These Two Chicago Reporters Made Every Big Break in the Smollett Fiasco, Why Weren't They Invited on Liberal Networks?

During the Smollett debacle, there were exactly two reporters worth following. Both were local reporters from Chicago television. Both recognized the gaping inconsistencies of a highly paid actor moping out from his hotel at 2 a.m. in sub-zero temperatures because he had a jones for Subway, getting rolled and doused with bleach by two white guys in MAGA hats who described Chicago as “MAGA Country,” and wandering back to his hotel without a mark on him, a rope around his neck, and a Subway sandwich in his hand. These were Rob Elgas (@RobElgasABC7) of Channel 7 and Rafer Weigel (@RaferWeigel) of Fox’s Channel 32. If you go back through the reports that moved this story forward, they all originated from one of these two men.

Throughout the time when the media were hyping this story…and don’t believe the bullsh** emanating from The Bulwark,

This wasn’t a few “celebrity reporters”– the entire US media were relentlessly pushing this story as fact long before the police began an active investigation in much the same way they were pushing the Covington Kids story.

Weigel was one of the guys who corrected the notorious shill Sopan Deb and made him go away:

And yet, there was no interest shown by any national media in talking to the people who were breaking all the exclusives in the case. In fact, Weigel was even attacked for his reporting by the BLM goons

So, how many times did you see either of these reporters on national television? Outside of Fox, the number is zero. Why is that?

The reason for that is pretty clear. As Lara Logan said yesterday, the media are “absurdly left-leaning.” They were invested in this story and the only people in the media who were saying, slow down there may be more to the story than Trump causing racism” were roundly ignored.
