Why the MSM Fears Trump Year 2: Local Stories vs National Ones

S.F. WOMAN MUR­DERED BY ILLE­GAL ALIEN http://t.co/i2Z5cxFaqx When does @realDonaldTrump get his apol­ogy from the media? @AmPowerBlog #tcot — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) July 3, 2015

There has been a lot writ­ten lately about the pure hatred of Don­ald Trump by the MSM and his return of the con­tempt shown him but peo­ple often for­get the real rea­son why the media so hate and fear him.

One of the pow­ers of the MSM is the abil­ity to decide if a story is a local one, or a national one, take a look at this story from the San Fran­cisco Chron­i­cle and see if you can fig­ure out if it will become national news:

A for­mer sixth-​grade sci­ence and math teacher at a Rich­mond char­ter school was found guilty on mul­ti­ple counts of child molesta­tion, cap­ping a trial in which pros­e­cu­tors pre­sented evi­dence that he assaulted 13 chil­dren repeat­edly for years — includ­ing one inside a church.

A Con­tra Costa County Supe­rior Court jury found Ronald David Guinto guilty on Thurs­day of 87 counts related to child molesta­tion, said the pros­e­cu­tor, Ali­son Chan­dler. The jury was hung on three other counts, she said.

Yup you guessed it, a search of the story for the word “priest” or “catholic” gen­er­ates no results.

You see a story that high­lights a gay preda­tor, par­tic­u­larly one that shows he was once a scout leader and used that posi­tion to find vic­tims might be harm­ful to the agenda of a media/​liberal/​democrat ally so such sto­ries are con­sid­ered “local”. Mean­while the story of a group of gay men on an inter­na­tional level doing the same is a national story because rather than group­ing them by sex­ual pref­er­ence they can be grouped by a roman col­lar. That’s why such sto­ries while plen­ti­ful to the extreme, have remained “local news”

It’s inter­est­ing to note that our Friend Robert Stacy McCain has noted a few other sto­ries that don’t make national news for exam­ple this exam­ple of vio­lence against women on a col­lege cam­pus some­how didn’t find the inter­est of the many peo­ple in the media and gov­ern­ment push­ing this issue

Yes­ter­day we reported about Pablo Gomez Jr., the rad­i­cal activist at the Uni­ver­sity of California-​Berkeley accused of mur­der­ing one woman and seri­ously stab­bing another. The Col­lege Fix has video that shows Gomez harass­ing Col­lege Repub­li­cans at a cam­pus event last September

Alas Mr. Gomez is not the mem­ber of a frat, is of the wrong eth­nic per­sua­sion and worst of all was a left­ist activist who actively worked to harass con­ser­v­a­tives and Repub­li­cans on cam­pus, there­fore this story of mur­der and vio­lence on cam­pus against women remains a local story of no inter­est to the MSM.

There are of course cases when such sto­ries get out despite the gate­keep­ers for exam­ple the chicago Tor­ture case would have remained a local story if the video wasn’t streamed the MSM gate­keep­ers would have kept it a local chicago and avoided the embar­rass­ment of explain­ing why such tor­ture was not evil and didn’t qual­ify as a “hate” crime.

But those moments were rare enough that the MSM could write them off as an occa­sional reverse, that was until July 3rd 2015 and this tweet

On July 3rd 2015 the Mur­der of Kath­eryn Steinle was just a story high­lighted by con­ser­v­a­tive blog­gers on their sites and a few con­ser­v­a­tive sites Then Don­ald Trump started tweet­ing and as I wrote a few days later every­thing changed:

It is the media that decided Trayvon Mar­tin death was a national story that deserved national reflec­tion. It was also the media that decided that the mur­der of Jessie Dirkhis­ing a 13 year old boy who was bound, drugged, gagged and bru­tally sodom­ized by a pair of gay men was not news­wor­thy enough to be cov­ered nation­ally.
It was the media who decided that the vio­lent multi hour long rapes and mur­ders of Christo­pher New­som and Chan­non Chris­t­ian by a group of five black car­jack­ers was not worth head­lines, but the death of Michael Brown after he robbed & assaulted a store­owner was worth wall to wall coverage.

But Don­ald Trump IS news so when the MSM decided that the mur­der Kathryn Steinle wasn’t news­wor­thy he had other plans

That is why the MSM is so anx­ious about Don­ald Trump and his twit­ter feed, in the pre trump era (1 BD before Don­ald?) a story at reported locally and picked up by con­ser­v­a­tive sites like Bre­it­bart that clashed with the MSM nar­ra­tive could be safely ignored.

