New York Times Can’t Have It Both Ways, NYT Correctly Writes There is NO Immigrant CrimeWave (All Violent Crime At Near Record Lows) But NYT Incorrectly Implies American Public School Students at Great Risk of Getting Shot/Killed: NYT’s Commenter Gives The Correct Assessment

New York Times Can’t Have It Both Ways, NYT Correctly Writes There is NO Immigrant CrimeWave (All Violent Crime At Near Record Lows) But NYT Incorrectly Implies American Public School Students at Great Risk of Getting Shot/Killed: NYT’s Commenter Gives The Correct Assessment.

Quick facts, look up the FBI crime stats, murder rates at near record lows, in the 5 per 100,000 range, last time we were in the 5’s was roughly 1957 and we have close to 3 times more guns in the America of 2018 as compared to 1957.

The so called experts that I see appearing on CNN keep citing “gun deaths” when they know they are including suicide, a problem that needs to be improved but an entirely different problem than gun homicides.

In fact if you further break down the American homicide rate, the gun homicide rate is roughly between 2 and 3 people per 100,000. Most of the gun deaths sadly are in inner cities that are plagued by gangs and drug problems.

OK so back to the two articles written by the New York Times, both can’t be true, violent crime is at near record lows while American public school students have a legit fear of getting shot to death, the former is true as the NY Times wrote the article to correctly prove that immigrants are not causing some crazy crime wave:

Most areas experienced decreases in all types of violent crime. The change in assault rates ranged from a 34 percent decline to a 29 percent rise, while robbery rates declined in the range of 12 percent to 57 percent, and murder rates declined in the range of 15 percent to 54 percent.

This analysis is one of the most comprehensive longitudinal studies of the local immigrant-crime relationship. It spans decades of metropolitan area data, incorporating places with widely differing social, cultural and economic backgrounds, and a broad range of types of violent crime.

….

Immigrant populations in the United States have been growing fast for decades now. Crime in the same period, however, has moved in the opposite direction, with the national rate of violent crime today well below what it was in 1980.

Murder rates at 1957 levels, violent crime rates at near record lows in most American cities, so how could American public school students, many in leafy suburbs that have less than 1 per 100,000 murder by gun rates be in legit fear of getting shot and killed?

The answer, they fear it because of idiotic mass media coverage of school shootings and New York Times articles that write about their fears without writing the facts, FACT- Add up all the schools in America and then divide by the number of kids killed in mass shootings and you will find more people struck by lightning, but here is the NY Times serving an agenda and not serving journalism:

Shootings are so common that students talk in frighteningly practical terms about the location of doors and windows in their classrooms as risk factors. They calculate escape routes. And they ponder hiding spots in wide-open rooms.

A random New York Times commenter does a better job of analysis than a highly paid NY Times writer:

This is absolutely ridiculous. I am incensed by the stupidity.

Statistical fact: an American kid has a greater chance of being struck by lightning than being shot in school. (I calculated that using CDC and NOAA data from this decade.)

Stop all the hand-wringing over how some of the Texas kids were “not surprised” their school got shot up. Of course they weren’t surprised! That doesn’t mean their expectation is even remotely connected to statistical reality. They have a distorted, funhouse-terror view of the world, crafted by media like the NYT, which obsessively cover school shootings, and which help cause future shootings by offering glory to the perpetrators. (Let us not forget that the media makes money off these incidents.)

This fear and stupidity is a party-neutral phenomenon. If an Islamic terror attack happens somewhere in middle America, you could easily find some ignorant right-winger to interview who would say they weren’t at all surprised, that they had lived in fear of Islamic terror attacks before one happened in their town, and they knew it would happen there eventually. Of course, such fear of Islam is statistically ridiculous. Liberals have no trouble recognizing this irrationality in their political opponents — yet they exhibit the same irrational fear and obsession in their own feelings toward guns.

Everyone needs to get a grip. And the media need to halt their socially destructive practice of using these incidents as a profit opportunity.

Instead of complaining about spending money with the dry and boring Bill Simmons, buy the Knicks tickets and donate them to Knicks fans struggling with sickness or family tragedies.

MikeFrancesa.com believes this comment from the USA Today column:

I’m a waiter at an Atlantic City casino restaurant…Hawke came in one night at one of my tables…He had to be one of the biggest jerks, celeb or non-celeb I’ve ever waited on and I’ve been doing this for over 40 years all over the country and served some of the top celebrities, including past presidents…I refuse to watch any of his movies…he is one of those who thinks their s___ doesn’t stink…if he won’t go where he isn’t wanted he may have to stay home the rest of his life…that is, if they want him there!

