The verminous reality contortionists of the MSM continue to outdo themselves with their cunning little warnings, sly manipulations, pernicious lies, perverse elisions and misleading images. I showed here how the Chicago Tribune exemplifies this by working on the principle that most readers just skim the 'news' and are easily taken in (propagandised) by visuals. In this instance their pictorial representation of the city's top mug shots (90% black or hispanic) front-loaded all the whites onto the opening sets of images, on the assumption that most readers would not look much further.
I learn from SBPDL of similar chicanery over at Alabama online 'news' rag Al.com. "Incident at Edge 12 movie theater could bring worries over flash mobs closer to home" they warn us. As they should, given that 400 - yes, four hundred - black youth rioted and closed down a movie theatre over Christmas. Not that you'd ever know from the article that the rioters were 'people of colour'.
Au contraire. Au contraire. In fact the images they showed were of white flash mobs, but in this case college kids dancing for charity. And look at the image of that shifty guy with the phone. White, of course.
Now admittedly they did show, in small writing, that this particular mob was peaceful. But hey, you gotta work with what you have! And in this instance, working on the well-establsihed principle that a picture is worth a thousand words, they've successfully linked the 'beware of flash mobs' warning with the images of white 'mobs'.
Nice work, huh?
I tell you, Pravda under Stalin would have been embarrassed to publish such grotesque misrepresentations.
