If you were a news outlet writing a story on someone, wouldn't you mention the thing for which that person is most famous?
If you were a real news outlet, yes. But we're taking about CNSNews.com here, which is in thrall to right-wing ideology and associated activist groups like the National Rifle Association.
Thus, the May 7 article by managing editor Michael W. Chapman on Oliver North being named NRA president describes him as a "decorated veteran, best selling author, and former National Security Council member" and gushing quotes from NRA official Wayne LaPierre -- but no mention whatsoever of the one thingthat catapulted him to fame -- his involvement in the Iran-contra scandal.
Chapman shoved down the memory hole the fact that North is only technically not a convicted felon, with his convictions on destroying documents, obstructing Congress and taking a bribe dismissed only because of having been granted immunity for his congressional testimony.
A follow-up story by Susan Jones the next day touted a North appearance on "Fox & Friends" (of course) in which he said various pro-NRA things. Jones similarly failed to mention North's role in the Iran-contra scandal.
Again, this is CNS, where it's all about the ideology, not about the journalism.
