The liberal media have selective memories when reporting stories that could hurt Republicans — a case in point being the racist remarks reportedly uttered by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, Newsmax White House correspondent John Gizzi says.
"The media seems to be selective in its prosecution of ignorance on the part of people who become media figures," Gizzi told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
"We've been hearing all about Donald Sterling 'round the clock," Gizzi said Monday. "Certainly many people know a long record of the kinds of things he's saying.
"And yet very few people point out that he is a Democrat and a major contributor to Democratic figures, including Sen. Pat Leahy of Vermont, former Gov. Gray Davis of California, and the 2000 presidential candidacy of Bill Bradley."

Those ties have not been widely publicized, Gizzi says.
"Now, does this make Bradley, Davis, and Leahy ignorant people and bigots because they have his support? Of course not," he said.
"But I wish that we would not have to search and look so hard for this kind of information and see it upfront where everyone can get it," he said.
According to TMZ.com, Sterling allegedly told his girlfriend he didn't want her to bring black people to his team's games after she posted a photo of herself with Basketball Hall-of-Famer Magic Johnson on Instagram.
