The Confusion Surrounding Brian Sicknick’s Death Was a Failure of Government Transparency – By CJ Ciaramella (Reason) / April 20 2021
Blame the media for running anonymous sources, but don’t let government off the hook for its secrecy and misinformation.
The Washington Post reported Monday, more than three months after the death of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick following the January 6 Capitol riots, that Sicknick died of natural causes and did not have any external or internal injuries.
The findings of D.C.’s chief medical examiner end months of speculation surrounding Sicknick’s death, and have led to questions about how the media could botch, yet again, such an important story.
For those who earn their bread complaining about the perfidy of the press, like Glenn Greenwald, this is just another instance of the hopelessly corrupt liberal media spinning a story to conform to its preferred narrative.
“This is what is so repulsive is they completely exploited this person, this young police officer, who they obviously didn’t care anything about,” Greenwald told Fox News host Tucker Carlson last night. “They saw him as a toy to exploit his death for purely political ends in ways that we now know were a complete and utter lie.”
