Tag: Double standard in the LSM

No bad news for the demcorats until after the election…

The sycophants in the media, in order to protect the democrats and this criminal administration in particular, are also holding off on a lot of information that would be detrimental to the collectivist powers that be. Picking a replacement for that criminal Eric Holder? Not until after the election. The Secret Service scandals? Not until after the election. The whole Ebola disaster that’s unwinding right now as the CDC crashes & burns and the powers that be pretend there is nothing wrong? Not until after the election. The fact that democrats want to give a pass to millions of illegal immigrants so they can drastically skew future elections in their favor as these people line up for their free shit? Not until after the elections. The list of things the DNC controlled media doesn’t want to talk about until after the election is long and distinguished.

And if they are not doing this delaying of bad news, they are outright faking data (unemployment numbers, economic numbers, government scandals) to fool people into thinking things are getting better than they are. If they deign to report, they provide cover. When they can, they bury the story. This despicable behavior is not news to those of us that pay close attention to the incestuous relationship between the DNC shills in the LSM passing themselves off as objective reporters and their masters in the democratic party, and par for the course. For example, bad Obamacare rate news is also being withheld from the public to prevent a negative impact to democrats, whom passed this disastrous and idiotic law on a party line vote, at the polls.

Here in the US, where the LSM thinks its job is to filter news to favor democrats and hurt republicans, we have not heard a peep about the US military investigation of the deserter the Obama administration traded Gitmo detained master terrorists for, but lucky for us the Berghdal story is covered by others outside the country. The unannounced fact, something that seems very common with anything that has detrimental impact for democrats in the coming election, is the military completed that investigation last week. But here in the US that never made the news cycle. Obviously even this compromised and PC-centric military leadership couldn’t sanitize the story enough to cover the obvious conclusion that Berghdal was nothing but a deserter and an enemy sympathizer, and that the Obama administration traded people very likely to attack the US again, to bring one of their own back.

The key to my speculation is the revelation in the MailOnline article pointing out that this information is unlikely to be reported until after the November election.

Low information voters and cheaters win the elections for the left. No wonder the left balks at any talk of actually providing some accountability and verification.

Have you heard about this event?

I have to admit I missed this tragic event when it happened, and was wondering why the usual suspects in the LSM were not reporting the story 24/7 and demanding the 2nd amendment simply be ignored. It looks like most of the stuff the anti gun left loves about these stories was there:

A TEENAGER who may have had a grudge against a teacher opened fire with a shotgun at a Colorado high school, wounding two students before killing himself. Quick-thinking students alerted the targeted teacher, who quickly left the building. The scene unfolded on the eve of the Newtown massacre anniversary, a sombre reminder of the ever-present potential for violence in American schools. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson identified the shooter on Friday night as 18-year-old Karl Halverson Pierson. The shooter entered Arapahoe High School armed with a shotgun and looking for a teacher he identified by name, Sheriff Robinson said. “(The teacher) knew he was the target and he left that school in an effort to try to encourage the shooter to also leave the school,” the sheriff said. “That was a very wise tactical decision.”

OK so it looks like the one thing missing is deaths. So maybe that was why the LSM was not all over this story and we couldn’t be left alone by the gun grabbers. Maybe I say, because if you keep reading, I think, you find out precisely why the LSM has dropped the story:

Pierson has been described as a dedicated and bright student from a religious family who attends Bible study meetings, leaving those that knew him shocked. “They’re just a normal middle-class family, like many of the families around here,” neighbour Diane Shea said. Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with the gunman, described him as a very opinionated Socialist.

That bold section there is why this story never got legs. Remember, the LSM needs the narrative to be about the evil conservatives and such, but despite the fact that this low life was supposedly a religious person, which they definitely would have loved to use, it turns out he is a unicorn fart sniffer too. And that is the end of that story. Now if they could have only linked him to the Tea Party like their marching orders tell them they should, then this story would have some legs…

Do not want to minimize this tragedy, but I simply feel that the blatant bias of the LSM should not garner them a pass on despicable behavior. And you can bet you ass that this story is not getting 24/7 coverage because they think it isn’t a big story, but because they think it is a story with the wrong components.

