Our media business has fallen into the trap of taking sides. Many people throw heat at media outlets now for excessive WOKE coverage. As a result, lots of stories that may spotlight minority missteps are reduced in scope or ignored altogether. Media managers fear being labeled racist for prolonged reporting on stories involving crimes allegedly committed by minorities. That's a tricky measurement in today's WOKE culture. So many media outlets find themselves overplaying to the WOKE crowd to avoid blowback from Twitter bullies. The Cancel Culture is always ready to pounce on stories involving race. This week gave us two stark examples. SOHO Karen's first stories appeared 4 days ago. It's only a cell phone dispute but since there is a racial component
When loner maniac Anthony Warner parked his RV on Nashville's primary tourist street on Christmas morning, he opted to play a countdown evacuation warning that an explosion was coming. The recording was accurate. The entire RV exploded at 6:41 AM, damaging buildings and vehicles for several blocks. Scant human remains of Warner were identified in the rubble. Police were originally summoned to the area after gunshots were heard a few minutes earlier. Later intelligence suggests that the bomber played sound effects of shots fired. Was the maniac trying to lure first responders and cops into a death trap? We may never know. That lunatic is dead. Speculation is that he was paranoid about 5G service spying on people so he parked the RV
Here's the thought process emerging from people who believe that social workers should handle the majority of police work. Read the thread. But so long as we’re talking about what the “defund the police” movement could mean in practice – in addition to cutting budgets – here are some ideas.— David Menschel (@davidminpdx) June 7, 2020 And, of course, don't let your racist privilege limit criminal opportunities for a marginalized perpetrator. Criminals are people, too! They have lost their minds. 😂🤣🤬🤦🏻♂️ https://t.co/JDdzd7yCe6— Jeremy Cobb (@cobbycobb_UK) June 8, 2020 😳😳😳 pic.twitter.com/wWpwqgJ9if— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) June 10, 2020 Senator Kamala Harris sees a "re-imagining" of America's police.

Following the police shootings of Breonna Taylor and David McAtee, Louisville has been reeling from passionate street protests against police brutality. Riots and looting sprang forth on the edges of the peaceful protests so law enforcement added National Guard troops by order of Governor Andy Beshear. The move only heightened tensions. Here are some of the most poignant leadership, legal, and prominent voices who shared a radio microphone with me to talk about solving Louisville's issues of inequality and cracked security. #Louisville metro council member Jessica Green on @LMPD shooting of #DavidMcAtee, protest rioting, small business concerns, the city's future, more 🎙️ @840WHAS audio https://t.co/HNdwo2oLdy #BreonnaTaylor #GeorgeFloyd #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/gm2xzUJLmz— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) June 2, 2020 This @nytimes video adds much more context
Pete Buttigieg says there is "no evidence" that killing terrorist Qassam Soleimani made American safer pic.twitter.com/hWIEiRvzII— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) February 8, 2020 Americans can debate the value of Medicare for All, racial inequities, universal income, climate change, abortion, and hundreds of other topics. Every presidential candidate must understand the value of eradicating terrorists. The top priority of any society is protect its people. Qassem Soleimani dedicated his life to snuffing out the lives of thousands of others. The Iranian terrorist was personally responsible for the killing of hundreds of Americans and the wounding of thousands more. Pete Buttiegieg's response to the debate question will be used by opponents to show that he is a weak commander-in-chief candidate. It's disappointing that a
Five teenagers between ages 12 and 16 allegedly robbed Nashville singer Kyle Yorlets as he stood in his back yard. They demanded his car keys. Yorlets refused. One of the teens then shot Yorlets and all of the assailants fled in a stolen vehicle. The singer dragged himself back into his home and died a short time later. The 12-year-old criminal detailed for police the details of their crime spree including the murder and various car thefts, one from Oak Grove, Kentucky. The Nashville newspaper refused to identify the teens because of their "young age(s)." Is this responsible journalism? Shouldn't the public be informed of the identities of murderous citizens? What if any of these criminals somehow makes bond and is released?
