Skip to comments.National Media's Refusal to Cover White Couple's Murder (snopes confirms)
Posted on 12/15/2007 12:46:58 PM PST by restornu
OK, so let's create a level playing field here. I have not even heard of this on CBS, ABC, NBC or any of the cable news services, even FOX NEWS. OR in any of the Newsrags or other publications. Read this and weep.
Bet you $20 you did not hear this on the national news.
The animals pictured below car-jacked, then raped Christopher Newsom, cut off his penis, then set him on fire and fatally shot him several times while they forced his girlfriend, Channon Christian, to watch. An even more cruel fate awaited her!
Where be the Revs Al and Jesse? Are they providing counsel and help to the families of the victims?

By Matthew Sheffield | May 15, 2007 - 08:16 ET The sudden force that the liberal press brought to bear on the falsely accused Duke lacrosse team has been curiously absent on a much more grisly crime committed against a white couple by a group of black youths.
I saw this first on newsbusters.org and verified it on Snops
Is Snops like Snopes?
I spell it Schnapps
What is this “Snops” you’re taking about”
Is there any good reason why this was not on national news? I can’t think of one.
Horrible!! Sounds like these scumbags must’ve studied terrorists’ torture techniques. Too bad they can’t be brought to the woods and just plain shot! Uh—Jesse, Al??? Anyone, anyone? Oh, that’s right, Frick and Frack are too busy going to places like Jena, La. and defending black kids with criminal records. Trashing up a small town with water bottles and food wrappers provided by the Red Cross, no less.
Like I’ve been saying... The only justice is vigilante justice.
WHERE IS THE SUCK UP LIBERAL MEDIA? WHERE IS AL SHARPTON OR JESSE JACKSON? COWARDS ALL OF THEM! HYPOCRITES ALL OF THEM! I SAY WE BOYCOTT EVERY STATION AND THIER SPONSORS FOR THIS ACT OF COWARDESS! This shows you who’s side they are on. and we, the suckers continue to watch thier despicable programing and patronize thier sponsors. We are the fools!
If I’m not mistaken the prosecutor in this case is not going to charge the defendants with a hate crime charge because they were friends with some white people.
I’ll have Snops brand Schnapps, please. :)
I’ve been following this for months. Je$$e Jack$on has been busy with more important items. He can’t pad his pocket with this terrible crime - it’s real.
There were about 4 or 5 copies of this post back in May
It won’t get reported, because there weren’t any tapes to destroy and by the way just look at those white kids! ! Do they or don’t they look suspicious.... just who wears a baseball cap that way and look at her hair it ain’t got no weave, she must be an odd ball.(/s). In all seriousness, if these ‘’people’’ are found guilty, they should be water boarded for an hour at least each day till they get to meet the devil
Don’t focus on the article, shoot the dyslexic messenger!
After all these earys I thought you know by now, I am crushed you still don’t recognized em!
You are welcome!:)
I recall that this murder was covered by the media. I have seen these photos before.
Here is one article:
George Geovonni “Detroit” Thomas, 27, faces a total of 46 charges. Thomas was indicted on 16 counts of felony murder growing out of the rape, robbery, kidnapping, and theft of Christian and Newsom, 2 counts of premeditated murder, 2 counts of especially aggravated robbery, 4 counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, 20 counts of aggravated rape, and 2 counts of theft.
Lemaricus Devall “Slim” Davidson, 25, (b. June 13, 1981) faces the same 46 charges as Thomas. Davidson had also completed serving a five-year sentence in Tennessee on a previous felony conviction for carjacking and aggravated robbery on August 5, 2006.
Letalvis “Rome” Cobbins, 24, (b. December 20, 1982) also faces the same 46 charges as Thomas. In 2003, Cobbins was convicted of third-degree attempted robbery in New York state. He and Davidson are brothers.
Vanessa Coleman, 18, was arrested by police in Lebanon, Kentucky. She faces 40 Tennessee state charges. Coleman was indicted on 12 counts of felony murder growing out of the rape, robbery, kidnapping, and theft of Christian and Newsom, 1 count of premeditated murder (of Christian only), 1 count of especially aggravated robbery (of Newsom only), 4 counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, 20 counts of aggravated rape, and 2 counts of theft.
