Does the Media...

Hate Black People?

An important aritcle in today's LA Times discusses how the media dropped the ball on the post Katrina story and largely reported rumors rather than fact. We know that the convention center and Superdome were still hellish places to be, but they weren't the rape factories and death chambers that were widely, and apparently inaccurately reported. The article brings up a good point..

"If the Dome and Convention Center had harbored large numbers of middle class white people," Amoss said, "it would not have been a fertile ground for this kind of rumor-mongering."
I think the answer is no, if these facilities had been full of 'white folk' I think the tenor of reporting would have been different. So, to be fair to those who criticize the Administration and accuse them of not caring about black people, I ask this...Why, apparently, does the media hate them too?
