Drive-by Media Not Doing its Job
Selective reporting is not working

Breitbart -- October 22, 2015
Local and National Media Ignore RPG Attack Just Miles from Texas Border
    Local and National media outlets have all but ignored an RPG (Rocket Propelled Grenade) attack on a Mexican police headquarters building located just south of the Texas border town of Eagle Pass. This seems to follow a pattern of news outlets ignoring the cartel war occurring just south of the major Texas cities of McAllen and Brownsville.
    On Friday evening, a SUV loaded with gunmen suspected to be members of the Los Zetas drug cartel, attacked a police building that is headquarters of a specialized police SWAT (GATES in Spanish) team in the city of Piedras Negras, Coahuila. Breitbart Texas' Ildefonso Ortiz reported the cartel gunmen fired a Russian RPG-7 at the state police building. The RPG did not explode but members of the Mexican military were dispatched to retrieve it and deactivate the device.
    Despite the use of such a powerful weapon so close to the borders of the United States, a weapon used by terrorists around the world, not one U.S. news outlet appears to have covered the incident. The incident was covered by Mexican news agencies, both locally and nationally.
    The massive violence just south of the Texas/Mexico border between fractions of the Gulf Cartel also seem to go unreported in the U.S. with the exception of local outlets in the Rio Grande Valley.

Socialist vs Social Media?
    As we reported yesterday, it took Fox News seven years to finally report that new fencing at Yuma almost stopped illegal border crossings cold.
    Donald Trump is drawing enormous cheering crowds as he goes around the country promising to secure the border and deport illegal aliens. Despite years of selective reporting by a mainstream media that favor open borders and no immigration law enforcement, the people are beginning to understand what is good for them - and what is not.
    Maybe the social media is overcoming the socialist media.
