Birmingham News Finds Story Newsworthy... After PJ Media Breaks

This morning I posted a story about a violent attack on a truck driver by a black biker gang called the Outcasts of Alabama. The editor of the Macon Beacon, a weekly in Mississippi, offered the story to the beat reporter for the Birmingham News. The beat reporter told the editor of the Beacon the story of the attack was “not newsworthy.”

A mere seven hours after PJ Media broke the story, and over a week since learning about the events, the Birmingham News has changed their mind. Apparently an attack on a law abiding citizen by a gang of bikers in broad daylight was newsworthy. Read the weeks-late story here.

UPDATE: The editor of the Birmingham News has taken to the webpage to defend the weeks-late coverage of this story. Chuck Clark falsely states:“There were several errors of fact and false assumptions in what the bloggers posted regarding this incident — including the false assumption that we were purposely ignoring this story. But the bottom line is, as soon as the incident was brought to our attention, we looked into it.”

Balderdash. Many days ago, Scott Boyd of the Macon Beacon contacted Carol Robinson of the Birmingham News. Robinson, according to Boyd, flat out told her the Birmingham News wasn’t interested. Now that the new media has shamed Mr. Clark’s newspaper, the Birmingham News is pretending the call from Boyd never happened. It did. They might have “looked into it,” but the look lasted about three seconds and then Carol Robinson of the Birmingham News decided not to cover the stabbing, over a week ago. A weekly paper in Mississippi and the new conservative media at PJ Media covered events in Alabama better and quicker than the Birmingham News.

Boyd tells me he contacted the crime beat reporter at the Birmingham News and told her about his story.“Not newsworthy,” was her response. Boyd also tells me that law enforcement officials told Boyd they “don’t mess with the Outcasts of Alabama.” Comforting.

Had the attackers been the Confederate Hammerskins, and the victim been different, we all know (at a minimum) the Birmingham News would have covered the story. DOJ lawyers would be checking on the contract air carrier from Washington to Birmingham. I’ll wager even Soledad O’Brien would have spent at least one show on the attack.

It is precarious when the law, and attention from the media, are so out of balance. When state law enforcement officials flinch from prosecutions of the black Outcasts of Alabama, and national media organizations ignore some violence while elevating other incidents to month-long stories, the rule of law suffers.

Uniform outrage to incidents of lawlessness should guide the police, the Justice Department, and the hearts of every American. Selective outrage toward lawlessness empowers the thugs you chose to ignore.

The Beacon is a leader in reporting on violence and corruption in parts of the south. In my book Injustice, I singled out the paper for excellent reporting on the activities of Ike Brown in Noxubee County, Mississippi:“Published by Scott Boyd, the Beacon had been fearlessly and relentlessly covering Brown’s antics for years. While the national media was primarily interested in questioning the Bush administration’s decision to bring the case in the first place, the Beacon diligently memorialized crucial political events and reported the straight facts.”

Let’s see if the attack by a black motorcycle gang on an Alabama highway in broad daylight gets any more media or law enforcement attention now that the information is here for the asking. I won’t hold my breath.

UPDATE: The Birmingham News now finds the story newsworthy, about 7 hours after PJ Media first published the story, and at least a week after the Birmingham News, didn’t.

Although I do not agree with what happened to the trucker in any way, there are always two sides to a story. The trucker is telling different versions of what happened to the media and on the radio, but there is another side to what happened. The trucker is not as innocent as he's trying to make everyone think he is. He played a big role in what happened between him and the biker he hurt that he's not telling because it would make him look bad. What person in their right mind would pull over on the side of the road and give a biker time to get off his bike and make it to his truck if he's afraid? And what person in their right mind would try to jump on the back of a truck knowing they could get hurt? What a few bikers did to the trucker was completely wrong and unjustifiable! However, the actions of "some" bikers does not represent the actions of all bikers as a whole.

Hmmm, Real Talk. You make a valid point. Now, let's substitute "Trayvon" for "trucker". Yeah, I know, "trucker" lived to tell about it, even though he was left for dead. Dead men don't tell tales, but that hasn't prevented MSM like NBC to make up their own tales on Trayvon's behalf.

Beachparty, there is a big difference between that case and this one. That child wasn't doing anything to this man in any way. He profiled that child and did everything wrong. He got out of his car after being told not to! He chased that child, and I'm sure that Trayvon was scared to death. This child was crying for help right before this man shot and killed him. His only job was to call and report that there was a strange looking person walking through the neighborhood not to get out of his vehicle and chase this child who had nothing on him but some candy and a drink. This trucker did and said some things prior to the other bikers reaching the man he hit, ran completely over and drug down the road. He was trying to leave the scene of the accident before he was cut off by the person he claims told him to get out of there. He didn't stop to check on that man at all! As I said before, I do not agree with what happened to him at all. The reason he was attacked, as wrong as it was, is because he ran over the biker and tried to leave the scene. He wasn't the only one hurt in this situation. He and the man he ran over both had injuries, and they both had to be taken to the hospital. He's not the only one still recovering. A man almost died because of him, but that story isn't being told. Get ALL the facts first! That's all I'm saying!

