New York 8/23/18–Columbia University Journalism Dept. has trained many prominent journalists and TV news commentators. They publish a newsletter that examines how national stories are handled. It is titled, Columbia Journalism Review (CJR) for which this writer is a subscriber.

Editor/writer of CJR, Pete Vernon, released a story today with the headline:The Media Today: How Trump Turned Mollie Tibbett’s Murder into a National Story. How’s that again? President Donald Trump manipulated that tragedy into a national story?

Then this jab below the belt by Mr. Vernon to explain this event using a tail wagging the dog scenario to misdirect people from the actual story.

Sayeth he;  “As the fallout from the guilty plea of longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and the conviction of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort continued to lead most national news outlets, the White House attempted to turn the focus to Iowa, where the girl lived.”

Notice how skillfully Mr. Vernon brought in two of Trump’s former associates who had been convicted of nefarious conduct to make President Trump look bad (by the company he keeps). And Vernon wove the web to cover Trump as well to make him a party to malfeasance, getting eyes off the girl’s murder by an illegal.

This illegal immigrant, who had no business being in this country, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, grabbed Mollie Tibbetts while she was jogging, yanked her off the trail and brutally murdered her. She had nothing to do with him and was minding her own business.

The following was written by Mr. Vernon. Notice the negative slant:

This fueled the immigration debate turning the story into political football. The New York Times charged that the Tibbetts murder has been used by Trump and covered in conservative media.

Reporter Alan Gomez described this as a conservative media frenzy that erroneously casts immigrants as dangerous while attempting to provide “concrete evidence” that “immigrants commit fewer crimes than native born Americans.” What???

USA’s Alan Gomez should take a little time in research for stats, as this writer has done. In the last 10 years, 44,000 Americans have been killed by illegals. Today there are 24 citizens killed EACH DAY BY ILLEGALS according to Google stats.

I wrote the following email to the editor of this piece, Pete Vernon.

Your story of the illegal who killed the Iowa girl is a classic example as to how the media SLANTS stories to make President Trump, who was put into office by millions of voters, look bad. And it was a stretch so blatant that even the least experienced journalist could detect it.

As an active journalist I am ashamed of what the political newspapers today have done to an otherwise honorable profession in order to push a personal political point which is a blatant conflict of interest.  This should come under malpractice.

This piece is so telling that I plan to do a feature on it.

A most gracious email was sent to me in response by the editor:

Hi Rev. Miles,

Thanks for taking the time to write. I’m unclear what part of the newsletter you found factually incorrect? Happy to discuss, but I can’t tell what you’re objecting to.

Best,

Pete

I think it is clear about what my objections are to the way the story was written by the piece I wrote in response. It is filled with innuendo and assumption. And again, I very much appreciate the gracious response Mr. Vernon sent me.

He did  state that President Trump’s “hard-line immigration stance” is grounded in, now get this, THE FALSE BELIEF that undocumented immigrants represent a clear and present danger to American Citizens.

False belief?  Perhaps it would be worthwhile to take a trip to the morgue in Brooklyn, Iowa and look at the body of 20 year old, Mollie Tibbets, and then rethink that “false belief.”
