Skip to comments.Victim of 'I Hate White People' Attack Dies, Will Media Finally Report Incident?
Posted on 09/10/2013 8:15:11 AM PDT by grundle
As NewsBusters reported Sunday, the national news media outside of local New York outlets has totally ignored a New York man becoming brain dead as the result of an unprovoked attack by a man that shouted "I hate white people."
The victim, 62-year-old Jeffrey Babbitt, died Monday.
Will media report it now?
At presstime, Google News and LexisNexis searches still find ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and NBC haven't done one report on this matter.
Not a single one.
CNN.com published an online piece about the issue late Sunday evening, but still hasn't reported it on-air.
CBSNews.com published an article about Babbitt's death and the attack Monday afternoon. Might that lead CBS News to finally cover this story on television?
And what about the rest of the press?
The New York Times hasn't touched this story since a 152-word article published on page 21 Saturday. Might this deserve more coverage by the Times now that Babbitt has died?
And where the heck are the Washington Post, USA Today, and other papers that have not yet shared this tragedy with their readers?
Is it really just verboten for America's media to report black on white hate crimes?

Maybe they’ll find a new reason not to call it a hate crime. Death while white?
As Josef Stalin once noted, “One death is a tragedy, a million is a statistic.”
The MSM will consider this a ‘statistic’ for their own purposes.............
No.....the MSM cant report all the black on white crime that happens because they don’t have enough time.
It’s a big story, in my editorial mind. What a huge headline they’d print if a white perp screamed “I had black people” and bashed the vic’s head in.
I’d like to have more information on the feral black who murdered Jeffrey Babbitt. Who were his friends? Did he belong to a gang, listen to gangsta’ rap? How many other white people has he hurt? Who taught him to hate?
The ironic part is if the guy who died had a gun and had killed his assailant, it’d be Trayvon all over again.
Purly annecdotal...just ask Deval Patrick!
The media can’t report the true facts of this case. It doesn’t fit the narrative of black victims of white or white Hispanic racists.
Society made him do it.
“It is important to make a further distinction here among black hatred, black racism, and Black Power. Black hatred is the black man’s strong aversion to white society. No black man living in white America can escape it...But the charge of black racism cannot be reconciled with the facts. While it is true that blacks do hate whites, black hatred is not racism. Racism, according to Webster, is ‘the assumption that psychocultural traits and capacities are determined by biological race and that races differ decisively from one another, which is usually coupled with a belief in the inherent superiority of a particular race and its rights to dominance over others.’ Where are the examples among blacks in which they sought to assert their right to dominance over others because of a belief in black superiority?...Black Power is an affirmation of the humanity of blacks in spite of white racism. It says that only blacks really know the extent of white oppression, and thus only blacks are prepared to risk all to be free.” [Black Theology and Black Power, p. 14-16] - James Hal Cone (Obama’s mentor’s mentor)
No word from the President about whether, if he had a son, he would look like the perpetrator.
Short answer: No.
“Short answer: No.”
Long answer: “When pigs fly.”
Jesse Jackson says this type of behavior is frowned upon.
Doesn’t help their agenda that “all White people are hateful racists”
It’s just whoop-azzzzz.
