Today I went to breakfast with DaWife and ended up in front sitting right in front of the TV with the local news on. I don’t do a lot these days. I mentioned yesterday that the March for Life was not newsworthy to the MSM and neither was it for the local Boston news despite many from Massachusetts who traveled there, however an infinitely smaller march in Madison WI in support of abortion was important enough to be covered with film.

For some perspective here is a time lapse of the March For Life this weekend.

I don’t miss local news, I don’t even bother with them for sports anymore, just not trustworthy.


Speaking of things not newsworthy to the local station A member of congress from Massachusetts, and not just any member the #2 Democrat in the house Katherine Clark the house minority whip had her son/daughter/whatever arrested yesterday for assaulting a police officer during Antifa event in Boston Yesterday.

Hey a local member of congress in a leadership position with a kid who is arrested for assaulting a cop in Boston with ANTIFA, that’s GOT to be newsworthy for a Boston station so I watched for it while I was eating breakfast.

Not a mention w

If she had an “R” after her name rather than a “D” it would be THE story trumping even the winter storm.


I did notice that there was a scroll on the screen which mentioned the Monterey Park Shooting. The left had a narrative all in play until the shooter turned out to be an Asian Male and the crime driven by a domestic dispute between a Husband and Wife.

One that became apparent the story suddenly and unsurprisingly became unnewsworthy for the national media. I guess the people who do the crawl for the station didn’t get the updated memo.


There is a lot I can say about the credibility of the MSM but when it comes to discrediting them they do a much better job than I could ever do myself, to wit:

Nothing says “peaceful protest” like a burning police car. David Limbaugh (Rush’s Brother) nails it:

Not if it clashes with the narrative they can’t.


For all the media’s spin on events, dishonest reporting, censorship and pushing narratives, one thing remains true. Reality doesn’t care what the narrative is as demonstrated by this story out of Seattle:

How bad has the rampant crime, spiraling homeless problem, and general dystopian appearance of Seattle, Washington gotten lately? Apparently, the conditions are bad enough that Nike has chosen to permanently shut down its flagship store in the city after 26 years in operation, which it did on Friday. At the same time, Regal Cinemas announced that it would not be renewing its lease on its Meridian 16 multiplex. Neither company has put out an official statement as to their reasons for leaving, but it’s pretty obvious to the residents of the city. Seattle has simply become unlivable over the past couple of years. Between the criminals, the illegal migrants, and the homeless (who are dying in record numbers), the city is almost unrecognizable. 

You can spin violent leftists as the summer of love, you can pretend that there is not problem and the national media can say things are overblown all they want, but in the end business is business and Nike and Regal Cinemas have decided that Seattle is no place for theirs.

Well it’s been 24 hours since the first part of Mia Cathell’s Town Hall’s story about the Zulock gay pedophile ring case out of Georgia:

LGBTQ-pride paraphernalia littered the family’s extravagantly furnished four-bedroom, five-bathroom house (plus a packed three-car garage), including a rainbow Mickey Mouse stuffed animal placed atop a “Love Above All” pillow on the foyer’s loveseat, where Zachary was swarmed by the SWAT team, and a neon “Love is Love” sign that adorned the kitchen’s granite countertop.

And it’s been 24 hours since my post noting the lack of interest in the story not only on the national level (in accordance with DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of Media Outrage) but even on the local level

 it seems that this is not considered all that newsworthy on the local level. If you do a search of the Atlanta Journal Constitution for the name “Zulock” you will find it comes back with no results. (As a control I did a search for “Trump” on the same page and my cup overflowith.)

If fact if you do a duck duck go search for Zulock under “news” the only result under “News” for the name “Zulock” in Duck Duck go is a story in the Walton Tribune saying they are due back in court.

That post has been one of the most popular posts on this site in a while as it spread through Twitter like wildfire (something that didn’t happen much in the pre-musk days for some reason).

Well Mia Cathell is back for part 2 of her series and it doesn’t get any more pleasant:

Law enforcement learned from Lawless there was “a secondary suspect” “producing homemade child sexual abuse material with at least one adopted child who lived in the home with the perpetrator,” Walton County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a press release.

Lawless allegedly met Zachary through a mutual contact named “Blake” on Grindr, an LGBTQ hook-up app, and received “numerous” Snapchat messages from Zachary saying, “I’m going to f*ck my son tonight,” and to “stand by” for graphic visuals of the father raping his child. According to what Lawless told police, Zachary also invited Lawless “multiple times” to engage in sexual acts with him and his two adopted boys, but Lawless denied having had any physical contact with the Zulock boys.

But as to the question of Federal Charges as per the title of the piece: Will This LGBTQ Pedophile Ring Face Federal Charges?

Could the Zulock couple face federal charges? How far-reaching is the pedophile ring and will other members be unmasked?

“We decline to comment,” a public affairs officer in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia replied when Townhall inquired if the U.S. Department of Justice has any interest in investigating and prosecuting a federal case against the Zulock co-defendants. Last year, Georgia’s DOJ office pursued a handful of child sex crimes-related cases in its jurisdiction.

