Joy Reid and the Legacy Media Suffer From “Missing Telling the Truth Syndrome”

Joy Reid: “Now it goes without saying that no family should ever have to endure that kind of pain, and the Petito family certainly deserve answers and justice. But the way this story has captivated the nation has many wondering, why not the same media attention when people of color go missing?” Reid asked. 

The message from MSNBC’s resident racist Joy Reid is clear:  if you care about a terrible fate befalling a white girl, you are a racist.

Joy Reid: “Well, the answer actually has a name, ‘missing white woman syndrome.’”

Even though I am not familiar with ‘missing white woman syndrome,’ I am going to shock my readers by agreeing with Joy Reid.  Whenever a young white woman, or a white child, falls victim to a terrible crime, Americans pay attention.  They do not pay similar attention to crimes affecting the black community.  And the reason for that disparity is no other than Joy Reid, and her legacy media collaborators.  Legacy media simply does not report crimes that are killing people in the black community, so American people don’t know what is going on.

Reported by DailyWire (not by Joy Reid):

Last weekend, 64 people shot and at least nine killed in Chicago, including a 12-year-old boy who was shot by his mother after a disagreement about a memory card.

Reported by The Sun (not by Joy Reid):

Labor Day weekend saw heightened levels of violence after a four-year-old boy was murdered and 67 others gunned down across America over the holidays.

Reported by Chicago Tribune (not by Joy Reid):

 In the first week of August, at least 47 people were shot in less than 24 hours in Chicago, seven of them fatally.

Reported by CWB Chicago (not by Joy Reid):

“June 2020 recorded more murders than any other June in the history of the modern Chicago Police Department. And, after victims who are still clinging to life succumb to their wounds, last month will likely rank among the five worst Junes in history.”

Every week, conservative news outlets report the slaughter of black residents, including women and children, on the streets of Chicago and other cities, run by the liberal mayors and governors. Every week, the legacy media blacks out these stories. The reason? The victims are not murdered by evil white people. It’s the black gangs that do the slaughter – and that is not the story the legacy media wants you to hear. Black people are supposed to be the victims of white oppressors – not of black criminals and the failing liberal policies that allow these criminals to run wild. And the legacy media today will not report any stories that do not fit their narrative.

American public is a victim to “missing white woman syndrome” in the same way they are victim to “systemic racism in America” syndrome.  And the reason for both maladies, as well as many others, is Joy Reid, and her disciples in the legacy media.  They hide the truth from you – and then they blame you for not knowing the truth.

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.

  1. I remember when Natalee Holloway was missing in Aruba and the story went on for weeks. Similar statements were made back then. I don’t know that what interests people can be controlled. Maybe this is about color, actually, of course it is, everything’s about color nowadays. As far as who’s to blame. Nobody. Who’s to blame that I dislike eating liver and am not fond of Budweiser? If I had to blame someone for American’s preference for stories about missing White women, I’d include what is commonly referred to as the liberal media. Do they highlight accounts of missing women of color? No, they don’t. So, shut up attention-seeking, objectivity-avoiding, Wendy Williams wannabe, Joy Reid.

  2. “missing white woman syndrome” Yes, you are racists if you report on white missing women. You are racists if you report on black people being killed – pointing our black-on-black crime. You are racists either way. You just wonder if Reid is really this stupid or just nerferious.

  3. Joy Reid is dumber than a box of rocks and is as ugly as a mud fence to boot. She fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
