Update: Monster Shock Alert
This Monster Alert is to tell others that information news feeds are
very tenuous these days. I was told that newspapers subscribe to a
"news cable" or news feed, such as Associated Press (AP). In Hawaii,
take a look at the source of news: McClatchy, AP, New York Times,
Washington Post, etc.
Maui News has had some of the worse "feeds" from AP in the past
couple of years. The other day, I read an AP article that sounds like
there is another AP news feed with a sense of urgency and direction
in the way language is used in the article.
The Onion on twitter had a shocking feed the other day . . . it was a
feed saying that a prime time anchor journalist on broadcast television
needed to "decompress" his racist feelings by using the "n" word over
and over before going on television news so that he would accident-
ally say it on air. I tried to say that the "n" word should only be used
by those of this background just like the "j" word. I said this to the
national desk at the Washington Post the other night.
Why would the Onion use such slanderous info about a known guy
who does not represent such feelings? For shame. The Onion did a
piece on US AG Eric Holder being incompetent last year. Now that
was not slander, it was a statement of fact even if the article made
up a story about him not knowing what a crime was.
Remember, Holder is the guy that tried to show leniency for illegal
marijuana offenders AT THE SAME TIME that they were building a
California campaign to make recreational marijuana legal AT THE
SAME TIME the medical marijuana system was infiltrated by illegal
drug trade that supported terror financing.
Now nobody wants to talk about it. Maui wants to talk about what
happened at the Banana Bungalow between 2004-07 when Yukie was
making repeated taped statements with MPD about illegal drug trade
in this 'hood and trying to get them to visit the neighborhood to talk
with residents and former police officers.
