Dear "professional" journalists...

..."NEWS WORDS MATTER TOO"...boohoo

PARIS (Reuters) - Armed protesters fired at police, LIGHTLY WOUNDING FIVE, during overnight confrontations in an area north of Paris over the death of a young man in police custody, local officials said on Wednesday.
See, Skippy... this is exactly what I'm talking about.

The moment you pull out a gun and shoot at police, you are no longer a "protestor"... you're a homicidal maniac.

And please, please, please Mr Reuters... explain to me the difference between shooting and "lightly wounding." Do police officers ever "lightly wound" criminals?

With apologies to the Dixie Chicks, just... "'Shut up and Drive', er... do the fucking math."

...I'm talking to you too.

SEATTLE -- A 35-year-old homeless black man, Chikwanha Eastling Nyashanu is being held on $500,000 bail after he pointed a gun at a white man's face and demanded he apologize for all the things white people did to black people, according to charges filed with King County Superior Court.
Homeless but strapped. Gotta have priorities, I guess.

The founding fathers would never have imagined instant worldwide communications and the 24 hour news cycle. Maybe it's time for some common sense control on the media.

"scott walde says... some common sense control on the media"

you mean like "politifact" shitting all over the mother of a
dead american veteran?

"In the “fact-checking” article, Politico also offers the
excuse that Clinton may have been telling Smith
what she believed to be the truth."

The media are responsible for the damage this revisionist narrative is causing. It started with permitting the marxist revision of history in the white Privilege narrative we saw cucks appologising for their "whiteness" and allowing unnecessary "Blackness" to cloud every political issue - this has expanded to the white guilt cult and acceptability of Black racism - now we have a black cop hunter cult and a bunch of free lance losers attacking white people.

Self-hatred is not a virtue; it’s a sickness. The only thing White people have to apologise for is for inventing and propagating Marxism. The idea of equality (except before the law) is just one more infantile socialist-revisionist delusion indulged by the taxpayers and long suffering majority.

When will we have had enough?

While my sarcastic comment was really only a perhaps-too-vague swipe at a common anti-gun argument, I'll take the bait.

We already have laws addressing libel and slander. I would love to see these laws used to hold media to account when they tell lies. Sadly, the recent events surrounding Clinton appear to suggest that certain people (and, probably, the media) are immune to the rule of law.

I don't disagree with you at all. Words absolutely matter. I don't know if you were thinking it, but I would hate to see more laws that end up restricting the ability of anyone to report truth. The "freedom of speech / freedom of the press" that allows Politfact to spew their BS is the same freedom that permits Breitbart to publish the counter-article.

I loved the bit with The Daily Show. I've personally witnessed how that show has raised a generation of people who are unable to think critically.

I'm thinking that some of this sentence's intent might be scrambled? : "...The moment you pull out a gun and shoot at police, you are no longer a "protestor"... you're a homicidal maniac...."

Perhaps: "...the moment you pull out a gun and shoot at police, you are no longer a homicidal maniac, you are a "protestor?"

You certainly have to be a special kind of moron to call someone shooting at police a protestor

What the media has accomplished in recent years is showing their readers and listeners that they are completely dishonest and untrustworthy. They, like most of the left are habitual liars and delusional twats.

The Jon Stewart generation. The free shit army generation. Lots of labels for them.

the irony here is that all the people who go out of their way to rationalise the excesses of islamic terrorism will be the first people who get lined up against the wall at the dawn of the new caliphate.
