MJ, Heroes, and Climate Porn



Text  



It strikes me – as I watch a few members of the media prompted into navel-gazing by a letter in the WaPo from the aunt of a deceased Army lieutenant killed in Afghanistan on the same day that Michael Jackson passed in less heroic circumstances – that outrage over the “news” media’s obsessively perverse production decisions should continue until they get their act together.

Our soliders are ignored because the media simply cannot bring themselves to tell us these warriors’ and patriots’ stories (except in ways that fit their preferred narrative), the media having decided that they cannot reconcile that and our nation’s current struggles with their own politics, agendas, and sensationalist impulses.

Think about this lieutenant and his comrades, deceased, wounded, returned intact and still battling, with each pile-on of climate porn and ask yourself what’s wrong with these people.
