Perhaps you saw the dashcam video of Gulf Breeze, Fla., Police Sgt. Kerstan Tatro being dragged from a traffic stop over the weekend. When Tatro reached in to stop the driver from speeding away, she ran over his foot, and he suffered a compound arm fracture in the resulting fall. Gulf Breeze News warned, “This video may be disturbing to some viewers.”
“Disturbing” is an understatement. However, MSNBC found it funny, reposting a rant and tweeting, “Does it count as a police chase if you drag the cop along for the ride?” MSNBC later pulled the video, and said, “It should not have been posted, and we’re sorry.”
Another understatement, not to mention ironic, as MSNBC leads the way in labeling language “inappropriate” and/or “offensive.” However, their own ugly diatribes, failed programming and forced resignations haven’t gone unnoticed by viewers: Their ratings hit an all-time low in Q1 2015.
Hillary’s Litmus Test For Her Supreme Court Justices
In a private meeting with fundraisers, Hillary Clinton said she will only nominate justices for the U.S. Supreme Court who pledge to overturn the court’s 2010 Citizens United decision, which criminalized broadcast speech that advocated for candidates within arbitrary timeframes before elections.
In a case that overturned law barring the showing of a movie critical of Clinton, the justices specifically identified the National Rifle Association, along with the Sierra Club and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), as the targets of these campaign finance laws. Proponents had claimed that corporate money was “buying” elections, and severe constraints on associations like the NRA were necessary to restore fairness. However, in reality, billionaire donors and massive media conglomerates wanted the political playing field to themselves, and “campaign finance reform” enforced their monopolies with criminal sanctions.
Hillary’s justices would subject NRA members to her own form of justice.
