After less than 48 hours of non-stop coverage, speculation, opinion and outright fabrication, America is beginning to sort out the details of what happened in Tuscon, Arizona. No, I don’t mean the shooting. I mean the Media aftermath.
We know, for instance, that some nut bag, with interpersonal relationship issues, somehow managed to gather together what few pieces of reality he could grasp and combined them in a twisted episode of his own version of either “24” or Jersey Shore, with guns. But that isn’t the real story.
Jarred Loughner was just the match that lit the fire of self inflicted ignorance within the electronic and print media around the world. And in the largest case of irony ever documented, many of these media types prefaced their comments with a codicil of impartiality and non-partisanship, just before they launched into a unifying rant of unsubstantiated finger pointing not seen since Richard Jewell DIDN’T set off a bomb at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
Nevermind that it was later learned that Eric Robert Rudolph had planted the bomb, Jewell was forever haunted by the media’s irresponsible branding him a terrorist and died a lonely and indelibly tainted soul in 2007. But the silence and lack of apology by the media for their ‘lust of blame’ is almost deafening.
The cold reality is that Big Media impatiently awaits any opportunity to demonize their enemies (anyone to the right of Saul Alinsky) and thereby support their failing Socialist experiment, into infinity. And in the ultimate incongruity, they are propping up and promoting the very interests that will be their demise. In the end, the socialist’s regime will have a State run media, not unlike today’s New York Times and MSNBC, but not needing their current sycophants to spread and support their propaganda.
No my friends, Tuscon isn’t just a symptom of America’s illness. It is a taste of what we’re facing when those who benefit from America’s greatness hate the ones who are paying for it.
