Pence: More media coverage if Democratic office were firebombed
While visiting a local North Carolina GOP campaign office that was burned down over the weekend, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) accused the media of devoting insufficient attention to the incident because of party bias.
“I’m here to call attention to an act of political terrorism on the Orange County republican headquarters in north Carolina,” Pence told a crowd of reporters outside the ruined office on Tuesday. “This has gotten very little national media attention, and I can’t help but feel that had this been the other way around—had it been an attack in this county on the other political party’s county headquarters—that the level of coverage and discussion would be significantly different and I think most of the American people know that.”
