The legacy media has noticed that America’smurder rates are going down. We’ve been aware of that for some time now. But it’s finally reached the point that even the high priesthood of the authorized purveyors of ‘official reporting’ can no longer ignore it. So there’s an article on the subject by The Week’s Editorial Staff (linked at Yahoo News where I found it (not that they, in particular qualify as “high priesthood” exactly…)).
In their editorial they offer three things they think might have something to do with this trend. I’ll let you go see for yourself what they want to claim may be responsible. Nope. They don’t mention that. They don’t even hint at it. But there are (as if this writing) some 376 comments - many of which are pointing out the elephant in the room that the authorized media are so thoroughly ignoring.
As so many of the bolgers I read on a daily basis would say: We’re winning.
