When a national newspaper does what a Milwaukee newspaper fails to do 

Words like “RIOT”

“Why we aren’t reporting on the records of the victims of the Kenosha protest shooting,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel fancy sidesteps portraying the characters in the BLM big parade.

”As for the specific question on why the paper is reluctant to use the word “riot,” the Journal Sentinel claims, “We are very careful about labeling events — especially using politically and historically loaded terms… It’s not our job to characterize events with the same words that political campaigns or others with agendas might use.”

    ” It’s not our job to characterize events with the same words that (oppositional) political campaigns or others (than ourselves) with agendas might use. Rather, we aim to accurately and fairly report what we see (as the truth) ….”, —IN OTHER NEWS — Today marks the 120th anniversary of the “Galveston Hurricane”, what many refer to as “The Deadliest Natural Disaster In U.S. History”. We would like to point out its history as a “mostly peaceful” storm, previously passing over many islands with minimal damage. ONLY when confronted with the Texas coastline did the situation escalate. Even with a path of death (8,000+, 6 in WI) and destruction from Texas to Canada, many parts of the continent were totally unscathed. —Lib News Sept 8-13,1900

    They’re so full of s**t. Playing innocent, as if they’re real journalists or something.

    The Wall Street Journal (mentioned in Steve’s blog post) is one of the few news pubs I read anymore.Whenever I see one of the rags with their “Trump is bad” headlines, I just ignore because it’s become noise and nothing more.

    1872 Lewis Carroll:

    “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean − neither more nor less.”

    “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

    “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master − that’s all.”

    2020 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

    Shut up! We have Masters!

    imagine the characterization had the activists been KKK — or SDS?
