Sometimes DaTechGuy’s Laws of Media Outrage are Violated

In Science a “Law” is something that is always true, outside of science in criminal law for example, or moral law, people violate it all the time.

That’s why we have confession.

DaTechGuy’s Laws of Media Outrage are more like the moral or criminal laws rather than the laws of science because while it’s rare, very rare, sometimes, just sometimes the media doesn’t follow them.

For example:

A man trashed his pizza restaurant and ice cream shop near Atlanta to fake a racially motivated burglary so he could file an insurance claim, police said.


Gwinnett County police officers responded just before 9:30 p.m. Wednesday after a 911 call reporting a man damaging the businesses, according to a Friday news release. The caller said the man was driving a black Chevrolet Silverado without a license plate.


Officers stopped a truck matching that description as it was leaving the shopping center and noticed televisions attached to brackets with damaged drywall in the back, the release says. They learned the driver, 31-year-old Edawn Louis Coughman, owned the businesses.

I found this via this link on twitter.

What’ really shocking is that it’s in complete violation against DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of media outrage which states:

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

ABC could have classified this as a local story and perhaps it has been when it comes to TV, but at least when it comes to twitter, ABC took a newsworthy story against their narrative and made it a national story.

They deserve credit for it, I gave them some on twitter and the rest they’re getting here.

Final thought, Kinda sad that when a news organization acts like it consists of actual journalists rather than advocates it’s rare enough to be newsworthy.
