Skip to comments.Why Autumn’s murder wasn’t ‘news’
Posted on 08/19/2013 4:34:11 PM PDT by SMGFan
Whats your sense of a big TV news story? Might this qualify?:
Two teen boys lure a 12-year-old girl to their home under the guise that they want to trade bicycle parts. When the girl arrives, shes strangled to death, her body thrown in a Dumpster, her new bicycle stolen.
That would qualify, no? Even if it happened in Arkansas or Michigan, wed know about it. And if it had happened around here? Yow! Both local and national news media would be all over it, yes?
Well, it did happen around here, in October, in Gloucester County, NJ, a 90-minute ride from Manhattan. The victim was Autumn Pasquale. This month in court, 16-year-old Justin Robinson confessed to the murder while his year-older brother and accused accomplice, Dante, still faces murder charges.
Quite a story, eh?
But Ill bet you didnt even know, until now, about the murder of 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale. I watch lots of TV news, listen to lots of radio news, national and local. Not once did I see or hear anything about her murder, allegedly by two teen boys, for, good grief, her bicycle.
You see, in the medias once noble, right-headed, fair-minded quest to condemn racial inequality, that quest has become corrupted by race; it has become twisted, hideously unbalanced.
There is no question in my gut, heart and head that Autumn Pasquales murder became a make-it-go-away, non-story because she was white and her alleged killers are black.

Earlier this month, first time mentioned here?
I sure as hell heard about it
Black on white crime doesn’t exist according to the liberal narrative.
Beck again ???
Is this another of his “You didnt hear about this before because I didnt know this before and now youre learning about it for the first time from wonderful me” ???
Just like he said about the rape and murders of Christian and Channon in Knoxville back in 2007 ???
One word: mau mau
try reading anywhere on national news about the Aussie shot to death while jogging....except maybe it won’t make the big time news because it featured a white kid and not one but TWO black “boys”....
Once again, the NYP has skated off onto REALLY THIN ICE!
Ballsy, just ballsy.
Let’s see who attacks them first.
Didn't see Beck mentioned in this story.
What's your beef?
Maybe he's a little LATE to the table. But who in hell else is putting this stuff out there?
I got a lot to beef about with this Beck clown. Especially back 20 years ago when guys like me were trying to bring this stuff to light, and guys like Beck were ridiculing, laughing and insulting us.
Hey Beck, I went and put on my TIN FOIL EFFIN HAT you stupid white s!!!!. And all I found were idiots like you.
Now, all I hear is: "But WHOOO KKNEEEEWWW, OH!! JUST WHOOO KKNEEEEWWW, THIS IS SO JUST NEW NEWS TO ME!!!
Dumb effers all.
YO BECK, ET AL, YOU ARE 20 YEARS TOO LATE TO THIS PARTY!
Stupid white people strike again. Right Beck?
I MAY forgive, but I will NOT forget. This sh!!! is on you, BRO.
Par for the course for the socialist democratic frauds infested in the MSM. Reverse the crime. Three whities killed a young black girl and you would see all hell break loose. Sharpton and Jackson would be camped out with search lights calling in the Occupy Outhouse crowd.
I heard and read about it too...
There are all kinds of stories that get buried. Ever heard of that wedding planner guy, David Tutera of “My Fair Weddings”? He and his “husband” have decided to “divorce” because of Tutera’s need to bring a 3rd person in for sex parties. Evidently his “husband” is tired of Tutera’s perversion. Problem is, they have a surrogate pregnant with twins. Soooo, is one of these sexual deviants going to get custody of 2 innocent babies? Should 2 sexual deviants get to legally pay a surrogate have their babies? Notice how all of this has been buried by the media?
And that’s a sad truth.
At some point, whitey will revert to those demons that black grannies told their siblings were under their beds, waiting to devour them.
Wonder how they’ll feel then?
Black on white crime: Dog bites man.
White on black crime: Man bites dog.
White kills black in self defense: A new Holocaust erupts.
This makes the case for 0bama and Holder’s FORCED RACIAL INTEGRATION in neighborhoods nationwide, NOT.
W O W. I have watched his show, thought it charming and silly. Had no idea of his boyfriend - this baby thing is horrifying.
How does the media deal with a story where an Australian baseball hopeful is gunned down by black teens in Oklahoma for no apparent reason? They bury the story!
Perhaps because it was Black on White it did not fit the main stream media’s paradigm? Perhaps it did not advance the perpetual victimhood that the main stream media portrays Blacks as? Perhaps Jessie and Al could not make any money from it? Perhaps the main stream media just did not give a damn since the victim was a White child?
Events like this are not crimes. They are examples of cultural differences which we, of course, must respect.
He doesn't even read the newspaper that he works for.
Of course the media reports these stories - but theres no justification for the difference in the manner & intensity of their coverage for this one compared to others they feel buttress their obvious political agenda.
It sounds like a broken record around FR, but the writer is correct and its unusual to see it in a mainstream publication.
It exists but doesn’t matter. It’s a case of justified black rage against Whitey.
No, the while story was discussed on FR right after it happened:
There appear to have been a bunch of other articles posted as well.
There were lots of other articles but I purposely selected ones from the time the murderers were identified to show that the idea that the story was not covered by major media is BS.
It appears to be true that is was covered more in the media markets surrounding New Jersey (i.e. NY and Philadelphia).
Undoubtedly it is also true that the media don't exactly play up the racial angle, but history shows that doing so might be irresponsible. The perpetrators were pictured in the news and their race might also be deduced from their names.
That is the point.
