There’s no “rush to judgment” in this case. It’s just a matter of believing what one wants to believe. The “belief” was already set and it only takes an event which can be interpreted as prejudice to trigger outrage. Take the Twana Brawley matter as an example.
Funny they never mention their own tendency to judge first.
it seems to me that over the past few days CNN has grown a conscience and a brain and has decided to stop participating in this exercise in black racism.
“The Miami Herald reported that in the gated community in which Zimmerman patrolled”
MSM, just stop with the “gated community” stuff.
Just. Stop. It.
The community inside the gates is a small complex of condos, with the average price around $1000,000. Many of the units run less than $80,000.
This is NOT a rich “gated community” like the media tries to spin it.
The use of “gated community” is code by the MSM and liberals for elite, rich and white. . .in other words, racist.
Sorry, Tres Von, you're going to be thrown under a bus. Only a few short days ago, you were a young boy. Now, you're a young man. By the time all the facts come out, even CNN might be saying "delinquent" or "young criminal."
That would be $100,000. . .
Dollars to doughnuts the threat of lawsuits is what is causing some of the media to turn around. The blatant lynchmob journalism has been breathtaking, I hope the settlements are also breathtaking. There has already been one settlement already in McClain v Lee, more certainly to follow, most out of court.
When the Rev Jackson says that “killing us is big business” he means that it’s big business for him....
re: A random act of journalism from CNN.
Not exactly. The author is William J Bennett, a conservative. So, in the sense that CNN actually allowed a conservative to author a commentary on their site, yes it is a big surprise.
No. A syndicated editorial from Bill Bennett.
Jackson said that Martin's death shows how "blacks are under attack" and "targeting, arresting, convicting blacks and ultimately killing us is big business." Apart from the obvious incendiary nature of such comments, what in heaven's name could Jackson mean?
a despicable lie that is completely backwards. Reality--Whites are huge multitudes more in danger of being victimized by blacks than the other way around.
This might explain it. No liberal will admit they, "acted stupidly"
Holy Cow! Has CNN swerved into the truth? Unbelievable! Journalists acting like...er well, journalists. This won’t last long...
how does a teenager with drug paraphernalia have gold teeth and expensive tats? hmmmm???????
It’s a column by William J. Bennett, the conservative author.
CNN’s journalistic integrity remains intact [ Do I REALLY need a sarcasm tag?].
So it’s wrong to call an area with access controlled by gates a “gated community” based on property values???
It’s a community with access controlled by gates... W T F do you call that????
Note that the author is former Reagan cabinet member Bill Bennett. I’m sure CNN will find space to denounce him as a racist bigot somewhere.
The drive-by media - ever advancing the “innocent until proven guilty” assertion - as long as it advances Obama.
