California Shooting At Elementary School Ignored By The Media – Why?

I just read this story over at Crooks and Liars about a deranged shooter on an elementary school playground. Two girls aged 6 and 7 were shot by this nut who apparently yelled “Death to Obama. Kill all the little (expletive). Death to them.” This happened last Friday, Now I’m a news junkie, although I haven’t had as much time as I like to devour the news, but how could that story be completely ignored by the “traditional” media. From the Crooks and Liars story…

A man seemingly bent on violence and destruction stormed Kelly Elementary School in Carlsbad Friday and fired into a crowd of children on the playground, striking two girls, before being chased and tackled by nearby construction workers.

Brendan L. O’Rourke, 41, believed to be a transient, was arrested on six counts of attempted murder and various weapons charges, Carlsbad police said.

A trail of blood led to a classroom, which held two second-graders who suffered bullet wounds to their right arms, police said. The girls, ages 6 and 7, were flown to Rady Children’s Hospital for treatment and were doing well, Carlsbad Police Chief Gary Morrison said.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not really for the media obsessing over these types of stories because I imagine it just gives other nutballs ideas. But to completely ignore this story just seems a bit odd to me. You have to wonder why, especially because similar shootings over the years have gotten obsessive treatment. More from the C & L piece…

And since the rise of racial hatred that has permeated FOX News and right-wing talk radio, it only follows that more and more lone wolves will being popping up. If you think race had no role in this incident you’d be wrong.

The Oceanside man accused of shooting two children with a .357 Magnum revolver Friday afternoon at a Carlsbad elementary school was described by neighbors Saturday as an angry loner who would scream racial insults and obscenities at all hours of the night from inside his small second-floor apartment.

Maybe someone can explain it to me in the comments.

  1. Hard to say to be honest. I don’t know why and am suspicious more than ever when it comes to the media and how they cover stories. Hell I don’t like how they even word stuff, it seems like they are more friendly to propaganda rather than facts. Their headlines are even dubious at times to be honest.

    If you look closely enough you’ll figure out why people are going back to being conservative. They simply don’t report in an unbiased way anymore and guess what the people think the media is liberal, idiots. I guess ‘the people’ are jaded and just listen to the conservative media with their bullshit right wing slant all the time.

    The people are blind and stupid when it comes down to it just look at who they voted for TWICE. Hint the middle name is Walker and the last name is Bush.

  2. I reported it on my blog too Jim! I guess it’s still up to us bloggers to get the truth out which is something the conservaNAZIS hate!
