Gee, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I would say the NY Times (also known as bird-cage liner) doesn’t exactly have the best “track-record” for unbiased coverage.
George W. and Laura Bush were cropped out of a photo of a Selma Anniversary March over the weekend, in the New York Times.
The NYT released an editorial denying that there was anything untowards about the “cropping” of the photo. I do agree, that it was a wide photo, but are they not capable of posting more than one photo if they couldn’t catch the most notable participants in one?
Am I correct to be suspicious? It has come out that the “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” mantra so widely disseminated by the media was just a big, fat, juicy LIE.
In case you haven’t gotten the “411”, the media is in lock-step with out divisive Administration, so we can’t be “slackers” and have our “news” spoon-fed to us by the mainstream media. We must search, and dig, and do our research. The sad thing is, is that most people are too lazy to do that.
Mediaite: Following the release of a Justice Department report concluding insufficient evidence to charge Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson for civil rights violation in the shooting death of Michael Brown, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly got into a heated argument with guests Wednesday night over what she views are unfair treatment of Wilson by the court of public opinion.
Kelly got into it with Democratic strategist Mark Hannah over suggestions that the protests that engulfed that Missouri city were not prompted by the narrative of “hands up, don’t shoot” that became a rallying cry for Brown’s cause but has since been called into question. While Hannah said the protests were a result of the “perception” of a racist police force, as borne out by the DOJ’s investigation, Kelly argued it was more about Al Sharpton “out there stoking the fires.”
On the pattern of racially-biased policing in Ferguson, Kelly asked, “That justifies this, Mark? What we saw, all these folks with their ‘hands up, don’t shoot,’ which did not happen!”