Further, Eric DeWayne “E” Boyd, 34, was arrested in connection with the fatal carjacking, though not indicted by the Knox County grand jury. Still, Boyd is charged in federal court as an accessory after the fact for helping the suspects evade the police. Later, Boyd was accused by Thomas and Cobbins of rape and murder, and a search warrant was obtained for his DNA. The accusations have not resulted in charges.
The four suspects indicted in Knox County will be tried separately, at trials scheduled between May and August of 2008. Davidson has also been indicted for a second robbery which was committed after the murders. District Attorney Randy Nichols announced in December of 2007 that the state would be seeking the death penalty for Cobbins if convicted.
Boycott the lying MSM. They are nothing but a propaganda outlet for the DNC and ACLU.
I make typos all the time. :)
I’m pretty darn sure that I saw this story on FoxNews since that is the only TV news that I watch and I have seen coverage of the story. Granted, there was not wall-to-wall-Natalee-Holloway-type coverage, but the story was reported. There is not a great wail of outrage because every time something happens to white folks, we are not out in the street marching and shouting ‘no justice no peace’. If we did, it would probably get some coverage.
The libs have made it a hate crime to dislike a black.....if for some reason and more often than not per media info you choose too your a racist Me I hate(sorry sister Eleanor Marie),these black bastards....
Good term”black out”
You mean our media but not the nation media that most of America sees.
wasn’t this the Knoxville murders? I did read about it in several media venues
||Do you use a sourdough starter?|
People who think this needs to be trumpeted far and wide.
I made a point of making fun of them personally, and enjoyed it immensely. There are few lolcows more worthy of milking than overweight, out of work Klan wannabes from New Jersey.
They left after an hour or two of looking like retards and being ignored by everyone except the hecklers.
dur hur hur, clever.
Burn them alive!
I think there is a good reason this story is not on national news-it would exacerbate already existing racial tensions and allow nuts on the lunatic white racist fringe to come out of the closet and blast blacks as a group.
Same reason why I am not in favor of all the hype about the Jena Six and related cases that give the Left and agitators like Sharpton and Jackson fuel to stir up discontent among blacks.
The suspects in this case in Tennesseee deserve a quick trip to the electic chair if convicted.NOT because their victims were white,however.They should get the same sentence if their victims had been two shady crack fiends or two illegal aliens.
But it really only got about as much coverage as the discovery of a noose would get, or an anti-black racial slur found on the inside of a bathroom stall would get. Once they ran a couple of stories on the Knoxville horror, it was back to PC business as usual.
BS...it’s a dicusting story and it would have made excellant bloody news for the media vultures. The media is a political arm. Why do people not get this yet?
Then Hang them
You call that MEDIA COVERAGE???
True,and personally I try to exclude many of these gruesome stories from my viewing and reading.It injects an element of ugliness into my life I plain don’t need right now.
Related to that is the story about the pro-life protestors showing pictures of aborted fetuses.I am VERY anti-abortion but why subject people to such horrid photos?You should be opposed to abortion on an INTELLECTUAL level,not forced to see nightmarish pictures like the ones being displayed on the signs.
I have way too many nightmares as it is.
If the press refuses to cover black-on-white crimes because they fear it would encourage white extremists, then why do they report white-on-black crimes (even dubious ones) with such gusto?
If the press is merely trying to maintain racial calm, then they should downplay all cross-racial crimes. Instead, they generally ignore black-on-white crimes. But white-on-black crimes are hyped at hysterical levels. Even fake ones (Duke LaCrosse) get huge coverage. Even insignificant ones (noose found hanging in a warehouse) are milked for all they’re worth.
Good grief, we're still getting coverage of the Natalee story = and no one even knows who did what to her...
Here we know = all the horrific details and the who's - and there is a deafening silence
What do you want? A made for TV movie? A video game? A musical? What?
Well..I'm a strong American girl, of the stock that forged the nation. Maybe I can view them for you and give you a report if you think you can't take it. (You bet...I'm sick of this)
I know this story pretty well. Savages. The MSM are dogs.
I just bumped your search on gretawire.com
And you remember every day of the trials of these animals that was televised for weeks on end, also, right?
Remember this one folks......?
yes. I have family in Knoxville.
