RE: An example of media hype

Yes, its a discussion. Not an affirmation of the judges personal beliefs. Its getting out of hand a bit. The right does it also so I'm not just viewing one side. What does the future hold?






You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.

ABC said 4 secret service people dead......

1 person died and it wasn't a secret service agent.

The reporting is a little misleading at the start of the article. It's pretty poor journalism, I agree. But, I think Reid's actual comments (which were reported accurately in the article) are where the real "hype" lies.

Scalia was referencing points cited in unidentified briefs when he talked about some African Americans not being able to keep up in top notch colleges and how most black doctors and scientists graduate from lower level colleges. He was not voicing his own thoughts, as Reid would have one believe.

But, Scalia did, in fact, ponder whether the University of Texas should have fewer black students. He owns that one. I got his point though. He was putting forth that perhaps admitting black students, in part based on race, is a problem which is unfair to those black students and the school if some of those black students can't keep up.

I have no way of knowing if Justice Scalia is a racist. But, personally, I think those who are labeling him a racist based only on what he said during this case review are off-base. The case being reviewed deals with pros and cons associated with academic affirmative action, after all.
It's also unfair to any other race of student who was passed over in order to admit a black student who in the end couldn't keep up.

Terribly sloppy news coverage, for sure, by both ABC and Yahoo News.

The ABC correspondent at the start of the linked video reports 4 agents dead. The ABC reporter on the scene at the end of the video clip reports that 3 of the agents have been released and one is still in the hospital.

I just read where Alex Trebec "savagely" attacked a contestant for her hobby, she did "nerdy rap" and explained what she did. Wanna know what he said? "Sounds like losers"


So savage hah geez,






media labels things that make no sense.

RE: An example of media hype

So I'm reading about this Meghan Markle thing and her engagement to a prince Harry and all I see is the royals will never let a mixed race person marry him. The media is screaming they won't get married before anyone from the royal family comments on it. So in my eyes the media is starting a controversy before it even starts.

I consider the papers spreading this crap to be greedy assholes. Creating controversy in order to get more sales. It happens quite a bit.

Anything concerning the royals is going to sell in the UK. There are still tons of conspiracy theories published weekly over there about Dianna.

The dating and engagement story, her background, how Dianna would have loved her, blah blah blah......their romance has been all over the media for months.

But, I haven't seen reporters asserting that the royals wouldn't let them marry due to her being mixed race.

Can you provide a link? I'd like to check out that idiocy.

hah

That is a really dumb article. Re-quoting 'experts' from a rag speaking for people about things they couldn't possibly know.

Newsweek has really gone downhill.

Harry's fiancee is half black and proud of her family. Like she's really gonna hide that fact when it's already a matter of public record all over the place.

I know, same with Time but its been tossed out there for the unwashed masses and part of the discussion on media hype.

.


Frickin Media Terrorists through out (ask & or state) to the public, outrageous hypothetical (even scandalous) "food for thought" questions or statements of whatever comes to their minds. Just to try to out do and get a jump their media competitors. It's getting continually worse as time goes by. They want to "one up" each other!

It's no longer Journalism!
