Newtown the Latest Example
of Media Overkill

American Thinker, by Pam Meister

Original Article

Posted By:Kitty Myers, 12/20/2012 11:18:19 AM

I have been a resident of Newtown for over 30 years, save for a few years in the 1990s. I attended high school here. My oldest went through the school system here and my youngest is still at the high school. {snip} On behalf of all us, I beg the media: Please go away. Please stop cold calling my friends who live in Sandy Hook for potential news nuggets. Please stop harassing people like my mother as they leave funerals. Please stop parking on people´s lawns without permission. Please just...stop. For those of us who even have the heart…

Vulture msm has an agenda.

It´s gun control.

They have not a care about the grieving community. It´s all for their cause.

Exploit the families at every turn.

I have stopped watching the news when the reporters with their concerned look come on. We all know it is ratings that is now driving this. I wish that the news would also leave those people alone and let their healing begin and let them comfort each other.

Excellent article but alas, the media are like ticks...once they latch onto something, they gorge themselves until there is no more blood. They then seek another victim...err, story!

I dream of the day that someone looks into the camera when an invasive reporter sticks the microphone in the person´s face and says "don´t all of you out there think these people are nothing but g-d vampires? They´re living off of the blood of others and pretending to be legitimately interested when all they want is more blood" or something like that. I like #3´s tick analogy, but it still seems to me that they are more like vampires - ticks at least don´t intend the harm they cause.

There might be some justification if some actual hard facts would come out. It seems the products of this harassment are merely rumor, speculation, and scam.

Allows them to aide and abet the gun grabbers in their next step, and gives them an excuse to ignore the Benghazi hearings and oblamer´s intransigence over the "fiscal cliff" negotions. Win win win for the socialist propaganda complex.

In addition to the on-site media, I have a huge problem with the TV doctors, psychiatrists, etc. who continue to diagnose and put labels on people they have never even seen. Those of us with someone we love who has aspergers just have to shake our heads and get angry. With each day that passes I have less and less respect for most of the media.

The media throughout have been reprehensible.

No sense of proportion, propriety, or humanity whatsoever.

By dumb [and bad] luck, I heard several minutes of Mike Gallagher the other day. ["The Happy Conservative Warrior" -- so he says; IMHO, you could stick your bare hand in a metaphorical knife-drawer full of Mike Gallaghers and pull it out without a scratch; same for several others.]

I thought the segment-opener was a parody of the media wallow re Newtown. Nope, It was his actual intro to the discussion or whatever he did from there. I hit the tuner button.

#5: The commercial aspect of all this is obvious and understood. But hey, drug dealers sell their stuff as part of an "economy." Buying and selling are legitimate acts. Choosing to make drugs the product traded isn´t. Same here. Furthermore, there is a huge difference of both kind and scale between an intrusive "journalist" [hah!] sticking a mike in the face of someone suffering hideous loss, doing it again and again [as well as searching-out people who might have been affected], with no honest human compassion, and any given private individual seeing it on their TV [or iPod, whatever], alone. All the more when they keep watching and keep watching the sufferers. A huge difference. Is that "rubbernecking" blameworthy? Yes. Are the actions of the media people far, far, far worse? Absolutely! Absolutely! Reporters and viewers are not at all "equally responsible," any more than the Boeing assemblers are as responsible as bin Laden or Atta for the 9/11/2001 murders.

#8: As your respect for the media declines, the accuracy of your opinion increases. Keep it up.

I never watch this stuff.

Kudos to this writer for telling it like it is.

The media have lied for decades about all school tragedies.
Friend of mine explained to us all about 50 years ago how CBS lied in their story about
Webster Groves.

These MSM Ho´s can put on their kneepads and line up for their five seconds with... Wacky Baracky.

They´re all in it together to screw normal people.
Bitter clingers with guns and Bibles.

This has given me much time to listen to my beautiful Christmas CD´s. This story was worn out to me by last Friday night. Once you cover the basics, that about does it except for the rubberneckers who have to hear every little detail.

Poster #13, you lasted until Friday night?

I was worn out the second time they repeated themselves without any accurate facts at all.

If I ruled the world, when something like this shooting happens, the TV stations would grow a brain and a conscience. They would "cut in" to programming no more than once in fifteen minutes and if they had updates, they could scroll it along either the top or bottom of the screen, while continuing "regular" programming.

I detest all those supposed "experts" being "interviewed" (actually spouting unproven theories) ad nauseum while never knowing any facts and just inflaming the public.

Not wishing ill on anyone else, but if there is another tragedy, they will be out of there in a flash.

It´s morbid curiosity.

Chicago Running Out of Euphemisms

Pity the poor Chicago reporter. She is running out of ways to describe black mob violence without using the words “black mob violence.”Reporting on race is usually not a problem. Every day she writes about black caucuses, black churches, black police, black firemen, black schools, black teachers, black universities, black history, black music, black literature, black art, black television, and black radio. {snip} It’s a pretty easy gig: Or it was until the black mobs started showing up three years ago. Since then Chicago has seen at least 50 episodes of black mob violence of all shapes and sizes

Obama to free hundreds of drug
felons under clemency rules
designed to un-do mandatory
sentences from ´War on Drugs´ era

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

Jeb Bush is your only chance

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:
´splurging is the key to life´

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Why Does Nation Tolerate A

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

   

 



 
Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

New York Post, by John Crudele    Original Article

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
