Mary Katharine Ham, one of the few conservative commentators at CNN, blasted a top CNN reporter Friday after he attempted to fact-check her criticism that the media underreported on the 2017 attempted assassination of Republican congressmen.
What is the background?
The focus of Ham’s criticism lay on the substantial attention the media have devoted to the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 riots at the United States Capitol as opposed to the 2017 shooting.
In fact, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) highlighted the apparent disparity of attention given to the riots over the left-wing political activist who targeted Republican Congress members practicing for a charity baseball game in 2017. That shooting critically wounded Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who was House Majority Whip at the time, and left three others injured by gunfire.
The perpetrator was a supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Last year, the FBI classified him as a domestic terrorist.
