Howie Kurtz: Why Should The Media Care That Spree-Killer Chris Dorner Is a Huge, Huge Fan of Ours?

First of all, I'm sure you already know this (and I think cobloggers covered this already), but the media is actually deleting the parts of the manifesto that praise them.

Howard Kurtz asked, should we care about Chris Dorner's love of CNN and MSNBC hosts?

But notice that question contains no context -- the context being that the media has always treated it as supremely consequential that a murderous lunatic was a big fan of Sarah Palin. (Even when, in fact, Lougner wasn't a fan of Sarah Palin -- something the NYT has now eradicated from the record, obliterating its previous claims that Palin inspired Loughner, without acknowledging the correction and retraction.)

Now, if you just ask someone, "Does it matter if Chris Dorner, a kill-crazy maniac, was a big fan of CNN and MSNBC?," their natural reaction will be "No, of course not; what does it matter whom he watches on TV, and what does it matter from whom he takes his political cues? Politics has nothing to do with murder."

That's what a normal, reasonable, level-headed person would say. But that's not how the media has played such coverage for the past four years.

The media, of course, has attempted to claim that virtually every notorious killer of the past few years is a Tea Partier or has some connection to the right.

Now, if Howard Kurtz was asking the question properly, he'd ask, Should the media care if Dorner is a huge fan of liberal reporters, given the fact that these same liberal reporters have attempted to claim that other murders were the responsibility of commentators on the right??

Now, when you ask it that way, the reasonable normal viewer says, "Well, of course then they should take an interest; the same rule should be applied equally to all parties. And if it's a dumb rule, then the entire rule should be discarded, not just selectively applied against people in the opposite party as CNN and MSNBC."

But, because asking it that way would provoke that answer, Howard Kurtz, "media critic," doesn't ask it that way.

More: Chris Dorner's fan club continues expanding.

I am trying to find out now if a CNN host actually returned Chris Dorner's praise right back to him.

Popehat is a guy who's very suspicious of police -- he keeps up with all the stories of police abuse and corruption, so he understands what most of us miss, that is, yes, there really are some very very bad apples in the police.

So what's his position on Chris Dorner?

Well, he has a common-sense position: Given that this guy is a lunatic who's murdering the children of alleged "enemies," maybe people shouldn't go assuming his claims of persecution are true.

Pretty much every maniac who shoots up an office after a firing claims he was poorly treated by management and the Victim of Conspiracies So Vast as to Beggar the Imagination.

But reasonable people don't assume their blood-soaked Letters of Complaint are true.

And yet... some people really seem to be jumping on the Chris Dorner, Hero bandwagon.

Posted by: Invictus at February 08, 2013 07:18 PM (OQpzc)

He was a cop so he was in a boat unit which is where cop types often hang out in the reserves. When they are called up, like he was, he was probably in a security force. Pretty run of the mill stuff.

95 re: depends on how unhinged the rhetoric is

Or how "stripped of its sentimental veil" it is.

Politics is forcing people to live under a will that's not their own--and exiling, imprisoning, or killing them if they resist. Recognizing that brings some narcissistic types who find themselves on the wrong end of others' will to try to fix shit. That was the Norwegian guy's trip. It's a mistake.

This ex-cop guy seems analogous. Where Norway dude felt His People were being forced, cop dude got personally forced (or at least believes he did), and he's grudgy about it. Norway guy reasoned that His People's fight was world-historical. Cop guy's is tiny, and he's pasted a political/cultural/etc. miscellany over it, to give it extra-personal meaning he knows (really) it doesn't have.

But basically, same deal...I think.

All true, but you probably overstate their strength which makes it even worse. We just had a campaign where a liberal got re-elected with things stuck in shit, and he mostly did it by ignoring the political press and instead going on entertainment outlets and radio shows. He offered zero in terms of ideas.

These spinmasters don't help, but the real problem is our voters don't really want to be bothered with anything beyond the superficial.

But until we can prove that they are NOT tied to conservatives, tea parties, or a Palin, then it is our moral and constitutional obligation as honest and fact driven reporters to not only assume they are, but to push the meme that this deranged individual is politically motivated and communicates with conservatives, tea partiers and several members of the Palin family to get his or her mayhem marching orders.

You see Sarah Palin is not only stupid and irrelevant, she is an evil genious that manipulates the minds of these deranged individuals and has hijacked the conservatives and turned normal bitter clingers into tea party radical home grown terrorists that will most likely one day shoot you and your kids. This evil diabolical woman, and her tea party cult which is really just devil worship and KKK must be isolated, ridiculed, mocked, blamed, pilloried, harassed, defamed, blamed, sued, suppressed, confined, humiliated, eradicated and wiped off the face of the earth!

