Brandi Kruse calls out KING 5’s Cornelius Hocker for biased reporting

Best reporting regarding the not-so-peaceful protests at UW and the PNW regarding pro-palestine vs Jewish factions: Brandi Kruse and Jonathan Choe.
Brandi Kruse says: “News outlets that ignore violence in their coverage of protests are making a CHOICE to ignore it. It’s a choice that robs viewers and readers of a complete picture and, in Seattle, emboldens the same extremists who have assaulted countless journalists over the past decade.”

  1. King use to have the best news crews for years. They are pure garbage now. Will not watch at all anymore. There is a reason everybody calls them Woke5 news.


    At QZVX, we have a standing policy against trolling and wokeness. If you are offended by anything you read at QZVX, understand that we will not attempt to assuage your bruised sensibilities. Elon Musk said, “wokeness is basically a humorless society that is simply rife with condemnation and hate. At its heart, wokeness is divisive, exclusionary, and hateful. It gives mean people a shield to be mean and cruel, armored in false virtue.” QZVX is not your soapbox. Your priggishness toward this policy will not be tolerated. If you take offense to a remark or an opinion that differs from yours, understand that we will not tolerate your social justice messaging, lecture, or virtue signaling. Once your response crosses the line into name-calling or becomes a political argument, that response is subject to immediate deletion. Your opinion will not influence us to change our opinion. An apology for anything you deem offensive is not forthcoming. Any person found to be using a fake/anonymous name or email address will have their comments deleted. Personal attacks are subject to deletion. These offenses can cause readers to be banned from making future comments. For those that can adhere to this policy, your comments are welcome.

    1. As the GUIDELINES tell you, idiots who insist on being ass-clowns in COMMENTS will have all COMMENTS deleted, as has happened with this post. Lefty Liberal woke whiners are warned, smart-aleck heckling serves no purpose and will cause your access to COMMENT sections to be denied. Go elsewhere to spew your vomit.

  3. As a person who worked under the shadow of KING for 11 years. I saw the best. most authoritative, well-sourced, versatile reporters around every single day. Now, there is no reporter at K5 that I could confidently send to cover a big story like the one unfolding at UW. They just are not mature enough, informed enough or talented enough. I would have temporarily assigned the Investigators team to this entire situation, to get the best intelligent coverage, or moved Drew Mikkleson from the south bureau for awhile. IMHO Gotta match up the reporters with the powerful content.
