Will MSM Ignore John Edwards Racial Gaffe?
MSM coverage over the non-racist statements of right-of-center pundit Bill O'Reilly has been trumpeted loudly and lots. But when John Edwards says to a group of kids on MTV that young black men will soon either be in prison or dead, there is barely a blip on the radar. If a Republican cadidate would have said this, the MSM would have made certain it was a campaign killer. It would have been red meat for the echo chambers. Here is what he said.
“We cannot build enough prisons to solve this problem. And the idea that we can keep incarcerating and keep incarcerating — pretty soon we’re not going to have a young African-American male population in America. They’re all going to be in prison or dead. One of the two.”
Since it was a Democrat, Daily KOS not only gives it a pass, but calls it ‘great courage.’ Where is the MSM on this one?
