I tried to think of common denominators between the Covington story and the Jussie Smollett story and I found one.
Media. Yeah, I know typical. But the story of fake media doing what they do is a little deeper. The MSM does it for reaction, yes, but to illicit instant reaction.
They want an immediate reaction to their coverage. I think that is their entire angle. Their whole fake news model depends on their need of an instinctive response without delay, making people nothing more than their puppets.
I don’t think they want people to think about it, just react as soon as they see it. Like Ferguson or countless others. They are the clickbators of news. We used to call it sensationalizing but it is worse, they want instant response. So they can always count on it from the left. No thinking needed; just pure emotional reaction.