….

Kara
I have several family members who are in the film business and Ethan Hawke has a well established reputation for being a complete tool–not based on hearsay but first hand accounts from relatives whose observations are trustworthy.

Wall Street Journal Article is Perfect Encapsulation of Feckless Media & Incompetent FBI in Investigation & Coverage of Florida Shooter, One WSJ Commenter Sums Up What True Common Sense is in one Comment Post

February 16th, 2018 · Comments Off

Wall Street Journal Article is Perfect Encapsulation of Feckless Media & Incompetent FBI in Investigation & Coverage of Florida Shooter, One WSJ Commenter Sums Up What True Common Sense is in one Comment Post.

The FBI might not have been able to prevent this Florida massacre but they at least could have tried, true that they probably have to deal with thousands of threats but in this instance ONE GOOGLE SEARCH would have revealed the true identity of the shooter whose name and pictures should not be promoted by MSNBC/FOX NEWS/CNN/DRUDGE and any other website that takes corporate advertisers.

But the media will never learn or care, all about clicks and viewers and dollars and cents but could at least one of those so called reporters ask the FBI special agent in charge why you did not have one FBI person conduct a simple google search on the Youtube username.

It is not about conspiracy, conspiracy theories are for fools, it is about how does the FBI not fire this special agent who appeared at the news conference and delivered a couple of BS lines about “database checks”, who wrote the script for this bumbling fool.

Instead of playing political games why doesn’t Congress do some real oversight on the agency whose budget they control and find out why the FBI does not know how to use Google, anyway a WSJ commenter sums it up perfectly:

No honest “expert” would provide such poor information. This is a sad example of embracing incompetence.

1. The YouTube comment is a very typical school shooting lead. Many, if not the majority of leads involving high risk youth come from social media and the internet exactly in this manner. These commenters are identified nearly every day by law enforcement.

2. Claiming a grand jury subpoena is needed is a lie. Agents have the power of subpoena. It is the single most basic step of any online investigation. A routine form is signed by an attorney and sent to the company. 1,000 of subpoenas are issued every day in the U.S. The most basic and minimal effort would have identified the YouTube comment poster.

3. Everyone else on earth was able to find this kid online in 30 seconds. The FBI has 1,000’s of people trained in open source investigations, social media investigations, doxing, etc. Claiming their hands were tied because the poster wasn’t in their databases is a lie. A database wasn’t even needed to identify the commenter for the rest of the world. Blaming “the database” is what an old, incompetent, lazy, investigator would do.

4. N***** C*** ISN’T even a common name. He also commented on a local business… which is a CLUE the poster is likely from that general area. Again, everyone else found this kid online no problem.

5. The tip went to the wrong incompetent person. So much so, that he apparrently didn’t even muster the energy to request assistance or share the tip with someone else capable of the most basic online investigation.

6. The bottom line is… MORE could’ve very easily been done… BUT… even so, it may not have prevented this incident. Sadly, we’ll never know for sure.

And the person who wrote this WSJ article should be fired as well.

Apple Pseudo-Male John Gruber Claims There is No Apple Ecosystem Lock In On the Apple TV, Someone Inform This Paid Media Arm of Apple That the Apple TV Still Has No Spotify or TuneIn App

February 5th, 2018 · Comments Off

Apple Pseudo-Male John Gruber Claims There is No Apple Ecosystem Lock In On the Apple TV, Someone Inform This Paid Media Arm of Apple That the Apple TV Still Has No Spotify or TuneIn App.

Here is the chief Apple propagandist John Gruberrrrr:

A lot of people are looking at HomePod’s exclusive first-class support for Apple Music and see selfish intent. Apple isn’t working with Spotify or other services because they want everyone to use Apple’s media ecosystem for everything, is the thinking. Maybe! But maybe HomePod only works with Apple Music for now. I don’t know, and Apple isn’t going to tell anyone.

But look at Apple TV. There’s still no “skinny bundle” from Apple itself but now you use Apple TV to watch YouTube’s TV package, Playstation’s, and I’m sure others. There’s certainly no lock-in to the Apple media ecosystem on Apple TV. I think a lot of this is just a big complicated mess behind the scenes.

