Ricin suspect arrested. Mass media? Mostly Crickets!

One of the first things the liberal media said after the terrible Boston bombings was that the act could have possibly been carried out by a right wing nut job. Websites like Salon.com stated that they hoped it was a white American. Way to go people! So here we have a confirmed Democrat, Paul Kenneth Curtis that has been arrested for sending letters with ricin to Republican Senator David Wicker and the President of the United States, Barack Obama. A democrat, not only attacking a Republican, but also a Democratic! So who’s the nut job here?

Same as was the case the Kermit Gosnell trial, and nearly any story that makes the left look bad, we have a near complete media blackout on the story. You may hear whispers here and there, because they sort of have to mention it, but let’s flip the script for a moment.

Imagine for a moment that a Republican site said “I hope the terrorist is a black man”, or imagine that the man sending the ricin letters was a Tea party member, what would happen? The story would be all over the internet, front page of every site! I keep coming back to this media hypocrisy because they continue to blatantly ignore stories that should be published. This is just another one for the books.

I was happy to hear that Congress gave the major networks a swift kick in the butt for their blatant ignoring of the Gosnell murder trial, it is a step in the right direction.
