NBC Bans Reporters From Using the Word "Riots' To Refer to The Minnesota Riots

Okay.

NBC is prohibiting reporters from using the word "riot" in its coverage of violent outbursts in Minnesota that have occurred in response to the killing of George Floyd.

“While the situation on the ground in Minneapolis is fluid, and there has been violence, it is most accurate at this time to describe what is happening there as 'protests'-not riots," NBC host Craig Melvin wrote on Twitter Thursday.

Okay, that's fine, but check out FoxNews, during the hours controlled by the Christ Wallace/Chris Stirewalt liberal "News Division," and see if anyone on Fox says "riots."

I saw chyrons on Fox through the day that repeatedly called riots "protests."

On Fox. Which is just CNN with fat, red-faced male anchors.

The only difference between NBC and Fox is that NBC is being transparent about its censorship/euphemism -- whereas Fox gives these orders behind the scenes, and threatens to fire reporters and contributors for breaking the rules and, I'd imagine, even exposing the existance of the rules.

NBC, as biased and leftwing as it is, is clearly announcing its censorship policies here.

Is Fox doing the same? Or hiding them, because they know their audience will abandon them en masse if the truth that they're a fundamentally progressive/neoliberal organization is permitted to come out?

Yup:

Lou Dobbs asked reporter Mike Tobin about not calling the rioters rioters (Tobin was calling them demonstators) but Tobin kind of tried to change the subject.

The orders have gone out from the Neoliberal Brain Trust at Fox.

Secret orders, though! Shhhhh! We neoliberals are making a lot of money off these stupid deplorable rubes!

53 Note to "protestors": don't listen to the white people who have come from some other town or state to "help" you in your "struggle", particularly if they are encouraging you to "protest" in the suburbs. Because if you head to the suburbs to "protest" there will be blood.

They don't care about you, they want blood, and anyone's will do (except of course for their own).

109 Dang, and an Ethiopian restaurant now threatened by fire.

In the Rodney King riots - er, demonstrations - the northern high-tide mark, where it stopped, was just across from the CBS Studios in the Fairfax area. Location of a fantastic Ethiopian restaurant - Walia. Pretty good Indian bakery next door too.

I remember that hit, close to home, back then. Well, kinda.

That violence should not be executed by everyone of a common skin color against businesses perceived to be owned by a common skin color.

Um. Joe Scarborough is a public figure. He's going to have to *prove* malice.

I'm not sure he wants to drag the whole intern-killing thing and whether Trump is fabricating any facts or ignoring any exculpatory information into a court.

214 So let's play along. Create a whole mess of signs that read, "PROTESTERS" while DNC headquarters, msm news stations, and specifically lefty organizations are looted and burned to the ground. Lots of cameras going from every angle - and when opposite, violent reactions from police and the media, we then actually have a basis for the protests - - the fueling of the racial divide in this country by media and cops by selective enforcement of "protests" based on race- - actual evidence not manufactured.

Police aren't a flight risk.
I'm not aware of any police perp going on to commit more violent crimes while the incident is reviewed.

But I might have missed something.

Except for the Obama-worshiping nut LAPD garbage who went up to Lake Arrowhead for his stand-off, can't remember a cop doing anything but meekly showing up for the process if they get prosecuted.

The rules governing and/or protecting a designated "platform" vs a distributor or a publisher are pretty clear, and everyone on the interwebs are haw hawing about how Trump can't change that, like at all. But what the executive branch can change is your designation as a platform...oh, sure Twitter and Facebutt and everyone else caught up will go to court, but fighting the loss of that platform designation, never mind being able to change the law, will cost these tech companies a fortune in legal fees. That is what they worry about.

Trump can't change the law, but the FCC and the FTC still decide who gets the designation, and they can play holy hell there. I think they lose in the end, but like someone said, the punishment is the process...

If OD is the case, then the democong establishment is slowwalking information that could could end the riots sooner.
Then again, if MPD doesn' want to deal with the source of the problem, i.e, democong traitors on the city council, that's on them. I know I would want to both fulfill my oath to defend the Constitution AND to preserve my job...hopefully, they figger it out.