Well, DUH!

Conor Friedersdorf at The Atlantic has an article titled Why Does the American Media Get Big Stories Wrong? where he tries to use the typical liberal mumbo jumbo bullshit to supposedly respond to an article by a conservative pointing out that the LSM gets the story wrong because they are a bunch of biased idiots too eager to serve their leftists masters and keep the narrative going.

His whole article is nevertheless worth reading (with the caution that Tyler Cowen wisely counsels). At its best, “Our American Pravda” is a vital reminder that many things we’re told are wrong; that we aren’t told many things of vital importance; and that the U.S. media is rife with flaws, many of them easily identifiable. Unz does a service by highlighting these shortcomings powerfully and compellingly. What explains them? Below I offer several theories and observations, noting concurrences and several disagreements with Unz’s analysis as needed.

He could/should have just written a one liner saying “Yes, we fuck it up because we are nothing but mouthpieces for the DNC. Reporting what serves their agenda and sitting on stories that don’t.”, and he would have gotten it right. The analysis he offers is a whitewash of that obvious fact. Our media has their lips firmly planted against DNC ass. It prevents them from seeing what’s really going on. Can you imagine the LSM being as blasé and defensive as they are now of the numerous Obama Administration scandals if this was happening back some 6 or so years ago? Yeah, I thought so.

If it quacks like a duck…

There is this saying that if it walks, quacks, and swims like a duck, then it is a duck that seems to be very appropriate when we discover that key agents of the tyrannical and corrupt Obama administration, currently mired in a slew of scandals of governmental power abuses targeted at political enemies, some that have even caused loss of lives, has “special emails” they use to communicate with each other. News form those who promised us this would be the most ethical administration ever reveals:

WASHINGTON (AP) – Some of President Barack Obama’s political appointees, including the Cabinet secretary for the Health and Human Services Department, are using secret government email accounts they say are necessary to prevent their inboxes from being overwhelmed with unwanted messages, according to a review by The Associated Press.

Yeah, sure. They are needed to avoid spam, despite the fact that these assholes have told us repeatedly how much more tech savvy they are and putting in spam filters would be cake for Leviathan’s techies, and not, as is blatantly obvious, so these fucking crooks can avoid a paper trail of the illegal activity they have been at. You cannot make up how despicable these fucks are, or for that matter how stupid they think we are to try and pass us that line of bullshit. It’s even more serious than you would like to believe too.

The scope of using the secret accounts across government remains a mystery: Most U.S. agencies have failed to turn over lists of political appointees’ email addresses, which the AP sought under the Freedom of Information Act more than three months ago. The Labor Department initially asked the AP to pay more than $1 million for its email addresses.

The AP asked for the addresses following last year’s disclosures that the former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency had used separate email accounts at work. The practice is separate from officials who use personal, non-government email accounts for work, which generally is discouraged – but often happens anyway – due to laws requiring that most federal records be preserved.

The secret email accounts complicate an agency’s legal responsibilities to find and turn over emails in response to congressional or internal investigations, civil lawsuits or public records requests because employees assigned to compile such responses would necessarily need to know about the accounts to search them. Secret accounts also drive perceptions that government officials are trying to hide actions or decisions.

