With the arrest of the BLM security guy who assaulted the innocent guy in Portland, I checked CNN.com front page again. Amazingly, not one on the violence in Portland. Over 100+ stories on the front page and not one covering the failure of violence in democratic run cities. There was 20+ stories that were either critical of Trump or glowing coverage of the DNC and Biden. That is truly pathetic. CNN is not a news organization... they are a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party.
Hey look, we landed on the moon! Just kidding Cataholic... I just joke about it because they are a joke. I posted on here about this awhile back, but the day before George Floyd was killed, 49 of the top 50 stories were ALL on Covid, anti Trump stuff. The day after, 49 of the top 50 stories were ALL about Floyd, police brutality, BLM, and anti Trump stuff. There was ONE story with an update on COVID, way down the list. I am not making those numbers up, that is literally what was there.
It truly is incredible that main stream media outlets are so one sided on Trump. It is hard to be upset with people who have TDS, because the only coverage they see is from the liberal left media. If social media or certain channels (like Fox News) did not exist today, this years Republican Party might have no chance of winning with the one sided coverage.
Protesters/rioters/mass killers have one thing in common. They want media attention. The best thing the media can do is ignore them. As long as they get attention, they’ll keep going. If you think CNN is ignoring them for political reasons, then you must think Fox is covering them for the same reason.

I haven’t heard too many people come up with reasonable proposals to bring it to an end. You guys are letting it devolve into a media coverage debate. People need to keep their eye on the ball.

Reminds me of when people thought solving the drug addiction crisis was solved solely by busting users.

Did you ever think that maybe Fox is just reporting the NEWS! Why would you believe that rioting in the streets is not considered news and just a normal everyday event that will go away if we ignore it?

As for CNN, did they cover the protestors early on when it met the left’s agenda? YES! After it devolves into just anarchy, it is no longer news worthy??? After an person trying to assist someone else is brutally attacked by a BLM “security” person, that is not news worthy?

There is a media coverage debate because it exists. The negative coverage is unprecedented and will have a real impact on voters.

So I haven't followed this as closely as many on here but I'm so curious; what is the end game? Every day I read about and see photos and video of just terrible things happening. How long is it allowed?

Like everything, I'm sure it is very political. I'm begging to try and disregard that at this time. We can see with our own eyes major destruction and violence. How long is this allowed to go on, and if not the police, who is going to eventually stop it? I'm genuinely curious.

Or is it one of those things where it just goes on as long as the people want it to and we hope they eventually lose interest or find a new cause? It just seems to me a country as powerful as the United States would not let this type of stuff go on too long before some action is taken.

What a mess

Update - CNN.com has 8 stories today on their front page regarding police related shootings in Kenosha and Houston. This is a major contrast from the recent lack of coverage of violence in Portland. The major difference is that this meets the liberal left agenda while Portland is now just considered violence and does not meet that narrative.

By the way, Fox News has at least 7 stories on just Kenosha today. They report the news.

The rioting will stop when it becomes politically expedient for it to stop.

You are losing your mind dude! A self-proclaimed "militia" member shot 3 people killing 2 of them! How is that NOT FRONT PAGE NEWS?!?! I get it; you are a far right winger. You probably think militia in our streets pretending to be cops/military is a good idea. Well it isn't, and now this 17 year old kid is going to jail for a long time because of fake news outlets like Infowars who celebrate these morons. Comparing today’s headlines of Portland to Kenosha is asinine, and you know it.

Please read the thread as my points above were in regard to what CNN and mainstream media will not report unless aligned with the liberal left agenda. How they have treated Portland is a great example. Maybe you can recall that Portland received a lot of press coverage when it was in regard to George Floyd. Now that it is just pure anarchy, CNN won’t cover it because it hurts the liberal agenda. Same will happen with Kenosha. If the riots continue, it will start to negatively impact the liberal agenda, it won’t get any more coverage by CNN.

By the way, you have read plenty of my posts and should know full well that I have been against violence the whole time. I have been against racism (especially important since I am a minority). I am not a far right wing nut. I align with the Republican party and am worried about the liberal agenda. I happen to disagree with your party and quite frankly, the daily posts you put up that attack all Republicans are pretty sad. There is a treasure trove of Democratic missteps that I can gladly start posting for your reading pleasure if you like.

