How our Main Stream Media shows their true colors


Here we go again; another fire-storm of controversy is being stoked by our leftist/progressive MSM. We just came off the heels of the Martin/Zimmerman case where in the beginning if you remember had Zimmerman guilty of not just murder, but also of being a full-blown racist.

The misleading media coverage in that case was first the media putting up a mug shot of Zimmerman, and a very young picture of Martin. The media continued to run their narrative that this was a raced based shooting to the point where NBC edited part of the Zimmerman 911 call, making it sound as if Zimmerman was a racist.
NBC later apologized for the editing "error" in the dialogue in George Zimmerman's taped 911 call during a segment on the Today Show.
On Today, the conversation with the dispatcher ran as follows:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black.

This is the call in context:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he's up to no good. Or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy - is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.

The misleading media continued right up to the trial and all the way through the trial. Ever so slightly slanting their reporting and conveniently leaving out key and relevant facts, so as to run their narrative that this was a race-based murder.

Now to August 9, 2014, an 18-year-old black male was shot and killed by a white Ferguson County police officer. Tragedy no matter how the case plays out. But let's look at how the MSM ran their narrative: First, we're told that Brown was shot in the back while fleeing police officer Darrin Wilson. When the autopsy report was concluded, it was determined that Mr. Brown was shot not in the back, but in the front.

We're told that Mr. Brown was just an ordinary teen who was soon heading off to college. Next, surveillance video comes out showing this young man strong arming a convenience store. In addition, the toxicology report determined that Mr. Brown had drugs in his system.

Now, we are not to make a determination from this information on the guilt or innocence of police officer Darren Wilson...my only point in presenting this perspective is to show how the leftist/progressive MSM run their narrative.

The MSM walked out witness that testified they saw Brown running from Darrin Wilson when he was shot...that has since been proven false after autopsy reports showed that Brown was shot not in the back, but in the front. There is other testimony of a struggle between Brown and Police officer Darrin Wilson, and that Mr. Wilson acted in self defense, sadly, this was not reported in the immediate opening of this story by the MSM.

Let me digress one more time. How many remember when in 2011 Gabrielle Gifford’s was shot by Jared Lee Loughner? The first reports by the leftist/progressive MSM was that the shooting was linked to a radical right-winged Tea Party group.

Nothing could have been further from the truth. Jared Lee Loughner was nothing more than a deranged man who acted solely on his own. But be damned with the facts....get the seeds planted and then retract. The seeds in this case were that if you are a Tea Party member, one who stands for low taxes and small government, you are a fringe person of society to be feared.

This case will play out...the wheels of justice will turn. But if it was left in the hands of the MSM, both Zimmerman, the Tea Party, and police officer Darren Wilson would all be guilty of murder.
