Remember last Friday and Monday when the news was all about the dumb racist voters in the UK and those who who supported them? Remember when every story started off on the stock market collapse, the losses in your 401K and how Trump thought it was great? What have you heard the last three days about the recovery? Silence of course. Here’s the Dow since the day of the vote when everyone thought it was going to be a stay until the close last night. (June 23 to June 29). Up 230. Down 610. Down 261. Up 269. Up 285. If you add and subtract you have a Dow down 87 over five trading days. Not exactly the doomsday and 401k crash they told you it was. In fact the media probably hurt more people than the vote. I bet a good number bailed out scared of generating large losses.
While we’re bashing the media this week, how many of you heard that the Supreme Court unanimously overturned the corruption conviction of former Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia? I bet none of you. They sure covered this “Republican Governor’s” troubles for a year through the trial. Just had no time to report this news.
How many of you heard or saw this on the MSM? Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch “had a trove of child and bondage pornography” uncovered by police officers who raided the estate. “The documents exposed Jackson as a manipulative, drug-and-sex-crazed predator who used blood, gore, sexually explicit images of animal sacrifice and perverse adult sex acts to bend children to his will,” a source said. “He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.” The same Michael Jackson who the courts found innocent and the MSM loved. Just didn’t have time to report this story this week. Here’s a link if you want to read it.
Did you hear this story on the MSM about Obama releasing from Guantanamo Bin Laden’s body guard? Yes, released him. “A Yemeni man who had been held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo for 14 years has been transferred to Montenegro, the Pentagon said on Wednesday, as President Barack Obama pushes to close the facility before leaving office in January.
The transfer of Abdel Malik Ahmed Abdel Wahab al-Rahabi leaves 79 detainees remaining at the U.S. naval base in Guantanamo, Cuba, the Pentagon said in a statement.
Al-Rahabi, 37, who was brought to Guantanamo in January 2002, had been accused of being a bodyguard for the late al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan, according to Pentagon documents”
Here’s the link to a story that Americans should know and hear about but the MSM decided not to cover.
Earlier this week I wrote about the uproar at CNN about the hiring of Trump’s ex campagin manager. I forgot to mention one other CNN hiring last year that had no negatives from their staff. Jay Carney the former spokesperson for the Obama Administration. Everyday he was on TV defending Obama administration policy, including lying outright about the video being the reason for Benghazi well after if was disproven. He went straight from the job to CNN where by the way he was so bad he left within a year to work for Amazon. But there was no protest was there? Oh yea, he is married to Claire Shipman the ABC reporter.
One more story on the MSM bias. You know how they’ve covered the need to raise the minimum wage. Some of us support that, but all of us know that Bernie wanted a $15 wage and Democrats were for it, while mean others simply didn’t care. Well Seattle did raise its minimum with a staged growth to $15 in 2017. Fair enough. But how many people heard that a number of Seattle workers asked for less hours so they could maintain their subsided housing? Yes, they asked for less hours of work with the higher wage. Shouldn’t that be reported by the MSM? Shouldn’t we understand all aspects of this and not just what they decide we should hear? It may not be a large number but how do we know if no one reports accurately?
