Today’s “Read the Whole Thing”.
I am a newspaper editor somewhere in America. For reasons that will become obvious, I am not able to reveal my real name. (…)
…a more sophisticated reading of “bias,” coupled with actual knowledge of what occurs in a newsroom, shows that reporters and editors needn’t orchestrate the news consciously, story by story, to exclude unwelcome facts. Their leftist worldview precludes contradictory ideas. It isn’t that they take their side versus another or give short shrift to conservatives. For them, no other side exists. They don’t need to spin the actual story. The concept took shape before the story was written.
Point is, the average newsroom leftist is impervious to truth. He cannot conceive, for instance, that blacks and Hispanics are more prone to crime than whites because they are more violent.
Or that Hispanics think drunk driving is a sign of machismo, which accounts for their high rate of DUI fatalities.
Or that domestic violence is a problem in Hispanic homes because of Hispanic culture, which prosecutors and women’s shelter workers know very well. Or that sex with underage girls is also permissible, again, because of Hispanic culture. Or, with the beheading, that Islam sanctions the castigation of disobedient wives.
Even when their own reporting proves these truths, MSM types do not draw the obvious conclusions. They just think of reasons why the obvious conclusions are wrong.
I see we’re meant to sympathize with Supreme Court nominee Sotomayor because “she lost her father as an adolescent.”
I dunno: sounds like maybe she was lucky…
