Fox News host, Andrea Tantaros, is baffled about why MSNBC would devote time to covering sexual assaults in the U.S. military instead of giving more time to the House Republicans’ fourth IRS hearing, in which no new information was revealed.
“Sex crimes in the military, they are a real issue," Tantaros said on her June 4 radio show on the Talk Radio Network (audio below). "There’s no doubt about that. I’m not going to just poo-poo it. What baffles me, though, is the way they prioritize these issues, the timing and tone of this."
Tantaros asked in disbelief “Why is MSNBC devoting time to this issue? There are so many other issues to deal with.”
She then tied MSNBC into some sort of conspiracy with the Obama administration.
“I mean, it’s the way that they prioritize these things," Tantaros said. "It’s unbelievable what they consider to be priorities. And by ‘them,’ I mean the administration and MSNBC because they are the same thing. MSNBC is an arm of the administration.”
However, MediaMatters.org stated MSNBC actually devoted 1 hour and 21 minutes to sexual assaults in the military and spent 1 hour and 13 minutes on the IRS hearings.
In contrast, Fox News spent 4 hours on the IRS hearing but only 14 minutes on sexual assaults in the military.
