NBC News faced criticism for a headline that seemed to blame “conservative news outlets” for reporting a Democrat Senate staffer’s involvement in a sex video in a Capitol Hill hearing room.

The video, initially published by the Daily Caller, led to the dismissal of a legislative aide from Sen. Ben Cardin’s office.

Social media users and political figures accused NBC of bias, arguing that the emphasis on “conservative outlets” was unwarranted. (Trending: Obama Reveals His Fear For Joe Ahead Of 2024)

“Senate staffer alleged by conservative outlets to have had sex in a hearing room is no longer employed,” NBC wrote.

“NBC’s framing of this is outrageous & belongs in the Media Bias Hall of Fame,” former Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said.

“A Dem senator’s staffer videotaped himself having sex in a Senate committee room, shared it online with others, and got fired when it became public.”

“But NBC casts conservatives as the bad guys.”

“Right, those pesky ‘conservative news outlets’ are the real problem here,” Republican Rep. Ralph Norman joked.

“It’s conservative news outlets’ fault? Ridiculous headline. NBC News is working for the Democrats,” former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell wrote.

Comedian Tim Young said, “So it was the conservative outlets fault that that guy filmed gay sex in a Senate hearing room? NBC News is run by clowns.”

“Conservatives didn’t video him, he did and posted it online,” Amuse wrote.

“I didn’t know his own social media was a ‘conservative news outlet,’” Daily Signal columnist Tony Kinnett said.

Conservative writer Charles C. W. Cooke said, “The media cannot escape this formulation. It is constitutionally incapable of seeing what it does, or why.”

“The Capitol police could argue that this constitutes purloining or using government property for personal purposes,” George Washington University Law professor Jonathan Turley wrote.

“The key factor is the fact that this videotape was made with the apparent intent to publish or show others.”

“Sex in congressional offices — by both members and staff — have long been known to occur on Capitol Hill.”

“Yet, this was a public hearing room, albeit closed at the time, and a tape made for what appears public viewing.”

U.S. Capitol Police confirmed they were investigating the matter.
