Stories the Mainstream Media Won't Tell You

1. You obviously don't watch the US news. It's become clear that, as in Canada, catching the police in any sort of remotely poor behaviour towards minorities is a story  

2. I would agree, though, that the riots over the past year were largely driven by the media, especially TV news lovingly covering every single instance of real or imagined racism or violence towards African Americans by police or other authority figures.

1. Well, mea culpa, yes I missed the obvious live video footage of inappropriate behaviour, but I'm talking about scrutiny of data, and so on that isn't backed up by obvious evidence.
2. The stories reinforce the status quo, which is bad and cuts both ways.  This means America will never need to be reformed, but somehow simultaneously that it is permanently racist and no progress has been made.

What needs to happen, IMO, is a bifurcation of television and new media news into "pop news" which is the equivalent of a broadsheet newspaper and "serious news".

It isn't just the stories the state and corporate news won't cover.

It's the bits they won't tell you and the bits they'll lead with.

Yesterday there were protests in front of BC hospitals. Here's the CBC's lead story:

'My last straw': Vancouver paramedic on brink of quitting due to hospital protests

In this one the CBC has found a guy who tell us he's a paramedic and he's not happy about these protests. He's telling us how these rowdies are making it difficult if not impossible for this noble fellow to do his job and people are maybe possibly dying or bleeding to death or both in the back of his ambulance while anti-vaxxers plug the streets and the hospital staff we were holding up as heroes not too long ago are now being demonized. 

OK, now lets hear from True North news on what they took away from the same protests:

Healthcare workers protest against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and “medical tyranny”

Thousands of Canadian nurses and healthcare workers took to the streets Wednesday to protest against vaccine mandates and take a stand against “medical tyranny.” The protests, organized by Canadian Frontline Nurses (CFN), were held in 18 cities across Canada on the same day the Ontario government announced its plans to impose a vaccine passport in the coming weeks.

CFN aims to “restore our freedoms and rights as Canadian citizens and reinstate the four ethical principles of autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice within nursing.”

In Toronto, approximately 1,000 demonstrators gathered outside the University Health Network Hospital and marched towards Queen’s Park.

Now I read both stories. Those who tell me they're my superiors would only read the state-authorized one from the CBC. So who has a better chance of getting the whole story? I say it's me. And now you. ;)

Found this on Ground News. Interestingly, no left wing media are covering it at all. Also interestingly, just to show you that the media embargo on describing race extends across all media, neither FOX nor Brietbart will describe the vandals/brawlers causing the chaos by any other words but 'young people' or 'teenagers'. Not even they dare to say the word "Black". As in, "Black youths brawled and assaulted people and smashed cars and equipment." But hey, they will show you the videos so you can see for yourself. The left wing media ignore the story completely. Just as they do other, similar stories of similar violence sprees which erupt on a regular basis in the US.

I'm pretty sure that's happened at six flags before. At first, I thought you were resurrecting an old story. 

The way I remember the story the first time around it was the same thing.

But speaking on the way all media has to walk on egg shells when noticing the race of perps unless they're white, this one kind of reminds of that wave of "Asian attack" stories.

And at first the insinuation was all over, everywhere that white neo-nazi types were beating up on these poor old Asian women and such. Then they started to post videos of who was doing it and when all the black faces continued to show up the story disappeared.

This kind of thing happens regularly, at fairs, at shopping malls, and on city streets. It's always gangs of dozens and sometimes hundreds of Black 'youths' but the race is NEVER reported by anyone. Just like the numerous brutal attacks on Asians were largely ignored unless the media could find a white man to blame. During the entirety of the BLM riots over more than a year with the media constantly tsk tsking about 'racism in the police department' no one ever actually demonstrated that racism, nor ever mentioned the disproportionate death toll among Black men at the hands of police was because of the hugely disproportionate violent crime rate among black men.

It seems even Obama gets censored if he says the wrong thing and it offends the progressive media agenda. ABC news did a big interview with him which played on Good Morning, America. One part they edited out was where he said open borders were unsustainable.

"Immigration is tough. It always has been because, on the one hand, I think we are naturally a people that wants to help others. And we see tragedy and hardship and families that are desperately trying to get here so that their kids are safe, and they're in some cases fleeing violence or catastrophe," Obama told co-host Robin Roberts in the excluded portion on Tuesday.

"At the same time, we're a nation state. We have borders. The idea that we can just have open borders is something that ... as a practical matter, is unsustainable," he added.
