Norfolk Virginian Pilot Newspaper Ignores Racist “Trayvon Retaliation” Beating of Its Reporters

Quite an interesting tidbit from JustOneMinute:

A Paper Of Cowards

Drudge links to a Virginian-Pilot editorial piece about a beating in Norfolk, VA experienced by two of their own reporters two weeks ago, but he misses the Obama connection that may explain the delay in their reporting.

Per the Pilot a mob of “at least 100” black youths beat up two white reporters, who missed a week of work as a result. One of them found this exchange on Twitter the next day:

“I feel for the white man who got beat up at the light,” wrote one person.

“I don’t,” wrote another, indicating laughter. “(do it for trayvon martin)”

DaTechGuy notes that the Pilot had not stinted in their prior coverge [sic] of the Martin shooting. So why so coy now?

Let me continue to bury my lead while I reprise the hand-wringing at the VP:

In this case, editors hesitated to assign a story about their own employees. Would it seem like the paper treated its employees differently from other crime victims?

Oh, please. Left unmentioned – it was just a few weeks earlier (last March 30) that Maurice Jones, the publisher of the Virginian-Pilot was finally confirmed as Obama’s Deputy Secretary of HUD after a six month wait.


Hmm…  Kind of sheds a whole new light on the incident, wouldn’t you say?

    I’m in a state of shock the Rev. Al Sharkton stated that it was impossible for any black person to be racist.

  2. […] in this story, their claimed reasoning may well qualify. It’s also worth pointing out, as one blog observed, one month earlier, the U.S. Senate approved the appointment of former Pilot publisher, Maurice […]

    Now white follks are getting beat and you see ignorant people saying “do it for trayvon” News flash Zimmerman is mexican. So go to mexico and start some shit with them

    • Roy Mandina Says:

      Tell me what you’re really saying. Did these “white” reporters deserve to get beaten? Do you have any idea how much black on white crime goes unmentioned and never is referred to as a hate crime? Is that okay with you?

  4. joshua Says:

    you dont have to put my name in quoations. Its my real name and regardless he aint white you jackass

    • Okay, you two. Settle down. No reason to let the fur fly. You both are on the same page.


    • Actually Joshua, he is half white. But all the same, black kids have to understand that going around kicking the crap outta white people who had nothing to do with the incident is going to do nothing for them except show their own ignorance. I live rather close to where this beating accured, and I say the same thing to you gus here that I said to my husband, the next time something like this happens, or happens to me anyway, someone needs to get run over with whatever vehicle they happen to be driving. Mine would be a ford truck or a minivan, so people would be going down!!!! Now what would happen if a bunch of white folks retaliated because of the is? Would that be pointed out as a racially fukled incident?

  5. Richie Says:

    What happened in Norfolk Virginia is racist and what Zimmerman did should not make it right for a group of one race attack a nother and expect for it to be okay. Also The worst part about it is that the media is trying to avoid it. If it was the other way around and it was white on black it would be on all the major news stations. If people don’t believe me then just turn your tv on.

    very true, and very sad!

    Actually roy…

    Neither race. Black or White deserve to beat the s*** out of each other.

    I was commenting on the ignorance of a pervious commentor accusing zimmerman of being mexican. He isnt… he’s mixed race. And no being of mixed race doesnt matter. He killed a black teen with a gun and from the news stories online it seems to me that the area they live in is still a hotbed of race war bulls***.

    No I dont know how much crime happens against whites because of other races or ethnic groups. I dont spend my time worrying about that. Because I dont put myself or my family into a situation that requires me to fight off gangstas or other nutters because of my race.

  8. Hannah Myers Says:

    Time to put the monkeys back in the cages, the human experiment is over, they can not coexist….

  9. Joe Says:

    You people in Norfolk should cancel your subscription to this newspaper. They don’t seem worthy enough to stay in business.

  10. johnny Says:

    did everyone forget, we are all from the same one God

  11. johnny Says:

    stop all Human on Human crime
