Reports of racially motivated incidents at the Air Force Academy and near a university campus in Manhattan, Kansas were found to be fakes after thorough investigation.
That leads me to make several elephant-in-the-room observations.
First: the media love stories of race so much that they sprint to unfurl the “breaking news” banner before knowing the facts. It seems facts don’t matter, or more precisely, facts are inconvenient if they can use the story as a political bludgeon to smear all conservatives and Republicans as racists.
The process works like this: First, liberal media outlets instantly parachute in to cover the story from the scene. Live coverage and interviews play on emotions, since the facts are murky at best. Anchors earnestly remind viewers "race is an explosive issue in America."