Now in the year 2 AT (Anno Trump) any such story is a sin­gle tweet away from not only being national or inter­na­tional news but would do so before the MSM has col­lec­tively agreed on what the nar­ra­tive of the story might be.

This is why the left in gen­eral and the MSM in par­tic­u­lar is so ter­ri­fied, they have lost the power of the nar­ra­tive and will be hard pressed to get it back dur­ing the Trump era.

Be afraid MSM, be very afraid.

S.F. WOMAN MURDERED BY ILLEGAL ALIEN http://t.co/i2Z5cxFaqx When does @realDonaldTrump get his apology from the media? @AmPowerBlog #tcot — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) July 3, 2015

There has been a lot written lately about the pure hatred of Donald Trump by the MSM and his return of the contempt shown him but people often forget the real reason why the media so hate and fear him.

One of the powers of the MSM is the ability to decide if a story is a local one, or a national one, take a look at this story from the San Francisco Chronicle and see if you can figure out if it will become national news:

A former sixth-grade science and math teacher at a Richmond charter school was found guilty on multiple counts of child molestation, capping a trial in which prosecutors presented evidence that he assaulted 13 children repeatedly for years — including one inside a church.

A Contra Costa County Superior Court jury found Ronald David Guinto guilty on Thursday of 87 counts related to child molestation, said the prosecutor, Alison Chandler. The jury was hung on three other counts, she said.

Yup you guessed it, a search of the story for the word “priest” or “catholic” generates no results.

You see a story that highlights a gay predator, particularly one that shows he was once a scout leader and used that position to find victims might be harmful to the agenda of a media/liberal/democrat ally so such stories are considered “local”.  Meanwhile the story of a group of gay men on an international level doing the same is a national story because rather than grouping them by sexual preference they can be grouped by a roman collar.  That’s why such stories while plentiful to the extreme, have remained “local news”

It’s interesting to note that our Friend Robert Stacy McCain has noted a few other stories that don’t make national news for example this example of violence against women on a college campus somehow didn’t find the interest of the many people in the media and government pushing this issue

Yesterday we reported about Pablo Gomez Jr., the radical activist at the University of California-Berkeley accused of murdering one woman and seriously stabbing another. The College Fix has video that shows Gomez harassing College Republicans at a campus event last September

Alas Mr. Gomez is not the member of a frat, is of the wrong ethnic persuasion and worst of all was a leftist activist who actively worked to harass conservatives and Republicans on campus, therefore this story of murder and violence on campus against women remains a local story of no interest to the MSM.

There are of course cases when such stories get out despite the gatekeepers for example the chicago Torture case would have remained a local story if the video wasn’t streamed the MSM gatekeepers would have kept it a local chicago and avoided the embarrassment of explaining why such torture was not evil and didn’t qualify as a “hate” crime.

But those moments were rare enough that the MSM could write them off as an occasional reverse, that was until July 3rd 2015 and this tweet

On July 3rd 2015 the Murder of Katheryn Steinle was just a story highlighted by conservative bloggers on their sites and a few conservative sites Then Donald Trump started tweeting and as I wrote a few days later everything changed:

It is the media that decided Trayvon Martin death was a national story that deserved national reflection. It was also the media that decided that the murder of Jessie Dirkhising a 13 year old boy who was bound, drugged, gagged and brutally sodomized by a pair of gay men was not newsworthy enough to be covered nationally.
It was the media who decided that the violent multi hour long rapes and murders of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian by a group of five black carjackers was not worth headlines, but the death of Michael Brown after he robbed & assaulted a storeowner was worth wall to wall coverage.

But Donald Trump IS news so when the MSM decided that the murder Kathryn Steinle wasn’t newsworthy he had other plans

That is why the MSM is so anxious about Donald Trump and his twitter feed, in the pre trump era (1 BD before Donald?) a story at reported locally and picked up by conservative sites like Breitbart that clashed with the MSM narrative could be safely ignored.

Now in the year 2 AT (Anno Trump) any such story is a single tweet away from not only being national or international news but would do so before the MSM has collectively agreed on what the narrative of the story might be.

This is why the left in general and the MSM in particular is so terrified, they have lost the power of the narrative and will be hard pressed to get it back during the Trump era.

Be afraid MSM, be very afraid.
