Where are the Warner Todd Huston Stories in the MSM?

[cap­tion id=“attachment_102213” align=“aligncenter” width=“770”] Via facebook[/caption]

Two weeks ago I noticed this story at PJ Media that enraged me:

At about 1 AM or so on Sat­ur­day morn­ing, I was awak­ened by a noise out­side my home. I can’t really say what the noise was as it woke me from a deep sleep. It was just a shout that awoke me. I looked at my win­dow and saw what struck me as a strange light out­side. So, I went to the front door…

And saw my car inte­rior on fire…

The sur­face of my pas­sen­ger seat was set aflame and the entire inte­rior of the car destroyed. For­tu­nately it isn’t a new car (it’s a 1999 Oldsmo­bile 88). But unfor­tu­nately, because it is so old I never put it on com­pre­hen­sive cov­er­age leav­ing it only at lia­bil­ity cov­er­age. So, insur­ance won’t cover this destruc­tion and I am now with­out a car.

While I pro­moted the gofundme cam­paign on twit­ter and on this site I choose not to write a full post on the sub­ject because I wanted to see what the MSM would do. After all here is a reporter who has been cov­er­ing some con­tro­ver­sial groups and pulling no punches who has been the tar­get for actual harass­ment at his home now cul­mi­nat­ing in the torch­ing of his car.

Well it’s been two weeks so I went to google and did a news search on Warner Todd Hus­ton on google news and at Yahoo News.

On both sites you had a smat­ter­ing of his arti­cles at Bre­it­bart from Trans­sex­ual Arrested for Alleged Rape of 10-​Year-​Old Girl in a Bathroom

A Wyoming man who iden­ti­fies as a woman named “Michelle” is now stand­ing trial for the alleged rape of a 10-​year-​old girl, reports say.
Miguel Mar­tinez was arrested after the child’s mother reported the attack to Cas­par, Wyoming, police. Mar­tinez was arrested and pleaded not guilty last May, and now the trial is underway.

To cov­er­ing the unrav­el­ling of yet another fake hate crime in Michigan

A black man has been arrested for a series of racist graf­fiti attacks that shocked minor­ity stu­dents start­ing last fall at East­ern Michi­gan University.

How­ever Yahoo had no results con­cern­ing this inci­dent and at google the only other result I found was this piece at the Canada free press:

Warner main­tains his own web­site, Pub­lius’ Forum, (pub​lius​fo​rum​.com). He began blog­ging in 2001, mak­ing a name for him­self in the “blo­gos­phere” early on. He got in on the ground floor at the urg­ing of the late Andrew Bre­it­bart when Andrew began his now-​famous web­site in 2008. Warner has con­tin­ued to write for Bre­it­bart since then, in addi­tion to many other pub­li­ca­tions that carry his work.

Huston’s son has set up a GoFundMe page in hopes of rais­ing enough funds to replace his car. Hus­ton says it was an old car, only cov­ered by lia­bil­ity insur­ance. For most in this busi­ness, writ­ing does not make one rich, or even com­fort­able. It is a labor of love and com­mit­ment to our beloved coun­try – a nation now threat­ened by the forces of anarchy.

But ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, Wash­ing­ton Post, NY Times, PBS etc? Not a peep.

I called Warner to ask him if, given the MSM “reporters are in dan­ger” meme that we saw this year, if any­one in the MSM had con­tacted him: “Nobody from the MSM”.

The one excep­tion was the Daily caller, they did con­tact him but “decided not to go for it as they didn’t see enough to blame it on somebody.”

Mean­while the MSM has no short­age of head­lines about the threats reporters face under trump:

The Day: Trump’s trou­bling anti-​media threats

Wash­ing­ton Post: Trump esca­lates threats against press, calls news cov­er­age ‘frankly disgusting’

LA Times: Op-​Ed Which is worse, Trump’s anti-​media rhetoric, or his pros­e­cu­tion of 2 journalists?

Real Clear Pol­i­tics: GOP Silence on Trump’s Press Threats Is Shameful

SF Chron­i­cle: The world gets more Pre­car­i­ous for Press Freedom

St Louis Post Dis­patch: Protests are a bat­tle­ground for press freedom

But my favorite is this piece is the Chicago Tri­bune that sug­gested reestab­lish­ing trust in the press via local report­ing:

But the real answer is a return to local report­ing. It may come in the form of non­profit, reader-​supported web­sites like the Texas Tri­bune or New Haven Inde­pen­dent. It may come when some­body fig­ures out a for-​profit model that can deliver news to smaller audi­ences. But only when we know our reporters again will we begin to trust them.

