If the media are going to keep wailing about how vital a free press is, could they start reporting stuff?

There's a remarkable number of dangling facts about Stephen Paddock's mass murder in Las Vegas, which the media have shown little inclination to investigate. It's almost as if they're worried that too much investigation will ruin it.

For example:

Who was the woman shouting, "YOU'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!" right before the concert? Is any reporter interested in finding out? Probably a random crazy lady, but that's not typical pre-concert behavior.

Why is it taking so long to find out if anyone else went into Paddock's hotel room since he checked in last Thursday? I'm perfectly prepared to accept that he was the only one who entered that room, but can we see the surveillance video?

The sum-total of the information we know about Marilou Danley, the woman who's been living with Paddock for years is the following: She was out of the country at the time of the attack. She's not involved.

Paddock had apparently assembled an enormous arsenal of weapons. Did she know about it? Did he tell her why? Had his behavior changed recently? Why wasn't he with her on her trip? Had they broken up? And why did Paddock recently wire $100,000 to the Philippines?

Within hours of the first indictments in the Duke lacrosse case -- later, all thrown out -- the media was bristling with information about the players' parents, the homes they grew up in, the ritziness of their neighborhoods, and the tuition at their Catholic high schools. Doesn't any reporter want to ask Danley anything?

Do we know yet why Paddock broke two windows? What were his recent winnings or losses at gambling?

I don't know if any of this would change the basic narrative. But the media don't know, either, and they seem strangely reluctant to ask. As Sherlock Holmes said: First, you exclude the impossible, and whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. Our media isn't doing the reporting that would allow us to exclude anything. And then they wonder why conspiracy theories develop.

The media's idea of hard-hitting investigative reporting is to taunt gun-owners and white men. Making snarky political remarks is Job No. 1 of reporters. Apparently, it's also the new job description for late-night comics. As long as we're looking for jobs that Americans just won't do, maybe we could find some immigrants to tell jokes and report news.

We're getting a lot of smirky, celebratory headlines, like these:

AMERICA'S WHITE MAN PROBLEM

HOW AMERICA HAS SILENTLY ACCEPTED THE RAGE OF WHITE MEN

THE WHITE PRIVILEGE OF THE "LONE WOLF" SHOOTER

While it's great that liberals have finally found a mass murder that they don't think can be defeated with a "Je Suis Charlie" hashtag, they're either lying or they don't know what they're talking about. Blacks and Hispanics are extremely well-represented as perpetrators of mass shootings, Muslims are over-represented, and surprisingly, even the usually law-abiding Asians more than hold their own.

Typical Reporter: Yeah, we decided not to go with the mass shootings at the Tennessee church, the Washington Navy Yard, San Bernardino, the Pulse nightclub, Fort Hood, the LIRR, the Carson City IHOP, the Trolley Square Shopping Mall, the Windy City Core Supply warehouse, Virginia Tech, the Binghamton Civic Center, the Hartford Distributors, the hunting tract in Wisconsin, the Appalachian School of Law … and on and on and on.

And those are just a few of the famous ones! It's hard to notice what's not there, so it's especially annoying that the journalist's method of illustrating mass murderers is to assemble pictures of all the mass shooters, but then only show the white guys.

There was one characteristic of white men in abundant evidence at the Las Vegas massacre. They're awfully chivalrous, these white male country music fans. Twenty-two thousand people came under sustained, high-powered gunfire and few people, if any, were stomped to death -- something you can't say for a Black Friday sale at a Long Island mall.

At the Las Vegas concert, men died protecting women, using their bodies as shields and standing up in the middle of gunfire to direct the women to safety. The New York Post reports that one woman said she "was running away and a couple of guys said, 'Hey, come stand behind us,' and boom, they went down.” Heather Melton has described how she felt her husband, Sonny, being shot in the back, fatally, as he shielded her from the rain of bullets.


Without many facts to go on, the only sweeping conclusion we can make so far is that there's a reason feminism didn't emerge from the country music community.

Ann was quite for a day, got me worried...
and want to add something to Ann's points. Do a simple math, how many bluets can one person shoot in, as they say in 9 min? Considering that half of the bullets will not hit anyone, and one needs time to reload (as in the videos.)

In mass murder cases the police never release the motive because they do not want to start wars between various groups. On the other hand the MSM always blames conservatives if in any way they can. In the recent Las Vegas mass murder the MSM is not blaming Trumpism, so we can conclude as much as the MSM would love to blame Trumpism they can't.
To determine what the motive of the a-hole/democrat shooter was all we half to do is look at who were the victims. The victims were supporters of retro thinking now commonly called Trumpism.  So we can conclude in the shooter/a-hole/democrats mind he was under direct orders from the woman that almost became president crooked Hillary to murder people that Hillary thinks are deplorable. White trump supports at a country music concert.
The shooter/a-hole/democrats motive was to kill Trump supporters.

When Progressives advocate gun control they set a straw man by talking about America's very high homicide rate. They bias the debate by limiting the comparisons to a few carefully chosen countries. In the question Is there something in the US DNA that promotes violence they demand that only those few countries can be discussed.
If we look at the UN for data we find that US does not have the highest homicide rate. We find that some 93 countries have higher homicide rates than the US. The highest, Honduras, has a homicide rate of 90.4 per hundred thousand (all numbers from UN Office of Drugs and Crime, 2012 figures). This is almost 20 times the US rate of 4.7. Some 22 countries have rates 4 times as high including Mexico with 21.5. Some 57 countries have rates more than twice as high as the US. The “horrific” US homicide rates start to look a lot different when put into perspective with the rest of the world where the average homicide rate is 8.6, over twice the US rate.

secondly they argue that the US is homogeneous with uniform homicide rates. In truth America has an inner city homicide problem in Democrat controlled cities. The majority of US homicides are generated by lower class blacks and Hispanics so the cause must be looked for where the problem is not in the general population where the problem isn't
