WTF MSM!? No death penalty for Vegas shooter!?

Just embarrassing …

Trump didn’t call for death penalty in Vegas! … After President Trump called for the death penalty for the jihadi who drove through a crowd of people in Manhattan, the media tried attacking him for not demanding it for the Las Vegas shooter. There’s one big problem. The Las Vegas shooter is already dead. One of the outlets caught in the trap was GQ. Their excuse? “The discrepancy [Trump not calling for death penalty] is probably related to the fact that the Las Vegas Shooter is dead. We regret the error.” Um, yeah, “probably.” It wasn’t just GQ. Oh, and one more.

Media mostly silent on sex abuse report about progressive darling … Ever since the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault story broke, there have been almost daily reports of women and men coming forward stating they have been harassed, assaulted, or, worst of all, raped. Yesterday, Politico published a report by Michael Calderone detailing how Mother Jones D.C. bureau chief David Corn was “investigated for inappropriate workplace behavior.” The story includes an email chain in which a female employee accused Corn of inappropriate touching. In addition to Politico, only two other mainstream outlets reported on the news. The Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold showed how only Fox News and Mediate followed up on the Politico story. Oh, and CNN’s Brian Stelter gave it 18 words in his daily email. One of those words was “nuanced.”

The Hill’s embarrassment … The Washington Examiner’s Timothy P. Carney outlines how a ridiculous take on Energy Secretary Rick Perry’s comments on fossil fuels and sexual assaults “is why nobody trusts the media.” Perry was speaking about energy development in the third world. He made a comment about how electricity, powered by fossil fuels, would bring many benefits, including a reduction in sexual assault, literally by shining a light on communities. The Hill tweeted: “Rick Perry suggests fossil fuels help prevent sexual assault.” As Carney shows, there’s actually data and studies that show that more lighting does in fact, reduce crime, including sexual assault.
