    MSM protecting BO?
    I am shocked!

    I notice they said, “We will bury this story, and hopefully it will all go away.”
    What they would have said, if they were honest reporters of the news, “The following story is totally wrong because (etc etc.). The reporter knew it was wrong. We apologise.”
    But, they don’t, do they.

    It reminds me of the time a widely publicised photo of a young children in a detention cage was used to show how evil President Trump was.

    But crickets from the Left when it turned out it was taken a couple of years before, during the Obama administration.

    You have to give the Left points for chutzpah and gross hypocrisy, though.

    Indeed. Because they get away with it. Every. Single. Time.

    This little stuff-up won’t give them pause for a minute.

    Not this time. Paul Barry’s brutal excoriation of AFP on Media Watch next Monday is going to go viral. Globally viral over the whole wide world.

    Betcha the MSM isn’t reporting this story:

    Border Apprehensions Drop 73 Percent in Five Months (14 Nov)

    The apprehension of migrants who illegally crossed the border fell from 132,856 in May to 35,444 in October, according to the Southwest Broder Migration Report released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Thursday. This represents a decrease of 73 percent in five months.

    Border Patrol officials and line agents interviewed by Breitbart Texas this week credited actions from the Trump administration and the Mexican government for the dramatic drop. Those actions include the “Remain in Mexico” program for potential asylum seekers and the deployment of Mexico’s newly formed National Guard along the country’s northern and southern borders.

    Between the wall-building and the diplomacy Trump has been doing rather well at re-establishing control of the US-Mexico border. Which is why you won’t read or see it in the the MSM.

    Echos of Gillian Triggs’ belated inquiry into ‘children in detention’.

  9. This isn’t an error, it’s deliberate. Make headlines and as much noise as possible, which the MSM will gladly comply with and then when challenged quietly print a retraction on page eleventy million, which no one will read. I guarantee that this ‘error’ will maintain traction for some time to come.

    And it reminds me of the little girl on the cover of Time Magazine who was not separated from her mother … but hey they lied about that one too.

    Representative Devin Nunes captures the zeitgeist.

    Apologies for that.

    I can only assume that the Democrats think that the media is one of their weapons trying to sell their narrative by objectively documented exclusion of information, and talking points instead of weighing the facts.

    If a dickhead like me can smell bullshit in the Antipodes, I reckon Americans could work it out for themselves.

    Soon when the revolution becomes a live insurrection, the fact that the real power brokers who enable useful idiots don’t give a fuck what anyone else thinks.

    Nunes calls it well and I think his mistakes were anxiety and a deep desire to do to Adam Schiff what I would like to, in my own way.

  12. Overburdened

    ….Give a fuck what anyone else thinks will become apparent.

    BTW Tel

    Australia is not immune.

    I have seen photos shot for maximum negative effect.

    The people being photographed then went back to wandering at liberty.

    This reminds me of the TV ads a few u[years ago with blanchet and that prat who made one little aussie film standing in front of a power station spewing black smoke. I checked it out , it was the Battersea power station in London ,which was closed down when blanchet just started primary school and the male “actor” was getting ready to go to high school . Never mind the truth comrades ,keep up the lying propaganda .

  15. I think this is supreme trolling by an AFP reporter rather than a mistake.

  16. Truth n Justice

    And the Australian media, which is just as bad, are screaming because the government wants to hold them to account. Bleat on you dishonest purveyors of fake news!

    As long as the media needs money to run and pay checks and salaries it requires investors and advertisers in order to generate revenue and keep it self floating. This means that there will always be a bias that is focused in promoting what stake holders one. It is sad but there is hope. Blogs are in-depended so I guess through internet there is always free speech. Problem is the masses. Of course that is if you don’t suffer from the fear of technology and internet xD
