White Supremacists Riot in Toledo, Ohio
By JOHN SEEWER, Associated Press Writer (10 minutes ago)
I have never seen such blatant bias as in this headline. This isn't some confusing positioning of words but an out-an-out lie. The actual meat of this bony article, while trying to deflect the true blame here, doesn't continue the lie. It is purely for the quick hit, where someone doesn't actually read the article and goes away with an impression of the true aggressors being the dickweed Nazis.
Uh I don't see any change on ABC's site as of 1:18pm EST Sunday.
Leather Nikes maybe, but plasma tvs sorry. lol
Just listening to the police chief yesterday told me all I had to know. It was as if he thought he was dealing solely with a race relations 'problem'.
Fox News has now changed their first paragraph of the article to read:
"A crowd protesting a white supremacists' march Saturday turned violent, throwing baseball-sized rocks at police, vandalizing vehicles and stores, and setting fire to a neighborhood bar, authorities said."
AbcNEWS put the headline back to "White Supremacists Riot in Toledo, Ohio"!
I'm still flabbergasted.
My brother, who lives in nearby Maumee, and I have talked since this morning and he was speechless when I told him about AP's headline.
The AP's culpability in this story ranks up there with Rather's in his.
If a single White Supremacist had thrown a rock, I'm sure the eager photographers would have caught him in the act and plastered it on the front pages. The best they could come up with was the picture that accompanies the story:
Indeed they do.
Here is yet another updated version.
ABC and others continue their attempts at deceit. Here again, they falsely claim that the resulting riot by gang bangers was caused by a planned march of white supremacists. (who never marched)
Yea right. Like gang bangers need an excuse to commit mayhem on public streets.
thanks for the tip.. I hope others continue to pick this up.
"Why can't the mom and dads say something to their kids?"I doubt they care.
well, I thepoliticalteen.net has my (admittedly sloppy) email up about this... pretty high traffic site, that many others link to because he Tivos everything and has all the videos you could ever want to see (i.e. Donahue on the Factor, Black Panther idiots on Hannity & Colmes, etc. etc.) I definitely reccomend checking out his site regularly, if you don't have time to watch all the cable news primetime... anyway, here's his post (which again is just my sloppy email that I sent to Michelle Malkin and Little Green Footballs, but they haven't posted on it yet.)
TBOnline,should of known.This is a moderate/conservative area,but the Tampa Trib and StPete Times are blatantly left.I haven't subscribed to either rag in yrs.Ironicaly,the StPeteTimes is considered a very good paper.
I guess these lefties don't get Fox News on their cable. The rest of the country watched young black thugs throwing rocks through the windshield of an ambulance, attack police, and burn some offensive white-owned businesses. I can't wait to read Brent Bozell's comments on this lying news coverage.
to avoid a hot link to this guy (cuz I don't know who he is), I'll provide the Yahoo! video search... Hilarious if anyone hasn't seen it:
excellent point... he actually gets seen on FNC. Perhaps he'll be on O'Reilly or H&C to mention this bologna tomorrow.
