Dear Mass Media

     So tell me, please, why is is that when a crazed Right-wingish ex-mil guy in Alabama kills a bus driver, takes a child hostage and holes up in a bunker, his (probable) political leanings play a big ol' part in the story despite there being no sign so far of a manifesto or statement outlining them, but when a crazed Left-wingish,  ex-mil, ex-cop guy in California kills two or three people, threatens thousands more, leaves a trail of crime and damage across the state and drops out of sight, his politics get little or no mention even though he left a 22 page screed on Facebook, including gems like predicting Hillary Clinton will make a great President and expressing support for Senator Feinstein's latest gun-control bill?

     I mean, c'mon, either the politics of lunatic killers are of significance and interest, or they aren't; you don't get to bury it just because it might embarrass your side.  --That's not a plea or a reminder, it's a fact.  Welcome to the internet, mass media, and by the way:

     California Killer Cop A Staunch Democrat!

     Now, willya please just go back to your printing presses, microphones and cameras and try to remember to report the facts? All the facts?

You shall know the truth, and the truth shall be buried on page 43 below the story about the lost parakeet.

But they DO publish the Facts!

Just as soon as they get the latest Lohan pics from the Paparazzi.

They should also be warning people in LA not to drive blue pickups. LAPD seems to be pretty trigger happy right now.

Or as I like to refer to him, "The Deranged Cop-Killing Piers Morgan Fan."

Let's fix the headline:
Obama Sycophant Goes On Shooting Rampage, Killing Three So Far

(Some) Facts are inconvenient "bumps in the road" that get in the way of Feelings.

Obviously you think that the media's job is to report the news impartially.

As a one-time recipient of a very small scale media hatchet job, allow me to disabuse you all of that idea.

The media's job is to sell advertising and support whatever political agenda the reporters were taught in J school.

You forgot to close your sarcasm tag there and it spilled out all over your comments, too.

There. I fixed it for you. You're welcome.

Whatever gave you the idea that they were in the fact-reporting business? They merged themselves with the Left beginning decades ago. The news media is conducting Psywar on their behalf, or at least that's what it is starting to taste like.

The 2ACW is currently in the "Cold"
phase. We just haven't gotten around to the bullet catching contest yet.

Get it right. He's not a killer, he's a murderor. There's a big difference. BTW thanks for the headline, I will be ganking it and spreading it as far and wide as I can.
