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.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
