#BlackLivesDontMatter When A Gorilla Gets Shot

unnamed (1)

When the Lame Stream Media (ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC) covers the death of a Gorilla as if it were the death of someone rich and famous I don’t want to hear about #BlackLivesMatter. In reality #BlackLivesDontMatter. Especially those black lives snuffed out by abortion and those getting gunned down in cities like Chicago.

As Newsbusters reports, 69 citizens were shot across Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago over the long Memorial Day weekend, but the broadcast networks instead focused like a laser on the death of Harambe, the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla who manhandled — animal-handled? — a toddler who fell into the gorilla habitat.

Harambe was shot on Saturday by the Zoo’s Dangerous Animal Response Team after it was determined that it was the only way to guarantee the boy’s safety. There followed a perfect storm of social media outrage and news media obsession about the regrettable but necessary killing.

Newsbusters notes that ABC, CBS and NBC spent 54 times more coverage — a total of 55 minutes and 7 seconds — on the Harambe incident (which sounds like a Robert Ludlum novel) than they did on the Chicago shootings — 1 minute, 1 second of reportage — which also included deaths.

Some examples:

ABC anchor Amy Robach announced the “zoo horror” during Good Morning America on Monday while NBC fill-in anchor Thomas Roberts focused on the “fast and furious reactions” to the gorilla’s death during Nightly News that same day.

CBS correspondent Jamie Yuccas described PETA’s statement “saying the gorilla enclosure should have been surrounded by a secondary barrier” and the uproar by animal activists during Weekend News on Sunday.  Anchor Elaine Quijano concluded that segment by commenting on the “terrifying images.”

ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS’ Weekend News split the one minute of coverage about the “weekend of gun violence”; NBC didn’t cover it at all.

Way to keep us informed about what really matters, mainstream media.

  1. Thanks for the update on how the news media is only interested in a gorilla that had to die to safely rescue a kid!! But seriously we are STILL talking about this one story….as if nothing else is going on. Why don’t they cover how Black Lives Matter yelled white privelege even though the child was black!! Why don’t they cover HOW MANY murders of PEOPLE were murdered in ANTI GUN Chicago?? Better yet why don’t they cover How PlNned Parenthood broke HIPAA laws over 5 years while profitting off of aborted baby parts?? The Lame Stream Media is just that…LAME!!!!
