Never Mind That Two People Were Shot On The Steps Of A NC Courthouse: EBOLA!
As I write this, it is shortly before 1 pm. About 10 minutes ago, I caught the following Tweet.
Shooting at North Carolina courthouse; lockdown for county employees, searching for suspects.
So, I scanned the major news sources. Nothing. The top story today?
BREAKING: FIVE YEAR OLD BOY DOES NOT HAVE EBOLA
BREAKING: NURSE BEING RELEASED FROM QUARANTINE, DID NOT HAVE EBOLA!
BREAKING: NURSE RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL, RECOVERED FROM EBOLA
[su_center_ad]So, screw the networks. I go to the Nashville, NC media. (Yes, Nashville, NC.)
The North Carolina Highway Patrol and Nash County authorities are on the scene after two people were shot Tuesday morning at the Nash County courthouse in Nashville.
Pictures from Chopper 11 showed crime tape up around the entrance to the courthouse and yellow bullet shell casing markers.
Sheriff Dick Jenkins said deputies are searching for a single suspect. A North Carolina Highway Patrol helicopter was being used to assist in the search in a wooded area. Dogs were also being used.
No word on the condition or injuries of these people, shot on the steps of the freakin’ courthouse in a small freakin’ town in North Freakin’ Carolina!
(Update — in the 20 minutes it took to write this, WTVD is reporting the two victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries.)
Right now, MSNBC and CNN are carrying a news conference from a hospital where a nurse has recovered from Ebola.
How many people will die from gun violence TODAY in the United States, while nobody in America dies from Ebola?
How much anxiety will there be over the ease of access to lethal firearms, while nobody in America dies from Ebola?
Why is the Conservative Media yammering about “Obola” when it was CONSERVATIVES that blocked meaningful gun control legislation, while nobody in America dies from Ebola?
When will the Corporate Owned Media in the United States of America realize their mandate is to inform, not scare? To educate, not alarm? To “show” not “shock”?