It's sad that in 2012, everything comes down to race instead of facts. A man shouldn't have been charged with murder for killing an innocent child? But why? When I turned on my television I saw many races gathered together in support of Trayvon and the fight to have Zimmerman arrested and charged. Everyone was affected by that regardless of color. When Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton get on board, it became a race issue. Now here's a story about a white man who was attacked by a few members of a black motorcylce club and it becomes about race. There are racist comments about running over black bikers that people agree with. Why? Racism still plays a major part in why people choose to agree or disagree things that are done and said. I wonder if these same people would be commenting on this forum the same way if the man had been black and the bikers white. And what if there was someone defending the white biker saying the black man was attacked because of what he did to their fellow biker. Would it still be okay then?

You can also look up Amazon.com kindle book called "Injustice: Exposing the racial agenda of the Obama DOJ". You can look inside the book for FREE and go to the first chapter about "Mississippi, pay back time" and it talks about these same newspapers in these same towns on the Mississippi and Alabama state line and how the elections in 2003 were rigged & hijacked by the blacks.

This is just a small snipet to what happened in the Bush years up to Obamas election, and of course its obvious to everyone what Obamas racial agenda is, especially after this Trayvon case has exposed him even more.

imagine2011, I am not happy that Zimmerman is going through this. I am not happy to see Trayvon's parents grieving over the loss of their son. It should have never happened in the first place, but the reality of the situation is it did. It was senseless period!!! The fight was not for Zimmerman to be found guilty. The fight was for Zimmerman to be arrested and charged with a crime, and to allow a jury of his peers to decide his quilt or innocence. I am far from a racist, and I don't agree with any comments that are!!! If after all the facts have been presented, it shows that Zimmerman is innocent, then so be it! If it had been the other way around, you too would want the man arrested. A child died regardless of his race! What if it were your child? You would feel the same way his parents feel if someone shot and killed your son! It seems to me that everyone on this page only sees color. I happen to be one of those people who sees people and situations, and I'm so thankful for that! It doesn't have to be whites against blacks. The facts are the facts in this case and in the case of the trucker! If you only hear one side of a story and make up your mind that the one side you know is fact, then that's your right! My whole reason for commenting on this page in the first place was to shine light on the fact that there are two sides to every story. Again let me state that I do not agree at all with what the bikers (black, white, green, or red) did, but those few people do not represent the biker that was hurt nor the other members of the club who had absolutely nothing to do with what happened!

The media intentionally tries to hide the staggering black on white crime in this country or outright lie about them.

Some examples:
1} The Shannon Christian/Chris Newsom rapes, torture and murders in Knoxville, Tn.

2} The 10 year old white boy tortured to death with a blow torch in Houston, Tx.

3} The rash of black teen mobs attacking whites in Chicago, Milwaukee, Denver, Philadelphia and elsewhere.

4} The racist attacks against whites last year at the Iowa and Wisconsin State Fairs where blacks attacked white familes yelling it's "beat" whitey night.

It is all about race, and those who think it isn't, have thier head up thier a$$ singing Kumbaya.

If any of these attacks would have been white on black crimes, we would never hear the end of it, but the media will try to cover them up as much as possible since it is black on white crime.

The Lily White Lying Media is doing everything possible to Cover Up this Incident and Fox News is also GUILTY of Under-Reporting Black on White Crime! Where is the OUTRAGE all you TRAYVON MARTIN Fans,

Where did you get this bilge from? The Ed Show on MSNBC? Trayon wasn't a child. He was a 17 year old punk on school suspension for vandalism and truancy. Zimmerman was on the community property where he lived watching out for his neighbors because of area burglaries. He was attacked by that punk, getting the back of his head smashed in and yelling for help before he had to justly use lethal force.

The left-wing news media has only played the race card and you are gullible enough to lap up that slop. I have never heard of anybody refered to as a "White Hispanic" before this. I guess that makes Obama a "White Black". If this incident was between two blacks in Chicago, or two Hispanics in Phoenix, or two whites in Boston, the story would have never made the national news.

Exactly why there will be no gun control. The white guy should have been licensed to carry. Liberal media stinks, simple way to end their behavior, boycott and demand fair an balanced news, like Fox!
