The other night on the O’Reilly show, Bill called those of us who question the shooting of this animal (Crazy.)
Firstly, I called Harambe, Magilla for a reason. There are a number of us Baby Boomers, who might think of this creature with fondness. Years ago there was a cartoon about a lovable gorilla named Magilla. Magilla would constantly cause his owner, Mr. Peabody angst. We, in fact, have this as our “context” of what and who this creature was which might cause us to become mawkish over this creature.
We might also remember with fondness the work of Dian Fossey or Jane Goodall. We might be aware of the work of Francine or “Penny” Patterson and her work with KOKO who one could have a conversation with through signing, using its own language of GSL (Gorilla sign language.)
Then Bill we see small snippets on the news of an animal that appears to be helping the child up after a terrific fall, and find out that Harambe was shot for looking out for the child.
The problem Bill; we did not appreciate the vulgarian nature of the creature as we did not see the video of the child dragged through the water by its leg until we watched your show.
Once again journalism at its finest looks to incite public outcry, I suspect for ratings by biasing the story.
I would submit to you Bill; it is not us who are crazy. It is we the public that are deceived under the guise of reporting a story. In truth, they appear to be practicing “Yellow Journalism.”
In this, I agree with Trump; some media are sleaze. It would appear that they might do anything for ratings without regard for the end result.
Just my two Cents…
