Bias: CNS Devoted Article To Trump's Veterans Day Message -- But Not Biden's
Topic: CNSNews.com

A Nov. 11 article by Craig Bannister was a very gushy piece to a certain former president:

On Thursday, former President Donald Trump released a Veterans Day video, in which he expresses his extreme gratitude to all of those who have served in the U.S. military.

Trump begins by paying tribute to all of the “incredible people” who have served the nation:

[...]

"We love you, our nation respects you, the world respects you – and, we will come back,” Trump promises, noting that America has experience “very, very tough” times of late:

“Our country has gone through a lot. The last period of time has been very, very tough, watching what you had to watch. But, our country will be back and will be back stronger than ever.”

“Happy Veterans Day," Trump concludes.

As the Western Journal reports, as Commander-in-Chief, Pres. Trump was an active supporter of the U.S. military. In 2018, he made a surprise visit to troops in Iraq. He issued an executive order streamlining student loan debt-forgiveness for disabled veterans and also signed bills expanding benefits for U.S. service members.

While CNS served up a Veterans Day tribute from a man who got five deferments to avoid serving in Vietnam, one of which was based on the dubious medical diagnosis of bone spurs, it did not publish a similar article about the Veterans Day message from the current president, even though President Biden issued one.

Does CNS hate Biden so much that it thinks a Veterans Day message from a man whose aggressive avoidance of military service is well known though he once attended a military school is more important than a message from the sitting president? Apparently so.

Oh, and Bannister didn't mention that the Western Journal -- his source for Trump's alleged accomplishments -- isn't exactly a fair and balanced media outlet; Media Bias/Fact Check labels it as far right with questionable accuracy.
