Nancy, Mueller and Datechguy's 4th Law of Media Outrage

DaTechGuy’s Laws of Media Out­rage are some of the most use­ful ways to pre­dict how the media or the left will react in any given moment. Nancy Pelosi’s sur­prise announce­ment against impeach­ment this week pro­vides an excel­lent excuse to pro­mul­gate the newest of these laws.

I believe that Impeach­ment was off the table was known by the Demo­c­rat lead­ers for quite a while. The prob­lem was when to break the news to the voter and donor base whose excep­tions they’ve raised on the issue. The idea was to break the news at a time when it would be least dam­ag­ing to their 2020 chances.

The real ques­tion of course is how can we con­clude did would be the result? Why the answer is as clear as DaTechGuy’s 4th Law of Media Outrage

The degree of media expo­sure of the cor­rup­tion or ille­gal­ity com­mit­ted by any indi­vid­ual or orga­ni­za­tion under inves­ti­ga­tion is directly pro­por­tional to its dis­tance from the media’s ideology.

Datechguy’s 4th law of media outrage

In other words if a tar­get of any inves­ti­ga­tion is close to the media’s ide­ol­ogy (a left­ist demo­c­rat) no leaks will be forth­com­ing and the press will hap­pily await the end of any inves­ti­ga­tion before report­ing, but if the tar­get is a con­ser­v­a­tive or a repub­li­can, whole teams of reporters will be on the case any every leak pro­vided by inves­ti­ga­tors will be pro­mul­gated even to the point of recklessness.

This is actu­ally the point I made to answer Jonah Gold­berg point on the Bush video dur­ing elec­tion 2016:

If we con­cede that Don­ald Trump’s char­ac­ter is bad, Would it be bet­ter for the coun­try to have a Pres­i­dent of poor char­ac­ter who will be under intense scrutiny by the press, pols and law enforce­ment agen­cies (Trump) or to have a Pres­i­dent of poor char­ac­ter who will be given a pass and or defended by the press, the pols and appar­ently the FBI regard­less of what they say or do (Hillary).

Noth­ing has illus­trated this bet­ter than the Mueller investigation/​fishing expedition:

The spe­cial council’s office and the Demo­c­rat mem­bers of the var­i­ous inves­ti­gat­ing com­mit­tees have not been shy about pro­vid­ing the press with infor­ma­tion and the press has not been shy about run­ning with it, whether they be rumors meant to exag­ger­ate what they have or tips to forth­com­ing actions (read the Roger Stone raid). But there is one thing that you can be sure of:

If team Mueller actu­ally HAD evi­dence of impeach­able offenses by Don­ald Trump Nancy Pelosi and Com­pany would have known it 1st and the media would have known it 2nd and the GOP would have known it 3rd and Don­ald Trump would have been toast months if not years ago.

Rush Lim­baugh might dis­agree with me on this and think a deeper game is being played here, and to be sure if they can some­how spin the pub­lic and/​or bluff Trump into think­ing they have some­thing, they’ll act accord­ingly, but I say the real­ity is Mueller has noth­ing, Pelosi knows he has noth­ing and DaTechGuy’s 4th law of media out­rage con­firms it.



Clos­ing thought: In fair­ness I’m of the opin­ion that Pelosi and Com­pany actu­ally thought they would find crimes dur­ing this inves­ti­ga­tion. Democ­rats always project so to such peo­ple the con­cept that Don­ald Trump had not used their own cor­rupt tac­tics (Ura­nium one any­body) to advance his cause sim­ply had not occurred to them and I sus­pect the fact that Mueller could not find evi­dence of actual crimes to charge the Pres­i­dent was a bit of a shock.

Either way it’s most appre­ci­ated.

DaTechGuy’s Laws of Media Outrage are some of the most useful ways to predict how the media or the left will react in any given moment. Nancy Pelosi’s surprise announcement against impeachment this week provides an excellent excuse to promulgate the newest of these laws.

I believe that Impeachment was off the table was known by the Democrat leaders for quite a while. The problem was when to break the news to the voter and donor base whose exceptions they’ve raised on the issue. The idea was to break the news at a time when it would be least damaging to their 2020 chances.

The real question of course is how can we conclude did would be the result? Why the answer is as clear as DaTechGuy’s 4th Law of Media Outrage

The degree of media exposure of the corruption or illegality committed by any individual or organization under investigation is directly proportional to its distance from the media’s ideology.

In other words if a target of any investigation is close to the media’s ideology (a leftist democrat) no leaks will be forthcoming and the press will happily await the end of any investigation before reporting, but if the target is a conservative or a republican, whole teams of reporters will be on the case any every leak provided by investigators will be promulgated even to the point of recklessness.

This is actually the point I made to answer Jonah Goldberg point on the Bush video during election 2016:

If we concede that Donald Trump’s character is bad, Would it be better for the country to have a President of poor character who will be under intense scrutiny by the press, pols and law enforcement agencies (Trump) or to have a President of poor character who will be given a pass and or defended by the press, the pols and apparently the FBI regardless of what they say or do (Hillary).

Nothing has illustrated this better than the Mueller investigation/fishing expedition:

The special council’s office and the Democrat members of the various investigating committees have not been shy about providing the press with information and the press has not been shy about running with it, whether they be rumors meant to exaggerate what they have or tips to forthcoming actions (read the Roger Stone raid). But there is one thing that you can be sure of:

If team Mueller actually HAD evidence of impeachable offenses by Donald Trump Nancy Pelosi and Company would have known it 1st and the media would have known it 2nd and the GOP would have known it 3rd and Donald Trump would have been toast months if not years ago.

Rush Limbaugh might disagree with me on this and think a deeper game is being played here, and to be sure if they can somehow spin the public and/or bluff Trump into thinking they have something, they’ll act accordingly, but I say the reality is Mueller has nothing, Pelosi knows he has nothing and DaTechGuy’s 4th law of media outrage confirms it.



Closing thought:  In fairness I’m of the opinion that Pelosi and Company actually thought they would find crimes during this investigation. Democrats always project so to such people the concept that Donald Trump had not used their own corrupt tactics (Uranium one anybody) to advance his cause simply had not occurred to them and I suspect the fact that Mueller could not find evidence of actual crimes to charge the President was a bit of a shock.
