St. Michael, the thug: The media bias in Ferguson

WASHINGTON, August 19, 2104 — Call a priest. The myth of the objective, unbiased press is past the point of needing the last rites.

It needs a burial.

The media is a slave to its dogma and follows that dogma with a zeal that would make Torquemada and Joseph Goebbles proud.

When a white man kills a black man, the facts suddenly become irrelevant. All that matters is the narrative. The narrative is given by the media, blessed be the name of the narrative. The first thing the left wing media does is to sanctify the victim.

This was done in the Trayvon Martin case and is now being done in the Michael Brown case.

Trayvon Martin was a little thug, well on his way to a prison cell. He had stolen jewelry in his backpack at school. He fought with other people, used drugs and had twitter pictures that suggested he had purchased a handgun.

Martin tried to engage in the “knock out” game against George Zimmerman. He used a racist description of Zimmerman right before he attacked him.

The media did their best to bury those facts. When photos of the two were shown on TV or in print, it was a photo of George Zimmerman, unshaven and looking menacing juxtaposed against a photo of Martin as a 13 year old.

Zimmerman was immediately disparaged as a racist even though his history showed just the opposite. He was described as “half white, Hispanic.”  In order to demonize him, Zimmerman had to be at least partially white.

When the conservative media and blogosphere exposed the truth about Trayvon Martin, they were denounced as racists even though every word about Martin was true.

When Michael Brown was killed, the same liberal media spun into action. The narrative was quickly established. Officer Darren Wilson was a racist simply because he was white. The media ignored information released by the police department that Officer Warren had injuries consistent with being in a fight.

The media quickly tried to establish the narrative that Michael Brown was a “gentle giant.” AP, ignoring its own stylebook, kept referring to him as a “teenager,” even though the stylebook that reporters are supposed to follow mandates that someone over 18 be referred to as an adult.

CNN showed photos of Brown, perhaps unaware that in some photos Brown was flashing gang signs.

Then over the objections of the Department of Justice, the Ferguson Police Department released video showing Brown committing a strong armed robbery minutes before he was killed.

Oops, there goes the narrative.

The media dutifully reported the family’s claim that telling the truth about Brown was character assassination. Calling a cop who acted in self-defense a racist even though there is no proof of that is fine, but pointing out that Brown really was a criminal is character assassination.

The flames of Ferguson have been flamed by the media lynch mob. Some of the media, such as Chris Hayes from the Karl Marx channel (AKA MSNBC) have called for Darren Wilson’s arrest.  Ignore the fact there is no proof of criminal acts by Wilson, the narrative must be fulfilled.

If anyone believes the media is unbiased and objective, well you probably believe that both Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown were choirboys. And there is some ocean front property in Tennessee that might interest you as well.

Judson Phillips
Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet. A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says. Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC. “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based. Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville. Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’ I did.” The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown. It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed. Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker. He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should. He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
