Oh, it will go to trial. The powers to be MUST appease the Jackson and Sharpton crowd. No matter how weak the case, it will go to trial.. . . if the case even reaches trial. . .
That depends on a critical assumption - the continued active support of the MSM for Sharpton and his thugs. Delete that critical support, and the equation is totally different. You will of course say that it is extremely naive to believe that the MSM will get religion and stop promoting civil unrest. And I agree - unless the MSM (i.e., the Associated Press and its members individually) are sued under the Sherman Act and under RICO for triple the damages caused by any riots which they and their friends have provoked.The MSM is a single entity because all major journalism outlets are joined at the hip - and the thing that joins them is the AP wire."
A class action lawsuit, with all journalists listed as defendants, and all Republicans - and any Democrats who volunteer to be part of the class - as plaintiffs, should complain that monopoly journalism is a public nuisance which threatens the public peace, that monopoly journalism profits by unrest and bad news, and that journalism is using Sharpton and the Black Panthers to promote harm to peaceable citizens for its own profit. They are crying Fire in a crowded theater.
You present some thought-provoking points. We can all only hope.
