Answer me this question:

If you had the opportunity to communicate to millions of people worldwide about anything you wanted. What would you choose? Anything. You could let them know, inform them, keep them up to date on anything.
If you had that opportunity, would you choose this?

Is this like when the MSM showed every body bag when Bush was POTUS bet never showed a single one when Obama was POTUS?

These questions are fun because they can be answered with their own damning questions.

I would inform the news "consumer" that the chances of me telling them the truth about anything is very, very low. Because any "news" I tell them is controlled by 6 huge corps and that we control almost all of what they see, hear and read.

The job of the news is, or at least should be, to report events.

A police officer getting shot is an event last I checked. A bad one too, police officers shouldn't be getting shot.

Is their job to report ALL events?

Sure, if they can, why not?

Why are you taking issue with this anyway?

What are you talking about? The ban on showing fallen soldiers has been around for a while, and included Bush.

First Photos of Fallen Soldier Ends 18-Year Ban


For the first time since the Obama administration reversed an 18-year-old ban on news coverage of returning fallen soldiers, the military allowed media to cover the arrival tonight of an airman killed in Afghanistan.

Are you saying they cover too many negative things and should cover more positive things, or that they should cover "important" things?

If not, I'm not sure I get your point in the OP.

Can they report on ALL the events that happen in the United States in one day, much less the world?

Probably not.

I don't get why you're so objectionable to the News telling people a police officer got shot.

No, it's impossible.

But the news is agenda driven; Fox, for one, loves to report any time a member of LEO is the victim of any kind of violence to drive their "war on cops" agenda.

I have to disagree. There is always a war going on between criminals and cops.

I don't understand your objections to the story.

In terms of the quality of the reporting itself, it's very poor, with virtually no information beyond that an LEO was shot. How many times? Where was he/she struck? What condition is the officer in? Where did it happen? What led up to the shooting? What happened after the shooting? Do they know who the perp is? Do they know why the perp shot the officer? Were there any witnesses? Any arrests?

But I have no problem with the event being reported in and of itself. Indeed, if there were a serial LEO killer on the loose, then the public should be informed and aware. I'm sure LEO anywhere and everywhere would like to know that the public at large has their back.

At least in my paradigm. As I've been personally told by more than one LEO, we are a team -- Law Enforcement and the public -- and we have to work together for the safety of all. Maybe your paradigm is different?

If I could tell them anything it would be,

Get your fat ass off the sofa, turn the TV off, start walking everyday with a clean diet not KFC, get off the meds that are f#cking you over..

Climb a mountain, ride a bike, get a partner that f#ck's real good, travel to places that you cannot spell. Set yourself high standards, celebrity are the basement of human accomplishment....



Imagine what you miss when just sit on the couch watching this dribble..

That is not what I remember at all. What I remember is that during the Vietnam Conflict, one of the reasons stated by the war machine as to the public outcry was because they were seeing those flag drapped body bags all the time on the tube.

So when the Bush crowd took us in to the ME full time, they didn't want to rile up the peasants with those images on a nightly basis and so put the kybosh on press being allowed to film the off loading.

It is called capitalism. In the US you are allowed to make a profit even it means screwing over your neighbor. All the MSM is trying to do is make a profit. Alt right wingers should rejoice as all CNN and Fox news are doing is practicing capitalism and maximizing profits. Common people should be aware of this and take the crap these networks spew out because in the end it is just about profit and financial gain. a reply to: Aristotelian1
