THE LEFT DOESN’T OPPOSE POLITICAL VIOLENCE, IT JUST WANTS A MONOPOLY ON IT: The Nation does its best to whitewash leftist violence in Georgia. “Consider this the third in a series of stories about left wing news outlets doing their best to spin the bad news out of Georgia about an environmental activist who shot a state trooper and who was then shot and killed by police. My first story on this topic takes a look at the shoddy coverage by Vice, The Daily Show and Truthout. I wrote the follow-up story Monday which looked at another similar story published by Teen Vogue. Today, there‚Äôs a new entry at the Nation written by Michael Gould-Wartofsky. What all of these stories have in common is that they make a concerted effort to not mention the inconvenient facts about what happened in the forest outside of Atlanta. In this case, the story just skips over the fact that someone else was shot.”
