Mainstream Media Predicts ‘Black Swan Event’ During 2024 Election Cycle

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

CBS News correspondent Catherine Herridge warned viewers to expect a potential “Black Swan event” in the 2024 election cycle, foreshadowing a national security crisis with unpredictably high impact.

A “Black Swan event” refers to an unpredictable or totally unforeseen event, typically one with extremely dire consequences. This term was popularized by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his 2007 book “The Black Swan”.

During the year-end CBS News correspondents roundtable, the moderator Margaret Brennan asked Herridge about her “Black Swan” prediction.

GWP report: Catherine Herridge, a seasoned reporter who has covered national security and intelligence for years, shared her disturbing message regarding what the future holds under an increasingly desperate Biden regime.

“Well, mine’s a little dark,” she began. “I just feel a lot of concern that 2024 may be the year of a black swan event. This is a national security event with high impact that’s very hard to predict.”

Herridge outlined several factors contributing to her prediction. “There are a number of concerns- concerns, I have that factor into that. Not only this sort of enduring, heightened threat level that we’re facing, the wars in Israel, also Ukraine.”

Herridge emphasized the internal divisions within the United States, which she believes could create opportunities for adversaries like North Korea, China, and Iran.

“And we’re so divided in this country in ways that we haven’t seen before. And I think that just creates fertile ground for our adversaries like North Korea, China and Iran. And that’s what concerns me most,” she added. Watch:

Responding to Herridge’s comments, Brennan noted the widespread anxiety such predictions could cause. “A lot of people are up at night with that concern, Catherine. At least in this town,” Brennan said, highlighting the gravity of Herridge’s warning.

The conversation then shifted to underreported issues, with Brennan inquiring about topics that deserve more media attention. Herridge passionately advocated for more coverage of issues affecting U.S. servicemembers, particularly those struggling to access services and feeling that their claims have been wrongly denied.

“I just feel like we can’t do enough reporting on our servicemembers, especially those who are struggling to get services who feel that their claims have been wrongly denied.”

“Frankly, I feel that there are times when the Defense Department and the VA it’s not erring on the side of the veteran. And I think after 20 years of war, the global war on terror, so many are retiring with complex physical and emotional demands. And we are simply not doing enough and we need to do more reporting and have more accountability.”