While ignor­ing the tar­get­ing of a reporter in their own neck of the woods. (Inci­den­tally Warner told he he checked with his neigh­bors after the inci­dent before the car was torched, none of them had even as much as an egg thrown at their win­dows dur­ing the var­i­ous times he was hit.)

Warner has car­ried on, he’s installed some secu­rity cam­eras and put up a sign and is wait­ing for the 30 day period so he can down­load what has been raised via the gofundme cam­paign to get another car. I’m sorry to say he’s raised less that 50% of his $10,000 goal for the cam­paign (you can donate here if you want to help) and he’s kept on writ­ing despite the silence of the press.

Of course if he had been a lib­eral jour­nal­ist in a con­ser­v­a­tive city crit­i­cally cov­er­ing repub­li­cans, the tea party or anti-​abortion activists who had his car torched he would be on TV every sin­gle day to the point where you knew his face bet­ter than Trump’s

So the next time some left­ist or media per­son talks about how Don­ald Trump is encour­ag­ing vio­lence against the press tell them about Warner Todd Hus­ton and ask them why they are hear­ing about this for the first time?


As I have no sex­ual secrets of rich lib­er­als to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing inter­views all the time hop­ing peo­ple like it enough to pay for it.

At about 1 AM or so on Saturday morning, I was awakened by a noise outside my home. I can’t really say what the noise was as it woke me from a deep sleep. It was just a shout that awoke me. I looked at my window and saw what struck me as a strange light outside. So, I went to the front door…

And saw my car interior on fire…

The surface of my passenger seat was set aflame and the entire interior of the car destroyed. Fortunately it isn’t a new car (it’s a 1999 Oldsmobile 88). But unfortunately, because it is so old I never put it on comprehensive coverage leaving it only at liability coverage. So, insurance won’t cover this destruction and I am now without a car.

While I promoted the gofundme campaign on twitter and on this site I choose not to write a full post on the subject because I wanted to see what the MSM would do.  After all here is a reporter who has been covering some controversial groups and pulling no punches who has been the target for actual harassment at his home now culminating in the torching of his car.

Well it’s been two weeks so I went to google and did a news search on Warner Todd Huston on google news and at Yahoo News.

On both sites you had a smattering of his articles at Breitbart from Transsexual Arrested for Alleged Rape of 10-Year-Old Girl in a Bathroom

For most in this business, writing does not make one rich, or even comfortable. It is a labor of love and commitment to our beloved country – a nation now threatened by the forces of anarchy.

But ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, Washington Post, NY Times, PBS etc? Not a peep.

I called Warner to ask him if, given the MSM “reporters are in danger” meme that we saw this year, if anyone in the MSM had contacted him: “Nobody from the MSM”.

The one exception was the Daily caller, they did contact him but “decided not to go for it as they didn’t see enough to blame it on somebody.”

Meanwhile the MSM has no shortage of headlines about the threats reporters face under trump:

The Day: Trump’s troubling anti-media threats

Washington Post: Trump escalates threats against press, calls news coverage ‘frankly disgusting’

LA Times: Op-Ed Which is worse, Trump’s anti-media rhetoric, or his prosecution of 2 journalists?

Real Clear Politics: GOP Silence on Trump’s Press Threats Is Shameful

SF Chronicle: The world gets more Precarious for Press Freedom

St Louis Post Dispatch: Protests are a battleground for press freedom

But my favorite is this piece is the Chicago Tribune that suggested reestablishing trust in the press via local reporting:

But the real answer is a return to local reporting. It may come in the form of nonprofit, reader-supported websites like the Texas Tribune or New Haven Independent. It may come when somebody figures out a for-profit model that can deliver news to smaller audiences. But only when we know our reporters again will we begin to trust them.

While ignoring the targeting of a reporter in their own neck of the woods.  (Incidentally Warner told he he checked with his neighbors after the incident before the car was torched, none of them had even as much as an egg thrown at their windows during the various times he was hit.)

Warner has carried on, he’s  installed some security cameras and put up a sign and is waiting for the 30 day period so he can download what has been raised via the gofundme campaign to get another car.  I’m sorry to say he’s raised less that 50% of his $10,000 goal for the campaign (you can donate here if you want to help) and he’s kept on writing despite the silence of the press.

Of course if he had been a liberal journalist in a conservative city critically covering republicans, the tea party or anti-abortion activists who had his car torched he would be on TV every single day to the point where you knew his face better than Trump’s

So the next time some leftist or media person talks about how Donald Trump is encouraging violence against the press tell them about Warner Todd Huston and ask them why they are hearing about this for the first time?


As I have no sexual secrets of rich liberals to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing interviews all the time hoping people like it enough to pay for it.
