[quote:Anonymous Coward 15359896:MV8xODU2NDM0XzMwOTU3ODkyX0ExOTg0NzAx] [quote:Evolved:MV8xODU2NDM0XzMwOTUzNTYxXzM4QjMwRTcw] I'm just wondering if the editor isn't one of those rare gems that is holding off printing an obviously polarizing piece, out of the honest postion of not wanting to fan the flames. Honestly, the whole Zimmerman case was a local matter, hardly worth the wall to wall national coverage it gained. While being a larger mob type setting, this story is still a local news event, not something the entire Nation needs to start rallying around. Honestly the more I look at this, the more it seems this one paper is trying to maintain some semblance of journalistic integrity by refusing to participate in the pointless racial baiting going on. The editor knew a story like this, would be latched onto by the MSM and then get hyperboled into the stratosphere. Kudo's to them for having balls. [/quote] There's race-baiting and then there is just reporting pertinent info. I would like to know if 100's of youths (no matter what the color) are going around beating up people in my area. It is my business and I would want the news to report it so I can put my guard up a little. It is terrible that they kept this new story hidden. It sounds like you think the media, gov't and what not need to decide what is in our best interest and I disagree with this. Why is it only race-baiting when the perpetrators are black? People need to be aware of MOB beatings in their neighborhoods, it's common sense to report it. [/quote]

This story just does not pass the sniff test. 100 people at the projects beat up a white couple and the paper is now trying to explain why it's not news.
