REPORT: The Media Writes 1,656 Times More Political Violence Stories When The “Victim” Is A Leftist

Published

Research by the Media Research Center shows that 91 percent of media coverage of President Donald Trump is negative. But based on research done by watchdog group Far Left Watch, it appears that negativity may extend further than just the president, effecting anybody perceived to be on the right.

Far Left Watch finds that the media is much more likely to cover political violence when the victim is on the left side of the political persuasion, using the recent suspicious packages sent to left-wing targets compared to the toxic ricin letters sent to multiple Republican targets.

As can be seen in the screenshot below, the ricin story, using the name of the alleged sender in the search brings up 2,270 news results, while the suspicious packages brings up 3,760,000 news results.

That means that in this case, the suspicious packages received 1,656 times more coverage in the media.

The toxic ricin letters were sent to the White House and the Pentagon. William Allen of Utah, the alleged sender, has been arrested and taken into custody.

In the suspicious pack case, the sender of the suspicious packages, Cesar Sayoc, has been taken into custody after allegedly sending packages to a number of individuals including former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden, billionaire donor George Soros, Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and California Representative Maxine Waters.

On both sides of the aisle these events have been condemned. But one of them is getting wall-to-wall coverage while another is getting measly coverage in comparison.

Jim Acosta Calls Conservative Media a “Disinformation-Industrial Complex” and “Potential Existential Threat”

Project much, Jim?

Published

CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning show “Reliable Sources” to call conservative media a “potential existential threat” that could “cause more suffering.”

Referring to the on-screen graph that shows a significant drop in engagement with Trump-related articles, Stelter asked Acosta if he thought this “quiet period” was temporary. Acosta replied as follows:

I think it is temporary. I do think what this country faces right now […] I describe it as the disinformation-industrial complex, and that is Trump and his people, conservative outlets like Fox News, and then conservative websites and organizations aligned with the president, and conservative platforms. These three pillars of this disinformation-industrial complex essentially helped put Trump in power, kept him in power, sustained his grip on the Republican Party, and it remains a threat to our democracy. It is the reason why there were hundreds of Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6. And until that poison, that toxin, is drained from the national political discourse in this country, Brian, I do think that these forces represent a potential existential threat to this country and have the potential to come back and cause more suffering in the days to come.”

Acosta does not seem to realize, however, that the popularity and influence of right-wing outlets like Big League Politics are direct consequences of “journalists” like him and networks like CNN. They’re the original traffickers in disinformation and in fanning the flames of fearmongering. Alternative conservative media would not have taken off if the mainstream media weren’t so unbearably leftist.
