Then why did they ignore this one?
This story, however horrible, is NOTHING compared to the Wichita Massacre- another non-reported story:Big, big bump.
THANKS FOR THE INFO.
This explains why you continue to see "news" stories about cold cases such as Natalee Holloway or JonBenet Ramsey and are more likely to see pictorial coverage of black criminals than white ones.
First off, while I agree the preferred TV victim is a pretty white female, the preferred perp is and always will be a white male. The suggestion that blacks (per capita) are more likely to have their pictures shown is not true. It may be true on distinct numbers, but black men drawf all other races for being violent criminals. Thus it may be true on pure raw numbers, but that is not a real measurement of the bias, and this article disguises that fact.
Where are the black examples of David Westerfield, Peterson, and the others that had their mugs shown over and over again on TV? Contrast this with the "beltway snipers". Remember the obsession the media had with this case and stupid Moose Johnson on TV swearing that it was the work of whites, because we are allowed to profile them and even IGNORE obivous and blantant in-your-face evidence as long as we continue searching for a white perpetrator.
Now I ask, how many of us could pick the belt-way snipers out of a line-up? Could we pick out Westerfield, Peterson (name may be wrong, but I'll never forget his face) or Megan's law killer out of a lineup?
Kansas City Massacre? The one where the black navy seaman started shooting whites in a hotel, a Holiday Inn? That was on the order of 40 years ago.
Never heard of this story before now bump.
The MSM is keeping this one really quiet.
No, it was the 2 black males and 5 whites 2 men,3 women on Christmas Eve.
For the most part true; I think that the image that lacrosse has had as an east coast elite sport might have been contributory, but the main points were what you said.
The female victum was pretty good looking here don’t you think?
Poynter is as Communist as the New York Times. Think NY Slimes on Tampa Bay rather than the Old Grey Presstitute on the Hudson.
The James Byrd and Matthew Shepherd comparisons I can buy. With the Duke case, the fact that it was covered was not due to race, although the way it was covered was definitely affected by race.
Amen. Snopes injects some BS that we who are complaining about the lack of coverage are suggesting that it is a media conspiracy. Idiotic statements like that drive me bat$hit. It’s not about media CONSPIRACY! It’s about media sharing a common liberal bias which saturates “politically correct” news coverage that dominates the MSM.
It’s a common dodge with libs to lie about our belief that the media conspires against us. It is as dishonest as everything else they do.
Lets hope you’re right,they won’t get justice in this world.
