From Fox news: “Philadelphia father killed by carjackers while trying to shield 2-year-old daughter”
Now why isn’t this a national story? Just like the story in Charlottesville!
Because the victim was a white man (IOW not a minority) and the perpetrators were not white (IOW a minority).
Non white crime on whites is not news.
Just like dog bites man is not news.
Reply to adocs and health: As we know from the OJ trial/circus, adocs is clearly wrong. As for why a murder in Philadelphia got no national coverage: lots of murders get no national coverage, usually for good reasons.
According to an FBI web site which I just accessed, there were about 15,700 murders in the US in 2015, i.e., about 43 per day for 365 days. Do you really think we need to read about all of them? Or that they are not reported because the media is liberal and wants to cover up all those murders? Why not ask Breitbart to report them?
And speaking of liberal media, The New York Times has an article on line (maybe also in the print edition) today about a black man convicted of murder of one white man and assaulting 2 others in Union Square, Manhattan, because he was mad at white people. He was sentenced to 25 years. Mark your 2042 diary to be careful when he gets out. Read the article – does it cheer you up that it was reported? Do you feel better informed?

Another travesty of justice!
If it was the other way around – the perp would have gotten 25 – life!
Hopefully the feds will prosecute & he’ll get the death penalty.
Because now we have a real Justice Dept.!
Historically, the death penalty has been used more on people who have unlikable traits, such as being Jewish in a room full of anti Semites.
Philadelphia has had 216 homicides so far this year according to the FBI. Sadly this is not exactly news that a national audience would be shocked by. Another murder in Philly, same as the week before (and the week before that). You don’t hear in the national news every day about the specific murder in Chicago, because its become expected.
Depending on who you speak with, Charlottesville was a terrorist attack. Terrorism is more news worthy than Murder.
