The five men arrested for planning to blow up a bridge in Ohio turn out to all be active Occupy Wall Street activists.


Readers!

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

 

Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


 

Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

Why am I not surprised? The five men arrested for planning to blow up a bridge in Ohio turn out to all be active Occupy Wall Street activists.

As despicable as this act of violence might have been, it is just as despicable for major news organizations to fail to mention the important fact that they are Occupiers.

    Not just active with OWS but at least one of them has a leadership role with OWS. Something to do with PR, iirc, which make the cries of them not representing OWS kind of funny.

    Talking about selective media reporting, this is a transcript of another version of the G. Zimmerman case ( I assume no relation) where another reporter was fired, symbolically Im sure.

    This is an example of pure fact creation forget about omission.

    The manipulation appears in the version marked “doctored version” after the words “drugs or something” in that sentence.

    In a story for the “Today” show on March 20, Luciano used part of the George Zimmerman 911 call in which an entire phrase was taken from a later part of the conversation:

    The doctored version:

    Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good or on drugs or something. He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male.
    Dispatcher: Are you following him?
    Zimmerman: Yeah.
    Dispatcher: Okay, we don’t need you to do that.

    But here’s how the call really went:

    Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
    Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he white, black, or Hispanic?
    Zimmerman: He looks black.

    It sure helps if you have crooked press and/or politicians in your pocket.
