Journalistic Priorities

Poynter Online (second article on page):

Breaking news: journalists shot

Horrible news out of Central Florida. Two journalists for a TV station in Orlando were shot at the scene of a homicide investigation on Wednesday. Orange County Sheriff John Mina said one of the two has died. The journalists were from Spectrum News 13. In addition, a 9-year-old was also shot and killed.

According to reports, the journalists were on the scene of a homicide investigation where, earlier in the day, a woman had been shot. A 19-year-old man, Keith Melvin Moses, walked up to the Spectrum News van around 4:05 p.m. and shot a reporter and photographer. Both were rushed to the hospital where one was pronounced dead and the other was listed, as of Wednesday night, in critical condition. Names of the journalists had not been made public as of late Wednesday.

Moses then, according to Mina, went into a nearby house and shot a 9-year-old girl and her mother. The child was killed, and the mother was hospitalized in critical condition.

Mina said Moses is now in custody, and that Moses was also suspected in the first shooting earlier in the day. In a press conference, Mina said, "Why he shot them in that house (is) really unclear as to why he shot the news vehicle as well."

Mina added, "What a horrible day this has been for our community and our media partners. No one in our community, not a mother, not a 9-year-old, certainly not news professionals, should become the victim of gun violence in our community."

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted, "Our hearts go out to the family of the journalist killed today and the crew member injured in Orange County, Florida, as well as the whole Spectrum News team."

Terrible, horrible, heartbreaking news: Journalists shot.

Also, some fucking rando 9 year old kid died. Also some woman.

Fucking pigs.

The perp is, sadly for the media, Definitely Not a White Supremacist,* so unfortunately the mourning for the journalists he shot will be, by media rules, extremely brief.

The media is refusing to show the gunman. They show the crime scene, but not the actual criminal.

Journalists have cheered on the "decarceration" agenda and are the handmaidens of the crimewave. They are the stewards of mass murder.

Will there be a single spoken word about the media's responsibility for this murderous climate?

* Or who knows: Maybe he has "Internalized White Supremacy" or is "White Supremacy-Adjacent." As MSNBC's Wajahat Ali said about Nikki Haley on the Mehdi Hasan show: "she uses her brown skin to launder white supremacy," and, "sometimes skinfolk ain't kinfolk."

Hasan invites Ali on to say this kind of thing, and allows him to say it without pushback.

Remember, Whyt Pipo, don't be so obsessed with race. Just let it go already and follow the example of your Racial Superiors.

"journalists" are always talking about how brave they are and how DANGEROUS their jobs are but notice how very rare it is to ever hear of a journalist being killed or even smacked.

I mean -- in like third world countries, it does happen. but not where Jake Tapper works. and he's always talking about how BRAVE he is.

Jim Acosta too. Why, on several occasions, Trump supporters chanted "CNN Sucks!" at him. It was Literal Violence.

Also, one time, a slender 20 year old female intern attempted to take the microphone from his hand when he was monopolizing it at a press conference, but he bravely assaulted this 95 pound girl out of his news-shot.
