As a further illustration of just how completely our news media universe has collapsed, I found out this morning from a blog (so, you know, hurrah for Balloon Juice) that Nebraska is under water. While I expect no better of the Huffington Post, it didn't make Slate or Vox; or, more seriously, the CBC radio national news. 

It all makes me a little sick, since there's a developing trend in social media for people to claim that everyone's ignoring the situation in Nebraska because they're a bunch of "deplorables."Just what we needed this weekend.

 

Ah, now it's there. Just a bit slow. Vox is that way, sometimes.

He was once eaten by a shoggoth.  

 

I have had staring contest Cthulhu, and never went crazy.  I don't get it.   (the voice in my head says it is because if you are already crazy then you are immune.)

So, someone thought it would be a good idea to have one AI train another AI to replace us. They even made a guessing "game."

I’m not sure what the death toll is in Nebraska, but I think it’s lower than the one in Christchurch. If it bleeds it leads, and sadly, NZ bled more this week. 

 

This is only true if it fits the narrative.

 

Christians in Nigeria are getting annihilated by Muslim extremists, but that's not something the mainstream news in America wants to cover.

 

Both are horrifying atrocities, but only one of them is getting coverage.

I, for one, welcome our bee and fish overlords. 

 

They're ok, but it is a robot plot, the robots will kill me, no, they will torture me first, wait they already do that.

The conflict in Nigeria appears to be a fight over resources between primarily Christian farmers and primarily Muslim ranchers, with large numbers of deaths on both sides. Religious affiliation is more of a secondary issue, that’s being used selectively by certain sources.

Breitbart also markedly failed to mention in their article the single largest atrocity recorded during February and March 2019, one in which members of the mainly Christian Adara ethnic group were alleged to have killed 130 members of the mainly Muslim Fula ethnic group.