That Portland isn't an all-out warzone like many news reports make it out to look like. The protests are mostly confined to a couple blocks in a specific part of Portland. You wouldn't even know they are going on if you didn't know better, or if you picked out a random person in town and talked to them.

When you protest/riot in the streets for days on end and it mostly boils down to spray painting, chanting, breaking windows it loses its newsworthiness. Sorry, that's not a right or left-wing thing, or a CNN or Fox thing. It's just the way it is. Making this about news coverage is about as mediocre as it gets in terms of trying to making a mountain out of a mole hill. If something significant happens, then it should be covered. I don't need a blow-by-blow report on how someone threw an egg at a statue for the tenth straight day.

Anyway, you can respond again and I'll let it go.

Last report I heard had him possibly employed a car lot that was being vandalized. He shot someone at the lot and then a group began to chase him. He defended himself and gave us one less rioter. I know you would probably just put up your hand and tell them you agree with their plight. At which point you would be a statistic.

If you think CNN is ignoring them for political reasons, then you must think Fox is covering them for the same reason.

I haven’t heard too many people come up with reasonable proposals to bring it to an end. You guys are letting it devolve into a media coverage debate. People need to keep their eye on the ball.

Reminds me of when people thought solving the drug addiction crisis was solved solely by busting users.
Did you ever think that maybe Fox is just reporting the NEWS! Why would you believe that rioting in the streets is not considered news and just a normal everyday event that will go away if we ignore it?

As for CNN, did they cover the protestors early on when it met the left’s agenda? YES! After it devolves into just anarchy, it is no longer news worthy??? After an person trying to assist someone else is brutally attacked by a BLM “security” person, that is not news worthy?

There is a media coverage debate because it exists. The negative coverage is unprecedented and will have a real impact on voters.

When you protest/riot in the streets for days on end and it mostly boils down to spray painting, chanting, breaking windows it loses its newsworthiness. Sorry, that's not a right or left-wing thing, or a CNN or Fox thing. It's just the way it is. Making this about news coverage is about as mediocre as it gets in terms of trying to making a mountain out of a mole hill. If something significant happens, then it should be covered. I don't need a blow-by-blow report on how someone threw an egg at a statue for the tenth straight day.

Anyway, you can respond again and I'll let it go.
Come on Tom. You didn’t think the guy getting attacked by BLM security for helping an innocent bystander was newsworthy? They almost killed him. Do you think if a white security guy smacked a protester, would it have made CNN then? And the articles above about the uneven coverage doesn’t concern you?

With the arrest of the BLM security guy who assaulted the innocent guy in Portland, I checked CNN.com front page again. Amazingly, not one on the violence in Portland. Over 100+ stories on the front page and not one covering the failure of violence in democratic run cities. There was 20+ stories that were either critical of Trump or glowing coverage of the DNC and Biden. That is truly pathetic. CNN is not a news organization... they are a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party.
Hey look, we landed on the moon! Just kidding Cataholic... I just joke about it because they are a joke. I posted on here about this awhile back, but the day before George Floyd was killed, 49 of the top 50 stories were ALL on Covid, anti Trump stuff. The day after, 49 of the top 50 stories were ALL about Floyd, police brutality, BLM, and anti Trump stuff. There was ONE story with an update on COVID, way down the list. I am not making those numbers up, that is literally what was there.
It truly is incredible that main stream media outlets are so one sided on Trump. It is hard to be upset with people who have TDS, because the only coverage they see is from the liberal left media. If social media or certain channels (like Fox News) did not exist today, this years Republican Party might have no chance of winning with the one sided coverage.

Ya... come on, we aren't talking about the media not covering people spray painting and throwing eggs. We're talking about the multiple videos showing VIOLENCE and CHAOS. How is that not newsworthy? Oh ya, it is. CNN just chooses to not show that because it's very clear it works against the Left agenda.

Wasn’t too long ago that I remember the wall to wall coverage of the Ferguson riots and the whole “hands up, don’t shoot” false narrative shoved down our throats by the media.

I propose that an intrepid local Montana journalist travel to, say downtown Portland, for a week and be our eyes, ears, and boots on the ground. Only caveat is that said journalist daily shift starts at sundown. Any suggestions for the assignment?
