buying American politics and democrat politicians.
Billionaire Steyer, who made his money in the coal business while pretending to be green, has become the largest benefactor of democrat politicians. He has funded more than 7,000 negative ads and has already spent almost $100 million to buy the 2014 midterm election. You don't hear this story, because mainstream media bias in midterm election coverage has provided cover for the billionaire democrat who is trying to influence the election results in seven key states.
Steyer and his Nextgen Climate Political Action Committee, together with the democrat politicians who are beholden to him for funding their campaigns, have been unsuccessful in making climate change the key issue on the ballot. Steyer and the democrats have been unable to get voters interested in global warming, largely because the planet is actually cooling. In fact, only 2 percent of Americans rank the false narrative of climate change one of the top non-economic issues facing the nation according to an October Gallup poll.
Steyer's lack of success in convincing voters to buy into his dishonest climate change agenda hasn't slowed his efforts to buy the election. On the contrary, Steyer has stated that he will spend whatever it takes to influence election results. Thus, he has changed direction and is now funding dishonest campaign ads about abortion, contraception, Ferguson race riots, Trayvon Martin and more. All, of course, while hiding the fact that he made billions on the fossil fuels he now pretends to hate.
Media Bias In Midterm Election Coverage
ABC, CBS and NBC won't tell you any of this. Because of mainstream media bias in midterm election coverage, the broadcast networks censor news about Steyer, insuring there is no negative coverage of his radical political agenda or his incredible spending to buy the election. Censoring success of the mainstream media is measurable. In the last three years, the mainstream media has run one story about Steyer's political funding, devoting just 34 words to the subject.
The mainstream media won't tell you how Steyer invested millions in Australian coal that he ships to China to avoid environmental standards imposed in the United States. Nor will the mainstream media tell you how Steyer is spending millions to elect democrat politicians to regulate “dirty” energy in the US to benefit his eco-investments. Beholden to his political spending for the very offices they hold, democrats will hurt US companies and the US economy to expand Steyer's already magnificent wealth.
But the mainstream media won't cover any of these stories, because Steyer is a prominent liberal who’s been to the White House 13 times since 2010 and because it doesn't jive with their agenda.
That Steyer and his radical Nextgen Climate Political Action Committee have spent $100 million to buy the 2014 midterm election is a story that deserves a great deal of media attention, but together ABC, CBS and NBC have only been able to muster 34 words for the story.
Mainstream media bias in midterm election coverage couldn't be more glaring. While obscuring Steyer's liberal agenda and political spending, ABC, CBS and NBC have devoted 22 negative stories to the Koch brothers who the media have called extremist billionaires who support “very, very conservative causes.”
None of the 22 stories that attacked the Koch brothers was positive. None of them talked about the $350 million David Koch has donated to cancer research, or the millions he gave to other causes like PBS.
The next time the mainstream media run a story about the evil Koch brothers buying American politics, remember how the mainstream media ignores Tom Steyer, his $100 million of negative ads, the Nextgen Climate Action Committee and the dishonest democrats who do his bidding.
