Do You Remember

Remember when the media was crawling over every square foot of wind-ravaged Puerto Rican soil looking for examples of Trump administration incompetence and corruption, making a hero out of San Juan’s idiot Democrat mayor in the process, if only briefly?

Where is the media now?

A mayor and two former government officials in Puerto Rico face public corruption charges in separate cases that involve a total of $8 million in federal and local funds, authorities said Thursday. The suspects are the mayor of the southwest town of Sabana Grande and the former directors of finance for the northern town of Toa Baja, which has struggled to pay its employees amid an 11-year recession.

U.S. Attorney Rosa Emilia Rodriguez told reporters that the former officials from Toa Baja are accused of using nearly $5 million worth of federal funds to pay the town’s public employees and municipal contractors.

“Not only is that illegal, it’s immoral,” she said.

Puerto Rico – aka “A Warm Minneapolis” – would be considered a “Failed State” if it weren’t a US territory.

But unless the “news” can “denormalize” Trump, they really don’t care.

  1. Jim Treacher once wrote:

    Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn’t know because they might reflect badly on Democrats

    The problem is that the veracity of this statement is so obvious and malicious to all but the bluest of Democrats that it is almost banal.

    That said, sarcasm appeals to me as a way to deal with obvious evil, so Iowahawk’s rendition is right up my alley:

    Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving.

  2. The media hyenas avoided any coverage of Puerto Rico because they have been instructed not to go there by people who know how the leftist reprobates ruling over the territory roll.

    Puerto Rico was a smoking ruin of debt and failure years before the hurricane showed up to decorate it properly.
