The MSM reports the Chris Lane Murder, on its Terms

Yes­ter­day after­noon I was lis­ten­ing to the live stream of Rush on WABC and was sur­prised to hear ABC News at the top of the hour talk about the Chris Lane Murder.

It seemed atyp­i­cal. After all usu­ally when a group of black men kill a white per­son that is con­sid­ered a local story. Such news might have trac­tion in the city or state where it takes place in but cer­tainly not beyond as the MSM con­sid­ers it racist to talk about such things.

Of course even that might be more cov­er­age than the story would get if Chris Lane was Black. Such a mur­der wouldn’t have received local TV cov­er­age let alone national. Lane would have been just another sta­tis­tic in the plague of black on black vio­lence that the media & the Al Sharp­tons therein ignore.

So why has this story bro­ken out beyond the local press?

Well because the Mr. Lane was Aus­tralian and the Aus­tralian press for all its faults is not about to ignore the mur­der of an Aus­tralian Ball player on Amer­i­can soil, par­tic­u­larly when the media reports he died to relieve his killers boredom.

Times have changed. If this was 20 years ago the Aus­tralian press not with­stand­ing the MSM might still have been able to ignore this story, but in ago of Drudge it can’t be done.

So ABC radio did their piece on the mur­der how­ever there was no men­tion of race in their piece

or in this AP story (empha­sis mine):

Pros­e­cu­tor Jason Hicks called the boys “thugs” as he described how Christo­pher Lane, 22, of Mel­bourne, was shot once in the back and died along a tree-​lined road on Duncan’s well-​to-​do north side. He said the three teens, from the grit­tier part of town, chose Lane at ran­dom and that one of the boys “thinks it’s all a joke.”

Despite the frenzy of the George Zim­mer­man /​Travon Mar­tin case of just 30 days ago nowhere in the AP/​CBS story will you see the words “White” or “Black” and while twitchy is ask­ing the obvi­ous question

along with bloggers

and while PJ Media is ask­ing rel­e­vant ques­tions on cul­ture, gangs:

Google “blue ban­dana gang” and you’ll get thou­sands of hits. Light blue ban­danas are typ­i­cally asso­ci­ated with the Crips gang and its off­shoots. The Crips are active in Okla­homa — four Crips were indicted on drug traf­fick­ing charges in Tulsa in June of this year.

Many are already blam­ing the gun that the teens allegedly used to kill Chris Lane, includ­ing mem­bers of the Aus­tralian gov­ern­ment. Guns are inan­i­mate objects.

The “gun cul­ture” didn’t kill Chris Lane, but the rap and gang cul­ture may have played a promi­nent role.

and money:

edwards-money pj media

Here is one of sev­eral pho­tos of wads of cash on Edwards’ Face­book page. Where does a “bored” 15 year old get this kind of money?

none of these are going to be dis­cussed, the MSM has decided on its meme

and where the MSM leads their acolytes will follow.

If the MSM media has to cover the Chris Hunt mur­der it’s going to be the story of guns in America…

The indis­crim­i­nate shoot­ing of Christo­pher Lane, a 23-​year-​old Aus­tralian who was liv­ing his dream of study­ing in the U.S. on a base­ball schol­ar­ship, has repulsed many in his home coun­try and led to calls for Aus­tralian tourists to boy­cott the United States.

It is another exam­ple of mur­der may­hem on Main Street,” for­mer Aus­tralian deputy Prime Min­is­ter Tim Fis­cher told CNN’s Piers Morgan.

Peo­ple think­ing of going to the USA for busi­ness or tourists trips should think care­fully about it given the sta­tis­ti­cal fact you are 15 times more likely to be shot dead in the USA than in Aus­tralia per capita per mil­lion people.”

…not race, not gangs and not any­thing else. If Amer­i­can racism can’t be blamed Amer­ica itself will be.

And that’s a story the MSM will be happy to run with.

As the photo above shows, gang mem­ber­ship pays a lot bet­ter than con­ser­v­a­tive media.

Three of those bills from that stack would fill my weekly pay­check cur­rently stand­ing at $39 of the $305 needed to keep the mort­gage moving.

Can this change? Well that’s up to you, Please con­sider hit­ting DaTip­Jar below and prove that while con­ser­v­a­tive blog­ging will never pay what gang activ­ity does it can gen­er­ate a pay­check to keep the mort­gage paid.

Yesterday afternoon I was listening to the live stream of Rush on WABC and was surprised to hear ABC News at the top of the hour talk about the Chris Lane Murder.

It seemed atypical. After all usually when a group of black men kill a white person that is considered a local story. Such news might have traction in the city or state where it takes place in but certainly not beyond as the MSM considers it racist to talk about such things.

Of course even that might be more coverage than the story would get if Chris Lane was Black. Such a murder wouldn’t have received local TV coverage let alone national. Lane would have been just another statistic in the plague of black on black violence that the media & the Al Sharptons therein ignore.

So why has this story broken out beyond the local press?

Well because the Mr. Lane was Australian and the Australian press for all its faults is not about to ignore the murder of an Australian Ball player on American soil, particularly when the media reports he died to relieve his killers boredom.

Times have changed.  If this was 20 years ago the Australian press not withstanding the MSM might still have been able to ignore this story, but in ago of Drudge it can’t be done.

So ABC radio did their piece on the murder however there was no mention of race in their piece

or in this AP story (emphasis mine):

Prosecutor Jason Hicks called the boys “thugs” as he described how Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, was shot once in the back and died along a tree-lined road on Duncan’s well-to-do north side. He said the three teens, from the grittier part of town, chose Lane at random and that one of the boys “thinks it’s all a joke.”

Despite the frenzy of the George Zimmerman / Travon Martin case of just 30 days ago nowhere in the AP/CBS story will you see the words “White” or “Black” and  while twitchy is asking the obvious question

 

along with bloggers

and while PJ Media is asking relevant questions on culture, gangs:

Google “blue bandana gang” and you’ll get thousands of hits. Light blue bandanas are typically associated with the Crips gang and its offshoots. The Crips are active in Oklahoma — four Crips were indicted on drug trafficking charges in Tulsa in June of this year.

Many are already blaming the gun that the teens allegedly used to kill Chris Lane, including members of the Australian government. Guns are inanimate objects.

The “gun culture” didn’t kill Chris Lane, but the rap and gang culture may have played a prominent role.

If  the MSM media has to cover the Chris Hunt murder it’s going to be the story of guns in America…

The indiscriminate shooting of Christopher Lane, a 23-year-old Australian who was living his dream of studying in the U.S. on a baseball scholarship, has repulsed many in his home country and led to calls for Australian tourists to boycott the United States.

“It is another example of murder mayhem on Main Street,” former Australian deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer told CNN’s Piers Morgan.

“People thinking of going to the USA for business or tourists trips should think carefully about it given the statistical fact you are 15 times more likely to be shot dead in the USA than in Australia per capita per million people.”

…not race, not gangs and not anything else.  If American racism can’t be blamed America itself will be.

And that’s a story the MSM will be happy to run with.

As the photo above shows, gang membership pays a lot better than conservative media.

Three of those bills from that stack would fill my weekly paycheck currently standing at $39 of the $305 needed to keep the mortgage moving.

Can this change? Well that’s up to you, Please consider hitting DaTipJar below and prove that while conservative blogging will never pay what gang activity does it can generate a paycheck to keep the mortgage paid.
