Media Matters Accuses Breitbart of ‘Race Baiting’ the WDBJ Shooting

This article was originally posted by PJ Media:

Here’s a shocker: Media Matters has accused Breitbart of “race baiting” coverage of the shooting of Alison Parker and two others by Vester Lee Flanagan. A Media Matters press release:

Breitbart News reacted to reports that two Virginia journalists were shot to death on-air by a disgruntled former co-worker by publishing an article with the headline, “RACE MURDER IN VIRGINIA: BLACK REPORTER SUSPECTED OF EXECUTING WHITE COLLEAGUES – ON LIVE TELEVISION!”
On August 26, two employees of Roanoke, Virginia CBS affiliate WDBJ were shot to death while reporting from Smith Mountain Lake, a public recreation area popular for boating and fishing. The gunman, who later shot himself but apparently survived, is reportedly a former employee of the affiliate.

Breitbart News reacted to the shooting with a race-baiting article authored by editor-at-large John Nolte. The piece was widely condemned by other members of the media, many of whom pointed out Breitbart News’ lengthy history of racially charged reporting and commentary.

Well that settles it, doesn’t it? If other members of the media condemned it, then it must be valid.
