uspol, chaz shooting 

absolutely surreal to see the garbage mainline reporting on it. ex: theguardian.com/us-news/2020/j

> Officers said in a police blog that at about 3am on Monday, a white Jeep Cherokee SUV was reported near a Chop concrete barrier that surrounds the protest area. Several unidentified people then fired shots into the vehicle.

never mentioned that the folks driving the SUV opened fire first with automatic weaponry, in two drive-bys. activists are never quoted, only the police account is used.

this kind of bogus media serves as cover for the upcoming clearing of the CHAZ and the reclamation of the police precinct. it’s so bland and naked. absolutely headfucked.

@garbados this makes me sad :(

@garbados

seems to be a staple of the guardian's protests coverage

during the yellow jackets movement they were pushing very hard the french government's narrative that it was a fash uprising, which was complete nonsense, and easily disproven by any journo worth their salt

re: uspol, chaz shooting 

@emptyfortress yeah, they are pretty garbage!

@emptyfortress @garbados @grainloom the guardian has terrible analysis on social movements, and yet they are still the most grown up newspaper in the uk

@emptyfortress @garbados @grainloom terrible analysis, not only on social movements mind you...

@garbados well i emailed teh journalist about it. would it be better to email the editor?

re: uspol, chaz shooting 

@PsyChuan this is just their bias. i don't know what a reader can do about it. the money tells them it's a good bias, i guess.

re: uspol, chaz shooting 

@garbados probably, but it's at least worth a shot. doesn't cost anythin'.

@garbados they fucked around and found out

re: uspol, chaz shooting 

@aph0t1c the finding out will continue until the fucking around improves
