Media Sins of Omission, German Edition

As we’ve noted many times here there are two ways media bias works.

The first, and most com­mon is bias of comis­sion where the MSM/​left pro­motes sto­ries or meme’s to attack the right, usu­ally as wik­ileaks con­firmed at the direct behest of the left. A great exam­ple of this are the attacks and ridicule of Ben Car­son on CNN.

Remov­ing all pre­tense of sub­stan­tive dis­cus­sion, Don Lemon, Marc Lam­ont Hill and Peter Beinart began openly mock­ing the nom­i­na­tion of Dr. Car­son for Sec­re­tary of Hous­ing and Urban Devel­op­ment (HUD).

The scope and sever­ity of the exhib­ited ridicule was so over the top, fel­low CNN pan­elist Brian Stel­ter was both vis­i­bly try­ing to hide his glee and simul­ta­ne­ously uncom­fort­able join­ing in amid the laugh­ter and mockery.

If this was any other media panel mock­ing and ridi­cul­ing a black nom­i­nee for an Obama admin­is­tra­tion the calls of racist out­rage against the net­work would be over­whelm­ing. How­ever, as cus­tom­ary within their hypocrisy, the pon­tif­i­cat­ing left-​wing ide­o­logues can­not even fathom any­one tak­ing exception.

Once again prov­ing that if the left didn’t have dou­ble stan­dards, they would have no stan­dards at all.
But the great­est sin of the media is the abil­ity to define a story as not wor­thy of pro­mo­tion as a national story, like this one:

Germany’s lead­ing news pro­gramme has been slammed for fail­ing to report the rape and mur­der of the 19-​year-​old daugh­ter of an EU offi­cial by an Afghan ‘refugee’.

maria-ladenburgerThe Tagess­chau show, pro­duced by ARD, the world’s largest pub­lic broad­caster, claimed that the story was “too regional”. Oth­ers, how­ever, blame polit­i­cal cor­rect­ness and an estab­lish­ment desire to silence crit­i­cism of mass migration.

Last week’s rev­e­la­tion that 19-​year-​old Maria Laden­burger – a med­ical stu­dent, migrant home vol­un­teer, and daugh­ter of a promi­nent Euro­pean Union (EU) offi­cial – was attacked and killed by a recently-​arrived 17-​year-​old migrant shocked the nation.

Despite hav­ing a bud­get of €6.5 bil­lion (£5.5 bil­lion) and 20,617 employ­ees, the pub­lic broad­caster decided not to allo­cate resources to bring­ing the story to national attention.

ARD’s editor-​in-​chief, Kai Gnif­fke, played down the deci­sion, argu­ing they “very rarely report on indi­vid­ual crim­i­nal cases”.

By decid­ing this news wasn’t fit to print, ger­man media were basi­cally pro­tect­ing Angela Merkel and her sup­port­ers from the con­se­quences of their open bor­ders pol­icy.

Merkel, who recently announced plans to run for a fourth term in Sep­tem­ber, has seen her pop­u­lar­ity plunge in the last year in large part due to her staunch refusal to accept demands from her party’s right wing to limit migrants enter­ing the coun­try to 200,000 per year.

She did not com­ment on the slay­ing in Freiburg and has remained deter­mined to keep Ger­many open to refugees.

That’s the real rea­son why the MSM hates Bre­it­bart news and Trump’s twit­ter account. Lib­er­als like the Kellogg’s peo­ple want to dele­git­imize Bre­it­bart because they dare report sto­ries like this that don’t fit the MSM nar­ra­tive:

Immi­gra­tion advo­cacy groups are ask­ing Cal­i­for­nia Attor­ney Gen­eral Kamala Har­ris to “block fed­eral access” to the data­base con­tain­ing names of gang mem­bers in the state.
The goal is to block access before President-​elect Don­ald Trump is sworn in, thereby pre­vent­ing his admin­is­tra­tion from see­ing the names of indi­vid­u­als who could find them­selves on a the depor­ta­tion short list.Immigration advo­cacy groups are ask­ing Cal­i­for­nia Attor­ney Gen­eral Kamala Har­ris to “block fed­eral access” to the data­base con­tain­ing names of gang mem­bers in the state.

Yeah because noth­ing would unite the rest of the coun­try against the rule of Cal­i­for­nia Lib­er­als like pro­tect­ing gang mem­bers here ille­gally from deportation.

And they really hate Trump and his tweet­ing because in 140 char­ac­ters he can force a story like the Steinle mur­der onto the national stage that the MSM is deter­mined to bury.

As we’ve noted many times here there are two ways media bias works.

The first, and most common is bias of comission where the MSM/left promotes stories or meme’s to attack the right, usually as wikileaks confirmed at the direct behest of the left.  A great example of this are the attacks and ridicule of Ben Carson on CNN.

Removing all pretense of substantive discussion, Don Lemon, Marc Lamont Hill and Peter Beinart began openly mocking the nomination of Dr. Carson for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The scope and severity of the exhibited ridicule was so over the top, fellow CNN panelist Brian Stelter was both visibly trying to hide his glee and simultaneously uncomfortable joining in amid the laughter and mockery.

If this was any other media panel mocking and ridiculing a black nominee for an Obama administration the calls of racist outrage against the network would be overwhelming. However, as customary within their hypocrisy, the pontificating left-wing ideologues cannot even fathom anyone taking exception.

Once again proving that if the left didn’t have double standards, they would have no standards at all.
But the greatest sin of the media is  the ability to define a story as not worthy of promotion as a national story, like this one:

Germany’s leading news programme has been slammed for failing to report the rape and murder of the 19-year-old daughter of an EU official by an Afghan ‘refugee’.

maria-ladenburgerThe Tagesschau show, produced by ARD, the world’s largest public broadcaster, claimed that the story was “too regional”. Others, however, blame political correctness and an establishment desire to silence criticism of mass migration.

Last week’s revelation that 19-year-old Maria Ladenburger – a medical student, migrant home volunteer, and daughter of a prominent European Union (EU) official – was attacked and killed by a recently-arrived 17-year-old migrant shocked the nation.

Despite having a budget of €6.5 billion (£5.5 billion) and 20,617 employees, the public broadcaster decided not to allocate resources to bringing the story to national attention.

ARD’s editor-in-chief, Kai Gniffke, played down the decision, arguing they “very rarely report on individual criminal cases”.

By deciding this news wasn’t fit to print, german media were basically protecting Angela Merkel and her supporters from the consequences of their open borders policy.

Merkel, who recently announced plans to run for a fourth term in September, has seen her popularity plunge in the last year in large part due to her staunch refusal to accept demands from her party’s right wing to limit migrants entering the country to 200,000 per year.

She did not comment on the slaying in Freiburg and has remained determined to keep Germany open to refugees.

That’s the real reason why the MSM hates Breitbart news and Trump’s twitter account.  Liberals like the Kellogg’s people want to delegitimize Breitbart because they dare report stories like this that don’t fit the MSM narrative:

Immigration advocacy groups are asking California Attorney General Kamala Harris to “block federal access” to the database containing names of gang members in the state.
The goal is to block access before President-elect Donald Trump is sworn in, thereby preventing his administration from seeing the names of individuals who could find themselves on a the deportation short list.Immigration advocacy groups are asking California Attorney General Kamala Harris to “block federal access” to the database containing names of gang members in the state.

Yeah because nothing would unite the rest of the country against the rule of California Liberals like protecting gang members here illegally from deportation.

And they really hate Trump and his tweeting because in 140 characters he can force a story like the Steinle murder onto the national stage that the MSM is determined to bury.
