  • Walter Lippmann explains why journalists apply the label of protesters to rioters

    05/31/2020 8:14:37 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 11 replies
    Journalism today likes to provoke us, do you feel provoked? In the blueprint for modern journalism, "Public Opinion", Lippmann wrote on Page 355 the following: It is a problem of provoking feeling in the reader, of inducing him to feel a sense of personal identification with the stories he is reading. News which does not offer this opportunity to introduce oneself into the struggle which it depicts cannot appeal to a wide audience. The audience must participate in the news, much as it participates in the drama, by personal identification. Just as everyone holds his breath when the heroine is...
  • Trump's press secretary smacks down a stupid liberal question about COVID-19 deaths

    Kayleigh McEnany's White House press briefings instantly became must-watch TV when she first took the podium on May 1. You need only watch one to see why, and it's not because of her looks. Or at least not entirely. The one on Tuesday, May 26, was particularly entertaining, first as a display of a certain kind of journalism and second as show of how faulty data can still have their uses. The fireworks began when Ryan Lizza had his chance to pop a question. Lizza is a decent representative of the type. Since graduating from U.C. Berkeley in the mid-1990s,...

    A black CNN reporter was arrested live on air on Friday morning by Minnesota State Patrol while reporting on the killing of George Floyd, a black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for eight minutes. CNN correspondent Omar Jimenez was put in handcuffs and led away from his team of producers this morning at 5.11am CT after the team was moved down the street by police in riot gear. According to one of his colleagues, the crew was told he was being arrested for refusing to move when he'd been told to but he...

    CNN network president Jeff Zucker said in a company-wide memo Wednesday that “the majority” of CNN employees will not return to the network’s office this year due to health concerns stemming from the Chinese coronavirus, according to a report. Zucker wrote, as was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter: We expect that the majority of you will not be able to return to our offices this calendar year. What happens after that is still a question mark, as well. No doubt the world, and our understanding of the way COVID-19 continues to shape our lives and our work, will change countless times...
  • NBC Bans Reporters From Using The Word ‘Riot’ In Coverage Of Minnesota Riots

    NBC is prohibiting reporters from using the word “riot” in its coverage of violent outbursts in Minnesota that have occurred in response to the killing of George Floyd. “While the situation on the ground in Minneapolis is fluid, and there has been violence, it is most accurate at this time to describe what is happening there as ‘protests’–not riots,” NBC host Craig Melvin wrote on Twitter Thursday.

    CNN political analyst and Politico writer Ryan Lizza decided during Monday’s briefing to follow girlfriend Olivia Nuzzi from April 27 and ask a snarky question about how many deaths would be acceptable to the White House in terms of President Trump’s reelection prospects. The only difference here was Nuzzi tried to trap Trump whereas Lizza’s verbal grenade was lobbed at White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. And as has been the case during McEnany’s tenure, the reporter in question became incensed.

    An MSNBC camera crew was caught off guard after a man recorded several members of the crew not wearing masks while they did a report scolding other people for not wearing masks. "Are they not worried about their own personal safety?" host Katy Tur asked a masked Cal Perry of those not wearing masks in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. "You can see here, just around, nobody is wearing them," Perry said. "Including the cameraman," said a bystander, who gestured to Perry's team. "Half your crew isn't wearing them, either."

    President Trump is facing intense backlash for celebrating the recent layoffs that took place at the liberal magazine The Atlantic. Last week, The Atlantic became the latest of several news outlets that have cut its staff amid the coronavirus pandemic, detailing in a memo to staff that 68 of their colleagues were let go, resulting in a cut of roughly 17 percent of all of the magazine's employees. Roughly 40 million Americans have lost their jobs since the beginning of the pandemic. On Tuesday night, Trump touted the layoffs from the magazine whose coverage has been largely critical of the...

    On Sunday's AM Joy, during a discussion of what presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should offer to black voters in exchange for their support, race-obsessed MSNBC host Joy Reid twice claimed that President Donald Trump promised white Americans that he would take actions against "brown immigrants." She also suggested that Italy has done a better job of handling the coronavirus epidemic than President Trump even though the per capita death rate there is substantially higher than in the U.S. At 10:08 a.m. Eastern, as she spoke with MSNBC contributor and future Biden campaign member Karine Jean-Pierre, Reid declared that...

    A book published 66 years ago and still in print is an essential reference for understanding most of the data that you see about the pandemic afflicting the world today.  Written by Darrell Huff and illustrated by Irving Geis, How to Lie With Statistics is both sardonic and a serious lesson in the abuse of math for propaganda.  Whether or not it was studied by our Trump-hating media anxious to make the U.S. look bad, some of its lessons are being employed. A few days ago, we learned that the mortality rate from the coronavirus is lower than touted by the "experts."  Much lower.  As in, similar to the...

    AG ^ | May 24, 2020 | By Victor Davis Hanson
    As a general rule, when the New York Times, the Washington Post, National Public Radio, Public Broadcasting Service, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN begin to parrot a narrative, the truth often is found in simply believing just the opposite. Put another way, the media’s “truth” is a good guide to what is abjectly false. Perhaps we can call the lesson of this valuable service, the media’s inadvertent ability to convey truth by disguising it with transparent bias and falsehood, the “Doctrine of Media Untruth.” Take the strange case of the respective records of liberal New York Governor Andrew Cuomo...

    Just when the public needed the media to play it straight, the growing bias in the press let them down and made the coronavirus crisis “worse than it needed to be,” according to a new analysis. Already facing a substantial trust gap, the latest Gallup/Knight Foundation survey found that people in the United States were concerned about the media exaggerating the illness or downplaying how the crisis caused substantial harm.

    If the media is looking for a symbol of 'deviancy' in our politics that only '[makes] things worse,' they should stop looking at the press secretary and instead look in the mirror. New White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany isn’t letting so-called journalists get away with inane questions in the briefing room at the expense of real news, and the media don’t like it.This was on full display over the weekend during the latest media-Trump administration go-around, when McEnany sparred with reporters over the Obama administration’s malfeasance with regard to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.After a contentious exchange about...

    Between the three evening newscasts, there was 187 seconds of coverage, or about a minute each. ABC and CBS turned to political reporters, but NBC anchor Lester Holt dismissed the whole thing in 21 seconds. . . . ABC and CBS both “balanced” Biden’s gaffe with bad news for Trump. ABC’s Mary Bruce ran down a list of Trump’s apparently racist statements, and CBS’s Ed O’Keefe dragged out their polling showing Biden was winning black voters by a score of 90 percent to three percent.

    On Friday, Joe Biden ended an interview with “The Breakfast Club” by saying “you got more questions, but I’ll tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” The Biden campaign attempted to spin the comment (with help from the media of course) before Joe ended up apologizing. Washington Post opinion writer Paul Waldman writes that Biden’s comment “made his allies cringe and gave his opponents the opportunity for fake outrage.” But fortunately, nobody is expected to have to think for themselves when it comes to this issue: Some thoughts...
