Joe Biden didn’t just tell a Detroit autoworker he was full of Shiite, the other day. He wagged his finger at him and threatened to slap him in the face. In the name of truth and unbiased reporting, NBC (not unexpectedly) edited that part out.
I suppose we should be surprised that the media covered the story at all. I’m sure they’d have been happy to ignore it. But people using Twitter, Facebook, and the new media, post live news in real-time that gets picked up and shared everywhere. If the Institutional Press does not provide the “state-sponsored,” sanitized version, of events the real thing is the only “thing” out there.
They have to perform their public service. Provide the official left-wing version, so the Mob has an approved narrative to flood the zone. Rule search, as I like to say. Such that, people looking for it can only find the approved version. Google is very helpful as the need arises.
Which leaves the new media with a second task. Reporting the truth and then report on the reporting by the partisan institutional media. Multi-billion-dollar corporate monsters walking hand-in-hand with the ruling class. Mission: control the message.
This brings us News Busters whose mission is to expose the antics of the propaganda mills.
In a viral moment from an auto plant in Detroit Tuesday, a raging Joe Biden lashed out and threatened to assault (slap) an autoworker who confronted him about his support for curtailing Second Amendment rights. The threat was omitted by all the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and Univision, with CNNEE and Telemundo ignoring the incident altogether. But what NBC Nightly News did was particularly deceptive in that they completely cut around Biden’s threat of physical violence.
In the NBC coverage of the “tense confrontation,” correspondent Gabe Gutierrez actually noted that Biden did want to ban so-called “assault weapons” before boasting that the former Vice President “pulled no punches.” He then played the manipulated video:
Well, he did only threaten to assault the union employee. He didn’t actually do it. Not that you’d know from this report.
Does that make Joe Biden’s hand an “assault weapon?” Should we be waving a Red Flag? Is there a finger “magazine” limit on that thing?
