Thao, a ten year veteran of the force, summarizes his experiences at the scene of Floyd’s arrest in the police interview.

I’m under the belief that you can always do something differently on every single call… I guess I would be more observant toward Floyd,” said Thao, summarizing his experience at the scene of Floyd’s death. He states that he was more concerned about the presence of a growing crowd as Officer Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s death for a time period of around nine minutes.

Thao argues that he didn’t have the chance to see that what Chauvin was doing was potentially dangerous or lethal on account of the crowd presence.

Bombshell medical documents from the Hennepin County coroner have revealed that Dr. Andrew Baker would conclude that George Floyd died of a drug overdose, if not for the circumstances of his arrest.

Thao is currently out on bond from the jail system while awaiting trial. From the looks of it, he has a decent chance of getting off on the charges.

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

Project much, Jim?

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.
