Media Bias: coverage of govt shutdown victims vs. Obamacare victims 100 to 1

Ministry of Truth

The Mainstream Media continue to be whores for President Lucifer.

The media’s coverage of “victims” of the recent federal government shutdown vs. their coverage of victims of Obamacare is a shocking ratio of 100 to 1.

Ben Shapiro reports for Truth Revolt, Oct. 17, 2013, that since October 1, when the government shutdown began, the media have run dozens upon dozens of stories about victims of the shutdown. Over the same period of time, the media have run virtually no stories about businesses suffering thanks to Obamacare, low-income people victimized by the new Obamacare tax, and economic chaos thanks to the impact of Obamacare.

The Washington Post was a key offender in its bias, with over 220 stories on the supposedly horrible effects of the government shutdown vs. only 3 stories on the individuals and small businesses victimized by Obamacare.

The New York Times ran well over 80 stories about victims of the government shutdown, but ran zero stories about those negatively affected by Obamacare.

The story was the same on television. From October 1 to October 15, ABC World News with Diane Sawyer spent approximately 21 minutes over the course of eight broadcasts covering stories of the shutdown and its effects on victims. Over the course of the same period, ABC News covered Obamacare twice, and then only to point out website difficulties quickly but praise Obamacare overall. There were no stories of victims of Obamacare in that entire period.

Brian Williams’ NBC Nightly News was no better. From October 1 to October 16, the program spent over 30 minutes discussing victims of the government shutdown. All Obamacare coverage was relegated to discussion of website glitches, but no actual victims of Obamacare were shown.

CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley had approximately 27 minutes worth of stories on government shutdown victims. Aside from segments about the Obamacare glitches, there were no stories about victims of Obamacare. There was a two minute segment about evil Republican governors who hadn’t expanded Medicaid under Obamacare, however. So much for Pelley’s “real consequences for real people”.

Overall, the Washington Post and New York Times covered victims of the government shutdown over victims of Obamacare by a margin of 100 to 1; ABC, NBC, and CBS News all covered victims of the government shutdown over victims of Obamacare by a margin of over 78 minutes to zero.

CBS News: U.S. State Department Cover-Ups Range From Prostitution Charges to Drug Rings

http://washington.cbslocal.com           June 10, 2013 9:44 AM

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Uncovered documents show the U.S. State Department may have covered up allegations of illegal behavior ranging from sexual assaults to an underground drug ring.

CBS News reports that is has unearthed documents from the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS), an internal watchdog agency, that implicate the State Department in a series of misconducts worldwide.

The memo, reported by CBS News’ John Miller, cited eight specific examples, including allegations that a State Department security official in Beirut “engaged in sexual assaults” with foreign nationals hired as embassy guards and the charge and that members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries” — a problem the report says was “endemic.”

Former State Department internal investigator Aurelia Fedenisn told CBS News, “We also uncovered several allegations of criminal wrongdoing in cases, some of which never became cases.”

Often times, other DSS agents were simply told to back off of investigations of high-ranking State Department members. Fedenisn told CBS that “hostile intelligence services” allow criminal behavior to continue.

In one such cover-up, investigators were told to stop probing the case of a U.S. ambassador who was suspected of patronizing prostitutes in a public park. The memo states that the ambassador was permitted to return to his post despite having, “routinely ditched…his protective security detail” in order to “solicit sexual favors from prostitutes.”

A draft of the Inspector General’s report on the performance of the Diplomatic Security Service, obtained by CBS News, states, “Hindering such cases calls into question the integrity of the investigative process, can result in counterintelligence vulnerabilities and can allow criminal behavior to continue.”

Fedenisn was part of the team that drafted the whistleblower report, and CBS News reports that two hours after the charges were reported, investigators from the State Department’s Inspector General showed up at her door.

A statement to CBS News states, “It goes without saying that the Department does not condone interference with investigation by any of its employees.”

A Colorado school principal is apologizing after he mailed parents a letter informing them that an after-school tutoring program was for non-whites only.

Andre Pearson, the principal at Mission Viejo Elementary School in Aurora, also left a voice mail message confirming that the program excluded whites.

It’s focused for and designed for children of color,” Principal Pearson said in a voicemail to parent Nicole Cox. “If we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs.”

The voicemail was obtained by CBS-4 News in Denver.

I was infuriated,” Cox told the television station. “I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups.”

Cox, who is white, said her daughter needed tutoring.

We have come so far in all these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally – this is a form of bullying,” she said.

Tustin Amole, the director of communications for the Cherry Creek School District, told Fox News it was simply a mistake.

The communication the principal sent out was wrong,” she said. “He made a mistake and he has apologized for that.”

Amole said the tutoring program was created last year in a partnership with parents of color. The purpose of the program was to talk about how the school could meet the needs of their children.

We have a performance plan for the entire school district and a very big piece of that is excellence in equity – narrowing our achievement gap,” she said.

Amole said white students were a part of the program last year and this year. Approximately 44 percent of the children in the district are non-white.

