The racial slurs the MSM doesn’t want to cover
Legal Insurrection ^ | 12/13/2012 | William Jacobson

Posted on 12/13/2012 7:52:12 AM PST by Lakeshark

Union protesters called hot dog vendor “Uncle Tom” and “N*gger” but you won’t hear about it in the mainstream media

I have posted numerous times about the union violence in Lansing, including punches thrown at Steven Crowder and the tearing down of the Americans for Prosperity tent even as bystanders screamed that there were people inside.

You may also have heard the story of the hot dog vendor whose equipment and supplies were deliberately destroyed by the union protesters.

But unless you read conservative blogs and websites, you have not heard that the union protesters shouted racial slurs at the man, including the N-word.

More lack of coverage from the MSM. Imagine if this had actually happened at a TEA Party event? There would have been wall to wall coverage for a month.

Heck, nothing like this ever happened and they still reported us as a bunch of racists.

I can guarantee that IF you see a story about the hot dog vender being harassed and insulted, there will be something about mitigating circumstances and/or a story about the racist conservatives.

Lehrer (PBS) began the calls for violence and cracking
heads. THE MSM is behind the violence coming
and no intention of actually honestly REPORTING it.

When the MSM reports honestly about racism, this may happen:

Everyone, including myself, needs to stop considering the MSM to be made up of independent news companies, albeit with members who happen to have a certain political bent, and fully accept them as the wholly owned subsidiary of the federal government they are.

I even remember when Pelosi and her minions walked throughta Tea Party event and she had her large gavel (sex toy to her) with her and one of the lying sacks of doo walking with them claimed he was called the N-word.
A hundred cameras around, no one else heard it, but it was grist for the Media mills for weeks.

We no longer have a Media. We have Obama’s Propaganda outlet and his lying skunk Jay Carney.

Well as long as the Democrats hold the advantage in the balance of power in Washington.

Let the Republicans gain the advantage and you will see the MSM alter their behavior dramatically.

Suddenly they will become the faithful watchdogs of the rights of the people; guarding against an intrusive government, bent on total domination.

With all those cameras running, no one ever took up Breitbart's $100,000 dollar challenge to prove the claim of racist language they made up, yet they reported it as fact for weeks.

Terrifying when you think about it........

This latest incidence of mainstream lib media malfeasance is just another in a long list of failures to cover stories that embarrass their side. The biggest sin of the media is not that they tell lies but that they hide the truth.

What you have described is:

Bias by Omission:

Ignoring facts that tend to disprove liberal or left-wing claims, or that support conservative beliefs.

To catch this kind of bias you’ll have to be knowledgeable about the particular subject. If you know the various points of view on an issue, then you’ll recognize when one side is left out. Bias by omission can occur either within a story, or over the long term as a particular news outlet reports one set of events, but not another.

To find instances of bias by omission, keep abreast of the conservative perspective on current issues. See if that perspective is included in stories on a particular event or policy. If it’s not, you may have uncovered bias by omission.

Until the republicans finally drop all pretense to being the party of smaller government and at last there really is no difference between the two major parties.

Then the MSM will embrace the GOP like they embrace individual big government RINOs.

The whole leftist media is terrifying.

It is terrifying to see this crazed clown Tingles Mathews being paid for the Sh*t he calls journalism.

It started out easy for the old media. The Democrats fudged a few figures, they gave a few bribes. But, Hey! They were for the people. The Democrats may have done a couple of shady things, but they were taking “the higher road”. They were really purer than the Republicans. If the media went after them for those trifling, barely noticeable problems, why then they wouldn’t have the time and energy to tackle those big, important issues that they really wanted to tackle like giving everyone a million dollars and stopping all illness in the world. Then, the lies became larger and the crimes became bigger. Now, the Democrats “owned” the press. The press had bought into the lie that the Democrats were only crooks to make the world a better place. Now, the press was invested in them. To cover the Democrats honestly now would show that they, the press, had been colluding with crooks. So, now, the Democrats can get people killed in Benghazi and the press has to look away. And they can never look in the mirror to see what they’ve become by becoming Democrat Shills. Their side resorts to violence and bigotry and hate, but they can’t bear to cover it. Cowards and Shills.

I'm sure the New York Times is on this story like white on rice... /s
