Jessica Chambers was burned alive in Mississippi. Assuming the killer was black, will journalists with names such as "Horowitz" and "Rubin" use this story to bring awareness of black on white crime? Will feminist organizations use this murder to highlight domestic violence? Will Obama shed a tear and state that this could have been his daughter?
A good essay from Fred Reed:
It is curious: Though I have spent a lifetime in journalism, I do not read a newspaper, not the New York Times nor the Washington Post nor the Wall Street Journal. Nor do I have television service.
Why? Because, having worked in that restaurant, I know better than to eat there. The foregoing media are quasi-governmental organs, predictably predictable and predictably dishonest. The truth is not in them.
