If any MSM members would just happen on this site, I would say to them, this is why you never jump the gun and should be very cautious in how you present information, as you know it, at the time.
The oversaturation of this story before DNA evidence had been made public, was just one more indication that dirty laundry and public opinion manipulation has become a normal everyday media objective. And yes, I believe it was racial.
The targets were rich white kids that probably came from privileged families, playing a sport that very few people care about. A black stripper claims she was raped by some of them and automatically the leftist dominated media, have these horrible heathens tried and convicted. Because of injustices that go back well over a century ago, the noble and gallant knights of the biased press must somehow draw attention to it by the further inflammation of an already existing sore.
Now before you go ballistic on me, Mr./Ms. MSM Person (who just happened on my site), I fully understand that this may not be the only evidence; and by not being privy to it, I know that I cannot assume that they are 100% innocent. And if they are guilty, I want them prosecuted and punished, period. Privilege or no privilege, I show no favoritism, as those that read me regularly can attest. But, that isn't the real point here, and I think you know it.
Bloodthirsty and hungry for dirt are two descriptions I would assign to you, because you have shanghaied and compromised what little journalistic integrity, you may have ever had. So much so that you have jumped on any class or race warfare issue, without investigating, without waiting for results of key evidence, such as DNA; and have done it before you formulate your biased slants and begin your subtle manipulation process, on the American people.
I guess there's nothing like a Tuwanna Brawley style case when the news is slow, after you have beat other negative stories to death. I guess you might as well cause more racial tensions, than there already are; I know it must a living hell to be bored with such an "important" job as yours. Keep feeding the fire and the frenzy, and when it backfires on you, at least have the guts to accept the responsibility. You can even confess here, if you wish. I won't tell anyone.
