UPDATE: The REAL Reason The Baltimore Bridge Collapsed?

Here we go, the mainstream media ‘explanations’ have started.

In an effort to get to the bottom of the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore Maryland, several MSM outlets are pushing a theory as to why the Cargo ship Dali lost power and struck the U.S. infrastructure.

“Dirty fuel” is being proposed as the potential reason behind the bridge collapse, but this sounds like a convenient excuse.

Very little is currently known about the specific reasons surrounding the Cargo ship failure and the bridge collapse.

Of course, at the same time, our critical infrastructure is rapidly aging and long past due for updates and overhauls.

Could this be the real reason the bridge collapsed? One can’t just leave a 50-year-old bridge built over the water alone for half a century.

Despite passing a trillion dollars or more in infrastructure spending, the U.S. government has done absolutely nothing to fix our crumbling infrastructure.

Media Watch revealed that at least one of the videos of the bridge collapse is fake news:

According to The Washington Post:

The Dali went dark as it lost electrical power just before the bridge disaster, and the pilot lost the ability to control the ship as it veered toward the support structure of the bridge.

That power loss could have been caused by dirty fuel clogging filters that lead to the ship’s main generator, said Gerald Scoggins, a veteran chief engineer in the oil and gas industry and the CEO of the Houston company Deepwater Producers.

Mayor Brandon Johnson had this to say in the immediate wake of the tragedy:

“This is an unthinkable tragedy. We have to, first and foremost, pray for all of those who are impacted, those families, pray for our first responders and thank them, all of them working together, city, state, local, to make sure that we are working through this tragedy.

This is an ongoing, active search that we’re having right now. We’re going to continue, as you heard from Chief Wallace, throughout as long as we have to be doing that, we will do it.

But we have to be thinking about the families and people impacted, folks who we have to try to find and save. This is what our focus should be on right now.

We’re going to continue to work in partnership with every part of government to do everything that we can to get us through the other side of this tragedy.”

BBC News provided a structural explanation for the bridge collapse:

Ms Homendy of the NTSB said the bridge was in satisfactory condition but it did not have redundancies, meaning if a part of the bridge collapses then the whole bridge could collapse.

This is not the preferred method for building a bridge today, she said.
