Post-trial, AP coverage of Rittenhouse worsens

It is one thing for Joy Reid and the crew at The View to wring their hands over the acquittal of the  Kyle Rittenhouse. They are idiot sock puppets of their corporate masters, Comcast and Disney, respectively. If they ever utter something sane, they will be pulled off the air.

But the world's most self-important news organization in the world, the Associated Press, ought to be celebrating that the presumption of innocence and the American judicial system saved an 18-year-old man from mob justice. Instead, AP sides with the mob.

Then again, AP should have played it straight in covering the trial. The ejection of objectivity by American journalists is an acknowledgement that liberty won't survive under globalism. We are all Peng Shuai now. American journalists are all LeBron James acting angry and self-righteous as they cower before their new masters.

AP's coverage of the trial was terrible. Its post-trial coverage is worse.

An example is "Rittenhouse acquittal tightens the political vise for Biden" by Aamer Madhani.

He wrote, "A difficult political atmosphere for President Joe Biden may have become even more treacherous with the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse.

"Biden was already facing sliding poll numbers with an electorate worn down by the coronavirus pandemic and increasing inflation. Now, the president finds himself caught between outraged Democrats — some of whom were already stewing over Biden’s inability to land police reform and voting rights legislation — and Republicans looking to use the Rittenhouse case to exploit the national divide over matters of grievance and race."

Poor Biden.

Everything bad seems to happen to him.

The story also said, "The acquittal of Rittenhouse has touched off new conversations about racial justice, vigilantism and policing in America. The Illinois teen armed himself with an AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle during an August 2020 protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, days after the shooting of a Black man by a white police officer. He said he came to small city to help protect a car lot from vandals and provide medical aid."

Not mentioned in the story was the fact that rioters indeed burned the car lot to the ground, destroying $2.5 million worth of vehicles.

The Democrat mayor ordered police to stand down.

The Democrat governor refused to send the National Guard to protect Kenosha.

A man stepped forward to try to protect his father's town.

The story said, "The verdict in the case comes at a moment when Biden is trying to keep fellow Democrats focused on passing his massive social services and climate bill and hoping to turn the tide with Americans who have soured on his performance as president."

Poor, poor pitiful he.

Another AP story said, "Hundreds protest Rittenhouse acquittal across US."

The headline originally said, "Windows smashed in downtown Portland Rittenhouse protest."

AP is fanning the flames of racial division in the United States at a time when the races have never been more united.

'Tis the power of the press to destroy America.

Or try.

Then there was "Black Americans see biased system in Rittenhouse verdict."

The story said, "Activists have previously pointed to differences in how police handled Rittenhouse’s case and that of Jacob Blake, the black man who was shot by a white Kenosha police officer in August 2020, sparking protests in the city that became destructive and violent.

"Video footage played during the trial showed Rittenhouse running toward police still wearing his rifle, and continuing past the police line at officers’ direction. He turned himself in to police in Antioch, Illinois, early the following day."

The story failed to mention that Blake was armed and confronting police while Rittenhouse was fleeing a mob of violent rioters.

I get that a few people are angry about the verdict. Lots of people are angry about lots of things. I just don't get why a few angry activists get a story addressing their grievances while the shopkeepers whose businesses were destroyed by those activists never get their side aired.

Justice prevailed in Kenosha, while journalism failed.

    1. Speaking of morons.... it occurred to me this past traveling weekend (and yes, i may be slow on the uptake) but these masks do have an upside. We can't get morons to have a designated tat on their forehead, but the mask becomes a suitable indicator. I saw many. It was refreshing to easily identify them.

    1. This evil Democrat is having her 15 minutes on Twitter.

      Mary Lemanski, who is listed as the social media director for the Democratic Party in DuPage County, began her heartless online tirade by snarkily dismissing the tragedy as “just self-defense.”

    2. Nice try at deflection, Jeffery.

      And, yes, the animal who plowed into the Dancing Grannies is quite the hater.

      Note how Fake News ignores a true race attack.

  4. The police involved in the Jacob Blake shooting were found to have acted justifiably in shooting and wounding him.

  5. Fuck Joe Biden and the AP.

    And Kenosha is the fourth largest city in Wisconsin. From where I come from, it is not a small city but a major one. A place I avoid.

  6. As I have said here before, journalism is dead. It is now a profession that I don't even recognize having worked as a journalist for 30 years. It is activism with activists writing up reports about how "they" see and feel events.

    1. Documents show Bill Gates has given $319 million to media outlets to promote his global agenda

      The Gates Foundation paid the entertainment industry to insert PSAs into its programming, and Bill Gates intervened to change storylines in popular shows like ER and Law & Order: SVU.

    2. Hi LuAnn, jounalism has always been used for nefarious means. Who killed Kennedy? It was not Lee Harvey Oswald from too far away with a s#it gun. 'Journalists' carried the day though.
      The only way to have some idea on what the real story may be, is to compare fake CNN, fake Fox, to a couple of outlets lying to people in other countries and a few true facts may seem evident.

  10. My daughter works in an environment which places her in daily contact with various media outlets. Some months ago, she said:

    "Dad, if you see or hear it the media, just presume it's 100% lies."

    The first time I questioned the media's honesty was when the God-like Edward R. Murrow did something in the 1960 election cycle entitled; "Harvest of Shame". It was a report on the plight of migrant workers and the purpose was to gin up support for increased welfare payments, including welfare for non-citizens. When the facts came to light, it was revealed that the report was shot through with half-truths and outright lies. SeeBS was well on its way to becoming what it is today. For those of us who served in Viet Nam, we also knew that Walter Krapkite - "the most trusted man in America" - was nothing but a Communist sympathizer lying to Americans five nights a week.

  11. AP is another fake news outlet that needs to be sued out of business.

    1. The AP was always liberal when I worked there in the 1980s and 1990s. But it still had people who wanted to get the story right, and editorializing in the reporting was (mostly) banned. I've long since left, but I still have some friends there and I can barely recognize this as the same company that used to take pride in being "newsmen" and "newswomen," not "journalists." Objectivity is long gone.

  13. I saw somewhere that the car lot Kyle was trying to defend (that lost $2.5 million of cars) was owned by his grandfather--is that true? If so, it is flat out evil that that fact has been suppressed. Pretty important fact. Makes it Self defense AND property defense. Also, where are the lawsuits by businesses that were harmed during this Kenosha riot and all the other riots by BLM/Antifa?

    1. A follow-up-- Just saw Tucker's interview with Kyle (part of it, rest is taped), and when they discussed Kyle's defending the car lot, there was no mention of it being owned by a relative. So I guess I heard incorrectly.

  15. Why do we have so much media bias? Some of it comes from the journalist's hearts, especially the younger, recently indoctrinated graduates. Some of it just comes from a young guns for hire mentality following the corporate overlords demands. Also now and most concerning is the government providing tax credits of perhaps $1.6 billion as proposed in Biden's social welfare bill. When the government funds the media, isn't that like Pravda?

  17. There is no news "coverage" in America. There is only the anti-white, anti-American narrative of the Cabal.

  18. I'm confident there us more than one attorney willing and ready to take Mr. Rittenhouse's defamation lawsuits. I hope he wins BIGLY. At least enough to silence the media liars for a few days.
