Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

MSM 'til the day they die: Morning after Casey Anthony murder acquittal, NY Times gives column one to illegal aliens from Mexico -who AREN'T here!

Above, Wednesday morning's New York Times was a picture of a newspaper that couldn't help itself from engaging in the worst (dumbest) sort of faux high-minded editorial judgment.

Where we set our scene: the Panera Bread location in Hallandale Beach, south of The Duo condo towers, right next to the Diplomat Country Club.
(Yes, as in the great Diplomat LAC battle of last year, which we won.)

Mainstream Media 'til the day they die...
So am I the only person in the country that noticed that the morning after the Casey Anthony murder acquittal, the N.Y. Times gives column one over to a story about illegal aliens from Mexico -who AREN'T even HERE?

It's like the Times has a Black fraternity insignia burned into their shoulders like... -well, you know who you are out there- and can't see that their loyalty to the group over the larger society as a whole must have some logical limits.
But no...
Mainstream Media 'til the day they die...

Let this be a self-evident lesson to those of you who have scoffed in the past when well-known conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and others have tweaked the MSM's patronizing and self-absorbed missing-the-trees-for-the-forest/liberal nature by saying what the prospective headlines might be in the N.Y. Times following various catastrophes.

Something along the lines of, well, say,
"Species-killer asteroid crashes into North Atlantic creating deadly tsunamis; poor and minorities will be especially hard-hit say experts."

This is something that American conservatives have been saying with various variations since William Buckley's "Firing Line" TV show was a staple of PBS and one of the very few overtly conservative outlets in American media.

The N.Y. Times article in column one that I have referenced above has one title in print and another one online.

The print version that you see for yourself above reads:
Better Lives for Mexicans Cut Allure of Going North
Shifts in Jobs and Education Are Cited in Decline of Illegal Traffic to U.S.

Online, it's...

Changes in Mexico Slow Illegal Immigration to U.S.

In case you were wondering, yes, I AM going to be highlighting the Miami Herald's perfectly awful coverage of the Casey Anthony trial in Orlando and how poorly-served South Florida was served by the largest newspaper in the country's fourth largest state.

In particular, the Herald's very curious (questionable) choices of where to run the stories they deigned to run -when they ran any- and almost always without any photos of any kind.

Given the abysmal daily coverage thru the forty-something day trial, you'd almost think that
a.) Miami wasn't in the same state as Orlando, and that,
b.) the Herald's management just wished the Casey Anthony story would go away.

Yes, just more of what I have been complaining about in this space for years with regard to the self-evident and dramatic decline of Herald management and reporting in far-too-many areas.

That essay of mine will be here before you know it, and as I always remind you here, nothing quite says neglect like evidence, especially photographic proof of that neglect.
