Media bias: "Language department" when it defines the riots

Posted on 08/25/2020 3:42:54 PM PDT by Freeleesy

Media bias: "Language department " Sorry to watch also the drive-by-media when it defines the riots. Portland or Kenosha.

* Peaceful protest becomes "emotional"

* "Angrey".

* "Clashes".

* "mostly peaceful" "only some" are violent.

What is your favorite?

“Angry” is probably most outrageous...of course most violent acts ever are “angry” acts.

I think the one that got me was when the reportress was claiming CHOPZ had a “block party atmosphere”, even as an agitator contradicted her right into her microphone.

“Activists”

If they were right-wingers you can be sure the mass media would be calling them a lot of names but not “activists”.

“The morning of Dec 7th, 1941 was ‘mostly peaceful’, until the Japanese showed-up.”

“President Kennedy’s trip to Dallas was ‘mostly peaceful’, until a Leftist-Communist opened a 4th floor window.”

Huge increases in crime in Democrat cities is a mere "uptick".

Any increase in COVID cases or fatalities is a SURGE or a SPIKE.

“Black” instead of “black”.

“white” is always “white” unless it’s the first word in a sentence.

Sadly, I see many F.R. members, sheepishly following along.

This is Noam Chomsky whole raison d’être, using language to forward a radical agenda.

Any time they say “mostly peaceful”, what that actually means is that they were somewhat violent.

Can I fight a speeding ticket by saying I “mostly drive below the speed limit”?
Scott Peterson was a “mostly” law abiding citizen until he murdered his wife.
O.J. Simpson was “mostly” peaceful except the night he stabbed his ex-wife and her boyfriend.

Noam is as extremist as they come. And an inciter too.
