    Default “Maxine Waters offers right-wing alternative universe for Chauvin trial”

    “While Fox News has largely ignored the Derek Chauvin trial compared to competitors, conservative media seized on comments from Rep. Maxine Waters over the weekend”

    “The data shows that for conservative America, the story in Minneapolis is being used as a way to highlight the aggression of protesters rather than the police killing of a Black man.”

    “The three biggest stories on social media about the trial since it began all came this weekend, all from conservative media, all reacting to Waters’ comments on Saturday night. 7 of the top 10 stories during this period came from conservative publishers, all nodding at the prospect of protestor violence.”

    “Conservative media is otherwise looking away from the trial on TV. Data from the Stanford Cable News Analyzer shows that Fox News has spent 4.2 minutes this month covering the trial, compared to 51.7 minutes from CNN and 40.7 minutes from MSNBC.”

    As I’ve said all along, right wing media hates their audience being exposed to primary sources, why give them the facts in real time when you can reframe facts afterwards to benefit the perspective that makes you money

    However, as soon as the wedge issue appears, they are all over it, easier to sell melodrama if it falls into line with the reality you want to present, not about Chauvin’s actions now, but Water’s comments

    Is it any wonder the right is such easy prey for demagoguery

    Is this a defense of her comments?

    And don't be afraid to hold a mirror to your own side about demagoguery. Seeing it on full display with rhetoric regarding the cops and people in this country and your favorites CNN and MSNBC are huge contributors.

    Has no relation to her comments

    And is your understanding of what is the left’s use of “demagoguery” coming from what you see or what you have been led to see? There is a reason why the left lacks the name media demagogues that have defined the right for the last four decades

    Your Sharpton's and Jesse Jackson's are the easy answers. But of course they are far from the only ones who engage in racial demagoguery. Now admittedly I don't watch cable news. But in this day of social media and Twitter it's easy to see clips from the three major cable news channels and you see plenty of racial demagoguery from the left on CNN and MSNBC. This is speaking at a high level of course. We can get way more into the weeds and more specifics. But the rhetoric from some around the black community and the cops is at demogogic levels. You may not want to say anything about it because in today's world it's not acceptable for white people to do so. But that doesn't change the fact that it is there. And of course with today's extremely high level of tribalism/partisanship very few want to call out their own.

    Thank you.

    FOX is right in not hyping this story. At the end of the day, it’s a local story involving a poorly trained cop and a drug addled criminal but the media succeeded in making it, literally, an international issue.

    And I’ll go ahead say the quiet part out loud: it’s only because Floyd was black. If Floyd had been white it would be—Floyd who? Who’s Floyd? What are you talking about?
