Ferguson, Missouri Aftermath: Social Media Makes Dead Tree Newspaper Pundits Obsolete



So, tonight the big story revealing the backward Red State nature of this section of flyover country involved rage over reporters getting arrested amid a militarized police (Mcdonald's) crackdown in embattled Ferguson, Missouri.

Never mind that the attempt to silence "journalists" only points out that most people get their news from their friends on the Internets.

To wit . . .

SOCIAL MEDIA INTERNETS GOODNESS HAS COMPLETELY BURNED DOWN THE PRINT MEDIA INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!!!

In the midst of all of this we learn that the soft touch of Steve Paul is soon to take the helm of The Star's editorial page. Insiders don't think much of this move ... Do people still check the op/ed page for anything but a good laugh (???) that is much easier to get via FB news feed. Meanwhile, this Missouri racial hot mess makes it abundantly clear that people have stopped relying on the paper for op/ed leadership a long time ago.

And the hot mess continues ... Video: Police fire tear gas on Ferguson protesters

Wild man, it is not good luck to wish death on people. Be careful with that stuff. It is more dangerous to the person who starts playing that game.

Twitter is not allowing #Ferguson onto the trending topics list, and Facebook is outright blocking the tag.

I agree fuck Glazer he coat tail rides on anybody dead or alive for media time so fuck him let him die and lets see who jumps up looking for attention when he is dead. Any bets on the fact he will be forgotten before your grass needs mowed again.

Craig is a good man, he could stop this Ferguson situation all by himself if he wanted to.

Holy shit I just smoked a bowl and listened to the Dead "Looks Like Rain" Madison Square Garden September 16, 1990 8 times in a row.

Weir just slays me every time on that song, although Jerry's "behind the beat" subtle interplay should not be overlooked.

Bear, seek your meds.

I thought you were pissed at Tony's censorship. Compulsions, just can't get a hold on them...?

Please, this stuff is all good fun.

Until it shows up in your neighborhood. That's why we need to keep control of our city and not let it turn into another STL!

STL is a dump. KC could be a dump.

I am going to go to hell and god hates me for even thinking this, but they do say celebrities die in 3's.....

I think it will be Lindsay Lohan.

She's doing that european thing and her never-do-well family is probably going to pick her clean like the vultures they are. The 27 club , but in her case she just turned 28 so technically its 27....

On thursday, anyone who is out is going to be going to the Sprint Center to see Santana rock the house, safe at the highly guarded P&L.

All the rubes are going to be shaking their fists in the air at a bunch of riot cops while they get gassed. animals.

Polar Bear said...

12:28 thanks for your concern.

Yes the Bear was pissed at the Down Under Taco until he realized, in a drunken stupor, Bear forgot to hit the "Post Your Comment" button.

Tony is still a douche bag, but a "Free Speech Douche Bag".

Jr. hand your dad another Jack.

Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

Of course IF they would of just let the Degenerate Looters continue to loot every business in that neighborhood, then the outcry would of been - why didn't they stop all this !!!
So, either way they can't win !
Seems to be a lotta young punk degenerate thugs who think they are "Entitled" to do this, anywhere, anytime, Young, like dripping wet behind the ears, and barely outta ma'ma's Diapers young , nobody in Society owes them a thing, at that age, 13 to 25, they've barely experienced life, still dripping wet behind the ears yet.
Yet their mentality and attitude is their owed something from anybody - typical thug mentality is the problem, why work when I can steal & rob !!!
