Why have the liberal news media largely ignored this major story??

Some folks just cannot resist the urge to debate current issues of the day...here's the place to satisfy your craving. BE FOREWARNED - if you are an intellectual lightweight, you might find it a bit rough in here. This place is kinda like a never-ending edition of the McLaughlin Group. (Whatever happened to Mort Zuckerman, anyway?)

T.C. Talks, I would argue most media have done a piss poor job covering Trump's conflicts and transgressions, and yes, it does upset me to a degree.

Those things are not as troubling as sexual abuse of children, though.
So now I guess I'm still unclear about the nature of your complaint. Is it the sexual abuse that is the issue or that it's sexual abuse committed by a liberal? Either way the perpetrator is a solid lock for civil or criminal court proceedings and those proceedings will be covered by the press, so again I'm unclear what has you so stirred up, let alone what would resolve your discontent.

If it's the abuse aspect, that's fine. I was none too happy when the Dennis Hastert story came out, none too happy with Penn State/Sandusky/JoPa. If I were foolish enough to make comparisons, those were a great deal more high profile than a city mayor, therefore naturally generating more coverage. It's a horrible crime and deserves the harshest of condemnation. Is there any evidence that the media has let Murray off the hook, arguably like JoPa? I've not seen it. So that brings me back to being puzzled by your outrage. Is it a case of 'life ain't fair'? If that's it, you're right, life ain't fair. If it were Hastert would still be in jail and JoPa's statue would have been melted for scrap metal. Yet here we are.

Murray lost his job and will most certainly be facing legal issues for the rest of his life. As cumbersome and ungainly as it is, the system hasn't completely broken quite yet but whining about who got more ink seems like a trivial pursuit. It's a poor hill to die on.
It's something that if it were covered ad nauseum I'd change the channel... to be blunt this guy is unimportantly small fish and I have no clue who the hell he is so it's not interesting in the slightest. I can't be the only one who thinks it's a snooze.

Not only is he a far-left loon, but he's also openly gay.

A far more important story is that Ted Cruz liked a porn video on twitter. It doesn't matter that it was one of his staffers, as long as it involves a republican politician and sex, then it is news. BIG NEWS!
True.

Blame it on the DNA.
Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!
