In between writing my daily diatribes, I glanced at Twitter and saw the latest thing Media Matters was complaining about. Surprising no one, the leftist group was attempting to tell the people who still took it seriously that Fox News was doing a bad thing.
What was the bad thing? Apparently, Fox News was spending an inordinate amount of time talking about the recently declassified video of unidentified flying objects and speculating about whether or not we’re being visited by aliens. It then went on to post how many segments were dedicated to the shooting by CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News.
As you can see, the leftist news networks had quite a few more.
Segments discussing the Buffalo mass shooting today on cable news: CNN: 22; MSNBC: 16; Fox: 5.
By comparison, Fox has had 8 segments mentioning the UFO hearings.

Let’s take a step back for a second and deduce who is actually talking about more relevant news.
To be sure, the mass shooting in Buffalo is a topic worth talking about, but outside all of the court proceedings, it’s a mystery that’s been solved. As RedState has dedicated multiple articles to, including some from me, this was a deranged kid who was seduced by racist lunatics that post horrific things on 4Chan. He hates conservatives, seems to love Nazism, and thinks that white people should protect their culture by spilling the blood of others, especially Jewish people.

Clearly, I’m not dismissive of the shooting and I do consider it important to discuss how and why it happened. The issue is that entities like CNN and MSNBC aren’t interesting in doing that, they’re interested in using the shooting as a tool to push their own narratives and agendas. They want to blame Tucker Carlson, American gun laws, and whatever else they think will help them on their side of the aisle. They want to talk about how Republicans and conservatives aren’t reacting in the way they think they should.
What they don’t want to talk about is the fact that the kid was mentally disturbed and address the mental health issues that are behind almost every single mass shooting. They don’t want to talk about how the culture they pushed into the mainstream may have contributed to this kid’s delusional beliefs.
They especially don’t want to talk about the fact that a black supremacist went on a killing spree in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Dedicating time to talking about the shooting is useless if the time is being dedicated to discussing it for the benefit of a singular political party, which is what CNN and MSNBC are dead set on doing. In fact, the more these networks discuss the shooting, the less relevance their commentary takes on.
Meanwhile, there are objects floating around in our sky that our own government can’t identify. They move in unnatural ways that seem to defy physics.
Let’s think about this for just a moment.
Let’s say there’s an earthbound reason these things exist. What are they? Which country do they belong to? How did they get the technology to do this? Is this going to be a threat to us in the future? Or maybe this is a hitherto undiscovered natural phenomenon, and if so what causes it? Is it dangerous in any way?
Let’s say that some of the UFOs are aliens and not some Earthbound phenomenon. It changes everything. There’s life out there, and it’s far more intelligent than our own. It has the capability of traversing great distances in inhuman ways. Its technology outpaces ours by considerable leaps and bounds.
This raises questions of a more extraterrestrial nature as well. Who are they? Do they mean any harm? How long have they been watching us? What’s the reason for their presence here? Have they attempted to make contact? Where are they from?
These are just a few examples on a very long list of questions that could change our understanding of the universe, technology, physics, and even ourselves.
I don’t know about you, but I really think that’s worth talking about.
So it seems that, once again, Fox News is doing what other networks should be doing while the other networks dedicate time to being mouthpieces for a political party. Fox may be talking about the possibility of aliens, but it’s a way better use of time than propagandizing for Democrats.
