By Jeff Davidson,The events of the past month confirm what many on the right have long known. The American mainstream media is sinister and deadly. This has been going on for at least a decade, and quite likely, far longer. Here We Go AgainA recent episode of the mainstream media’s utter irresponsibility is, of course, publishing ‘news’ that Israeli Defense Force rockets fired on a hospital in Gaza filled with Palestinian doctors, nurses, administrative staff, patients, and visitors. This claim was been so thoroughly disproven that those who published this utter and despicable lie ought to retire from the profession if, indeed, you can still call it a profession.Film footage of rockets being fired by Hamas into Israeli territory showed that one of the rockets went off course and struck near the hospital where the alleged massacre took place. The rocket did not hit the hospital as reported by the New York Times and on down. The rocket hit a parking lot near the hospital and many cars and other vehicles were damaged beyond compare repair. The damage to the hospital itself was minimal. Some people were hurt as a result of Hamas striking its own people.Why Wait for the Facts?Instead of waiting for the facts, which a responsible media would have done, the American mainstream media, full blast, accused Israel of this atrocity. What was their source? Hamas leaders themselves. These leaders claimed that Israel had fired on the hospital, and had killed 250, then revised that number to 500, in an attempted genocide. Any reporter worth his or her salt would have investigated further. Any responsible publication would have ensured that they had the facts before going forward. But no, that’s too much to ask of the American mainstream media.Instead they published this blatant lie and broadcast it around the world. They inflamed the Middle East in ways that actual war doesn’t usually do. In one Arabic country after another, in the principal cities, there were demonstrations — not just thousands, tens of thousands marching and chanting, against Israel for being monsters, genocidal, and wishing to eradicate the Palestinians by any means possible.Not Nearly the First TimeIf only this were the first time that the American mainstream media acted in sinister and deadly ways. Unfortunately, this is become de rigueur with them. If you recall more than a decade ago George Zimmerman, who is an Hispanic individual, was besieged in an apartment courtyard by Trayvon Martin, who was bashing Zimmerman’s head into the sidewalk as Zimmerman was finally was able to reach for his gun and put an end to Martin’s attempted murder, by killing Martin. What did the American mainstream press report? That Zimmerman was a white man, that he stalked Trayvon Martin, and shot him in cold blood. As such, the press fanned the flames of racial hatred in America, which ends up costing some people their lives at other times and other placesTo this day there are many on the Left who still believe this narrative, even though the facts of the case thoroughly document and thoroughly prove that it was, indeed, Trayvon Martin who was the aggressor and it was Zimmerman who was fighting for his life. A Career Criminal at 18Not long afterwards, Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri, allegedly said “hands up, don’t shoot,” except that he never did. He tried to wrestle the gun away from a police officer, while that officer was still seated in his own squad car. The press ran with the story that the police officer fired on Michael Brown who was completely innocent. Not ironically, video footage from a convenience store surfaced that showed just 10 minutes before, Brown had choked a clerk, much smaller in size than himself, when stealing from the store. Brown was a hardened criminal in the body of a youth who pranced around town as if he owned it. The press never reported that. As with Trayvon Martin and so many others, when they published a picture of Brown they showed him in a high school graduation cap and gown. Hey, we all looked pretty good in high school and we all looked innocent in our 10 and 12-year-old pictures. Why the press continues to use these angelic poses as opposed to how these perpetrators actually looked in the present speaks to their unending attempt at sinister reporting. To emphasize, when the press fans the flames of racism and racial hatred, people die. People die in riots, people die in street skirmishes, fires, and random shootings, and via homemade bombs.With Blood on Their Hands, KnowinglyThe current sinister and deadly lie about Hamas rockets, that the American mainstream media has presented to the world, is going to kill thousands of people in the coming weeks, months, and years.The truth will not emerge in those countries and most of those people who are in the streets protesting against Israel and against Jews and against America will not know that the story was misreported.         Many street demonstrators live in relatively closed societies where they do not get the full story if indeed they get any accurate news. The lie spreads and spreads and becomes part of the prevailing lore that propels countries and peoples to hate Israel and to hate America.No RetractionThe American mainstream press has since found out that what they reported was completely inaccurate. The retractions, if any, will appear on page 16 in the fourth column way down on the page. There is no remorse on the part of Leftist newspaper publishers. They could not care less that they framed and condemned and misrepresented Israel. They are happy to do so, and giving the chance will do so again and again. They are sinister and they are deadly and there’s no other way to put it.
