Four days ago, 474 individuals were arrested in a CA human trafficking bust run by a small army of over 30 local, state, and federal agencies and task forces. Almost five dozen victims, both children and adults, were rescued. Child and family services agencies stand accused of pimping kids as sex slaves. Shocking? Extremely. Even more shocking, however, is the apparent consensus by many of the world’s largest media organizations that nothing about this operation was newsworthy.
There has been some coverage of it, of course. But aside from a small handful of exceptions, nearly all the coverage has been from local affiliates and “alternative news” sites. Below is a listing of some of the U.S. and world’s major news outlets, none of which have seen fit to issue even a sidebar article mentioning this momentous human trafficking bust involving authorities all the way up to the federal level:
-New York Times
-The Wall Street Journal
And to leave little doubt as to the significance of the bust, here is a listing of agencies and departments that paticipated. Please note — this list doesn’t even include all the police and sheriff’s departments that were involved:
-United States Attorney’s Office
-U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
-United States Marshals Service
-United States Department of Labor
-Federal Bureau of Investigation, Los Angeles
-Federal Bureau of Investigation, Fresno
-Federal Bureau of Investigation, Monterey
-Homeland Security Investigations, Los Angeles
-Homeland Security Investigations, Ventura
-Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office
-Los Angeles Regional Human Trafficking Task Force
-Long Beach Human Trafficking Task Force
-Los Angeles Unified School District Police
-Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force
-Riverside County Anti-Trafficking Task Force
-San Bernardino County Trafficking Task Force
-Santa Barbara Human Trafficking Task Force
-Ventura County Coalition Against Human Trafficking
We’ve already shown how an AP newswire story about a Norwegian pedophile bust implicating high-powered politicians and lawyers was scrubbed from mainstream news sources. One has to wonder if the bizarre media blackout on certain child sex stings is related to the Pizzagate allegations that pedophilia and human trafficking are endemic to a large segment of the U.S. government. Are elements of the power structure using non-coverage of child trafficking busts to cover them up, and help avoid implicating influential people?
At the very least, it’s bizarre how this California bust would get no mention whatsoever in any of the news outlets listed. And when something doesn’t make sense, there’s probably a reason for it.
What’s the reason here?
