Should you be apprised of this fact?: On Sunday afternoon, 20-year-old Daunte Wright was shot and killed, apparently by mistake, apparently as he tried to resist and flee from arrest.
On today's Morning Joe, discussions of this tragic event struck us as nearly insane. As is now almost always done, major stars were supplying our spotless minds with the simplest possible account of this tragic event.
Just for the record, why was Wright being arrested? According to the Associated Press, this fact is part of the story:
IBRAHIM AND HOUSEHOLDER (4/13/21): Court records show Wright was being sought after failing to appear in court on charges that he fled from officers and possessed a gun without a permit during an encounter with Minneapolis police in June.
According to the AP, Wright had an outstanding warrant on an earlier gun and fleeing charge. Is that something we should be told when Our Town's favorite "journalists" pretend to discuss what happened?
Taking a quick perusal, the New York Times included this fact in this morning's news report. The Washington Post washed this fact away.
On Morning Joe, the usual suspects were aggressively fashioning the Most Spotless Possible Story. This is what these high-level idiots do with every such event now.
It's what the scrubs do over on Fox. It's what they do in Our Town.
Anthropologists say that we're wired this way. Across the ocean, Vladimir Putin is enjoying another big win.
