(Natural News) The large national legacy media in America have long ceased to be tools used to inform the public and keep pressure on our elected officials, as it was founded to do.
Instead, USA Today, The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, and others are little more than propaganda outlets for the left-wing deep state.
What’s more, they have actually become weapons of societal destruction, as evidenced by the response to the recent subway shooting in New York City, which police have correctly described as an act of domestic terrorism (and one not committed by an ‘angry white Trump supporter’).
The Washington Free Beacon Editorial Board noted this week:
A Washington Free Beacon report last week from our colleague Charles Lehman put data behind what we all know to be true: that the media harp on violence carried out by whites and downplay it when the perpetrator is black—or should we say “Black.”
That report went up on Thursday, the day after police arrested the black nationalist who gunned down 13 people in a Brooklyn subway station. His race—and his professed bigotry against whites and Jews—were either excluded from media reports entirely or described in an anodyne way. The New York Times described his “harshly bigoted views”—against whom, they could not say.
Then came the release of video from a police shooting in Grand Rapids, Mich., an incident with a white “perpetrator” and a black victim. Video shows 26-year-old Patrick Lyoya fleeing from the unidentified officer before grabbing for the officer’s taser. The two struggle on the ground before the officer fatally shoots Lyoya.
As usual, the lapdog ‘mainstream media’ weaponized the latter incident using wall-to-wall coverage, with the Times, the Post and CNN all referring to Lyoya as an “unarmed Black man” despite the fact that he grabbed the officer’s taser which, taken to the extreme, he could have used to incapacitate the officer, grab his weapon, and then kill him.
At the same time, the garbage media uncritically promoted the grieving family’s claim that Lyoya was “killed like an animal” and ambulance-chasing race-baiting lawyer Benjamin Crump, ‘representing’ the family, outrageously claiming the incident was an “execution.”
Crump pushed that lie with another race-baiting hater Al Sharpton of MSNBC, who, of course, is to deliver Lyoya’s eulogy this week though he has no prior knowledge of who the deceased was.
Mind you, not once have these disgusting media outlets condemned the fact that Lyoya was resisting the police officer and put the officer’s life in danger. Not once have these media gaslighters mentioned that had it not been for Lyoya trying to grab the officer’s taser he would very likely be alive today.
But, as the Editorial Board noted, “It’s no wonder Michiganders spent the weekend protesting. (The press apparently doesn’t use pompous fact-checking clauses like ‘claimed without evidence’ unless it’s former President Donald Trump or one of his allies who’s doing the talking.).”
The media’s pathetic coverage of the Grand Rapids shooting was so outrageous that even somber, rational commentary offered by a former police officer, Anthony Barksdale of Baltimore, Md., nearly seemed like it was out of place.
“When you have an individual … trying to take control—or has control—of the officer’s equipment, especially a taser, then lethal force is the next level above a taser,” Barksdale told CNN. “The test is, what would a reasonable officer do? The issues with the taser, I could see lethal force being used by this officer.”
Of course. Because otherwise, what we said above is the most likely scenario: A tazed cop, then a dead cop. A perp willing to grab an officer’s taser won’t be satisfied just ‘stunning’ him.
“The hysterical media coverage of the incident is surely being consumed by the next subway shooter out there, whose motivations will then be dutifully buried in paragraph 21 of the New York Times report on the tragedy, if they get a mention at all,” the Editorial Board noted.
The media is simply trying to gin up the next domestic terrorism incident because they are disgusting human beings.
