As readers of this blog certainly know, a young man on the campus of UC – Berkeley in California (Hayden Williams is his name) was verbally, then physically assaulted for daring to sit at a table with Turning Point USA literature for people to read or not read as they so chose.
In case you missed it, here are two videos of this verbal/physical assault – and be warned about both the violence and the profanity (NOTE: the original video I put up was disallowed by youtube.com):
That clear enough for you?
Given the gravity of this incident, and the fact that it took place on a college campus (you know, the place where all views are supposed to be respected), I thought it might be interesting to see how mainstream media covered it. So:
-I googled “Berkeley Turning Point USA” and looked at the first three pages. Not one major venue.
-Then I went to the New York Times home page. Not mentioned at all.
-Then I went to the Washington Post home page. Not there either.
-Then I went to nbcnews.com. Nope, not a word.
-Ditto for cbsnews.com.
-Ditto for abcnews.com.
In other words, this violent attack on a young man – in full view and captured on video so there’s no doubt about what happened, who did it and why – is being fully suppressed by these so-called major news sources.
Does anyone believe for a minute that a similarly violent attack on a college student for daring to offer students left wing political literature – in support of, say, the “New Green Deal” or illegal immigration – also in full view and captured on video, would go unreported?
This, sadly, is what has become of our one-sided, thoroughly compromised mainstream media. And, as I have said many times here, it is why fewer and fewer people trust them.
Why should they?