No one is turned away,” she said. “There is no segregation. We serve the needs of all children.”

She would not comment on whether the principal faces disciplinary action. However, she did say that parents would be receiving an apology letter and it would also be posted on the school’s website.

20 Children Among 26 Dead In Newtown Elementary School Massacre

Gunman Opens Fire Inside Sandy Hook Elementary School Early Friday

NEWTOWN, Conn. (CBSNewYork) –

Twenty children are among 27 people who were killed Friday morning after a gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

State Police Lt. Paul Vance said 18 children and 6 adults were pronounced dead at that scene. Two other children later died at the hospital.

Among those dead is the gunman, identified as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, 20-year-old Adam Lanza. He was found dead inside the building from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, sources told CBS 2.

The shooting has become the second-deadliest school shooting in the nation’s history, exceeded only by the 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech.

A 28th victim, an adult male, was found dead at a secondary crime scene, Lance said. He would not elaborate on the details.

Lance said the shooting occurred in two different classrooms in one section of the school.

One of the adult victims is Lanza’s mother who was a teacher at the school, sources told CBS 2. Some of the child victims were her students, sources said.

I can’t go on. Rest of tragedy HERE!!

Free Kittens.

 

A little girl named Suzy was standing on the sidewalk in front of her home. Next to her was a basket containing a number of tiny creatures; in her hand was a sign announcing FREE KITTENS.

Suddenly a line of big black cars pulled up beside her. Out of the lead car stepped a tall, grinning man.”Hi there little girl, I’m President Obama . What do you have in the basket?” he asked.

Kittens,” little Suzy said. How old are they?” asked Obama. Suzy replied, “They’re so young, their eyes aren’t even open yet.” “And what kind of kittens are they?” “Democrats,” answered Suzy. Obama was delighted.

As soon as he returned to his car, he called his PR chief and told him about the little girl and the kittens. Recognizing the perfect photo op, the two men agreed that the president should return the next day; and in front of the assembled media, have the girl talk about her discerning kittens.

So the next day, Suzy was again standing on the sidewalk with her basket of “FREE KITTENS,” when another motorcade pulled up, this time followed by vans from ABC , NBC, CBS and CNN. Cameras and audio equipment were quickly set up, then Obama got out of his limo and walked over to little Suzy. “Hello, again,” he said, “I’d love it if you would tell all my friends out there what kind of kittens you’re giving away.”

“Yes sir,” Suzy said. “They’re Republicans.”

Taken by surprise, the president stammered, “But. but… yesterday, you told me they were DEMOCRATS.”

Little Suzy smiled and said, “I know, but today, they have their eyes open.”

CBS Reporter Lara Logan Attacked by 200 Men

Stripped, punched and whipped with flag poles: Full horror of Lara Logan’s attack emerges

By Daily Mail Reporter - Feb 21, 2011

More details have emerged of Lara Logan’s terrifying ordeal at the hands of a frenzied mob.

The 39-year-old foreign correspondent for CBS News show 60 Minutes was separated from her film crew in Cairo on February 11 and surrounded by as many as 200 men in Tahrir Square at the height of the anti-Mubarak demonstrations. According to one source, reported in The Sunday Times newspaper, sensitive parts of her body were covered in red marks that were originally thought to have been bite marks. After further examination they were revealed to be from aggressive pinching.

It has also been revealed that she was stripped, punched and slapped by the crowd, which was labelling her a spy and chanting ‘Israeli’ and ‘Jew’ as they beat her. 

And medical sources have revealed that marks on her body were consistent with being whipped and beaten with the makeshift poles that were used to fly flags during the demonstration.

An unnamed friend of the reporter told The Sunday Times: ‘Lara is getting better daily. The psychological trauma is as bad as, if not worse than, the physical injuries. She might talk about it at sometime in the future, but not now.’

Despite her ordeal, Miss Logan intends to return to work, as well as the Middle East. CBS News was not revealing any more information about the incident, except to say that she was the victim of a ‘brutal and sustained assault’ at the hands of around 200 men who had been ‘whipped into a frenzy’ on the night Hosni Mubarak resigned from power. Guards who had escorted her into the square were also badly beaten by the mob, with one suffering a broken hand, and it took women in the square and about 20 soldiers to finally rescue her from her attackers.

She was taken to the Four Seasons hotel, where she was treated and sedated by the hotel doctor. Within hours of the attack she was was flown out of the country and spent five days in a New York hospital.

Witnesses say the mainly peaceful protests to end Mubarak’s rule had taken a more violent turn after the Egyptian president announced his resignation. The military presence controlling the amount of people entering Tahrir Square seemed to evaporate, and an angrier element had flowed in. Miss Logan was attacked around 1am as she filmed in the square.

Egyptian state media had been publishing negative stories about foreign journalists, with many reports alleging that many Israeli spies were masquerading as news crews. Days before her attack, Miss Logan had been held in Alexandria on suspicion of being foreign spies.
