What Black Panther voter intimidation case? That was San Fernando Valley's Congressman Brad Sherman's reaction when asked about it at a town hall meeting in Reseda earlier this week.
How could a sitting U.S. Congressman not know about the national story? In a statement, Sherman said:
Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., in a written statement released late Tuesday, accused Fox News of launching "attacks on me" for showing video of the meeting. He said he would soon send a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder regarding the incident and "the importance of allegations of voter intimidation," but said the "major sources of information which I rely upon most" did not mention the issue.But he also offered an excuse for missing the news, saying none of the media he reads covered it.Sherman listed the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Daily News, the Economist, Newsweek, Congressional Quarterly and National Journal and said he only found one mention of the Black Panther case.
Oh, there was an elite media news blackout--just like I claimed! Congressman Sherman might broaden his horizons and check out a non-liberal news source some time, and he'll see a whole 'nuther side of what's going on in the world.
