Two Quick Items That I’m Afraid I’ll Miss Noting If I Don’t Get Them Up Now….

No time to do a full potpourri, not ready for a full post, Spuds wants to go out and all hell is breaking out, and meanwhile, this Saturday seems even deader than usual, but still, ethics developments are ethics developments, soooooo…

1. Yoel Roth, Twitter’s head of Trust and Safety during what we are gradually learning was a full-bore effort to stifle opinions and information the Democrats and progressive community didn’t want to deal with, tweeted out things like this during the Trump administration:

Bias? What bias? Who wouldn’t trust someone like that to decide what’s “hate speech” and not fit for Twitters?

2. NBC News reported that “The Kremlin gave the White House the choice of either Griner or Whelan — or none.” Then, after the White House, Biden, Karine Jean-Pierre, and CNN said that the white ex-Marine being held in a Russian prison for four years already was never an option in trade for the deadly arms dealer, only the black, gay, anti-US “icon,” NBC quietly changed its website to match that narrative, changing the line to say, “the Kremlin ultimately gave the White House the choice of either Griner or no one after different options were proposed.”  (This is known as “stealth editing,” and is both unethical and suspicious).

NBC couldn’t slip it by, though, because people noticed, so hours later it added, “an earlier version of this article misstated the choice the Biden administration was given over hostages. It was to swap for Griner or no one, not a choice between Griner or Whelan.”

Of course, the Biden administration would never pressure NBC to assist  a White House PR cover-up, right? And even if it did, NBC, being an ethical and trustworthy journalistic organization, would never agree to do so, right? It’s just a coincidence that NBC News also suspended national correspondent Miguel Almaguer after he reported facts about the Paul Pelosi attack that didn’t follow the official pre-mid-term elections Democratic talking points and has never explained why, and Almaguer has been missing from the network ever since—right?

Seeing anything fishy or sinister in such conduct by a major news network is just wacko conspiracy stuff. Yes? Right?

  1. “Almaguer has been missing from the network ever since”

    Maybe he’s in the same place as the Paul Pelosi story, which also hasn’t been heard from since election day…
