How "Liberal" Media Helps The GOP With It's Fake Healthcare (More Examples Of The Corporate Media's Coverups)
You can observe this in the Iraq War media coverage as well;
Corporate Media's Iraq War Coverup: Incontrovertible Proof Of Network News & The Beltway Media Covering Facts About The Iraq War For Their GOP Masters
Generally. it is the silence that helps the right wing lies the most, such as the way they use it with healthcare;
Media Matters: The GOP is counting on media’s silence and right-wing media myths to push a train wreck of a health care bill that would strip health care from tens of millions to slash taxes for the wealthiest Americans. Right-wing media have repeatedly assisted the GOP with claims that ACA is in a “death spiral” and have attempted to discredit the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office after its report found that up to 24 million people would lose health insurance under the AHCA. Right-wing media have even tried to pacify millions of Americans that would lose access to insurance by absurdly telling them to just go to the emergency room. As Talk Poverty’s Jeremy Slevin pointed out, “It is the responsibility of the press to draw out the contents of the Senate’s health care bill—before it is too late.”
This phenomenon of silence on important facts that creates incendiary rhetoric also manifests itself with Muslims as I covered here;
The Phenomenon Of The Muslim Narrative In America (OR Debunking Fox News Lies About Muslims Part 1)
This post seeks to highlight one example of such coverage;
A girl was tortured and killed by a Christian in a clear example of a hate attack which would be a terror attack if a Muslim had done it to a Christian but Laura Ingraham uses the GOP's tradition of demonizing Latinos to explain it away (a standard Fox ploy as explained below)...
Democracy Now: Virginia: Muslim Teenager Kidnapped, Murdered After Ramadan Prayers
In Virginia, police arrested 22-year-old Darwin Martinez Torres Sunday for allegedly murdering a 17-year-old Muslim girl after she left a restaurant following nighttime prayers in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Sterling. Nabra Hassanen disappeared early Sunday after she and a group of friends were confronted by a motorist outside a 24-hour IHOP near her mosque, the All Dulles Area Muslim Society. Police found Hassanen’s remains Sunday afternoon in a nearby pond. She was reportedly killed by blows from a metal bat. A recent study by the Council on American-Islamic Relations found anti-Muslim hate crimes surged in 2016 over the previous year, rising by 44 percent.
The phenomenon in the same we observed in the UK with its attack on a mosque by a right winger;
London mosque attack suspect named, according to media outlets
London (CNN)The driver of the van that plowed into pedestrians near a mosque in north London has been identified as Darren Osborne, 47, a resident of Cardiff in Wales, according to multiple UK media outlets. One man died and nine people were hospitalized following the assault, the latest in a series of terror attacks to hit the United Kingdom this year. The driver, a white man, was wrestled to the ground by members of the public and then arrested at the scene, officials said. He was being held on suspicion of terrorism offenses, police said. Eyewitnesses reported chaotic scenes as the incident unfolded just after midnight, when evening Ramadan prayers had finished. British Prime Minister Theresa May said the attack was directed at Muslims and condemned it as "every bit as sickening" as deadly Islamist attacks that hit the country in recent months.
The Laura Ingraham Example
Here is Laura Ingraham demonstrating HOW the right wing media does these sorts of coverups (with the media silence helping sell that erroneous beliefs/talking-points/lie to the people);
Laura Ingraham exploits the murder of a young Muslim woman to argue American Muslims "should be with Trump"Ingraham also called reports that Muslim women fear for their lives in public "fake news"
Me: Be with Trump? The guy who lies and said he say Muslims dancing in the streets in New Jersey on 9/11 and lied that he had friends who died on 9/11? ...
CALLING B.S. Watch: Michael Daly Calls Out Trump’s 9/11 Lies
Daily Beast: 15 Years of Donald Trump’s 9/11 Lies, Insults, and Slights From the ‘Muslims cheered’ lie to charity claims, the New Yorker has a huge history of indifference and contempt for the darkest day in his city’s history.
Clearly Laura Ingraham has evil intentions (or she is extremely stupid and iIdoubt shes stupid).
Once again, media silence is helping here;
Media Matters: The Awful 9/11 Trump Stories The Sunday Shows All Ignored While Remembering 9/11
IN THE NAME OF THE FODDER 7/27/2011 The Fox News rapid-response team distinguishes violence in the name of a religion from the practitioners of that religion -- as long as it's Christianity.
Here Laura Ingraham is denying that Andre Brevik was Christian in any way. Despite his manifesto with a cross on it and his idolization of Christian crusaders.
