Who Are The Powerful?

SO…

I’m tracking the so-called major media, looking for the major story about the Million Vet March…

{crickets}

To be fair, CNN, Fox, and NPR did cover the story, mentioning (mumble-mumble) thousand veterans showed up as promised, brought down the barricades, and occupied the memorials.  Apparently, some politicians spoke, and The President barricaded The White House against rioters.  (Actually, some protesters moved some barricades to in front of the Executive mansion!)

At least it was the lead on Drudge for a while…

No rioters were spotted.

There was no reported violence, or damaging of the historic sites, save the removal of the barricades.  One protester was arrested for having handguns in his backpack in D.C.

And no report as to accurate numbers of attendees, either.  It’s as though the MSM had an editorial agenda (?)

I was reminded of a Summer protest in front of the Arizona State Capitol.  I think it was the weekend after Independence Day, so you know it was hot.  The peaceful protesters were speaking out against yet another attempted action by the State and Federal governments, regarding guns and gun control.  This was during the time of the Clinton so-called Assault Weapons Ban.  Something like 250+ protesters were there, with appropriate signs and speakers.  Seems to me Sheriff Mack was there.  We drank a lot of bottled water.

And media vans drove around us, but, none stopped or filmed.  We didn’t fit the agenda.

For comparison, earlier that year, six (6) people met a couple State legislators on the steps of the capitol to discuss something to do with abortion.  THIS made state and national news.

Who are the most powerful persons in any newsroom?  The assignment desk and the editors.

It’s all about the agenda.

  1. Their power is diminishing as their advertising revenues plummet. Thank you, Internet!

    The very first picture shows the determination we vets have. The man has no legs, and yet he is out there doing his part. I have no idea what branch of the service he was in, and it doesn’t matter. Semper Fi. Truly one of the brave.

  4. What seems to have been lost in the kerfuffle of the reporting on the march is that it was meant to be apolitical, as per the comment on their website:

    The political agenda put forth by a local organizer in Washington DC was not in alignment with our message. We feel disheartened that some would seek to hijack the narrative for political gain. The core principle is about all Americans honoring Veterans in a peaceful and apolitical manner. Feel free to check out the 60+ rallies of the Million Vet March across the nation at our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Million-Vet-March-on-the-Memorials/539097822833735.

  5. Agenda? I’m shocked, SHOCKED I tell you!
    What possible agenda could the mindless media minions of Glorious Leader Sparklefarts have?

    OK, other than destroying self-determination and every liberty we’ve fought and died for over the last 230+ years.

  6. OK, I may have to replace “Momjeans” with “Glorious Leader Sparklefarts” if its OK with KM.

    Same media coverage of the MD protest of the gun laws in Annapolis. Or lack thereof.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
