David Cannon seems to be auditioning for Tucker Carlson’s job — that is, if he gets too outrageous for even Fox News. “The news says” seems to be his favorite innuendo this time, without quoting which news service or any details whatsoever. Then he follows that up with his chosen facts to refute what “the news says.”
“When liberals were asked” about the rate of killings by police is another great one, implying that liberals are so out of touch with reality that they haven’t a clue what the information might really be. I could find no poll that asked that question to liberals or anyone else, so please share where you got that gem.
Hunter Biden’s laptop contents are “pretty damning.” Well, that really nails it down, right? The government is looking at his laptop regarding what may be a tax problem, not child porn.
In general, “The News Says,” or reports, what they are told by various sources, including government officials, in which case, most sources were stating that it seemed unlikely that the coronavirus came from a lab. That is getting a harder look now and the news is reporting that fact.
While I have, in the past many weeks, challenged Cannon’s opinions on these pages, he has never come back to defend them. He just goes on to more opinions, bundled up in “the news says,” with no more specifics than that. I’m not sure where he gets his news but I can make an educated guess.
I’m pretty sure he is spot on in saying that very few of the 14,000+ deaths from guns each year are from AR-15s but that passes right over the fact that there are 14,000+ deaths from guns each year; mostly from suicide, by the way.
I almost forgot: While Black people are 13 percent of the population, 28 percent of people killed by police are black. They are six times more likely to be killed by police then white people and hispanics are three times more likely.
If you’re going to keep quoting “The News Says,” it would be nice to hear what news. Just sayin’.
