Former Senator Barabara Boxer was assaulted and robbed in Oakland California Monday and the liberal press has mostly refused to cover it.
As Fox News reports:
Former California Sen. Barbara Boxer was attacked and robbed of her cell phone Monday in Oakland, but anyone who relies on CNN or MSNBC’s primetime lineups for news was left in the dark about the stunning attack.
The liberal media has been criticized recently for downplaying or ignoring a spike in violent crimes in America’s largest cities. Boxer being robbed appears to be the latest example, as CNN and MSNBC both ignored the breaking news during primetime as details unfolded, according to a Grabien Media search of transcripts.
Earlier today former Senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted in the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland. The assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone and jumped in a waiting car. She is thankful that she was not seriously injured."

Boxer, a Democrat from California, was in Oakland’s Jack London Square neighborhood when someone pushed her in the back and took her phone, she tweeted in the late afternoon Monday.
CNN and MSNBC did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
It appears that the mainstream media will do almost anything to obscure the crimewave currently sweeping the country under Joe Biden, even if it means sacrificing one of their own.
