When NBC's "Today" show played the audio of George Zimmerman's call to a Sanford, Fla., police dispatcher about Trayvon Martin, the editors made him appear to be a racist who says: "This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black." What Zimmerman actually said was: "This guy looks like he's up to no good or he's on drugs or something. It's raining, and he's just walking around, looking about." The 911 officer responded by asking, "OK, and this guy -- is he black, white or Hispanic?" Zimmerman replied, "He looks black." NBC says it's investigating the doctoring of the audio, but there's nothing to investigate; its objective was to inflame passions.
In his Associated Press article titled "Old photos may be deceptive in Fla. shooting case," Matt Sedensky pointed out that the photos carried by the major media were several years old and showed Zimmerman looking fat and mean and Martin looking like a sweet young kid.
Jesse Jackson told the Los Angeles Times that "blacks are under attack" and that "targeting, arresting, convicting blacks and ultimately killing us is big business," adding that Martin is "a martyr." President Barack Obama chimed in by saying, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."
Let's look at some non-news cases. On March 14 in Tulsa, Okla., a white couple suffered a home invasion by Tyrone Woodfork, a 20-year-old black man. Ninety-year-old Bob Strait suffered a broken jaw and broken ribs in the attack. His 85-year-old wife, Nancy, was sexually assaulted and battered to death, ending their 65-year marriage.
On March 4, two black Kansas City, Mo., youths doused a 13-year-old boy in gasoline and set him on fire, telling him, "You get what you deserve, white boy." Last summer, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel ordered an emergency shutdown of the beaches in Chicago because mobs of blacks were terrorizing white families.
Several years ago, in Knoxville, Tenn., a young white couple was kidnapped by four blacks. The girl was forced to witness her boyfriend's rape, torture and subsequent murder before she was raped, tortured and murdered. Before disposing of her body, the three men and one woman poured bleach or some other cleaning agent down her throat in an effort to destroy DNA evidence. A jury found the four guilty, and they were sentenced, but because of the judge's drug use, a retrial is being considered.
None of those black-on-white atrocities made anywhere near the news that the Trayvon Martin case made, and it's deliberate. Editors for the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune admitted to deliberately censoring information about black crime for political reasons, in an effort to "guard against subjecting an entire group of people to suspicion."
One doesn't have to be a liberal, conservative, Democrat or Republican to see the danger posed by America's race hustlers, who are stacking up piles of combustible racial kindling and ready for a racial arsonist to set it ablaze. Recruiters for white hate groups must love President Obama's demagoguery in saying that a son of his would look like Trayvon but not saying that Melissa Coon's 13-year-old son, who was set on fire, could have looked like a son of his. After all, the president is just as much white as he is black.
Even if the president and his liberal allies in the media and assorted civil rights hustlers don't care much about blacks murdering whites, what about blacks murdering blacks? During a mid-March weekend in Chicago, 49 people were shot, 10 fatally, including a 6-year-old black girl, making for more than 100 murders this year. Philadelphia isn't far behind, with murder clipping along at one a day since the beginning of 2012. Have we heard Obama make a statement about this carnage or that most homicide victims are black and that their murderers are black? No, and we won't, because black-on-black crime, like black-on-white crime, does not fit the liberal narrative of the continuing problem of white racism.
“We [the media] determine whats news and whats not!” - Dan Rather to Larry Ellison
Feral inner city youth are the lefts stormtroopers - taxpayers are expected to acquiesce as the State holds them by the nose while the stormtroopers kick their arse.
Sorry, Mr. Williams, but most liberals and Democrats cheer on the race hustlers' demagogery, as it is an integral part of their politics.
Seriously, does anyone have any idea what their goals are?
Why would the media want to foment a race war?
They might be just trying to stir things up for 0bama’s advantage, but this is playing with fire in the extreme.
But that is little consolation as they are pouring gasoline around the civic institutions of this country.
What the left is doing now has its parallells in world history and it has never ended well.
Maybe there's still something special about this country & we'll avoid the same extreme consequences.
“Let’s look at some non-news cases. On March 14 in Tulsa, Okla., a white couple suffered a home invasion by Tyrone Woodfork, a 20-year-old black man.

Stark madness by the criminal and the media. There is no difference between them. I still can’t forget what happened to two beautiful, white coeds a couple of years ago. The 22-year old student body president of the University of North Carolina, Eve Carson, and Lauren Burk, 18, a freshman student at Auburn. Both killed by blacks, possibly gang members. Nobody took to the streets. Another time in history, the entire town would have taken to the streets.
Did anyone listen to the tail end of the press conference with Zimmerman’s former attorney yesterday? He laid out the whole case. Credible.
and of course if the perp is white and the victim is black they deliberately play it up as much as possible for political reasons in an effort to "subject the entire white race to suspicion"
truth is there are 8 times as many crimes where blacks are the criminals and whites are the victims than vice versa. when that truth is revealed, it becomes abundantly clear who should fear whom.

Now back in the olden days before 1950, if this happened a section of the city would burn down and (comment removed before the mods catch it)..but then it would be safe to walk the streets again for years.
civil rights hustlers don’t care much about blacks murdering whites.
I do wish Townhall would have included the names of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom so people could look up this absolutely sickening and horrendous crime that has gone very largely unreported. I’ll wager that more people found out about it from Free Republic than any other news source combined.
The 13 year old boy is a minor, and I believe lived, so I wouldn’t include his name. Though the crime does need to be included in the discussion about so called ‘hate crimes’
I would suggest that it's because they are Marxists, if not very smart ones, and they imagine that an uprising of the non-workers would usher in a glorious welfare paradise in which they - the media "elites" and those like them - would live in luxury, presiding with total authority over the "equality" of all those other losers. (It almost looks like I'm describing "The Hunger Games" here ;-).
A quick reading of a few unbiased history texts would reveal the substantial statistical likelihood of any individual journalist's ending up dead or in jail until he rots (see Russia, Cuba), but they don't read.
Every leftist, from the president down to the hemp-stinkinest 4th year junior college “liberal”,
thinks that HE will be holding the whip instead of
slaving under its lash.

Who knows, maybe the grandchildren of those editors will reap what their grandfathers have sown... I wouldn't wish it on them - but karma's a bitch...
To rephrase your tagline, the difference between a progressive and a Stalinist is that the latter has the power to do what he wants, while the former just wishes he did.
In David Horowitz’s “Radical Son,” the book that just added a new paradigm to my worldview, Mr. Horowitz mentioned the percentage of the first generation of Bolsheviks who were dead of non-natural causes with 20 years ... it was in the 80-90% range. They turn on each other *immediately*, and the wimpy homos, like most of the media, are the first to drop, because they’re so totally expendable.
Katie Couric, Mika Brezhinski, Soledad O’Brien, et al, don’t want to think about it, but they’ll get the same treatment as Channon Christian if their “oppressed minority” really cuts loose. Mr. Horowitz gave several examples.
I like it.
