If The Mainstream Media Of 2020 Had Existed Then...

December 7th, 1941; NBC Radio Network:

“Good evening and welcome to the NBC Nightly News. In an extraordinary demonstration of flying skill and political moxie, a procession of mostly peaceful Japanese pilots overflew Pearl harbor this morning…”

April 13th, 1945; The New York Times:

“American troops liberated Ohrdruf, a so-called German ‘concentration camp’ yesterday, only to discover that the mostly peaceful Nazis apparently occasionally ‘intensified’ their efforts to convince its Jewish guests to comply with certain regulations and mandates.”

June 19, 1963; The Washington Post:

Mostly peaceful Klu Klux Klan members burned down several black Christian churches yesterday and used hound dogs to tree a number of uppity negroes. These atypical actions were precipitated by the general lack of respect afforded to Klan members according to local authorities…and the KKK. Eventually, a Wall of Mothers formed to protect the mostly peaceful Klan members from potential federal intervention.”

September 11th, 2001; MSNBC:

“New York City—and indeed America herself—was taken aback earlier today when a number of mostly peaceful Muslim jihadists flew hijacked passenger planes into the World Trade Center towers, potentially killing thousands of innocent men, women and children. The question on everyone’s mind is ‘how did the United States bring this on itself?’ or ‘how did George W. Bush and the Republicans manage to force so many members of the Religion of Peace into such bold and hurtful actions?’”
