This afternoon, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin asked a panel of four if supporters of suspected mass-murderer Christopher Dorner might “have a point.” After all, he did claim to be fighting against injustice.
Marc Lamont Hill, a Columbia University professor, could hardly contain his excitement. He actually found the murder rampage “exciting” “like ‘Django Unchained’ in real life.” In response to a panelist who points out, “We have a law. There are appropriate ways to do [remedy a grievance.], Hill says, “What if proper channels don’t work?”
CNN won’t talk about the state of the American economy, but whether or not an evil mass-murder might have a point is open for discussion.
This has to be seen to be believed. And let’s pray the families of Dorner’s victims didn’t witness CNN “ask questions” that effectively add a sense of legitimacy to a killer’s actions and to those who would like to see him turned into some kind of folk hero.
Hey, remember all those panels CNN panels convened to ask if supporters of abortion clinic bombers might have a point?
Neither do I.
The moral illiteracy that infects the news media knows no bounds.
