“White man exonerated.” The corporate-owned media is loath to use these words, even when the news story itself cries out for such a headline.
A Yahoo Lifestyle headline reads:
Dad Accused of Sexually Assaulting 4-Year-Old Daughter Cleared 20 Years Later
The accompanying video explains how Brad Pitman’s 4 year-old daughter was repeatedly asked leading questions, by El Paso County social workers, back in 1997. Over the course of these interrogations, the youngster’s story changed from “a man with dark skin, like my dad, hurt me” to “my dad hurt me.” Her dad was tanned at the time, because he worked in construction. After 20 years of being prohibited from having any contact with his children, it turns out that the real culprit was Joel Market, a black soldier stationed at a nearby army base.
In the Yahoo video, viewers are not shown an image of the actual rapist until 3 minutes and 46 seconds into the video.
According to “Journalist’s Resource,” the optimal length of a news video is just over 2 minutes. I’m fairly certain that a majority of viewers never viewed enough of the video to have seen the image of the real rapist. It’s clear, from the comments section, that most viewers aren’t aware of the role social services played in this miscarriage of justice, let alone the identity of the actual rapist. This is just another case of Yahoo pretending to report the news, while actually using trickery to hide the reality of black crime from its viewers.
A Fox News article is a bit better, showing photos of both the father and the actual rapist, but it’s still necessary to scroll almost three-quarters of the way down to view the small snapshot of the actual rapist.
The point of this post is not to claim that whites don’t rape kids, or to say that all blacks are evil. I’m simply pointing out that had it been a black man falsely accused of raping his daughter, and then it turned out that a white man actually did it, we would never hear the end of the racial aspect of this story; the headline would have read: “Black man exonerated in daughter’s rape. White man found guilty!!”
