|"Those poor darkies."|
These days, I'm not easily shocked. But this did shock me.
One might anticipate that in an ongoing mass shooting situation, where the suspect would turn out to be a Muslim black supremacist who screamed "Allah Akbar!" when he was arrested, that CNN would find some way to cover it but downplay it, or excuse it. Bring on the CAIR spokesman to take advantage of the horrific murders by making a speech about Islamophobia, or the sociology talking head to blame capitalism or mental health funding cuts or whatever.
Or at least, Anderson Cooper, reporting from the scene, wearing a designer t-shirt worth more than an entire Haitian village.
Actually, according to the Daily Caller, CNN television news didn't cover the breaking story at all.
There is now an article on CNN's webpage. But there were no mentions of it during its news broadcasts up until prime time.
However, in the same time period, there were stories about, among other things, the sexual harassment charges against Bill O'Reilly and a child-custody battle involving Alex Jones.
CNN is now no more a news organization than was the outfit that published the anti-semitic tabloid Der Stürmer in Nazi Germany.
Maybe CNN was once the cable news station of record.
Even Darth Vader endorsed it.
Watch it in airports, if you must. Otherwise, try another channel, any other channel.
You'll get more honesty from the Home Shopping Network.

CNN Completely Ignores Anti-White Fresno Murders
By Chuck Ross
The murders of three white men by a black supremacist gunman in Fresno received limited media attention on Tuesday, most notably at CNN.
CNN’s dearth of coverage of the shootings, carried out by 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, an African-American Muslim, stands in stark contrast to its reporting of other non-political news events: the manhunt for a Cleveland man who killed a 74-year-old man on Sunday, a sexual harassment scandal involving Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, and a child custody battle involving radio host Alex Jones.
A review of CNN’s broadcast through primetime shows that the Fresno killings received no mentions on air. An article about the attacks is loaded to CNN.com.
MSNBC gave a brief mention to Muhammad’s racially-motivated killings during the day Tuesday. Fox News hosts discussed the story during several primetime shows. NBC, CBS, and ABC aired segments on the story during their nightly broadcasts.
