Loneliness, Murder, and Insanity - Reporting on the Sodini Incident

Speaking of "lonely" - how is the MSM getting away with NOT discussing that the Lonely Guy Killer was particularly incensed over

1) "The president is a Ni*CLANG*", naturally, and
2) black men in general getting the "hos" to which he felt entitled?

This was another right-wing killing spree:

Joan Walsh at Salon:

In a related tangent, I was stunned by Editor and Publisher's report that AP, the New York Times and other news organizations quoted liberally from Pittsburgh health club murderer George Sodini's diaries, but left out his racist diatribes against Obama. The diary in fact began the day after Obama was elected, and Sodini wrote, "Good luck to Obama! He will be successful. The liberal media LOVES him. Amerika has chosen The Black Man." He then goes on to complain that white "hoes" are choosing black men over him...

E&P: AP Omits Killer's Obama References

The diary focuses on his problems with women and other worries, but also has some comments about the "liberal media," the "Obama economy" -- and it opens with remarks about last fall's election, the election of "The Black Man" and jokes about black men and white women. All left out of the AP excerpts and nearly everywhere else...

The MSM is framing this as another random spree killer, but this is part and parcel of the upsurge of right-wing rage killings. This one is so ugly that the press is ready to lie about it and cover it up.

I understand being being lonely, and I understand being bitter, but this kind of rage? Comes from somewhere else entirely.

Agreed, not mentioning the contents of the hate spiels is just exceptional. The media really hates the news these days. Must show they're not doing the job they're paid to do.

Very good, Meander; I'm glad you wrote this -- too much racism is simply being glossed over.

We will see much, much more of this, I fear.
