Found this article when News Googling Duke Lacrosse. It's long, and I'm not familiar with the site or writer, but the crime, and the questions/points being made do make you think a little. The crime itself is extremely heinous, and is why I support the death penalty. I'd never heard about this poor couple till now. Would I have had the shoes been a on the opposite feet? http://www.renewamerica.us/columns/gaynor/070404 Excerpt: "Tragedy strikes people of all colors, and I think it is imperative that those who print the news as well as those who would claim to seek equality and justice acknowledge that. Christian and Newsom died tragic deaths. Their brutal murders deserved to be acknowledged, and the attackers deserved to be known. "I can guarantee that I'm not the only one who is suspicious over whether the lack of coverage is a concerted effort to brush the story under the rug. Even if it wasn't, it is a huge fumble not to have reported the case. But if my suspicions are correct, it'll only reinforce a sad truth that I've come to learn: The most devastating and important cases are simply passed over when they don't fit the agenda." The Knoxville case not only does not fit the agenda of The New York Times and the politically correct crowd, it involves a savagery that dwarfs that of the fabricated savagery in the Duke case. If the couple was black and the persons allegedly responsible for their barbaric deaths were white, would The New York Times have found room for the story? On the front page!
