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.

This is pretty much a continuation of my last post on the fear-mongering goals of Big Media.

ABC

The Pentagon says a supposed intelligence report cited by ABC News on an emerging COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t exist.

ABC said the report was issued in November by the National Center for Medical Intelligence, an arm of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). It supposedly warned of a pandemic of what would be later named COVID-19.

Relying on sources who said they saw the report, ABC News said the warning was briefed “multiple times” to the DIA, the staff of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Trump White House. (…)

Col. R. Shane Day, a physician who heads the medical intelligence unit, issued a flat denial.

“As a matter of practice, the National Center for Medical Intelligence does not comment publicly on specific intelligence matters,” Col. Day said. “However, in the interest of transparency during this current public health crisis, we can confirm that media reporting about the existence/release of a National Center for Medical Intelligence Coronavirus-related product/assessment in November of 2019 is not correct. No such NCMI product exists.”

CBS

CBS News said an “an editing mistake” led to the network airing footage of an Italian hospital during a segment on New York’s coronavirus crisis in a statement to the Daily Caller on Monday.

“CBS This Morning” discussed Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s allegation that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) only gave the state 400 ventilators when they needed 30,000 on March 25. The network aired footage of a crowded Italian hospital room that was reported by Sky News on March 22 during a segment on hospitals in the country.

CNN


There are dozen — hundreds — of examples which long precede the headline dominance of the Wuhan Plague. But ADD is much a more virulent virus, if not as deadly. Usually.

Many of you are still oblivious to this pattern, but now you have a lot more time to pay attention. Seize that time.

Just trying to assist you for the next Big Media “mistake.”

Happy Passover and Happy Resurrection Day!

Up very early today and was doing paperwork and I noticed Willie Geist playing a clip from Donald Rumsfeld’s interview on ABC about the lack of WMD in Iraq.

This confuses me. Back in Oct and Dec. we posted on the Wikileaks memos (you remember the wikileaks memos? You know the leaks that the left is so supportive of. The leaks that got Mr. Assange a nomination for a Nobel peace prize?) the left was all over the leaks and have even defended the leaker from the military.

Strangely enough that same media and left decided that some of those leaks are more worthy of notice than others. And one of the most unworthy leaks for the MSM are the leaks concerning WMD.

At the time of my first post I quoted Rick Moran from the American Thinker:

Don’t expect any apologies from the rest of the world or even any acknowledgment that they were wrong. The narrative is set and nothing will change it.

ABC’s Diane Sawyer’s interview proves Rick right. Willie Geist’s lead in confirms it, Morning Joe is on Egypt right now but as there is a 2 hour delay today for my kid’s school and I’ll be getting ready for my flight to CPAC tomorrow I’ll be available to watch the rest of the show to see if they touch it too.
