Indianapolis, IN – In light of recent shootings over the past weekend in which American citizens were the targets, one has to wonder why these two particular shootings receive so much media coverage when other shootings don’t get the same amount of attention? What was so different about El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, from St. Louis, Missouri or Baltimore, Maryland? Is this something the mainstream media avoids covering? Is this something which doesn’t fit the mainstream media’s agenda or narrative? Or could it be that these cities have been, and continue to be, Democratic strongholds? Could it be that the mainstream media knows they are not to touch the topic of gun violence in these cities? The old adage “you don’t bite the hand that feeds you” could apply. I’ve posted a list of news articles below, all of which occurred in the same news cycle as the recent weekend shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

After reading through article after article, it begs the question: what is the glaringly obvious, underlying truth? Could it be that all are Democratic strongholds? Could this be why the mainstream media won’t give national attention, or scant attention, to any tragic event if it occurs in a city held by Democrats?

An earlier quote from President Donald Trump still rings true as we begin the campaign for his re-election bid for 2020, “Vote for Trump! What the hell do you have to lose?”