Hey Gruber, the only mess is located in your Apple addled brain, they are a company not your significant other, they have had years to offer Spotify/TuneIn and other music streaming apps that are rivals to Apple Music on their Apple TV, why do you think they have not?

This is why both the Apple TV and the Apple Homepod are $ inflated pieces of garbage.

Directv’s New GUI a Disaster, Fade/Shade Covering Bottom of Screen When Using DVR Progress Bar Features & Small/Unreadable Fonts Throughout General User Interface Especially Harming the Guide and Playlist, Reports of Thousands of Subscribers Cancelling Service.

Directv’s New GUI a Disaster, Fade/Shade Covering Bottom of Screen When Using DVR Progress Bar Features & Small/Unreadable Fonts Throughout General User Interface Especially Harming the Guide and Playlist, Reports of Thousands of Subscribers Cancelling Service.

Will AT&T/Directv prevent the loss of more subscribers by changing the GUI to a more functional and pleasant experience for those who actually watch TV?

If they don’t the stock price will start to sink.

Directv's New GUI a Disaster, Fade/Shade Covering Bottom of Screen When Using DVR Progress Bar Features & Small/Unreadable Fonts Throughout General User Interface Especially Harming the Guide and Playlist, Reports of Thousands of Subscribers Cancelling Service.

The Directv/ATT&T team of designers describe the above progress bar this way:

On Live TV, the Rewind/Fast Forward bar looks visually different than the old trick-play bar. The functionality remains unchanged.

It sure does look different, this progress bar or Rewind/Fast Forward Bar is surrounded by a dark/black Fade/Shade that covers 1/3 of the lower screen.

Whenever one hits play/pause/fast forward, sports scores and time remaining is blocked, one can’t see news headlines or stock tickers.

Does Directv realize their product is designed for people to see the entire screen?

Furthermore the Directv NOW DVR Beta App has a 100 percent clear progress bar, so why can’t Directv make a simple fix and get rid of the Fade/Shade on the sat version of the Directv progress bar?

If this remains unfixed, MikeFrancesa.com is leaving Directv.

WABC Radio Host John Batchelor Ruins His Reputation By Putting Snake Oil Scam Diet Doctor Arthur Turovets On as Regular Guest Without Disclosing Advertising Relationship as Turovets Pays WABC/Batchelor For Ads on Batchelor’s Show for his Scientifically Unproven NJ Diet and its Misleading Diet Claims.

WABC Radio Host John Batchelor Ruins His Reputation By Putting Snake Oil Scam Diet Doctor Arthur Turovets On as Regular Guest Without Disclosing Advertising Relationship as Turovets Pays WABC/Batchelor For Ads on Batchelor’s Show for his Scientifically Unproven NJ Diet (Formerly Known as Nuvo Fat Loss) and its Misleading Diet Claims.

Sad that Batchelor joins the ranks of Hannity, Michael Savage, and other prominent conservative talk radio hosts in their wanton disregard for their audience through promoting companies and individuals that seek to defraud the general public with their snake oil medicine and fraudulent financial schemes.

What is it with these conservative radio hosts, anyone remember Sean Hannity and his good buddy the quack Dr. Eric Braverman?

Memo to Batchelor: Ethical rule #1 - Always reveal your financial relationship with your on air guests.

Instead Batchelor tried to hide a 3am cable tv infomercial in the guise of a legit news segment covering a doctor with an alleged ground breaking diet.

The so called doctor Arthur Turovets was making repeated scientifically unproven claims and declaring them as fact. Science has not proven that blood/DNA tests can magically provide a doctor with a tailor made diet. Turovets claimed his diet would turn your body into a fat consuming machine and it would totally eliminate any junk food cravings or any cravings at all.

The claims went on and on while John Batchelor marveled and gushed and pointed to the testimonials on Turovets website.

Historically Batchelor has run a down the middle talk radio show with 85 percent of his guests as pure journalists, only 10 to 15 percent of his guests have been dubious fringe personalities with checkered pasts, the current one being Stephen Cohen who praises everything Russian President Vladimir Putin does while critiquing everything America does, no leader is 100 percent. But that is another story, with this snake oil in guest subterfuge, John Batchelor may have jumped the shark and waded into a Trump like swamp.

Update: MikeFrancesa.com has found no evidence that Arthur Turovets is a Doctor. The degree that Turovets claims is of a Chiropractor which makes him a licensed practitioner, not a doctor, more false advertising.
