As I monitor world news outlets I noticed something interesting. News of a Louisiana movie theatre shooting came across the wires. Two dead plus the gunman, several injured. This is a very sad event, and my heart goes out to the parents and family members of the casualties.
However, something else caught my eye. This story instantaneously jumped to the top of 85% of the news sites that I monitor.
The above was a small sampling of the articles that came across almost immediately. Then, I noticed some of the International news organizations picking it up…
Then, concurrent to the BBC’s article about the shooting in Louisiana, they run an interview with President Obama that has him almost with a crocodile tear in his eye, saying how he “admits” that gun control has been his toughest thing to get passed through legislation. By admitting something that is obvious, does that make his handlers think that he appears to be more honest? Or that Americans should feel sorry for him because he has failed to remove THEE most important right that our lovely Constitution grants us.
It is very upsetting to the roughly 120,000 people of Lafayette that the 2 people died and several were injured (I’m not counting the shooter in the bodycount, who also died). But, honestly, is this story really international news? Why is this story being thrust to the top of the headline chart, worldwide? What merit would possibly put this ahead of other important US and International recent headlines such as…
There are hundreds of people dying from wars across the world daily and yet, the 2 dead folks plus the injured in Louisiana is garnering the top spot. It’s funny how quickly something becomes top news when other certain events are at the top of the headlines. Almost as if, a sad day for these people in Louisiana is used to make people forget about other important issues while pushing gun control propaganda. Mainstream media only tells us the stories that they WANT us to know, and they deliver it to us in the context of their choosing. Boycott the bull, and start researching for yourself.
Using a minor, local tragedy to propagandize the entire public is a larger tragedy.
