Despicable. Hard not to notice that this video is very similar to many from the wave of attacks on Jews in NY in 2019. The city has a serious problem with bigoted attacks that just isn’t being addressed.
Here is an example from back then, notice how similar the attacks are...

And here was my thread from when that wave began noting that the attacks were being ignored because they didn't fit a narrative the press was comfortable with:

Now you see the same thing happening in NY with Asian Americans as the target.
Remember that the wave of attacks on elderly Jews culminated with a mass stabbing attack in Monsey NY and a mass shooting in Jersey City in late 2019. People need to speak out and action needs to be taken now before the violence against Asian Americans escalates to that level.

The GA election law is so revealing of the way the press works these days. Most publication had reporters that didn’t bother to read the law and just wrote it up based on what activists told them was in it, which matched Dem spin & was a complete distortion of reality.
There were some exceptions that wrote good explainers (ex: Business Insider), but the overall narrative was completely created by activists and almost impossible to challenge now. The reliance on activists, and mostly from 1 side, to frame these stories has become a real issue.
It’s a simple truth that the GA law expanded voter access compared to any pre-pandemic election. That’s hard to dispute with actual facts. But no one who read the coverage would possibly come away with that conclusion.

Just embarrassing. Yahoo News is letting one of their most incompetent reporters promote insane conspiracies about Florida’s numbers and of course the blue-checks on the left that have been looking to justify this conspiracy are eager to promote.
The whole article is reliant on someone not understanding the difference between Covid-19 deaths and excess deaths. Excess deaths will exceed Covid deaths in a lot of states because there were other factors last year (spikes in homicides, suicides, less preventative care etc)
Salome people just can’t accept that they were wrong about Florida’s approach to Covid because they spent a year yelling about how it would be a disaster in 2 weeks so now they have to invent things to justify a dumb conspiracy from a state that is very transparent w their data.

Went into this Clubhouse. Truly one of the most bigoted discussions I have ever heard. A bunch of people basically dismissing and justifying any discrimination that isn’t targeted directly at their community.
One of the few intelligent speakers on the stage points out that Asian-Americans have also face plenty of discrimination in history including the Chinese Exclusion Act and Japanese-American internment. Basically gets dismissed and told it’s irrelevant.
The most telling part was one of the girls justifying her ridiculous statements by saying her professor has told her that’s what’s right. It’s rather clear that this neoracism is being enshrined on college campuses and we are worse off because of it.

For the 100th time, Alex Berenson is anti-vaxxer idiot that consistently lies to his followers because he assumes they will never check his claims.
Berenson: Cases are starting to rise with vaccinations, just like in Israel.

Reality: Cases have crashed overall in Israel and the US. And far more so among the elderly, which are the population that have been vaccinated. Small inc are among unvaccinated groups due to variants.
Israel went from almost 10K new cases per day in late January to 1-2K per day over the last week. From~70 deaths per day to less than 10 in the same period. You have to be a complete idiot or intentionally dishonest to not recognize what vaccines have done.

Rupar misled tens of thousands of people into thinking this was the officer giving his own view of the suspect’s motive. That narrative got picked up by several major outlets. And his defense is that the officer wasn’t directly quoting, just paraphrasing.
And then journalists that fell for that false narrative decided to go further by stalking through the social media of this private officer and smearing him as a racist in several major outlets because he once posted a picture of what he thought was a funny shirt re Covid/China.
I’m rarely surprised anymore, but one of the more despicable media pile-ons I’ve seen recently. Especially because it was targeted at a private figure that happened to be the spokesperson for the Sheriffs Department on the case.

This is the type of stuff that really makes me dislike the press.

First, the promote a false viral claim from Rupar about what he said today.
Then, they try to direct a mob at this cop over a t-shirt he once wore in a photo.
The reporters and editors behind this piece could never withstand this type of scrutiny, but they abuse their platform to go after and try to destroy this random police spokesman.

It’s completely irresponsible and an abuse of their platform.
And it’s worth noting that the NY Post got this nonsense from Buzzfeed, which was even worse in labeling it a “racist” shirt.
