Alabama High School Mass Shooting with 10 Victims Largely Ignored by Fake News Media

It is being ignored because it doesn’t fit the narrative.

A high school in Mobile, AL was the sight of the country’s latest mass shooting on Friday night, after 10 teenagers were shot during a football game.

Deangelo Parnell, 17, has been charged with nine counts of attempted murder and taken in by authorities in the aftermath of the gun attack. Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste made a comment against young people “bringing their beefs that they have with each other in their neighborhoods” into public and carelessly “putting people in harm’s way.”

“Our children and their families deserve to enjoy a high school football game or any public event without the thought of gun violence,” Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson said in a statement.

“As a community, we will heal. As a community, we have to get the guns out of the hands of our youth,” he added.

Horrifying footage of the football team scurrying to take cover and dodge bullets was posted onto social media following the shooting:

Battiste believes that Parnell’s alleged rampage “may have been a directed threat at one or two individuals and other people just happened to fall prey to their carelessness.”

In the chaos of the scene, one individual suffered a seizure while another individual hurt their hand. It is unclear whether they were shot, or got injured as everyone was running for their lives after gunfire was heard.

“Why are young people bringing this type of violence to public events?” Battiste said at a news conference. “We’re gonna have to be more aggressive on our end as a city as to how we hold these individuals accountable.”

Parnell turned himself in to authorities at 3:30 am, and his bond hearing is scheduled to take place on Monday. Battiste claims that the surveillance footage from the high school makes it “very clear” that Parnell was the individual responsible for the shooting.

Although 10 people were struck during this mass shooting and the incident has deeply shaken the community, there is no wall-to-wall coverage about it from the fake news. Although news entities have picked up on the story, it is not dominating the headlines and being talked about constantly by the cable news networks.

After this month’s tragedies in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH, they were reported on for weeks and used to justify a pre-crime crackdown against the supposed terrorist threat of white supremacists. The silence, in comparison to the coverage of those deadly events, is deafening.

The overwhelming difference in coverage from the fake news is likely because the incident doesn’t fit into their contrived “white supremacy” narrative, as the suspected perpetrator of the heinous act is a black man in an African-American community.

To the fake news, black lives don’t matter in mass shootings because they cannot be exploited to push gun control and the demonization of American patriots.

SILVER LINING? Coronavirus Economic Fallout Expected to Destroy Hundreds of Main Stream Newspapers, Magazines

The fake news media is dying even more quickly because of coronavirus.

The coronavirus pandemic is expected to cause massive economic damage throughout many sectors, and what remains of the legacy journalism industry may be wiped out as a result.

The Seattle Times serves as a microcosm for what is happening to local papers throughout America in the age of coronavirus. As they deal with a community ravaged by the pandemic, their advertising budget has completely dried up, and they may not be able to remain in business for much longer.

“Virtually all entertainment advertising is gone, restaurants gone. Automobile advertising is starting to get impacted,” said Alan Fisco, the president and CFO of the paper, to BuzzFeed News.

Even though the paper’s “online traffic has been at times off the charts,” they are unable to properly monetize that traffic. They fear that the ad revenue may be lost forever by the time the coronavirus pandemic comes to a close.

“If you go back to events in the past where you’ve seen some big impacts [to ad spending], does all of it come back? It hasn’t,” Fisco said.

Ken Doctor, who analyzes the news industry with the firm Newsonomics, believes that the economic impact caused by the coronavirus pandemic will be much worse for the media industry than the 2008 financial crisis, which resulted in a 19 percent decline in revenue for newspapers.

“[Newspaper] advertising revenue is getting just wiped out,” Doctor said to BuzzFeed News, adding that the situation is already “worse than in 2008 and 2009.”

For many media entities, Doctor believes that this will be the end. He said that “this seems like for them truly it is the full extinction event. I don’t know how they come back.”

The Seattle Times may be able to survive due to rising subscriber fees. Other big-name dailies – like the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post – are expected to weather the storm as well. However, all of the smaller local newspapers and digital providers will likely be wiped out completely.

“I think there we will unfortunately see more closures of newspapers, more news deserts as a result of this,” Fisco said.

Media companies and reporters are already reporting on the early damage that has been caused because of the coronavirus pandemic.

A spokesperson for BuzzFeed News, who published the initial story about how the media industry is hurting because of coronavirus, said their provider is working to avoid firing staffers in these trying times.

“BuzzFeed’s leadership team is exploring a range of ways to support employees while protecting our business,” said Chief Communications Officer Carole Robinson. “Our goal is to avoid layoffs, with an alternative plan that requires some sacrifice from all of us — and especially those on the executive team — ultimately allowing us to remain a strong company over the long-term.”

The coronavirus pandemic is a worst case scenario come to life, but the economic fallout from the crisis may prove to be fatal for the fake news industry.
