Jesus H. Christ, you’ve got to be kidding me. This jackhole has blood all over his hands and receives sympathetic treatment. Sure, let’s make him the victim.
Talk about sickeningly misplaced sympathies . . . Waking up to the news that two police officers had been shot during a protest in Ferguson, MO last night, and turning on Morning Joe, I expected the first interviews to be with family members of the wounded policemen, or perhaps with the head of a police organization, condemning the outrage. Instead, there were Al Sharpton, and Marc Morial [of the National Urban League.] And rather than focusing on the wounded policemen, Scarborough’s first line to Sharpton painted him as a victim: “this has got to be terribly frustrating to you.”
Even more outrageous was Morial’s statement that even after the resignation of several officials in Ferguson, the shootings show “that people want further change.” Incredibly, Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, instead of bringing the focus back onto the victims, seconded Morial’s notion.
Readers, permit me a personal note. Here at NewsBusters, our mission day in and day out is to chronicle liberal media bias. Sometimes the subjects can be relatively minor, even humorous. But the spectacle of today’s Morning Joe has left me truly outraged.
Sharpton says no one in his crowd would “condone” shooting policemen. That’s awfully weak sauce. How about condemning it?
Sharpton and Morial were quick to suggest that there’s no evidence that the shooters were among the “protesters.” But unless this was a very unlikely case of a random shooting, weren’t the shooters, by definition, “protesters?”
