Media dodginess: Didn't immediately respond
NBC News reports on the “fatal shooting of a California business owner, allegedly for displaying a Pride flag at her shop”, linking the murder to critics of the flag such as Chaya Raichik, and including a comment from a trans activist that people like Raichik “have blood on their hands for inciting violence against the community”. Source.
The real ‘okay then’ moment however is not even the casual linking of one person’s opinion with another person’s heinous crime, but NBC News’ inclusion: “Walsh, Raichik and Fox News didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.” Perhaps a necessary evolution of the old “didn’t respond by publication”. Raichik did respond, however it was indeed not within a millisecond of being contacted by NBC News, and she shared the relevant screenshots on Twitter/X, apparently leading to NBC News altering their article.

Extra: Expect to see a lot more of that in this new age in which we live (along with incredibly biased 2-sentence headlines and references to sources that are irrelevant or anonymous). Thank goodness for screenshots and web archives. Makes it easier to expose the deceit and biases of the mainstream media and the approved experts. Like that time the CDC quietly altered their website after originally including the misinformation: “The mRNA and the spike protein [from the COVID-19 vaccines] do not last long in the body.”
