A Disturbing Tendency in the Media

This article really hit me when I read:

Now, imagine the scenario flipped: What if a soldier had attempted to murder a peace activist over the holidays in order to “make a statement”?

Boom.  Just like those stories about Homosexuals being tortured and strung up on a fence to die…but then silence when the situation is flipped.

If there is such a thing as “hate crime” or “deranged military murder” (as evidenced by the blanket coverage of the Marines in Haditha and elsewhere in Iraq), there most certainly is “hate reporting” and yes, “deranged journalistic irresponsibility.”
