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.

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.
