WASHINGTON, March 22, 2017 – The always-alert crew at Instapundit highlights a NewsBusters piece commenting on how the media police are on constant alert to misreport the news—in this case, with reference to Wednesday’s terrorist attack on London civilians and police in the vicinity of Parliament.
“During MSNBC’s live breaking news coverage of the suspected terrorist attacks in London on Wednesday, NBC News reporter Matt Bradley reported via phone from the British capital and was more worried about the violence helping conservative politicians than he was about the victims: ‘We’ve seen this rise of a kind of a right-wing movement here and throughout Europe. And this is only going to put wind in the sails of those who would say that this is an issue that needs to be looked at, that needs to be examined in terms of refugees.’
“Desperately trying to downplay any possible connection to Islamic terrorism, Bradley touted: ‘But it should be noted, that MI-5, which is the domestic intelligence agency and police agency for the UK, they’ve come out and said that there is no terror link so far.’ Anchor Ali Velshi replied: ‘Yeah, good point. They’re saying that it’s too early to say, certainly, that it isn’t, they’re still trying to get it locked down.
“Only minutes later, London police announced that they were investigating the attacks as a ‘terrorist incident.’”(Bold text via NewsBusters.)
Better yet, Instapundit also provides an additional link to a chart that appeared over a year ago on Ricochet, another worthwhile site. The chart is the most accurate representation we’ve yet seen as to the standard MSM recipe for presenting reality in a drastically altered state when it comes to stories on criminal and terrorist violence, generally perpetrated on innocent citizens:
We’ll just leave it at that. But we’d also suggest you print, clip and save this chart and tack it to your bulletin board. It will make it far easier to parse what passes these days as “news,” helping you to ascertain the objective truth in the process.
