ABC Hides BLM Bailing Out Attempted Assassin, NBC Calls Them Out

Political News

On Wednesday, Black Lives Matter terrorists in Louisville raised $100,000 to bail out Quintez Brown after allegedly attempting to assassinate Democratic mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg on Monday by barging into his campaign office and firing wildly. It took most of the broadcast networks till Thursday to report this development, but some covered it better than others with ABC covering up the involvement of BLM.

CBS Evening News ignored the development just as they haven’t had any update on the shooting since their initial report on Tuesday night.

Over on ABC’s World News Tonight, anchor David Muir gave the story a scant 29 seconds on the attempted assassin getting bailed out. In those fleeting seconds, Muir downplayed Brown’s political affiliations and obfuscated BLM’s role in bailing him out of jail.

“And back here at home now, a man accused of attempting to kill a candidate for mayor in Louisville, Kentucky, is now free on bond tonight,” he reported. “The suspect described as a social justice activist. A community organization freed him on $100,000 cash bond.”

The use of “social justice activist” brushes over the fact that he’s a leftist extremist who attended the anti-gun rally March for Our Lives. And simply referring to BLM as a “community organization” gave cover to an organization that indisputably supports political violence.

Supporters say he is mentally troubled,” Muir added in Brown’s defense.

In stark contrast, NBC Nightly News hit all the major points that showed who Brown was and why him getting bailed out was a serious problem. “In Louisville, Kentucky, the attempted murder of a mayoral candidate this week has led to new scrutiny of the bail system after the suspect was released,” announced anchor Lester Holt.

The report was delivered by correspondent Gabe Gutierrez, who didn’t spare his own network as he shared a video of Brown appearing on MSNBC’s coverage of March for Our Lives with Joy Reid:

GUTIERREZ: Brown is a local activist who, as a high school student, appeared live on television at a 2018 rally in Washington, D.C. to reform gun laws.

BROWN: I definitely have to be here to, you know, show that student voices matter.

He also called out BLM by telling viewers “The Community Bail Fund, an arm of Black Lives Matter Louisville posted the $100,000 cash bail.” He also noted that “[t]he case illustrates part of the nationwide debate over criminal justice reform” with progressives making it easier for criminals to walk the streets and cities facing the consequences of “lax bail laws[.]”

Gutierrez also spoke to Greenberg himself who argued the justice system was broken since the man who allegedly tried to kill him is at home relaxing:

GUTIERREZ: Should this suspect be out on bail?

GREENBERG: Our criminal justice system is clearly broken. It’s nearly impossible for me to believe that someone can try to kill someone on Monday and walk out of jail on Wednesday.

(…)

GREENBERG: I think there is a big difference in looking at the bail issue for nonviolent suspects versus violent suspects.

Muir made sure to note Greenberg was a Democrat but he really didn’t want people to know that Brown was of the left too.

ABC’s cover-up for Black Lives Matter was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Fidelity and Nutrisystem. Their contact information is linked.

LESTER HOLT: In Louisville, Kentucky, the attempted murder of a mayoral candidate this week has led to new scrutiny of the bail system after the suspect was released. Here’s Gabe Gutierrez.

[Cuts to video]

QUINTEZ BROWN: No comment.

GABE GUTIERREZ: 21-year-old Quintez Brown surrounded by relatives walked out of a Louisville courthouse with an ankle monitor just days after police say he tried to shoot and kill mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg at his campaign office.

ERIKA SHIELDS (chief, Louisville Metro Police Department): One individual in particular was targeted.

GUTIERREZ: Multiple shots fired, no one was injured, but a bullet grazed Greenberg’s sweater.

CRAIG GREENBERG (D-mayoral candidate): Someone came into my office and attempted to kill me.

GUTIERREZ: We spoke with him today.

Should this suspect be out on bail?

GREENBERG: Our criminal justice system is clearly broken. It’s nearly impossible for me to believe that someone can try to kill someone on Monday and walk out of jail on Wednesday.

GUTIERREZ: Brown is a local activist who, as a high school student, appeared live on television at a 2018 rally in Washington, D.C. to reform gun laws.

BROWN: I definitely have to be here to, you know, show that student voices matter.

GUTIERREZ: His lawyer says Brown is battling “a severe mental illness” and “needs mental health treatment, not imprisonment.” The Community Bail Fund, an arm of Black Lives Matter Louisville posted the $100,000 cash bail.

CHANELLE HELM (BLM organizer): The ultimate need that people are asking for, that all of us are asking for is that the mental health help happens, and that was denied at court.

GUTIERREZ: The case illustrates part of the nationwide debate over criminal justice reform. Progressive district attorneys say the bail system is unfair to people who are mentally ill and people who can’t afford to pay. Police argue new lax bail laws are sparking a surge in crime.

GREENBERG: I think there is a big difference in looking at the bail issue for nonviolent suspects versus violent suspects.

GUTIERREZ: Brown is now at home confinement. He’s pleaded not guilty to charges, including attempted murder. Lester?

HOLT: Gabe Gutierrez, thank you.