Well in fairness, as the story notes the DOJ during the Joe Biden era has other priorities…

(As Townhall previously reported, the Biden administration’s DOJ is preoccupied with targeting peaceful pro-life leaders and rounding up elderly Christian preachers who stand up for innocent unborn life. One father, who protested outside of an abortion clinic in Georgia’s northwest neighbor Tennessee, was arrested at home by a swarm of armed FBI agents in front of his children.)

In fairness a no comment doesn’t mean no action but with the number of out of state trips this “family” took as far away as Louisiana and Illinois the potential for Federal Charges remains.

But for the purposes of this piece I wondered if Town Hall’s running of the story resulted in any change to the search results that I had done yesterday, so I repeated them today and added a search on Yahoo for good measure.

The result from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, from Google, from duck duck go, exactly the same as yesterday, a whole lot of nothing going on and nothing based on yesterday’s Town Hall story.

Oh and Yahoo, The only result was a single link to a WSBTV.com story from five months ago.

The Blackout is continuing bigger and better than ever, the only question left is will it remain so when all four parts of Cathell’s series is released.

I wouldn’t bet against it.

Once upon a time there was a gay couple that adopted sons and the media absolutely loved them in factr the Zulocks were as Town Hall points out were

darlings of the LGBTQ media. They were part of an anti-gay hate campaign promoting “#NOH8,” and Out magazine, which holds the nation’s highest circulation among LGBTQ monthly publications, has repeatedly asked them if its website’s Pride page can feature their photos taken at the Atlanta Pride Parade.

It turns out they were apparently something else using their adopted sons as sexual playthings:

According to a copy of the 17-count indictment Townhall has obtained, the adoptive dads allegedly performed oral sex on both boys, forced the children to perform oral sex on them, and anally raped their sons. In at least one instance, the anal rape injured the older Zulock child, who just turned 11-years-old in mid-December. Court records indicate that the child sexual abuse stretches back to as early as late 2019 and intensified in January 2021, March 2021, and December 2021, as the offense dates are listed.

You would think it doesn’t get any worse than that. You’d be wrong:

An updated criminal affidavit says the child sexual abuse was filmed by William’s husband Zachary, “with whom he routinely engaged in sexually abusive acts” on the boy. Zachary, the household’s breadwinner, confessed to being the cameraman, and authorities allegedly found a folder on his cell phone—labeled “US”—that contained videos of William sexually abusing the child.

very wrong:

The indictment also charges the Zulock co-defendants with soliciting two other men, through the use of popular social media platforms, in the Greater Atlanta metropolitan region to “perform an act of prostitution” with their child that suffered physical injuries from being brutally raped. Townhall is the first to publicly identify these two alleged members of a pedophile ring in the heart of the Peach State: 27-year-old Hunter Clay Lawless and 25-year-old Luis Armando Vizcarro-Sanchez, both of Loganville.

Now you might think that a pair of gay men using their adopted sons as sexual playthings, making gay porn with them and pimping them out to others just might be newsworthy but also that would violate DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of Media Outrage which declares:

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

At least it would be but it seems that this is not considered all that newsworthy on the local level. If you do a search of the Atlanta Journal Constitution for the name “Zulock” you will find it comes back with no results. (As a control I did a search for “Trump” on the same page and my cup overflowith.)

If fact if you do a duck duck go search for Zulock under “news” the only result under “News” for the name “Zulock” in Duck Duck go is a story in the Walton Tribune saying they are due back in court.

Of course that’s Duck Duck Go. What about Google, the biggest search engine in the world? Well do a google search of “jacoby zulock” one of the suspects in the case and you will get a whopping 12 results, only half of them in English. The top result being the Walton Tribune story, three of them being Town Hall posts on the subject one being a short WGAU radio post from Aug 8th and the other a daily beast post from the same day linking to a WSBTV story from the same day

Now you might think a ring producing and distributing child porn and pimping out kids with enough cameras in a house to make Jeffrey Epstein proud might be a story that would gather eyeballs, but when the narrative is all, the last thing the media wants is this story to be in front of any people at all.

#unexpectedly of course

Update: Can’t believe I missed the link to the base townhall piece, Now at the top. Oh and part 2 of the four part series from Townhall is now out, and as as the Talking Heads would put it, the coverage or lack thereof is same as it ever was

This is huge:

A coalition of outspoken critics and skeptics of the mainstream narratives on COVID-19 has brought an antitrust lawsuit against some of the world’s largest news organizations, accusing them of working in collaboration to suppress dissenting voices surrounding the pandemic.

This is at the Zerohedge (via Insty) The story continues:

“By their own admission, members of the TNI have agreed to work together, and have in fact worked together, to exclude from the world’s dominant internet platforms rival news publishers who engage in reporting that challenges and competes with TNI members’ reporting on certain issues relating to COVID-19 and U.S. politics,” the complaint reads.

The revelations of the Twitterfiles combined with the continuing number of “unexpected” and “excess” deaths particularly among the young and healthy are really going to drive this suit.

When you see parents outside the courtroom with pictures of their dead kids that’s going to have an impact and if this suit succeeds the class action suits that will follow are going to be tremendous, not only by families of the deceased and the crippled but by those who have lost jobs and livelihoods because of the false narratives advanced and the suppression of truth.

I imagine there are lawyers licking their chops at the thought of it. Bezos has very deep pockets.