Have no doubt that this practice is pervasive and in heavy use, and that the LSM is reporting it is a miracle. Guess the AP people are pissed that black Jesus’ people were treating them just as they do the evil conservative enemy they were helping fight. Anyway, when the head of the EPA was caught doing this and resigned in order to forestall investigations last year I suspected that this was more than to just done to hide the facts in this case and/or do damage control by delay. Now we find out that this suspicion was right. Lest you miss the real kicker in this AP piece and focus on the excuse making done in by an author that is trying to both point out how bad this practice is while fighting their reflexive need to defend Team Blue’s criminal activity, check this out:

“What happens when that person doesn’t work there anymore? He leaves and someone makes a request (to review emails) in two years,” said Kel McClanahan, executive director of National Security Counselors, an open government group. “Who’s going to know to search the other accounts? You would hope that agencies doing this would keep a list of aliases in a desk drawer, but you know that isn’t happening.”

And it is not happening, because, despite the excuse making by the conflicted author that follows this horrendous revelation in the AP piece, it is blatantly obvious to any non-sycophant of black Jesus’ cult that the reason for these secret email accounts is to allow them to keep their shenanigans off the record. If the line of crap that the author feeds us about how the government types tell them the emails are used to separate internal/external mail and important/unimportant mail was to be believed, why not have this practice be public knowledge? Why have the lead of the EPA, which had been engaged in a criminal campaign of making up legal obligations that congress knew would result in major pain had they passed laws pushing these idiotic, ineffective, inefficient, unneeded, and costly regulations, resign so she could avoid having to testify under oath to congress? I will tell you why, and no, the argument that this is speculation or conspiracy mongering on my part doesn’t fly anymore, because this isn’t an isolated incident but an obvious pattern, business as usual for Team Blue, for anyone not with their heads so far up black Jesus’ ass that reality escapes them: they are trying to hide the illegal shit they are doing.

The excuse making continues, but those of us that are not fooled by the massive campaign of lies, know we are dealing with an administration so corrupt that it makes what happened with Nixon look like child’s play and unfair to Nixon. It has now become obvious that despite the fact we would also have to deal with a ton of made up shit by the LSM that is hoping to damage such an administration and help their Team Blue buddies, the only time we will get any serious media scrutiny of government will be when the people in charge are not part of the clique hell bent on destroying this country and remaking it in their marxist-fascist image. Buyer beware. And seriously, spare me the attemt to pretend that these people are not a danger to all fredom loving people’s rights. For every one of these horrible abuses by them we know off, I bet there are dozens we don’t. Fuck they are dispicable.

They did it for national security!

Really, that’s why the LSM kept information about a secret drone base in Saudi Arabia out of the news. And they did it for over a year, so the dronez could not be compromised! Had nothing to do at all with that election thing that happened about 4 months ago or so, I am sure….

Meh, why worry? All is fine because even though this killing people would have made them insane if done by anyne else, because it is being done by their golden boy, it is OK. Besides, they did kept this informatiom from us peasants for a real good reason.

Man, I pine for the days where these losers in the LSM told us that waterboarding was on par with the torture done by those that really knew how to torture, and that Boosh should be dragged in front of a tribunal or impeached for it. These days we are using more rendition than they did in the Clinton years and the prez is killing people and claiming that since they where on his super secret list it makes it OK, and these shitbags are all making excuses for him.

The fifth column at work

Remember the noise the LSM made after Katrina about the inefficiency of the Boosh era FEMA? How incompetent these fools where, not because they were an unaccountable government behemoth, but because of Boosh being in charge and wanting to kill black people. Every LSM outlet was covering the disaster, and instead of blaming the leadership of LA for not prepping for the coming onslaught, they did their due diligence to help demonize the guy they hated. Fast forward a few years, and we have Sally smacking an unprepared east coast. The damage was huge. Obama went there to score the usual political pictures and pretend to care, but FEMA is still incompetent and at it. Only now, I have to go to Fox News to find out NYC was unprepared, FEMA sucks, and the people are pissed. In the LSM, they have moved past this story, because it will hurt their guy.

Obama, whom only really cared about the photo-op, gets a pass, Boosh however, was an evil hater tha wanted to kill colored people. And we are told there isn’t a bias in the LSM. If it was not for a double standard, the left would not have any.
