The January 6th videos are beginning to come in, from all over the political spectrum, and from sources ranging from mainstream media through pro-Trump demonstrators to simply curious onlookers,. A lot of the videos taken by non-professionals have been posted at odd (sometimes very odd) corners of the Internet, simply because they couldn't get posted anywhere else. Regardless of the politics of the photographers or posting sites, the evidence in the footage is significant.
The best media reaction I've seen, from a purely journalistic point of view, comes from The Epoch Times, and is a constructed timeline of the known events:
Now the Epoch Times is an interesting newspaper; it was founded with set-up money from the Falun Gong organization, headquartered in Deerpark, New York, and Falun Gong sympathizers are still its strongest supporters. Falun Gong is a religious sect of pacifist Buddhists with additions of traditional Chinese yoga, and they've been persecuted rigorously by the Chinese government. As a result, the Epoch Times daily reports always include sidebar articles about the sins of the Chinese government. They absolutely hate the Chinese Communist Party, for obvious reasons. This has caused western media to proclaim that the Epoch Times is a "right-wing" or even "far-right" paper, regardless of its attitudes toward other political organizations. In fact, I haven't seen evidence of any political bias in the Epoch Times aside from its hatred of the CCP. It's a good example of the smaller news media that are filling in the vacuum left by public disillusionment with the major news media.
All these little-guy media have to be checked out individually for bias and accuracy, and whoever does the evaluating has to be checked out too -- who watches the watchers -- but we have to begin doing it now, ourselves. The alternative is to keep on blindly believing Big Media and Big Tech information platforms which have publicly revealed themselves as biased, vindictive, spiteful and overbearing. "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty", and that means accepting the chore of always checking out your information sources.
Nobody deserves blind faith, not even -- in my not-so-humble opinion -- the gods themselves.
