Will the MSM go ‘full embargo’ on Oklahoma beheading details?


You beclown yourself when beheading a woman gets less outrage than the Colorado baker who didn't want to make a cake for a same sex wedding.

The horrific beheading that took place at a plant in Oklahoma is being discussed at length on social media, but how will the mainstream media approach all the details of this story, if at all?

Here’s the take from Ace of Spades:

I am curious to see how intensely the media embargoes this story, which presents Narratives they hate.

I'm kind of rooting for them to do the full embargo– because they would be so massively discredited it would destroy them.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 26, 2014

But I imagine they know that, so they'll give it very, very light play. Just so they can say "We mentioned that."

The media hates the "dark news," the "undernews," as @kausmickey calls it, that flies around the blogosphere, without their permission.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 26, 2014

But this news only flies around the blogosphere because the media embargoes it.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 26, 2014

They are then creating "dark news" themselves, by their refusal to cover obviously newsworthy stories (Gosnell, for example).

Or refusing to report that serial groper Bob Filner was not just the mayor of SD, but a 20-year Congressman and ally of Nancy Pelosi.

They impose an embargo on the truth, and then they scratch their heads at why people don't believe them or seek out alternate channels.

Pretty simple, really: Because we know you're fucking lying to us.

btw I reject the media's self-flattery that they just wish to avoid a Panic.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 26, 2014

The media is willing to go full Carnival Barker for Panic when it serves the Narrative:

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 26, 2014

J. Stack, who identified himself as a communist in his suicide note, was called an "anti-government protester" (wink) and given Panic play.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 26, 2014

Sarah Palin was all but named a co-conspirator in the Gabby Giffords shooting. When it turned out the killer hadn't even read her…

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 26, 2014

…the media adroitly changed its claim from Palin directly influencing Laughner to a "general climate of uncivil speech" spurring him.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 26, 2014

That said, no, I don't personally want the media to do its Carnival Barker Panic-Play antics in this case, either.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 26, 2014

Let me propose that people will speculate and become more panicked when they know they are not being told the truth.

Will the mainstream media shine a powerful light on all the facts of the horrible murder in Oklahoma? Confidence is low:

@jodeenicks @AceofSpadesHQ Local TV (Los Angeles) is oohing and ahhing over the Apple iPhone software update.

— Arthur Kimes (@ComradeArthur) September 26, 2014

@AceofSpadesHQ I expect they'll scrutinize the Bigoted Employer That Unjustly Fired A Muslim.

— Thew (@senorlamella) September 26, 2014

@aceofspadeshq I think the narrative wheel was spun and landed on "disgruntled".

— Bohemio (@El__Bohemio) September 26, 2014

@AceofSpadesHQ this story goes against every aspect of their race baiting.

— Jodee (@jodeenicks) September 26, 2014

@jodeenicks @AceofSpadesHQ And it happened *yesterday*.

— Dave Smith (@Drake_Stones) September 26, 2014

Nothing on @msnbc or @nytimes right now. @washingtonpost still calling it a stabbing. @AceofSpadesHQ

Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving.

@jimgeraghty The name Alton Nolen will receive one-thousandth the coverage of the name Mike Brown. Mark it down.
