Georgia Woman Uses Handgun to Defend Self, Children From Home Invader: Media Absent

Share

It seems that people refusing to die is not newsworthy.  A Loganville GA woman shot an home invader, protecting herself and her children, but the national media seems to be completely disinterested.  First, here is the video about the shooting…


Note that I had to get this video from the Daily Mail. While there were some local outlets that covered it, but it’s a shame when some many Americans have to rely on a Brit Newspaper for news that out own media should be covering. Legal Insurrection has more on the blackout.

The story has been completed ignored by national media. The only non-local source that had covered the story, reported by the Atlanta Journal Constitution this past Friday, has been from another country: Britain’s Daily Mail. A slew of local outlets picked up on the AJC’s story covered it, including WSB-TV in Georgia, a local FOX affiliate in North Carolina. By Sunday morning, FOX news national published the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s January 4 writeup on their site.

It took a foreign newspaper and Facebook to bring news relevant to the gun-control debate to my attention. The institutional news media is getting beaten to stories and news. So long as information flows freely, their irrelevancy will be assured.

Two points:

1.  This story will be ignored, because it doesn’t fit the narrative.

2.  If the Democrats got what they wished, this family would be dead.  Which, would actually fit the narrative, and it might get covered.

    It really does say something about the state of the media when you have to look outside the country to find a paper that reports on stories like this, doesn’t it? The MSM is just going to keep pushing the liberal agenda and report only the stories that fit the mold and I am still hoping that once people realize they were duped on the fiscal cliff taxes they will begin to question the media.

    “If the Democrats got what they wished, this family would be dead. Which, would actually fit the narrative, and it might get covered.”

    That is the only way the story would have been covered. Good point, Matt.
