Two men have been accused of very similar crimes, how will the media coverage compare?
A man was recently taken into custody for posting dangerous packages recently. But not the one you may be thinking of at the moment. This was the case of a man from Utah who has been accused of sending letters containing a poison to President Donald Trump and other top government officials. So now that the ‘Mail Bomber’ suspect has been taken into custody, it will be quite interesting to judge the media coverage of both cases.
Compare the Media coverage.
While there are marked differences, the similarities will be quite telling for a good side by side study of partisan bias. Both sent dangerous packages through the mail to prominent personalities. The differences being the targets of these attacks and of course the media coverage therein.
Virtually everyone has been inundated with albeit understandable coverage of the ‘Mail bomber’ case, while the ‘ricin-letter’ case has received little media attention. Both were very dangerous situations that could have led to loss of life, but only one has seen wall-to-wall coverage. Thankfully both are off the street, but one should not focus on one to the exclusion of the other.
By the same token, even by comparison so far, the ‘Mail bomber’ case has engendered far more media time than the case of the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four others at a baseball practice in June of 2017 by a supporter of Bernie Sanders.
The Takeaway: Individualist versus Collectivist thinking.
So far the coverage has been very lopsided with Leftists having no trouble assigning blame to those who are innocent. While such was really not the case in the GOP baseball practice shooting. This does reveal an underlying mindset between those of the Rational Right and those on the Socialist-Left. Those of us on the Pro-Liberty side of the aisle tend to treat people as individuals, with individual rights and responsibilities. How many accused Bernie Sanders of being virtually complicit in the baseball practice shooting?
Conversely speaking, the collectivist mindset of the Socialist-Left would have President Trump and just about everyone else supposedly responsible for the actions of someone who has clearly lost the plot. We also saw the same thing take place in the accusations of confirmation Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. With his supposed ‘guilt’ stemming from the actions of others. It should be manifestly obvious that there are those on both side who have gone off the rails, with the same rules applying to both.
Such ideas are ludicrous to those of us imbued in rationality. Individuals are responsible for their own actions, case closed. But not for the Left, this is but one more reason they should never be within reach of the levers of power.
Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of six sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:

- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
