Another Day, Another Shooting. Boring!

Daniel Oliver, The Federalist

Here’s an idea for limiting mass shootings that liberals haven’t considered yet: restrict news coverage of them. There is some evidence (and it seems plausible) that the media attention given to mass shooters makes them role models for impressionable individuals who then commit mass shootings of their own. Many media outlets routinely omit the names of sexual victims. If the media don’t stop covering mass shootings voluntarily, perhaps they should be urged, by legislation, not to cover them. Of course, the media would howl. A congressman who doubles as a constitutional scholar should propose the idea.

Chicago is the country’s most-glaring example of what I have called the “Ferguson effect.” Chicago officers have cut back drastically on proactive policing under the onslaught of criticism from the Black Lives Matter movement and its political and media enablers.

Republicans must save the cities

Kevin D. Williamson, National Review

It shouldn’t be too hard to look at a place such as Chicago and ask: “Does Rahm Emanuel really act in your interest?” The answer is obviously not. Crime, corruption, dysfunctional schools, unsatisfactory public services from transit to sanitation: There’s a great deal of fertile ground for Republicans and conservatives there.

“Chicago” Republicans

Michael Giere, Virginia Free Citizen

The Republican Party has become essentially irrelevant. It now exists to ensure the consultants are well paid; but unlike its Dem. opposition, the Repubs. haven't learned how to use the media, social platforms, protests, micro-targeting and organization to back up candidates.
