Lots of stuff going on in the house as we will have a friend staying over today so just a few minutes to let you know that I will be on Ed Morrissey’s podcast.

We will be talking about yesterday’s post and Elizabeth Warren’s attacks on pregnancy’s centers

As I was tying this it hit me that all these pregnancy centers are great examples of DaTechGuy’s law of media outrage to wit:

DaTechGuy’s 1st law of media outrage:

The level of Outrage or interest of the media and their allies on the left concerning any insult or prevarication concerning a person or thing will routinely be equal to the inverse of the degree of the political distance between said media / leftists and the target of said insult or prevarication at the time it is made

Attacks by Warren on centers that help woman do not generate outrage because the target, Pregnancy Centers, are diametrically opposite from the left in practice if not in theory

DaTechGuy’s 2nd Law of Media Outrage:

The level of acceptance of the positions and/or actions of any group or organization by the left and media is directly proportional to their current or potential value in electing liberal Democrats.

Actions against pregnancy centers fires up the Democrat base so the left and leftist pols are accepting of them (if that changes this might change but for now that’s where it is.

DaTechGuy’s 3rd Law of media outrage:

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.

The fact that these pregnancy centers have been doing incredible work to help woman, particularly poor women has been ignored as a story for decades because such help does not affirm and in fact contradicts democrat talking points on everything from sexuality to religion and of course abortion.

DaTechGuy’s 4th Law of Media Outrage:

The degree of media exposure of the corruption or illegality committed by any individual or organization under investigation is directly proportional to its distance from the media’s ideology.

While a lot of churches and pregnancy centers are under attack lately the truth is they have been regularly under physical attack for decades but because the radical groups who have been doing these attacks have no distance from the media none of these stories made national news and frankly barely make local news.

DaTechGuy’s 5th Law of Media Outrage:

Any positive actions, even one that supposedly advances a goal or, or done by a group allied or identified with the radical left, will not be considered newsworthy nationally, if said action has the potential to highlight a failure and/or inaction by a Democrat administration that is in power at the time of said positive action

Supposedly helping pregnant women, particularly poor women of color is a positive action that would normally be lionized by media but because said help are provided by religious non profits that get no federal money and tend to be service that are not provided by Democrat allies such stories are not newsworthy as they would highlight the failure of the left and Democrat administrations to provide such needed services

DaTechGuy’s 6th Law of Media Outrage:

The degree of protection by or attack of the media on any person is governed by the degree of danger and/or usefulness to the Democrat party’s electoral goals said protection or attack represents

Because pregnancy centers are not centralized so they don’t have a national face this law is the hardest to apply but we can apply it to Senator Warren in this case. Her attacks on centers that help poor women, if done by a Republican, would normally cause scorn by the media, but Warren is protected from such attacks as they are considered vital as part of the Democrat’s electoral goal of using the Dobbs decision to energize the left base which has very little reason to feel energetic lately.

Update: Didn’t realize it wasn’t live so I don’t know when it will be on I’ll update the post when I know.

A lot to do today so let’s end this year with a Podcast
