The massive propaganda machine known as the mainstream media has reached an all-time nadir of coverage in the wake of the tragic Trayvon Martin killing. Ever since George Zimmerman, the half-white and half-hispanic individual who apparently disregarded police advice and decided to pursue Martin, ultimately killing him, has yet to be arrested and tried, the nation has been catapulted into a frenzy of raucously rabble-rousing racial tension. From the Daily Caller’s quintessential “privileged white boy” racism to the foaming-at-the-mouth, psycho babble from Stormfront (they prefer another kind of hood), racism has temporarily put misogyny in abeyance (unless you can do both).
Lou Dobbs, better known for his regular onscreen tirades on the Mexicans and most recently going after a fictional Dr. Seuss cartoon, recently credited Geraldo Rivera’s with “great courage” over his hoodie comments. In case you were too busy being appalled by regular crowd of disgusting pretend journalists over at Breitbart.com, Geraldo Rivera, a man who thinks a mustache and glasses equate journalistic integrity, Geraldo claimed that Trayvon’s hoodie was to blame for his death. Lou started of his segment in rather sensible fashion, citing the media (both left and right) that has come of the Trayvon Martin Case, but then he adulated Geraldo over the comments for which Rivera has since apologized.
