Heroic US Army soldier covers woman in Vegas massacre, plugs bullet wounds with fingers.

Sometimes in the most tragic scenarios, we see the best in humanity surface to combat the evil. US Army soldier Matthew Cobos is a clear example of this paradoxical heroism.

In Las Vegas during the most deadly mass shooting in modern US history, Matthew Cobos was pictured using his own body to shield a woman from the barrage of gunfire delivered by the terrorist Stephen Paddock from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Cobos also covered the woman’s eyes to keep her from seeing the horrific scene around her.

When the images surfaced of Cobos’ heroic act it was unclear if the woman had been killed or wounded. The image quickly went viral.

The Getty photographer of the image David Becker testified that the couple had been able to flee just after the image was taken in a statement Tuesday.

DailyMail.com has reported “once Cobos got the woman to safety, he then ran back into the danger zone to help others who had been injured. He is understood to have used his belt as a tourniquet to stop people bleeding and even put his finger in bullet holes of some who had been shot.”

In riveting testimony, Cobos later told family and friends that he “could hear and see bullets ricocheting off the ground in front of him as he ran.

One thing is for sure. Matthew Cobos is the epitome of the American hero and acts as a beacon of light to the people of the nation in these dark times.

New Yorker Fires Male Feminist Ryan Lizza Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Published

on

The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza is the latest entrant on the “shitty men in media” list to be accused of sexual misconduct, giving further credit to the list’s veracity.

The Daily Beast quotes The New Yorker as stating that they have “learned that Ryan Lizza engaged in what we believe was improper sexual conduct.”

“We have reviewed the matter and, as a result, have severed ties with Lizza,” the outlet’s statement reportedly continues. “Due to a request for privacy, we are not commenting further.”

In a statement to BuzzFeed, Lizza is quoted as stating, “I am dismayed that The New Yorker has decided to characterize a respectful relationship with a woman I dated as somehow inappropriate.”

The “shitty men in media list” had Lizza pegged for inappropriate direct messages to women.

Lizza is now the seventh man on the list, which was first discussed by Cernovich Media in late October.

Six Men From ‘Sh*tty Men In Media List’ Have Resigned Or Been Fired… Who’s Next?

Published

on

A recap of the infamous “shitty men in media” list finds that since its existence was first publicized by Cernovich Media in late October, six men on it have either resigned or been fired from their positions at notable media outlets.

Cernovich Media first came across the list – which circulated among female journalists in the form of a spreadsheet – after it came into the hands of leading journalist Mike Cernovich.

At the time, a number of media outlets attempted to question the list’s veracity. The Cut, for instance, deemed it “unsubstantiated” and smeared Cernovich as attention-seeking.

While many of the men on the list remain free of formal complaints or evidence of wrongdoing, the appearance of six on the list appears to have been justified through internal investigations/proceedings at their respective outlets.

On the list, Michael Hafford – formerly of Broadly – was accused by multiple women of physical abuse, non-consensual choking, forced drug use, non-consensual barebacking during sex and inappropriate communication.

In November, a spokesperson for Broadly’s parent company Vice confirmed that Hafford has been banned as a contributor as a result of his alleged behavior.

Leon Wieseltier also appeared on the list, where he was accused of “workplace harassment.”

News broke in late October that Wiesltier’s magazine – which was set to launch that month – had been suspended.

Wiesltier – who worked for The Atlantic and The New Republic – also issued an apology, stating, “for my offenses against some of my colleagues in the past I offer a shaken apology and ask for their forgiveness.”

Next up is Hamilton Fish, who appeared on the list where he was accused of assaulting an employee at The Nation.

In early November, news broke that Fish had resigned as president and publisher of The New Republic. This news came one day after The New Republic announced it would be launching an investigation into Fish’s behavior.

Lorin Stein resigned as editor of The Paris Review after admitting to behaving inappropriately with women he worked with. This appears to be consistent with allegations leveled against Stein on the ‘shitty men in media list,’ where he stands accused of “workplace harassment.”

GQ political correspondent Rupert Myers lost his gig in October after numerous allegations surfaced concerning his behavior. The ‘shitty men in media list’ has Myers accused of inappropriate physical contact, harassment and reaching out to women in “professional context” before turning “very creepy.”

Coming in at #6 is David Corn – the Mother Jones and MSNBC affiliate who was outed in early November as having done a number of questionable things, including making rape jokes, inappropriately touching his coworkers and making unwanted references to their anatomy.

If the circumstances surrounding these men is any indicator, things aren’t looking too good for the other folks on the ‘shitty men in media list.’

LA Commissioner Celebrates Destruction of Rupert Murdoch’s Mansion in Wildfire

Published

on

One of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s transportation commissioners celebrated the possible destruction of Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch’s mansion in a fire that has ravaged part of the city.

In a post shared earlier this week on Facebook, Tafarai Bayne commented as follows:

Bayne is your typical leftist activist that infiltrates local government in California.

 

In addition to serving as the vice president of the Board of Transportation Commissioners for L.A.’s Department of Transportation, his LinkedIn page lists him as a “chief strategist” for CicLAvia, an organization that seeks to force people out of cars and onto bicycles.

Since sharing the post Bayne has set most of his Facebook posts to private.

Bayne’s callous comments follow in a long line of social media posts published by leftists taking joy and satisfaction out of the misfortune experienced by those who have center right political viewpoints during Hurricane Harvey and the Las Vegas mass shooting at a country music festival.

The latest reports are that Murdoch’s $30 million manse was partially damaged according to a statement released on behalf of the media tycoon.
