CM Press Spins a Tragedy

Both the D
aily Pilot and Orange County Register report today that a mentally disabled teenager from Ensign Middle School was beaten recently and the video record of the beating was posted on the MySpace web site. According to the news accounts, the perpetrators of this heinous crime have been arrested, as well as those responsible for filming it. Neither article gave specifics about the identities of the victim nor the perpetrators.


However, that didn't stop the racist manipulator over at the CM Press from twisting this tra
gedy for his own purposes. In his rant published just before 6: 00 a.m. today, HERE, he alleges a cover-up by the Daily Pilot because they did not report the race of the perpetrators and goes on to say, "Because the perps are identified as Newport Harbor High School students, white hating bloggers are already jumping to the conclusion that it was rich white kids involved. This has not been established."

Well, I've checked both articles and the accompanying blog comments. In neither publication was there any comment made assuming rich white kids were involved as of the time I posted this entry. He's fabricated this assumption to inflame a terrible situation and to attempt to place the blame on non-whites. This is typical of his form of "journalism". He fancies himself a "reporter" just because he played one in a pathetic movie 35 years ago. He makes up "facts" to suit his bias and has consistently done so over the years in his blog. Sadly, he has a group of followers here in town that actually believe his tripe.

You can read the Daily Pilot article and accompanying blog comments HERE and the Orange County Register coverage HERE. Make up your own minds about the truthfulness of this guy's spin on things.

Later reports retract the "mentally disabled" part of the story, by the way. Doesn't change your point at all, just a fact check.

substitute, you're correct. I just heard it on the radio news. Now the offense is only slightly less egregious and, you're correct again, it doesn't change the facts nor the spin by Mr. U. Know Who. Thanks for the note.
