No, 'Technology' Isn't Killing The MSM....

Is it just me or does it seem like the MSM is more upset about JLaw's nudey photos being hacked than about 1400 rapes in Rotherham?

I don't recommend holding your breath waiting for any MSM articles about how the hacker was clearly disenfranchised by society. Plus the MSM didn't spend a decade claiming that anyone who said there were hackers out there was clearly some kind of technophobic lunatic.

Ace of Spades blog makes an important point here (as well as pointing out another case the MSM is desperate not to report). The repellent thing about the MSM's slippery reporting is not just the point blank refusal to cover certain stories, but all that combined with a determination to ram other stories down our throats as disturbing insights into the dark heart of our society.

The MSM published millions of words of agonised opinionating over whether or not the police were 'insensitive' to the family of Stephen Lawrence, but now we have a case where, amongst other things, evidence in a rape case was lost and the MSM reports that like it's just one of those things. Could happen to anyone. Probably down the back of the sofa. Let's just draw a line under it and move on.

As Stalin might have said - one rape is a tragedy. 1400 rapes is a statistic.

The trouble with you fear-mongering conspiracy theorists is you see this kind of thing as somehow being connected in some sinister way. Nothing could be further from the truth: coverage by the professionals is quite simply proportionate to public interest and especially to the harm done. For example, comparing references to the BBC’s online coverage of the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence (and the subsequent lessons to be taught), with the attack by militants on London Transport in 2005 that claimed 52 dead and 700 injuries (many of which were very minor) gets you this on Google UK:

BBC.co.uk+Stephen Lawrence About 11,000,000 results (0.29 seconds)

bbc.co.uk+2005+London bombings About 644,000 results (0.29 seconds)

See? Neck and neck – the very definition of getting it about right.

The reason that some stories are reported over others is the politically correct "narrative"...
