On Project Veritas, Census MSM/MSNBC/Morning Joe Channels Chick-Fil-A

There is one side effect of Chick Fil-A’s pol­icy of not open­ing on Sun­day that isn’t talked about much.

Because Chick-​Fil-​A is closed on Sun­day the busi­ness that nor­mally would go to Chick-​fil-​A goes elsewhere.

While that busi­ness likely isn’t as big as the rest of the week and there are likely a few peo­ple for who no chicken sand­wich can replace Chick-​fil-​A (per­son­ally I think the spicy fil­let at Wendy’s is bet­ter) There are a lot of small eater­ies that are very grate­ful to not have to com­pete with Chick-​Fil-​A for at least one day a week.

MSM in gen­eral and MSNBC In par­tic­u­lar is a lot like Chick-​fil-​A on Sun­day to con­ser­v­a­tive sites. Ignor­ing sto­ries and giv­ing us the business

Case in point, Project Ver­i­tas and the Oba­macare Nav­i­ga­tor story:

Last week we had three posts on the sub­ject of Project Ver­i­tas’ video show­ing nav­i­ga­tors advis­ing peo­ple to lie con­cern­ing their income includ­ing an exclu­sive inter­view with Daniel Fran­cisco recorded before the release of the first video.

Since that time a sec­ond inter­view has been released with more nav­i­ga­tors illus­trat­ing that Juan Williams not with­stand­ing, this wasn’t an iso­lated incident.

And Sat­ur­day I inter­viewed Daniel again on DaT­e­chGuy on DaRadio

and yes­ter­day Project Ver­i­tas tweeted us that more is coming…

But if you aren’t read­ing con­ser­v­a­tive site, or watch­ing fox news or local news in Texas you still haven’t heard of this.

Just like the break­ing Cen­sus scan­dal. This broke Mon­day Night at the New York Post. Yes­ter­day the cen­sus depart­ment said this:

We learned about the infor­ma­tion today, and we’re review­ing the infor­ma­tion con­tained in that arti­cle,” said Luiz San­tos, the act­ing direc­tor of the divi­sion of con­gres­sional liai­son and com­mu­ni­ca­tions in the Depart­ment of Labor’s inspec­tor general’s office. San­tos said he could nei­ther con­firm nor deny whether the IG’s office had opened an investigation.

Zero hedge put it well:

Fol­low­ing the White House’s igno­rance of any­thing that could be going on at the Cen­sus Bureau (apart from know­ing for sure that the report on jobs data manip­u­la­tion was mis­lead­ing), the Cen­sus Bureau itself has chimed in…

*CEN­SUS BUREAU SEES NOSYS­TEMIC MANIP­U­LA­TIONOF JOBS DATA

So that’s good then — just unsystematic?

So this is the first they have heard of it and even if it hap­pened it is “unsystematic”.

Not accord­ing to the lat­est from the post today:

I don’t know how high up in the Cen­sus Bureau the orders to fake employ­ment sur­vey data came from, but the direc­tor of the Philadel­phia region was aware of those charges against one of his field rep­re­sen­ta­tives back in 2010.

Fer­nando E. Arm­strong, the regional direc­tor at the time, admit­ted as much in an inter­nal Cen­sus report I have reviewed.

And that field rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Julius Buck­mon, who filed as many as 100 fake reports a month — and admit­ted to me fak­ing house­hold sur­vey reports — was not the only field rep to do so, accord­ing to a Cen­sus source.

Lets review:

1. We have a report of fraud to manip­u­late labor states before an elec­tion
2. a state­ment by the Cen­sus bureau say­ing they just heard about it and it’s not sys­tem­atic
3. A follow-​up report that directly con­tra­dicts the state­ment of the Cen­sus bureau.

There is a word for a story like that: News­wor­thy

But not if you are the MSM, not if you are MSNBC and not if you are Morn­ing Joe who has yet to find either of these sto­ries worth their time.

