Let’s see, who is currently in front of the court of public opinion? There’s Tom Brady, the QB for the Pats who has been judged guilty by that court. Hence, the NFL says Tom will serve a 4 game suspension for perhaps knowing something about the deflated footballs. He will appeal, and unless the NFL gets more than” perhaps he knew something”, he will win the appeal.  There are six cops in Baltimore who a prosecutor says  caused the death of Freddie Gray and will face judgment by a real court-maybe? But, until then, they killed poor Freddie. The Clinton’s, not so much. There’s that book that outlines possible serious misdoings by both, but the “court of public opinion” is taking a pass on this one, choosing to focus more on Tom Brady. The thing about the “court of public opinion” is they pick favorites. They don’t like the NFL, ask the commissioner who they convicted in the Ray Rice issue then went after Roger’s head. Goodell survived and now is back in their bad graces over the Brady deflategate issue. Like a pound or two of air in footballs in a rout made a difference in the lives of all American’s.  But, a presidential candidate who may know a lot about four people dying in Benghazi or selling this country down the river for cash, isn’t worth discussing or judging? Not if you want her elected, it isn’t.

Is there a court of public opinion? Ask the cop in Ferguson, MO. if one exists. “Hands in the air, don’t shoot” never happened. But, it sure did in the media for weeks. Ask the fraternity at the University of Virginia ? Which will now be the richest fraternity in the history of fraternities when they get their payoff from Rolling Stone Magazine. Should they be getting settlements from other forms of media, sure? They all piled on, didn’t they? Don’t like fraternities or Lacrosse teams, ask those Duke University lacrosse players who may be more wealthy than the Virginia fraternity? Remember what the “court of public opinion” did to them and to Duke University?  Duke kicked them out of school based on the “court of public opinion” and that resulted in an undisclosed settlement from Duke. Plus one from the prosecutor’s office after they fired the prosecutor who started the whole mess.

The main target for the “court” these days is cops. See cops make mistakes. It doesn’t make them anything but human. It isn’t a racial thing, since they make mistakes with everyone, not just people of color. Cops are a cross-section of humanity. There are some who are error prone, some who have anger issues, and some who may be prone to violence. If one of them makes a mistake with someone not of color it’s not a problem the “court of public opinion” cares to notice. Or, if person of color kills a cop like one did in New York, not a big story for the “court”. If four persons of color kill two cops, one of color,  like they did in Mississippi, not much of a story for the “court”.  But, if a person of color is killed or injured by a cop or cops, gear up the “court”. See, its great fun to start a riot. Not such a good story to cover the  thousands who came out for the funeral for said cop in New York. Reverend Al skipped that funeral. He only goes to those being covered by the “court”.  See, Al and the court are on the same page. Otherwise, why would we even know there’s a Reverend Al?

The little terrorist issue in Texas. Tough deal for the “court”. See, their man, Obama, can do no wrong. The FBI says they tipped the cops in Texas about the bad guys, but the cops in Texas say they never got a tip. The FBI and Homeland Security say there are too many ISIS converts to keep tabs on of all of them. The “court of public opinion” would never allow profiling, which would narrow the job and I could avoid what I now go through at airports with a knee replacement, but far better for me to endure that than to have that guy from Syria on a Visa  put up with unfair treatment.

We have sold out in America to the “court of public opinion” They decide whats good and bad for us. I don’t care about gay rights, they can have all the rights in the world as far as I’m concerned. But, I must be told several times a day that it’s not fair. I don’t think Obama is doing a good job as president, but I must be told several times a day that he is. I think cops keep us all from becoming Detroit, but I’m told cops are bad. I don’t think cops are bad only to people of color, but I must watch as businesses burn because the court likes to light the match.  I know the NFL has some bad actors, but I don’t want the NFL to go away. But, the court does. Fraternity boys screw up. But, the court needs to stop convicting the innocent because those geeks in the court could never be in a fraternity. I don’t choose to buy the climate change crap. First, it’s being produced by the United Nations, which should go away and NASA which the president  is making go away and they need something to keep their jobs. Facts don’t support the claims. They, the court, did that kittle global freezing number in the 70’s.  But, I resent being called stupid by the “court”. I could go on. But, you get the picture.

The so-called court believes they are calling the shots in this country today, just as Goebbels, as  the Minister  of Propaganda,  thought in Germany in the 1940’s. More powerful than the leaders. They decide what’s best for the country. They help us think, since we can’t think for ourselves. It isn’t journalism, it’s running the court of public opinion, public opinion as determined by those in the court. The heads of media who all practice” group think”. Europe is a better place than America, as we have known this country, we must help America become Europe.  That’s the new version of journalism, ” the so-called court of public opinion” as determined by the media.
