Last week, the nation was shocked when a group of young black people tortured a mentally disabled white man while yelling “F” Trump. They even streamed the attack live on Facebook.
The media’s coverage of the crime has been terrible. CBS Radio even presented it in such a way that made the races of the people involved sound reversed.
CBS Radio Deceptively Implies Chicago Torturers Were White Trump Supporters, Victim Was Black
A CBS Radio News report on the video of four young Chicago people torturing a mentally disabled man falsely implied that the victim was black and his attackers were white, when in fact the opposite was true.
In the brief Thursday morning report– which attracted attention when a listener posted the clip on Reddit Friday– here’s how CBS characterized the attack:
The viral video of a beating and knife attack in Chicago suggests the assault had racial overtones. CBS’s Dean Reynolds tells us the victim is described as a mentally-challenged teenager.
In the video he is choked and repeatedly called the n-word. His clothes are slashed and he is terrorized with a knife. His alleged captors repeatedly reference Donald Trump. Police are holding four people in connection with the attack. [Emphasis added]
That is so incredibly dishonest!
Liberals in media hate this story because it destroys their narrative.
