On Friday’s NBC Today, news anchor Natalie Morales worried about the safety of reality star Kim Kardashian after a “nasty surprise” at a red carpet event: “…a woman threw white powder on the starlet. Paramedics were called to the hotel, but Kardashian refused treatment….The woman who allegedly threw the so-called flour bomb was detained but later released.”
The same concern was never extended to Republican presidential candidates who endured glitter-bomb attacks from radical gay activists at campaign events. In fact, NBC actually depicted those incidents as gaffes and stumbles for the candidates.
Back in May of 2011, after Newt Gingrich had glitter dumped on him, then-Today co-host Meredith Vieira touted the assault as another problem for his campaign: “Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign off to a shaky start. Just this week he has upset conservatives, refused to talk about owing the high-end jeweler Tiffany’s as much as half a million dollars, and then this – why a protester showered the former House Speaker with glitter.”
In a later report, correspondent Andrea Mitchell declared: “Topping off a bad day, the Gingrich’s book signing in Minneapolis was briefly interrupted by a glitter attack. Activists said it was a gay protest.”
On the February 2 broadcast, correspondent Peter Alexander described a similar glitter attack on Mitt Romney as another “distraction” for the campaign: “He was greeted in Minnesota by a pair of glitter bombs from gay rights protesters.”
Notice the lack of concern for the candidates and the promotion of the childish actions as a form of gay rights protest.

I love it when the diddling, liberal ‘so- called- journalist’ get all twisted up when anything surprising transpires on themselves or like minded nitwits. Morales goes into a tither of concern for a flour bombed, buxom Kardashian, famous for being famous; but they express zero concern for a politician who’s committed the unforgivable crime of being . . . a Republican. No, in Gingrich case, it was all somehow his fault.
When will American’s wake up to the complete hypocrites that the Left dwells in and realize they deserve to be thrown to the curb? These people honestly don’t have any business on news casts and pretending to be informed, unbiased journalist when they’re nothing of the sort. Perhaps if ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and PBS all had Disclaimers at the beginning of their shows: “Please Note: All Content Is Slanted To The Left For Your Convenience”, they’d be more palatable.
