Racial Bias in the Media - Just how bad is it?

Here's a superb example:

Pat Mahaney, ever heard of him?

(CBS) CINCINNATI, Ohio - Police say a pack of Ohio teens, ages 13 to 14, beat a 45-year-old man into unconscious because they were bored.
Pat Mahaney was walking home from a convenience store Saturday when he was hit from behind. Although Mahaney was knocked unconscious immediately, the beating apparently continued with the teens punching and kicking the helpless man.

Police reportedly said the boys, when taken in for questioning, admitted Mahaney had done nothing wrong. They said they only stopped the attacking the North College hill resident when a neighbor threatened to call police.
A police reports says the teens attacked 45-year-old man because they "were just bored and were looking for something to do," the Enquirer reports.
The young teens face charges of aggravated riot and felonious assault, the Enquirer reports. They are scheduled to be in court Aug. 24.

Compared to the vilification of Zimmerman, I find the lack of media interest utterly nauseating.

Without using profanity and staying on point, who can reasonably explain this?

Re: Racial Bias in the Media - Just how bad is it?

I'd call it more of a liberal/corporate/big government bias than a racial bias.

When there's a slant to the national news, it seems to me to always be one of the three.

In this case, and seeing the suspects in this case are black Pat Mahaney who was attacked by 6 black teens in August of 2012 because they were bored died. So can these 6 be tried for murder now? , I guess you're referring to race not being cited much as a factor here? I'd ascribe that not so much racial as liberal "for a cause", IMO. The "cause being" the racial divide the national media stirred up in the Zimmerman trial, and how groups like MSNBC want to portray it, which is kinda racial I guess.

Re: Racial Bias in the Media - Just how bad is it?

most neo-conservatives who present this same kind of argument think it is because the main stream media (who are controlled by communist progressives) are overly sensitive to even remotely "offending" a black person that they selective choose only stories that will appeal to the white person's guilt of our country's violent racial transgression and not offend anyone but white people.

i.e neo-conservatives saying that cheerios commercial was yet another example of main stream media forcing their progressive diversity agenda on them and that they will ban buying cheerios.

neo-conservatives also think home alarm system commercials with a white intruder is also the progressive MSM (main stream media) way of bowing to any perceived slight against black people if they made the intruder black.

or a car insurance commercial where a white person's car is damaged on the side of the road and a black insurance man comes to the rescue.

rat - go to theblaze (glenn beck's news website) and read any comment section on any article and see where the conversation quickly and ultimately goes. interesting case study for undercover racists pretending their comments are political in nature.

you will know you are on the right site when you see ads for dehydrated food for your armaggedon bunker and pictures of Obama in a china military motiffe.


but to answer your question of just how bad is it?

my answer - depends how you view the world. me personally, i see it far more on fox or other conservative outlets.

Re: Racial Bias in the Media - Just how bad is it?

I see advertising cited, but not news reports, or lack thereof.

No, I don't go to Fox or TheBlaze but I am interested in why I don't see much in the way of equal and opposite when it comes to violent crimes.

I do favor al Jazeera.

Do it! Check out Fox and Msnbc. The contrast is amazing, in what they each dont talk about but the other does.

Re: Racial Bias in the Media - Just how bad is it?

I'd say it was pretty bad. Here, you even have Yahoo asking ..."Is this the next Trayvon Martin case?"

76-year-old man to stand trial in shooting death of 13-year-old boy


The two situations are nothing alike. Not even remotely close except the fact that a black kid was killed by a "white" guy.

Re: Racial Bias in the Media - Just how bad is it?

The media has a clear racial bias. It feeds in to stereotypes. You ought to see the crimes white men do everyday. Child porn , child porn, child porn! Never see it on the 6 oclock news though. Black boy steals candy bar, font page. Some 13 and 14 year old black kids beat up an old guy. It's unfortunate he later died. How many times have these kids called the authorities to report fake crimes by 46 year old white men. Zimmerman called 100 times no one wa severy arrested. Did he ever pause and say hmm some of these black guys may be just walking home. No he is a psycho path, he assumed they all must have got away, all 100. He foreshadowed what he did to Martin. He was carrying around a gun like he in in a dangerous area. The only person killed in his area was killed by him. Psycho. That is how the kiling of the 13 year old matches to the Zimmerman killing. False accusations of criminal activity, paranoid of black men, can't win a fair fight, shooting an unarmed teenager. The reason for packing is to kill the black male, an existential threat in a psychopath's mind.

What a sick twisted place your mind is. Ah well, I guess hate can keep you warm.

P.S. - Stick to being monosyllabic. Big words apparently trip you up.

... and JJ jumps on the hate crime wagon immediately. Can we not denigrate the horrific nature of the act itself by asserting that the reason we should really despise it is b/c it involves race?

If your going to make a stupid post at least get your facts correct. Zimmerman call the police 46 times over 8 yrs. That's less then 6 times a year as a neighbor hood watch guy.

Have you ever look at the crime rate in that area.

"With a crime rate of 69 per one thousand residents, Sanford has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes - from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One's chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 14. Within Florida, more than 94% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Sanford."

Wow look at FD bringing facts and statistics into an emotional argument.

(Borat voice): mmmm, very nice!

I think the way some politically aligned media reports the news do so in a manner that will bring them the most attention. It's unfortunate but a fact of life in today's society. And that's a big reason why I don't tend to pay too much attention to them, I mean I get my news from MSNBC but I don't really tend to listen to their opinion pieces, if it's anything big there's usually some angle they don't cover for a specific reason. If you are to form a reasonable opinion on a big story you really have to do your own homework these days to come to your own conclusions.

Sadly, very few people are willing to make an effort.

I did notice that yesterday's 'Welcome to the NFL, Rookie' on NFL Channel painted Luck in a far more positive light than RGIII AND he got 37 seconds more air time. Even the lighting on the interview shots were darker and more menacing.

Because they gave RGIII so much air time last year they are trying to cover their liberal bias by talking up the Luck this year.

Trayvon contributed to his own death by accidentally going to the store while George was prowling with his gun. Coming home from the store is contributing to your own death?
