Refitting the Media Template

This is how the same-stream media shifts a story around to fit its template:

From the Associated Press

“SPOKANE, Wash. — Police have arrested one of two teens suspected of fatally beating an 88-year-old veteran of World War II who had survived the battle for Okinawa.

Authorities say the two young men, between 16 and 19 years old, approached Delbert Belton in his car at random Wednesday night outside an Eagles Lodge as he was waiting for a friend.

Spokane Police say they have surveillance images of the attackers. Police have released few details about the person they arrested, other than that he is a juvenile male being held on charges of robbery and first degree murder.”

So what’s missing? The fact that Belton was white and the two teens — Black.

It would have been nice if the same same-stream media had been this unbiased when it came to the death of Trayvon Martin. You can’t trust jus’ one source of news for all your information, you need to do your own investigating.
