A little over per week in the past, MSNBC pundit Joy Reid complained about nationwide media protection of Gabby Petito, dubbing it “missing white woman syndrome.” She cited different examples akin to Natalee Holloway and Laci Peterson. Reid did what she usually does and requested, “Why not the same media attention when people of color go missing?”
Well, I’ve a query for Reid: Why haven’t you given any media consideration to missing women of color?
One week after decrying “missing white woman syndrome,” Reid has completed precisely the identical factor she complained that each different outlet was doing — ignoring the case of Miya Marcano, a missing girl of color.
Marcano was final seen on Sept. 24 on the Arden Villas flats in Orlando. She is nineteen years outdated and 5 toes tall, NBC affiliate WESH 2 reported. Marcano’s father informed authorities that his daughter was supposed to catch a flight to her household’s dwelling in Fort Lauderdale on the night of Sept. 24 however by no means boarded the aircraft. Marcano works for the leasing workplace within the residence complicated the place she lives. Armando Manuel Caballero, 27, a upkeep man for the complicated, was recognized as an individual of curiosity after she was declared missing. He was discovered lifeless by obvious suicide on Monday, NBC affiliate WESH 2 reported.
The case of Marcano is totally tragic and heartbreaking. It’s even good tv. So why isn’t Reid speaking about it? She has a platform of over one million viewers an evening, 5 nights per week. She has had two reveals since Marcano went missing — that might have been over 2 million exposures about Marcano’s case. She may have even introduced it up to argue about the eye it’s receiving relative to that of Petito. But she did not. She did not even tweet about it. It’s not one thing she usually tweets about — I used to be not ready to undergo all of her 187,300 tweets, nevertheless it doesn’t seem she discusses any missing women of color.
Instead of Marcano, Reid selected to discuss about former President Donald Trump, the “MAGA” get together, the Arizona audit, the Cyber Ninjas report, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, Republicans, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, and former President Barack Obama.
She selected to retweet about Trump, Gen. Mark Milley, LeBron James, Republicans, Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, Damian Lillard, the Lincoln Project, the Tulsa Race Massacre, Jimi Hendrix, Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, Django Unchained, and Tucker Carlson, simply to title a couple of.
Reid isn’t speaking about Marcano as a result of, fairly frankly, she doesn’t care. She has different issues to do along with her time, together with criticizing the media for by no means speaking about individuals like Marcano.
