The Zimmerman Effect? NYC Media Shies Away From Race in Local Robbery Reporting
Media Ethics aka Stinky Journalism ^ | August 22, 2013 | Hanqing Chen and Rolyne Joseph

A dramatic Manhattan robbery highlighted by the press in mid-July was just one part of a crime spree across the city's boroughs by a group of assailants.

However, local New York City media outlets repeatedly failed to identify the race of the suspects-at-large in their coverage, despite receiving a police advisory seeking the public’s help in apprehending the violent perpetrators putting citizens at risk in armed attacks across the city.

On July 10, The New York Daily News broke the story of 57-year-old Soho resident Anna Graham having been robbed at gunpoint a week earlier. Local media, such as NYC news site DNAInfo and New York Post, also reported the story.

Graham's reported verbal challenge to the gun-toting assailants made headlines. “You don’t have the balls to shoot me,” Graham said she told the assailants.

iMediaEthics spoke to Graham by phone this summer. We asked her if the media questioned her about the race of her attackers and whether she provided that information. She said, “Yes.”

"It was 1:30 at night, and it was two young black men," Graham said she told reporters. “The media asked me about it [race]-- everyone asked me about it,” she said, referring to the race of her robbers....

"NYC Media Shies Away From Race in Local Robbery Reporting"

Why ??..because it didn't come hand-delivered right from the White House ?
Investigative Journalism is dead !

In places with media blackouts of racial violence news, the Internet is about the only way around the problem.

However, there seems to be a parallel problem that has proven almost intractable in such places. As someone noted long ago, New York no longer has a local newspaper at all.

As many times as this has been pointed out to the New York newspapers, they utterly ignore it, and as such, prevent New Yorkers from knowing what is happening just one block away.

Instead their papers love to focus on things like the increasingly small number of “cocktail party circuit celebrities”, that truthfully most New Yorkers are indifferent to. And they bitterly resent the fact that other New Yorkers don’t give a hoot about such people.

The very idea of having a crime section in the newspaper would horrify them. They would deny reality, and insist that such information is inherently racist, because so are the majority of criminals. A paradox for them.

If not for anyone else.

It’s worked up till now, and it may continue to work for awhile more. However, the blacks are so out of control of themselves that the end is in sight.

I can predict that we will be lectured a thousand times by ‘our betters’, and that will give it a little more time, but this has an inevitable outcome.

Crime reporting like this:

The Irving Police Department is currently investigating an aggravated robbery that occurred at 9:50 a.m., Aug. 13, in the 1300 block of N. Belt Line Rd. The suspect entered the business with a dark colored bandana covering his face and pointed a revolver at the clerks while demanding money. The business has ballistic glass and other security features; therefore, the clerks hid behind the counter and did not acknowledge the suspect. Once the suspect recognized that he could not get to the clerks, he tried pointing the gun through one of the small openings in the window. When that did not work, he eventually realized that there was no way to get to the clerks or the money so he ran away. As he was leaving the business, he removed the bandana allowing a surveillance camera to obtain a photo

The NY Post is still reliable for local news.

“Shies Away From”
No. Deliberately suppressed that information is more like it. this is intentional. They know what they are doing.

The left WANTS the ‘oppressed’ underclass to rise up against the ‘oppressor’ (White).

They don’t want the perps caught.

It's been like this for a long time. They protect their own agenda.
If there is no mention of a perpetrators race, it's almost certainly not white. They promptly report white perps, with no small amount of glee it seems.
If a political figure is caught in wrongdoing and they neglect to mention his political affiliation, it's almost always a (D).
(R)'s are immediately hung out to be pelted with rotten produce.

The race war has begun.

It did not start with riots in the streets and ash in the skies, as we thought it would.

It started with the word being quietly put out, and now whites are being hunted on the streets by feral blacks.

But the Leftists don’t want you to know it yet. They don’t want an obvious in-your-face race war. They want whites to feel an undertow of dread, to feel powerless against the black horde that is lurking, waiting inside the urban kraals.

Fear causes paralysis. The ever-mounting tide of hate from the Left is frightening people.

The race was has begun, and the feral blacks are the shock troops.

This has nothing to do with Zimmerman. The media has been doing this for several years.

The black race mongers haven’t seen scary until whites riot.

What’s the point of posting large quantities of white space on numerous threads ?

Yet those who claim to be “oppressed” will sue the snot out of the “oppressors” to be allowed to be stuck up their “oppressors” rear ends like hemorrhoids. They want to live near us, work with us, go to school with us, belong to our clubs, and go anywhere their “oppressors” are. That tells us that it's not really a matter of oppression, it's a matter of parasites needing to stick close to their host.

They also want more time to pass gun grabber laws affecting every state in order to prevent whites from being able to shoot their predators, a la Zimmerman.

There’s a pic there for me. I think it’s probably a crime scene photo of a dead Trayvon.

For the last twenty years, most news outlets in NYC have given physical descriptions of suspects that don't mention race. The NYTimes will write that police are looking for a man in his twenties who is about 5’ 8”, medium build, with brown hair and brown eyes. Later, you'll see the perp’s photo in the New York Post and note that the Times had omitted the salient detail of the suspect’s (black) skin color.

Exactly. That’s what the GZ Trial was all about: back-door gun control.

I get the same thing, here in the cube farm. When I get back to The Bunker, I get to see the pics Joe and others post.

Even my own graphics don’t show up 80% of the time.

If the media reported every crime with ALL the attributes of the criminals and victims the Grand Wizard race pimps in the Klan With A Tan would be marching in the street.

Remember when various communities tried (maybe still do) to ban Real estate ads from containing words like Master Bedroom?

The media is locked arm in arm goosestepping with government in their social engineering efforts.

Can’t remember a time when the New York media did not shy away from reality. Accurate journalism has not been their mantra in my lifetime—at least I do not believe that I have ever seen such.

Indeed. The “mother” of St Skittles is now on a crusade to end “stand your ground” laws, even though
1) that law had nothing to do with the self-defense Zimmerman employed while being beat

2) At least in FL, it’s been shown that blacks use and benefit from “stand your ground” laws more than whites do.

Nonetheless, the repeal of those laws would be more detrimental to whites, as the Zimmerman trial has shown. Whites no longer get equal standing under the law of self-defense when a man can even be brought to trial for what the local police deemed a clear case of self-defense. The racebaiters want black criminals to be safe to rob, beat, and kill whites without risking being killed in the commission of their war on whites. Like the infant in the stroller, the mother working at a bakery to support her children, or the many whites and other non-blacks who have just in the past year been beaten, murdered, and raped by blacks , while the whites were unarmed and competely at the mercy of black thugs, often attacking lone or weak (elderly, children, disabled) in packs.

If they don’t say what race it was, you know it was committed by savages.
