I was content with #9’s logical one-two punch delivered about the head, throat, and abdomen of the Knoxville News Sentinel’s Jack Lair (Online Editor) in regards to the media coverage given to the Christian/Newsom murders. Now Sweetness & Light points out the increasingly defensive stance of the Associated Press:
Bloggers say media coverage is unequal
Postings claim news outlets refuse to cover case of crime against whites by blacks.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – In a powerful demonstration of the way the Internet has opened up the mainstream media to intensive second-guessing, bloggers are charging that news outlets have ignored the rape and murder of a young Knoxville couple because of the racial implications of the story.
The two victims were white; the five defendants are black.
The critics include mainstream conservatives, such as the National Review, and white supremacists. They have drawn comparisons to the Duke lacrosse rape case and wondered why the killings of Channon Christian, a 21-year-old University of Tennessee student, and her 23-year-old boyfriend Christopher Newsom are not getting the same attention from what the bloggers regard sneeringly as the liberal media.
“Oh, that’s right, the victims were WHITE!” several conservative blogs have observed.
Local media in Knoxville have covered developments in the carjacking case since the bodies were found, and The Associated Press transmitted stories nationally.
You’d do well to find a baked potato as loaded as those few paragraphs from the AP. National Review and White Supremacists lumped together like so much sour cream and chives. Alleged direct quotes from the nebulous “several conservative blogs” who don’t warrant mentioning by name. And, of course, the defining down of what happened to just “the carjacking case”.
Somebody’s car got stolen. Move along, nothing to see here.
A 46-count indictment was ladled out like so much judicial au jus against the participants of one of the most disgusting hate crimes in US history and the Associated Press is determined to toss this story in the trash as the culprits did to the body of Channon Christian. Instead of liquid cleanser, they seek to use the power of the press to cleanse our mouths of their politically correct DNA evidence.
How well do you have to know someone to commit a hate crime? A day, a week, a year? Really.
The truth will come out. It is a testament to the new media that the Accomplice Press will not be the ones delivering it.
For the record, anyone visiting this post past the original publish date would do well to note that the fraudulent commenter going by the name “Nicholas Stix”, among many others, is simply a white supremacist provocateur who got completely fucking P3WND.Â
