Steve Crowder asks, “Why would the media leave these out? It’s almost like they’re… fake… or something.” He refers to mainstream media’s ongoing efforts to overlook inner city mass shootings.
He notes that 80 people were shot in the past week in inner city shootings. Chicago had 20 people shot in one week, and 40 people the previous week. Yet you’ll barely hear about these events outside of Chicago. Why not?
The media appears to be downplaying inner city violence out of some kind of fear or cover up of largely African American violence. No outlet wants to be “that place” to highlight the amount of black on black crime occurring or the stereotype of a black male shooting multiple victims.
Even if the move doesn’t play to the left’s narrative, it’s unfortunately still often true. In fact, more people were shot in Chicago last weekend than in both the Atlanta and Boulder shootings last week. But unless you are a local watching Chicago news, you probably didn’t hear about it.
As Crowder notes, the media treats these shooting almost like fake news. But if the shootings involved a white supremacist, it would be wall-to-wall coverage. There’s something not right when the mainstream media chooses story based on what fits its narrative rather than what is really happening in the country. Time to turn off mainstream news and take a look at Crowder’s latest commentary for more on this important event.
