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?Explore posts in the same categories: Abuse of Power, Media Bias, Obama Sucks, politics, Racists
