Never Mind The Scandal

Scandal? What scandal?
Investigators accuse Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, of attempting to commit bank fraud by misrepresenting themselves on a loan application for a rental property they had. According to the criminal complaint against them, Awan and Alvi had plans to wire the proceeds to people in Pakistan, CNN reports.

Awan worked for a number of congressional offices, but was fired from most of them earlier this year after he and several of his colleagues were accused stealing equipment. However, Wasserman Schultz’s office kept Awan on the payroll up until his arrest last week.

The story took another turn last week after it was revealed the FBI had recovered smashed hard drives from Awan’s home. The contents of those computer drives are not yet known.

However, unless you’re a consumer of conservative-leaning news, you wouldn’t know about the Awan story or the building scandal engulfing Wasserman Schultz and her campaign office.

Newsbusters reports that the major three news networks — ABC, NBC and CBS — which most Americans tune into to consume news, have largely ignored the story. However, Newsbusters notes that CBS’s morning show, “This Morning,” did cover the story last Wednesday, but for only 37 seconds. And when CBS reported on the story, they cited a Politico report instead of the Daily Caller, which has led in news media in the Awan story.
Fake news won't mention the real scandal in its midst...
