The media lie about stupid stuff, too

Sure, we all know that the media are not covering the Christian/Newsome double rape/torture/murder, but I want to give an example of how they also mislead us on the smaller things when it suits the agenda, or rather when reality does not fit their agenda. How do you if something happened in Belarus, or China, or . . . Atlanta? You know it through the media. If what you know is full of lies and mis-truths, you may as well be hallucinating, because you are fundamentally mis-perceiving reality.

The title of the article is: “Free day causes chaos at Six Flags.” The article notes that it was an event sponsored by “The Bert Show,” a program on a “White” radio station. Here is the cast of “The Bert Show” along with the other DJs listed on the station’s website:

Reality check: It looked, sounded, and smelled like a rap video, and the lines were longer than those on chicken day back in high-school:

The people involved in staging a free-admission promotion at the Six Flags Over Georgia amusement park say they never saw Thursday morning’s trouble coming. The promotion bottled up morning rush hour traffic on Atlanta’s west side and frustrated youngsters turned away shortly after 6 a.m. because the park had reached capacity.So much for a fun day during spring break from school and the free admission to the amusement park, which was supposed to run from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.

The traffic tie-ups had children walking along I-20 to escape stopped cars and get to the park before the gates closed.

“We were expecting a large crowd but not as the gate opened,” spokeswoman Christy Poore said. “We had 300 cars lined up at 2 a.m.”

As a precaution, officials opened the park in sections between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m., Poore said.

The first section — an area stretching from the Georgia Scorcher to the Shake, Rattle & Roll indoor ride — reached capacity within 15 minutes of opening. By then, there were about 15,000 people inside the park, Poore said, declining to discuss the park’s capacity.

Bert Weiss, the morning jock on Q-100, which sponsored the promotion, said Six Flags officials projected the crowd would build throughout the morning.

“It was just impossible to predict that many people would show up that early,” he said.

Cobb police say they were caught off guard by the traffic that eventually brought traffic on I-20 during the morning commute. Authorities asked motorists to stay off I-20 until at least 10 a.m.

Traffic has since returned to normal.

“It wasn’t planned for us to be out there,” said Cassie Reece, a Cobb police spokeswoman. “We were out there because we were called.”

For morning commuters I-20, driving in either direction was no thrill ride.

At its worst, travel time on eastbound I-20 from Lee Road to I-285 was about 25 minutes. It normally is under 10. Cobb County police closed the main exit for the park — Exit 43 off I-20 — about 6:15 a.m. The exits have since reopened.

Jaleesa Prather and Tradasher Wimbley, both 18, arrived about midnight. They slept on the ground at a nearby parking lot until about 3 a.m, then moved toward the park’s main gate.

About 3:30 a.m., hundreds of youths rushed the fence barriers and the front gate when they thought the park was about to open. Fights erupted over tickets being passed out by park staff, they said.