I regard the entertainment industry as an important component of the liberal media. They mock and malign our positions and our ideas, and they create false portrayals of reality with which to confound the low information voters.

I am utterly convinced that were all of the media (and entertainment industry) bile focused on the Democrats, they could not possibly win an election. The media constitutes the only way of passing information to the most low information voters, and they explicitly run interference on all of our attempts to inform them.

Still there with a no-fly corridor for access that runs up the middle of the FL peninsula. The place should be heavy with military security.

If the Republicans were VICIOUS like the Democrats, they would be suing these people for providing illegal campaign contributions to the Democrats. The equivalent of that kind of publicity would cost millions to create.

While we are on this topic, I don't think the founders ever considered the possibility that people would be using high tech speech weapons. Their Freedom of Speech should be restricted to only such speech weapons as were available in 1787. Public Oratory, Pen and Paper, and the Printing Press.

No one needs such sophisticated assault speech weapons as Television and mass Satellite transmission systems. </sarc off>

Exactly. If we were vicious, we would be suing them for not providing equal time, and suing them for intentionally discriminating against conservatives in their hiring practices.

Shove some affirmative action down their throats and ask them how it tastes now?

Same exact comment from a friend's idiot 19 year old cousin while we were playing cards 4 years ago. He didn't know that wasn't actually said either.

193 Allthe web sites I hit today had a lot of loons that were defending him, a lot of them appeared to be the same race. No shame even when it was pointed out that in his manifesto it was clear he was an aggrieved bigot.Meh, I hope they find him in a cabin and burn it to the ground. The last thing this country needs is another Simpson trial.

The second half of Dorner's "manifesto" is a long love letter most
of all to OBAMA, about how everybody should respect him and listen to him. So
why isn't Obama issuing a public message to this guy, saying:



"If you really admire me and want to respect me, then you will stop
murdering people and turn yourself in. To ANYONE who claims to care what I
think, if you get into difficult circumstances, do NOT resort to violent
revenge against those who you think have wronged you, or their families. Such
behavior is antithetical to society, which is defined by the renunciation of
private retribution. Only society can deprive life or liberty, as adjudicated
by the rule of law, or else there is only tyranny, and Dorner's private tyranny
is as evil as that of Stalin or Mao or Castro or Chavez or Ahmadinijad or
Morsi. Murdering those who one recklessly imagines to be responsible for one's
hardship is a violation of the most basic laws of every religion. It is EVIL,
and it must stop. Dornan claims he is acting to clear his name, but his name is
now ranks indelibly with the dirtiest in human history. Only one bit of
mitigation remains, to demonstrate that he is not COMPLETELY evil, and that is
to lay down his arms and turn himself in."

Okay, no need to go on and on like that. But faced with a still-on-the-hunt
spree killer who is a self declared admirer, how can Obama NOT call him to stop
the killing? What other president would fail to avail himself of such an
obvious opportunity to reject the particular form of inspiration that this
self-declared admirer is taking from his admired? And no media person even asks
Obama what he thinks this admirer's actions?
They don't even throw him this softball because they it can't quite match the
softness of no ball at all, and Obama also seems to prefer that cover-up to
making a simple assertion that this is not how those how admire him should act.
Disgusting beyond belief.

If some spree shooter really did announce Sara Palin as his political hero,
can anyone imagine her remaining silent as we went about his killing spree? The
moral perversity of Obama is bottomless.

202 Dorner is a total narcissist. I'm sure he experienced "unfairness" at the LAPD like all people who work for the government experience, but that's life and he's blown it all out of proportion. Guess the Navy was guilty too and all his schools and his ex-wife who divorced him after a few months.

He couldn't do what he wanted all the time and punch out anyone who looked crossways at him, so...let's kill some innocent people!

That's so totally leftist. He's a maverick! So he can do whatever he wants!

203 I saw a headline on Yahoo that read "Cop killer a fan of Tebow" or something of the sort. They went on to say that the killer mentioned all sorts of other athletes and celebrities in his rambling manifesto, but the only one that was focused on by Yahoo was Tebow. Why would that be?

Posted by: BigDaddyD at February 09, 2013 04:47 AM (S4N/h)

204 The LAPD is filled with racists, bullies and thugs under the command of supervisors who shield and protect them. The lowlifes get promoted while whistleblowers like Dorner arerun off.Hear about the two Torrance cops who shot into a pickup that resembled one owned by Dorner? Two women inside were hit. Proves what reckless morons they are. As if they give a damn about innocent lives.The cops themselves are terrorists. It's about time they learned what it's like to be terrorized themselves.
