Malfeasance of the Jurassic Media on Yet Another Tragedy

by lewwaters

Once again a tragedy has struck a community and multiple people have been gunned down by a lone gunman, reasons unknown. Aurora, Colorado is the latest victim having to deal with such tragedy as we woke this morning to read of 12 dead; 59 wounded in the Aurora Sentinel.

Later reports have identified the shooter as 24 year-old graduate student and PhD candidate, James Holmes, who was arrested in the Century 16 Theater parking lot shortly after the melee.

Although any reason he had to commit such a heinous murder spree remains unknown, once again we see the media, ABC’s Brian Ross specifically leaping to assign blame and point fingers at those who have absolutely no connection to the tragic murders.

Honesty, Not Media Bias Will Promote Wisdom

by lewwaters

In 1819, Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter to Nathaniel Monticello, “I read no newspaper now but Ritchie’s, and in that chiefly the advertisements, for they contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper.”

America’s love/hate relationship with the media is well established and not new. Allegations of bias are frequently heard and usually based in hard fact or evidence, as we saw the Watergate scandal grow under a relentless media until we saw the first ever resignation of a sitting President, Richard Nixon in 1974.

Efforts to demean another president, George W. Bush weren’t successful in ousting him from office, but the effort convinced a lot of people he was a very poor leader when he in fact was much better than he received credit for.

On the other end of the scale we see the media not very interested in what the current occupier of the Oval Office did or does, willfully covering up scandals such as the administrations involvement in the Fast & Furious scandal, a faltering economy, high unemployment and more.

Injured “Ex-Marine” Founder of IHateTheMarines.com

by lewwaters

The left’s spin of Scott Olsen, purported to be a two-time Iraq veteran who received a fractured skull in the Occupy Oakland riot, is typical of that ilk. It is unknown just what hit Olsen or where it came from, but is presumed to have been a Police Projectile.

As soon as he was seen injured, in typical fashion, the protesters leaped at a chance to now embrace one they would just as soon spit on, portraying him as a typical Marine, accusing the Police of targeting a Marine, blah, blah, blah, to quote Mayor Tim Leavitt.

While it is tragic that the 24 year-old has been injured, it should also be known that he was and is not your typical Marine Veteran.It turns out that Scott is the founder of a now defunct website, see here

A comment left on his facebook page here by a Jerry Dumas claims,

“In 2010, the Marines issued Olsen an “administrative discharge.” Maj. Shawn Haney, a Marines spokesman based in Quantico, Va., declined to discuss Olsen’s discharge, but said his departure could have been for anything from a medical condition to a punitive measure.
Im guessing the latter and not the former.
Anything less than an Honorable Discharge is a disgrace to the uniform.”

Additionally, the claims of brutality by Police at this “non-violent” protest falls apart as MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell ended yup embarrassed on the air by a protesters admission that they were in fact throwing rocks and bottles at Police.

The left’s claims of this being a struggle for freedom or improving the lot of people in America is as bogus as can be. This is obviously just what we have claimed it is all along, a move by anarchists and socialists to being about the collapse of America.

And, they have no problem using any and every thing as propaganda to accomplish that, including dishonoring the US Marine Corps.

New York Times ‘Shameless’ Attempt To Bolster Obama

by lewwaters

The New York Times, long known to be one of fartherest left-leaning pro-socialist propaganda pieces in print has outdone themselves in their attempt today to ‘resurrect’ both a failed presidency and a piece of legislation the majority of American citizens say they do not want.

As Health Vote Awaits, Future of a Presidency Waits, Too

Will their next photo spread show Obama wearing a white robe, a crown of thorns and nailed to the cross?

Imagine, if you will, the outraged editorials the New York Times would print had Fox News published that same photo with George W. Bush in it.
