Miriam Carey Shatters Media Dreams

It could have been such a great day for the MSM.

They had dreams, they had plans. They had beaten the “Evil GOP” meme dur­ing the shut­down to death, they had spent every wak­ing moment declar­ing that the GOP was chok­ing the poor and hurt­ing the pub­lic, hold­ing the coun­try hostage.

They talked about the strength of Barack Obama who declared the Tea Party “Extrem­ists” & “Terrorists”.

And then it hap­pened. A car try­ing to crash through the bar­ri­ers at the White House. They had story they were dream­ing of, reports of shots and then the car speed­ing toward Cap­i­tal Hill.

The seg­ments and the sto­ries were already being writ­ten in their minds, their imag­i­na­tions went wild

Tea Party anar­chist tar­get­ing Obama

The extreme tea party finally cracks

Obama Hatred leads to DC tragedy

Tea Party mem­ber holds gov­ern­ment hostage…literally!

Early reports had the per­son with a gun & shots fired. The minds of the left con­tin­ues to turn:

More Gun violence

Shooter was NRA member

Gun bought at Gun Show

When word got out Cap­i­tal police were injured it Andrew Sul­li­van must have already been com­pos­ing his headline:

Send the med­ical bill to Ted Cruz

With the tim­ing of the attack 2:15 EST and a car being used the media dreamed of Rush Lim­baugh or Mark Levin on the radio:

Attempted assas­sin was Rush Lim­baugh, Ted Cruz fan

The pos­si­bil­i­ties were end­less! and then came the facts:

The dri­ver wasn’t a Tea Party member

Wasn’t a per­son involved in politics,

Wasn’t armed

Wasn’t a man

Wasn’t even white!

The dri­ver was a black woman with men­tal health issues and a young child vio­lat­ing every stereo­type the media held dear, given she lived in Ct. they couldn’t even blame her post­par­tum depres­sion on lack of access to abortion.

And a two-​week story about the vio­lence of the tea party with heavy face time dom­i­nat­ing the land­scape faded toward the bot­tom of Meme­o­ran­dum and the hour-​long seg­ments with just a lit­tle news tossed on it became a small open­ing before going back to hit­ting the GOP on the gov­ern­ment shutdown.

It’s sad to see a dream fade so quickly

It could have been such a great day for the MSM.

They had dreams, they had plans. They had beaten the “Evil GOP” meme during the shutdown to death, they had spent every waking moment declaring that the GOP was choking the poor and hurting the public, holding the country hostage.

They talked about the strength of Barack Obama who declared the Tea Party “Extremists” & “Terrorists”.

And then it happened. A car trying to crash through the barriers at the White House. They had story they were dreaming of, reports of shots and then the car speeding toward Capital Hill.

The segments and the stories were already being written in their minds, their imaginations went wild

Tea Party anarchist targeting Obama

The extreme tea party finally cracks

Obama Hatred leads to DC tragedy

Tea Party member holds government hostage…literally!

Early reports had the person with a gun & shots fired. The minds of the left continues to turn:

More Gun violence

Shooter was NRA member

Gun bought at Gun Show

When word got out Capital police were injured it Andrew Sullivan must have already been composing his headline:

Send the medical bill to Ted Cruz

With the timing of the attack 2:15 EST  and a car being used the media dreamed of Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin on the radio:

Attempted assassin was Rush Limbaugh, Ted Cruz fan

The possibilities were endless!    and then came the facts:

The driver wasn’t a Tea Party member

Wasn’t a person involved in politics,

Wasn’t armed

Wasn’t a man

Wasn’t even white!

The driver was a black woman with  mental health issues and a young child violating every stereotype the media held dear, given she lived in Ct. they couldn’t even blame her postpartum depression on lack of access to abortion.

And a two-week story about the violence of the tea party with heavy face time dominating the landscape faded toward the bottom of Memeorandum and the hour-long segments with just a little news tossed on it became a small opening before going back to hitting the GOP on the government shutdown.

It’s sad to see a dream fade so quickly
