Coverage of Kevin McCarthy’s first trip to the border this week since becoming House speaker provided just the latest example of how the corrupt corporate media provide vastly different treatment to Republicans and Democrats to advance the agendas of the latter.
On Thursday, NPR — which has a history of running PR campaigns for Democrats, yet receives taxpayer funding — published a clip from its “All Things Considered” podcast with a headline questioning whether McCarthy’s visit to the U.S.-Mexico border was “nothing more than a photo op.”
“House Speaker Kevin McCarthy led a congressional delegation to southern Arizona today to address concerns along the U.S.-Mexico border. But critics say this visit is nothing more than a photo op,” podcast host Ailsa Chang said.
The headline for the coverage of McCarthy’s border visit is noticeably different from the one NPR used last month to cover President Joe Biden’s first verifiable visit to the southern border in his 50 years in public office.
