Re: “Feds end controversial cattle roundup in Nevada” (TNT, 4-13).
We got one of the best examples of the right-wing conservative media’s hypocrisy: Cliven Bundy’s illegal use of federal land. Conservative media were perfectly OK with this family doing it.
This family grazed their cattle on federal land and by doing so needed to pay a usage fee that all other ranchers do in the Southwest. They decided to stop paying those fees in 1993. They owe more than $1 million. Yet Fox News did quite a few segments on how the federal government is creating a “showdown.”
