can anyone believe ABC has still not fixed this, despite AP fixing it a while ago? Also, how could this have even come out? I mean, I am used to the liberal spin, etc. But WTF? How can they flat out lie and send the story out? What is going on? Everyone always screams about freedom of the press, what about freedom from the press? If we can't get the truth, what do we base our decisions and opinions on? Maybe like Rather, ABC will say... "well, despite what we all saw and what the video shows.. we still believe it to be true"
Anyway, like I said.. ABC has made no correction here:
Then here's a search of "Toledo" from their homepage.. still same headline there too.
Welll, it WAS, after all, "the black people" (almost exclusively) who were looting and rioting. Not like anyone made them do it.
Yeah, me, too. I saved screen shots to actual size of all the headline/features/all the sites running this story, including the google and yahoo news listings.
Oh..my..gawd! Ya gotta see this...
Dave Chappelle is a black comedian who had a pretty good show for a while on Comedy Central. The blind black white supremecist character was a natural to bring into this thread. Funny stuff.
If this riot had happened during the O' Reilly show the MSM might actually have gotten away with this kind of lie.
Oh, no; you misunderstand!
You must carefully parse the compressed English we used in the headline; we meant it to mean "it was a riot by peaceful homies, outraged by the existence of white supremacists".
In other words, it was a riot about, not by, white supremacists. We are very sorry for any possible confussion, though we are mystified that anyone could honestly misconstrue the meaning so badly.
Are you sure you do not have a suspoect, perhaps racist agenda?

P.S. I note that you were not upset that my name was typoed in the byline to JOHN SEEWER
thing is, even if anyone were to let them off the hook with such a bs excuse... ABC would still have to answer for it's subheading that appears under the main headline:
"Mayor of Toledo, Ohio, Declares Emergency, Sets Curfew After Hundreds of White Supremacists Riot"
No misunderstanding that... FLAT OUT LIE.
bookmark for later.
As much as I can't stand the NAZIs...though I used to get a lot of laughs out of footage of George Lincoln Rockwell, way back when...I hope they hire a good lawyer. (I understand Buddy and Annie Spell are
looking for some more publicity oportunities free to take new clients.)
Watching NAZIs sue the media for defamation would provide almost as much entertainment as watching a battle between Chicoms & Jihadis.
hopefully ACLU lawyers aren't too busy setting up babysitting plans with their buddies at NAMBLA to help out....
"Not holding my breath.. this is Rabair, signing off"
more blogs finally gettin' on this
Must be a lot like the looting and rapes and murders that never really happened in NOLA.
talk about affirmative action, white supremacists are now minorities
OK. Nice pic of some peaceful counter-protestors standing by a sign.
Do you have any pics of whites rioting, looting, destroying property, breaking into buildings?
Melee, that's funny.
Maybe the MSM should revive it. "White Supremacists to Blame for Donnybrook" might be politically acceptable.
Reminds me of the blind, black KKK leader skit from Chapelle's Show. That was one of the funniest skits on that show. Can anyone download a picture?
man, those rioting 'white supremacists' have awfully dark skin.
maybe i'm just ol' fashioned.
Either that or those White Supremacist gangs with the deep sun-tans that I watched on Fox breaking into and looting neighborhood bidnesses proved that white men with deep sun-tans CAN jump.
The looters were having a high old time, looting and jumping and running around with their spoils.
This is reminiscent of the rioting that I watched in the 60's when entire city blocks were burned to the ground in many of America's large cities.
In all honesty, it didn't do much to make me sympathetic to the "plight" of black people. There is absolutely no justification for this behavior regardless of their outrage against the march, just as there was no justification for the burning and looting that took place in the 60's.
Now this will finally get the attention it deserves... Michelle Malkin has posted... I wouldn't be surprised to hear mention of this on FNC this afternoon/evening now... Although, Malkin goes after the general media tone and less on the deliberate lie from the AP/ABC... so hopefully enough of her readers who have connections find that real point still.
by the way, here's where ABC still stands on this. No change on story:
and that is still the story you get when searching for "toledo" and same for "riot
How can they continue this known lie? I have emailed them a couple times insisting they should make a public retraction and apology... Not holding my breath because I'm just one guy... but I hope this thing gets on some bigger folks' radar.
Just got a reply from ABC News...
Thank you for contacting us.
The "Raw News" comes directly to our site on an automated feed from the wire service. Often it is out of our control when there are errors. The feature gives our readers up-to-the minute news, but there is a sacrifice with details, so it lives up to its name "Raw".
Thanks for logging on to ABCNews.com.
I'm totally fed up with the Poor Black Rioters and the News Media that Champion these scumbags!
The news on the situation definitely wasn't "raw". I heard hours before the ABC News headline came out that the Neo-Nazi group hadn't even shown up. Now maybe that wasn't exactly right either, but it should've given ABC pause to check out whether or not the Nazi's actually showed up or not. Later i heard that the Nazi's had shown up but left right away. Anybody know which story is true?
It's definitely BS that the Neo-Nazi group were the rioters. And ABC News knew it and decided to go with a lie because the truth didn't jibe with their view of things and the associated propaganda that they spew in order to propogate that view.

-----Out of control animals Riot in Toledo, Ohio
There. All fixed. :p
Hell, I was out of town for 4 days and kept up better than they did!
(I’ve returned to this thread hunting for a link I posted to one of the threads on this topic years ago). I must correct your post though for any future readers...
The victim did NOT invite the white supremacists to Toledo. They read his plight online and came to the Western side of Ohio on their own.
