This weeks DaTechGuy on DaRadio with Authors Phillip Hines and Jack Mitchell is now available here:
Next week we welcome the Granite Grok Crowd along with GOP candidate for Governor Ovid Lamontagne Saturday 10 a.m.
Also available is today’s WCRN Morning News show where I guest hosted this Memorial Day. We had Stacy McCain as a guest for the full 6 a.m. hour and spoke of not only the Swattings but of Stacy’s and his families flight from their home.
Stacy’s bit comes one hour into the show, but all day we questioned the MSM’s response or lack thereof to this story even as one of their own Erick Erickson has become a target. Stacy later on asked this question:
Mark Singer recounts how National Public Radio reporter Nina Totenberg spoke to Kimberlin two or three times every day in late October and early November 1988.
So why, 24 years later, are Nina Totenberg and the rest of the elite media ignoring what their old friend’s been up to lately?
It’s a good question and reminds me of what the Archbishop said of the MSM concerning the Church’s suit against the Federal government:
The archbishop of Washington on Sunday accused the network news programs of having “missed the boat” by largely ignoring lawsuits filed this past week by Catholic institutions challenging the Obama administration’s so-called contraception mandate.
When the story of an American journalist forced to flee his home for exercising his 1st Amendment rights, it’s a problem, when the story of a CNN regular being SWATTED isn’t even newsworthy to CNN. That’s simply amazing.
This begs the question: One would normally expect the MSM to be in the tank of course but it seems totally illogical that they would be in the tank for minor players like Kimberlin & co, particularly considering the past record involved. By any normal standard these guys would have been thrown off the bus by now.
If the left is circling the wagons for Kimberlin & co to this point one must start asking what do they know that forces their allies in the MSM to keep this story at arm’s length?
I think that’s an excellent question and the answer is likely a bigger story than what we’ve already seen
