A white TV reporter who voiced his opinions about black families and relations with police during a segment about a fatal police shooting said Tuesday he was suspended from his station and won't return.

Wasn’t Eric Holder calling us all cowards for not having a discussion on race? BTW, in the civilian large corporation world I can’t imagine a faster way of getting fired that does not involve setting the place on fire.
Lesson to be learned.... Don’t say anything about a certain protected class of people even though it’s 100% true.
PC is going to get a lot of people killed in the long run. You can count on it.
Tell the truth. Get fired. America, 2014.
See this reporter should have left his opinion inside himself anyway. The news segment is for the news. If he wanted to show more of the police side then give them more time and the cop killer relatives less.
Um... news agencies and reporters stick their opinions into the news all the time. They do it by choosing which stories to run and in their language describing the stories.
Probably the issue wasn't so much inserting his opinion into the story. It was more likely the overt way he did it, or the fact that he was pointing out the politically incorrect fact that kids raised without fathers don't fare as well as their peers from intact families.
Unless it comports with the liberal agenda, of course...
Our Dear Leader grew up without his father. Imagine how he would have turned out if his father were in his life all those years. /s
"Bergin said in his report that the underlying cause of an anti-police mentality is young black men growing up without fathers. "It's important to shine a light on this anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America's inner cities," Bergin said after airing the widow's comments and showing a memorial for her husband. "The underlying cause of all of this, of course, young black men growing up without fathers."
As if news reporters don’t “include” their opinions all of the time. You just can’t be clear about it.
We can thank the Left for encouraging mothers to replace fathers with a government check.
Democrats soil institutions.
I’m surprised the guy thought he could be so honest; as a member of the media, he must have known all of the rules (especially that by which media members are supposed to pretend blacks can never be perps, just victims).
Nice to see the dancing around the issue required in corporate America is also required of our media elites...
The National Association of Black Journalists' president, Bob Butler, challenged Bergin's connection between young black men growing up without fathers and anti-police sentiments and said that Bergin went beyond the standards of a news reporter by inserting his views on the storyI don't see a quote from the president of the "National Association of White Journalists". I wonder why?
“I forget the percentage of convicts who grew up without fathers in the household, but it is very high.”
It is also the # 1 indicator in whether or not someone is incarcerated during their lifetime.
This guy was fired for telling the truth in an industry where it is forbidden.
This sounds like it’s from Larry Elder’s book,
I’d imagine News 12 is going to have to hire a bunch of blacks to atone for one employee’s “sin”.
The station sucks anyway; I’ll occasionally get weather from them, but that’s it. They were being ripped apart for covering the cop-killer, who had specifically told a bystander (before killing the cop) to watch the news later; he was going to be famous.
The local unassimilated gibsmedats even made a memorial to the killer, which was torn down by unknown persons.
“As if news reporters dont include their opinions all of the time. You just cant be clear about it.”
They want you to be clear with your opinions, which are required to be the same opinions as those who control our media.
This reporter tried to have the conversation on race that Holder mentioned years ago; Holder simply meant a LECTURE on race.
My personal belief is that the Left, starting in the era of Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Margaret Sanger, believe that their philosophy is superior to the concept of worshiping God and believing in nuclear families. All of their actions back up this theory.
The truth shall set ye free. You’re free to leave a job with the MSM.
This is a war. The reporter needs to get a lucrative job offer from a more responsible news source and the station needs to be pounded by the viewers and their ratings hurt until they correct their behavior.