Per­haps this might because they like to spread the wealth. Because they leave these sto­ries to sites like mine they give us traf­fic and vis­i­bil­ity. They are sim­ply try­ing to help the lit­tle guy by giv­ing us a chance by giv­ing peo­ple a rea­son to visit us and hit or tip jars.

How­ever a more cyn­i­cal per­son you likely con­clude this is because they don’t want to change the Oba­macare story focus from the web site and cer­tainly not want­ing to deal with fraud before the president’s elec­tion. They want to pro­tect this admin­is­tra­tion & this president.

Hmmm maybe they ARE like Chick-​fil-​A. It’s all about loy­alty to the reli­gion of lib­er­al­ism and to their God.

Update: The new Ver­i­tas video is out:

I’ll have more to say about this tomorrow.

There is one side effect of Chick Fil-A’s policy of not opening on Sunday that isn’t talked about much.

Because Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sunday the business that normally would go to Chick-fil-A goes elsewhere.

While that business likely isn’t as big as the rest of the week and there are likely a few people for who no chicken sandwich can replace Chick-fil-A (personally I think the spicy fillet at Wendy’s is better) There are a lot of small eateries that are very grateful to not have to compete with Chick-Fil-A for at least one day a week.

MSM in general and MSNBC In particular is a lot like Chick-fil-A on Sunday to conservative sites. Ignoring stories and giving us the business

Case in point, Project Veritas and the Obamacare Navigator story:

Last week we had three posts on the subject of Project Veritas’ video showing navigators advising people to lie concerning their income including an exclusive interview with Daniel Francisco recorded before the release of the first video.

Since that time a second interview has been released with more navigators illustrating that Juan Williams not withstanding, this wasn’t an isolated incident.

And Saturday I interviewed Daniel again on DaTechGuy on DaRadio

and yesterday Project Veritas tweeted us that more is coming…

 

But if you aren’t reading conservative site, or watching fox news or local news in Texas you still haven’t heard of this.

Just like the breaking Census scandal. This broke Monday Night at the New York Post. Yesterday the census department said this:

“We learned about the information today, and we’re reviewing the information contained in that article,” said Luiz Santos, the acting director of the division of congressional liaison and communications in the Department of Labor’s inspector general’s office. Santos said he could neither confirm nor deny whether the IG’s office had opened an investigation.

Zero hedge put it well:

Following the White House’s ignorance of anything that could be going on at the Census Bureau (apart from knowing for sure that the report on jobs data manipulation was misleading), the Census Bureau itself has chimed in…

*CENSUS BUREAU SEES NO ‘SYSTEMIC MANIPULATION’ OF JOBS DATA

So that’s good then – just unsystematic?

So this is the first they have heard of it and even if it happened it is “unsystematic”.

Not according to the latest from the post today:

I don’t know how high up in the Census Bureau the orders to fake employment survey data came from, but the director of the Philadelphia region was aware of those charges against one of his field representatives back in 2010.

Fernando E. Armstrong, the regional director at the time, admitted as much in an internal Census report I have reviewed.

And that field representative, Julius Buckmon, who filed as many as 100 fake reports a month — and admitted to me faking household survey reports — was not the only field rep to do so, according to a Census source.

Lets review:

1. We have a report of fraud to manipulate labor states before an election
2. a statement by the Census bureau saying they just heard about it and it’s not systematic
3. A follow-up report that directly contradicts the statement of the Census bureau.

There is a word for a story like that: Newsworthy

But not if you are the MSM, not if you are MSNBC and not if you are Morning Joe who has yet to find either of these stories worth their time.

Perhaps  this  might because they like to spread the wealth. Because they leave these stories to sites like mine they give us traffic and visibility. They are simply trying to help the little guy by giving us a chance by giving people a reason to visit us and hit or tip jars.

However a more cynical person you likely conclude this is because they don’t want to change the Obamacare story focus from the web site and certainly not wanting to deal with fraud before the president’s election. They want to protect this administration & this president.

Hmmm maybe they ARE like Chick-fil-A. It’s all about loyalty to the religion of liberalism and to their God.

Update: The new Veritas video is out:

I’ll have more to say about this tomorrow.
