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
Where are the other candidates now that this tragic murder has taken place b/c of our unsafe border http://t.co/amaV7tqgAR We need a wall!

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.
