The mainstream press went bonkers over the weekend after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested an illegal immigrant while he was driving his pregnant wife to the hospital, but left out a key fact in order to make the law enforcement agency seem cruel.
Jose Arrona Lara was arrested at a gas station in San Bernardino, CA while driving his wife Maria del Carmen Venegas, to the hospital for a scheduled cesarean section.
An ICE official confirmed that Arrona Lara was wanted on homicide charges.
“Mr. Arrona-Lara was brought to ICE’s attention due to an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Mexico on homicide charges,” ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Daniel Dale of CBS Los Angeles posted a viral tweet about the incident, which garnered nearly 27,000 retweets.

Only later did he clarify that Arrona Lara was wanted for murder, in a Tweet that received only about 1,000 retweets.
Important update: ICE said today that this man was arrested because of a homicide warrant for him in Mexico. ICE didn’t mention this in its comments to media yesterday. His lawyer says he denies that there are such Mexico charges; no details from ICE yet. https://t.co/AnIfv8DapM

This is how the mainstream press obfuscates the truth. They whipped up a frenzy of outrage around ICE, but failed to mention that they were taking a violent criminal off the streets.
“OMFG. ICE detained a husband as he was driving his wife for a C-section. She had to drive herself to hospital. The cruelty and inhumanity of this regime!” Tweeted writer Amy Siskind.

“ICE detained Joel while he drove his wife to the hospital to deliver their baby. How is government serving its purpose here? How does this better society? This leaves a mom without a partner, a baby without a father, and us without a soul.
#AbolishICE,” wrote failed Michigan gubernatorial candidate Adbul El-Sayed, who ran on a platform of abolishing the law enforcement entity.

Some prominent commentators reacted rationally.
“This article epitomizes
#FakeNews by leaving out the little detail that the guy is wanted for murder in Mexico,” wrote author Dinesh D’Souza on Twitter.

Fake News Stands with Disgraced Masturbator Jeffrey Toobin After He Exposed Himself to Professional Colleagues
This is fine behavior, according to liberals.
One day after embarrassing news dropped regarding CNN propagandist Jeffrey Toobin whipping it out and masturbating during a Zoom call, the fake news is already jumping to the pervert’s defense.
Jonathan Zimmerman of the New York Daily News has written a pro-Toobin op/ed claiming that Americans are only dismayed by his indecent exposure because of their puritan attitudes on sex and masturbation.
“We Americans love to talk — and talk, and talk — about sex. But there’s one topic that remains taboo, and Toobin is paying the price for it,” Zimmerman wrote.
Even though Zimmerman noted that Toobin has a history of questionable sexual behavior, he claimed without evidence that it is Americans who are wrong for chiding Toobin for pulling out his member and flogging it on camera in front of his journalist colleagues.
“According to a 2016 survey, 95% of men and 81% of women in America have masturbated. Yet in the same poll, over half of respondents said they felt uncomfortable talking about it,” Zimmerman wrote. “So we joke about it, instead, which relieves our anxieties but reinforces the taboo. Witness the outpouring of juvenile humor over the past two days about “Toobin his own horn,” his “sticky situation,” and so on.”
“News flash: Toobin masturbates. But I’m guessing that you do the same, dear reader. Maybe you should stop feeling weird and guilty about that. Then we can all stop making fun of Jeffrey Toobin,” he concluded.
Big League Politics reported on Toobin’s perilous situation on Monday without any of Zimmerman’s bizarre apologetics:
A liberal journalist and CNN legal analyst has been suspended from his position at New Yorker magazine after he appears to have exposed his penis during a Zoom call.
Jeffrey Toobin reportedly revealed his genitalia during a teleconference call between New Yorker employees and personnel of a New York radio station. He says that the exposure was totally unintentional, and that he wasn’t aware his camera feed was streaming to other people.
The CNN pundit, who is known for delivering Russian collusion conspiracy theories, apologized for the wardrobe malfunction in a statement provided to Vice. “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” said Toobin.
New Yorker spokeswoman Natalie Raabe went on to confirm that Toobin has been suspended as the matter is investigated. A CNN representative also confirmed that the media personality is on “time off” from on-air appearances with the channel…
Vice is now reporting that Toobin was caught outright masturbating during the zoom conference call.
“The two sources described a juncture in the election simulation when there was a strategy session, and the Democrats and Republicans went into their respective break out rooms for about 10 minutes. At this point, they said, it seemed like Toobin was on a second video call. The sources said that when the groups returned from their break out rooms, Toobin lowered the camera. The people on the call said they could see Toobin touching his penis. Toobin then left the call. Moments later, he called back in, seemingly unaware of what his colleagues had been able to see, and the simulation continued.”
Toobin probably won’t even lose his job over behavior that would likely land those of us who do not have a privileged media perch behind bars. The lack of virtue and common decency among modern journalists is evident.
