Media bias is so irrefutable at this point that I almost lack the willpower to write another post on it, but this story is so "black and white" that it illustrated the point perfectly. But we first need to inverse the colors.
Let us pretend that a member of the KKK stood outside of a polling place in Philadelphia in 2008--with a white sheet, hood, and a metal pipe--and intimidated black people from voting for Barack Obama for president. The whole incident is caught on tape.
Let us pretend that John McCain won that election, and he hired a
cracker white Republican Attorney General who dropped all charges against the Klansman, prompting a prosecutor on the case to quit his job in protest over, what he calls, preferential treatment of white people.
Then, pretend that a video surfaced of the freed Klansman shouting this at a public rally:
"I hate black people! All of them! Every last iota of a n****r; I hate him! You want freedom? You're going to have to kill some n****rs! You're going to have to kill some n****r babies!"
Then, imagine--if you can--that the leader of the KKK gave a speech that praised the Attorney General for dropping charges against the accused Klansman, and soon after another speech of his surfaced where he praised the racial policies of Adolph Hitler.
How do you think CNN, MSNBC, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, ABC, CBS, and NBC would react? Do you think they'd lead with that racial injustice every day?
Of course they would. McCain and his AG would have both been politically destroyed.
But with the colors inverted, the media ignores completely. They ignored that a Black Panther member said this:
"I hate white people! All of them! Every last iota of a cracker; I hate him! You want freedom? You're going to have to kill some crackers! You're going to have to kill some cracker babies!"
They ignored that the Black Panther member said that after he stood outside of a polling place to intimidate white people from voting.
They ignored that Obama's AG dropped the case against him, and they ignored that a prosecutor on the case quit over reverse racism inside the department.
They didn't make a peep when the leader of the New Black Panther Party praised the Obama Administration for dropping the case for racial reasons.
And they've completely ignored that the same leader praised Osama Bin Laden in 2002.
It's impossible to deny media bias when you reverse the races. It would be bad enough if they just downplayed the controversy--but they've completely ignored it, and have all but admitted they've abdicated the position entrusted to them by the American people.
