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.

Just unbelievable.

Screenshot taken and hard copy printed.

Like one of the comments there says, they'll pull the story soon. The public response is "less than favorable", to put it nicely.
I'm a Libertarian Constitutionalist.

I don't give a shit what you do with your own life, whether you make it a success or a failure, that is an outcome of the choices you make, but please take responsibility for yourself and don't make ME pay for YOUR choices and we're all good.

Repeal the 17th Amendment and the Apportionment Act of 1911!

Thread: First steps down the road to a return to the Constitutional Republic that we were intended to be.

Restore the Republic.

It's a flower, not something to be feared.

Fortunately, our local TV station is covering this story, too. I live in this area, and people are OUTRAGED that the Pilot is trying to cover this up.

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.

Then I must be confused on what their agenda exactly is, I thought it was, at present, race baiting to incite unrest.
Which airing the other side of the coin would only HELP to escalate things. Sitting on the story does nothing but keep the whole race riots angle from growing.

You see how it seems counter-intuitive? If that is indeed their agenda, the media would be wanting to splash it all over the nation.
So what is the agenda? Fear mongering? Well, airing this story would only serve to help that agenda.
Is the agenda attempting to make whitey into the only bad guy? Then I could see them quashing it to protect their 'investment' othrewise it just doesn't add up to the perpetual fear machine that is MSM.

That's what is upsetting to me. They're now making judgements on which HORRIBLE stories should appear???

Years ago, my best friend suffered a violent assault and that was plastered all over the news. That involved one person in one small area. This story of the beating at Brambleton and Church has the potential to impact THOUSANDS of people, and yet it's buried?

wow. they said they didn't think it was newsworthy because there was no evidence that the attack was racially motivated.

the trayvon incident was NOT racially motivated, yet that is all the media talked about for two entire months, and they MADE IT INTO A RACIAL THING.

Actually, it is being reported that the publisher of the Pilot does have ties to Obama.

[link to hamptonroads.com]

[link to www.wnd.com]

Maurice Jones

The Virginian-Pilot has a tie to President Obama, as its publisher since 2008, Maurice Jones, was nominated by Obama and recently confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be deputy secretary of HUD, the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

He was expected to start his new job in Washington on April 16, meaning he was still officially the Pilot’s publisher through the weekend of the Norfolk mob attack.

 Quoting: Hope_Full


FTA:

On Wednesday, Norfolk police spokesman Chris Amos strongly defended the police's handling of the incident. Police are not investigating this as a hate crime, Amos added, and there is no proof of racial bias. Even Forster says he heard nothing to indicate the attack was racially motivated.


Even the guy that got attacked said this wasn't racially motivated. Again, why is this crap pinned?

The story clearly has national implications (even international implications) given that light-skinned
people are being targeted in violent mob attacks.

The best-informed citizens will ovbiously be able to better
maintain their own personal security - apparently this
VA media outlet isn't concerned with helping it's readers
stay informed of extremely relevant news.
