Media myths about the Jena 6

Read this article and then see if it sounds vaguely familiar. It certainly reminded me of another recent incident involving a racially charged episode involving young people that was jumped on by the media and held up as a prime example of the racism that "still" exists in this country until that is, the dust settled and the true facts of the case came out, to include DNA evidence (or the lack there of) and other witnesses and video that placed key defendants in other locations, etc.

As with the Duke Lacrosse case, the truth about Jena will eventually be known. But the town of Jena isn't expecting any apologies from the media. They will probably never admit their error and have already moved on to the next "big" story.

Yeah, that is the one I was thinking of and he is right, I do not remember reading/hearing a lot of apologizing by all of the media and pundits that jumped on the bandwagon cause you know, they were white and she was black and so they HAD to be guilty. Now with this case, they are black and he is white and well they were provoked and all so it was JUSTIFIED!
