National Media Completely Ignore NY Man Left Brain Dead By Attacker Shouting 'I Hate White People'

Post  fshnski on Sun Sep 08, 2013 12:30 pm

NewsBusters asked Saturday if the media will report a New York man becoming brain dead as a result of an unprovoked attacked by a man saying "I hate white people."

So far with the exception of local New York coverage, the answer is a resounding "No."


Analyses of Google News, LexisNexis, and closed-caption transcripts found absolutely no national reporting of Jeffrey Babbitt, the 62-year-old retired train conductor now in a coma at Bellevue Hospital.

Not one word on ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, or NBC.

Potentially even more curious, the largest newspaper in New York, the New York Times, appears to have not reported this attack despite it occurring in its own backyard.

If Babbitt were black, and his assailant shouted "I hate black people" before inflicting what appears will be a death blow, would America's media be so disinterested?

Or would this be headline news much like what we saw with Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman?

Sadly, we all know the answer as our media have once again shown that they are only interested in white on black hate crimes.

The other variety just don't fit the agenda.

*****Update: It turns out the New York Times did report this matter at its website Friday and in print Saturday. Unfortunately, the name of the assailant was wrong and the article didn't include Babbitt's. That's why it appeared this event had gone unreported.

Readers are advised the errant report was a total of 152 words buried on page 21.

I guess that's the importance the Times gives to black on white hate crimes.

"Babbitt did not look like my son, next question."
