Why was Jussie Smollets fake hate crime a bigger news story than an actual police officer being murdered at the Capitol today?
And I'm talking about the two or three days when the media (and a lot of dumb people) believed a black guy was attacked in Chicago at 3am by dudes in MAGA hats. 24/7 coverage with panels and all the social media hashtags and emotional signaling.
Not nearly the coverage as Brian Sicknick either. This won't be in the news at all by Sunday. Half staff flag, yes. Statement by Biden written by staff, yes. But no one will speak on the ideology or motivation.
