LIES OF OMISSION: The Left’s Contribution to the Problem of ‘Fake News’

Written by Kenn Daily on December 15, 2016

Fake news is sometimes a matter of intentionally misstating facts. Other times fake news is a matter of intentionally missed facts. That is, fake news occurs when newsworthy stories go unreported. I call it “lying by omission”.

Here are examples.

• The trial of his Cedric Poore is currently underway.

In January, 2013 Cedric and his brother, James, reportedly broke into a Tulsa, Oklahoma apartment where they bound four women before fatally shooting each in the head execution style. The motive was robbery.

Dead are 23-year-old twin sisters Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Powell Melchor; Misty Nunley, 33; and Julie Jackson, 55.

The Poore brothers are black. Their four victims were white.

James was earlier tried and convicted of the crimes.

What if the murders had been white-on-black? The story would be a national media obsession; woven into the fabric of our cultural conscience as evidence that white racism persists unabated.

The horrific murders were ignored by the mainstream national media; lying by omission.

• Two black males — 25-year-old Richard Allon Spanks and 24-year-old Haywood Eugene Miller — are suspects for the fatal shootings of two young white women.

A report early this month says 33-year-old Jacquline Cline and 23-year-old Victoria Loftis were found shot to death in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Had the races been reversed, the story almost certainly would have ignited a media firestorm.

• Two black males are wanted for shooting three white people in Nashville, Tennessee. Two of the victims died.

The crime was reported November 29, 2016. reports that 33-year-old Chad Miller “was outside with two visitors – 41-year-old Charity Adams and her boyfriend, 26-year-old Kenneth Pullens – when a suspect opened fire on them around 3 p.m. Adams was killed in the shooting. Miller was shot in the head and Pullens was hit in the back. Police said Pullens is in stable condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.”

The execution of two white people by two black males was ignored by the national media; lying by omission.

What are the media trying to hide?

• 31-year-old Christie Lynn Stutler, a white woman, was found fatally shot at a residence in Abbeville, South Carolina. The cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the head, reports say.

47-year-old Charles Tillman, a black male, was charged with murder. The crime was reported by the local media on November 9, 2016. The national media have ignored it.

• 82-year-old John Clements was gunned down outside his Zionsville, Indiana home as he was retrieving his mail. Accused of the senseless murder is Damoine Wilcoxson, 21. Police say Wilcoxson shot the elderly Clements with a high-powered rifle; apparently for sport.

Clements was white. Wilcoxson is black. The crime occurred September 28, 2016. The national media ignored the story.

• 18-year-old Kevin Grover was pulled from a high school class by his principal and turned over to police. The black youth is accused in the fatal murder of a white teenage boy.

19-year-old Ryan Higdon was fatally shot while sitting in his car earlier this year. Grover is one of four black males who apparently jumped into Higdon’s car at a park in Louisville, Kentucky. Shots were fired leaving Higdon dead. The teens reportedly fled in another vehicle. Also arrested are Ja’Lyn Wells, Ke’montrae R. Davis and Theodric L. Hayes.

The national mainstream media said nothing.

• 14-year-old Ian Wilsey was fatally shot while walking with a friend in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The murder occurred November 28, 2016.

Authorities say 19-year-old Samir Price, a black male, approached the white boy and opened fire. Robbery was the apparent motive.

Again, the national mainstream media were silent.

• 19-year-old Western Michigan University student Jacob Ryan Jones was fatally shot on December 8, 2016. Reports say two black males entered Jones’ apartment, one fatally shooting the startled victim as he rose from a sofa.

The intruders demanded cash and other items from four others in the apartment. A victim tackled one of the intruders causing two cell phones to be dropped. Those phones reportedly led to the arrest of 20-year-old WMU basketball guard Joeviair Kennedy. He’s been charged with murder.

Jones was white. Kennedy is black. The media are silent.

• On December 13, 2016 a jury found Eleazar Yisrael guilty of murder. He had fatally shot a 52-year-old man in the back with his own .22-caliber rifle inside the garage of his Hazleton, Pennsylvania home.

A local news outlet explained that the motive “was to allow his girlfriend . . . to gain sole possession of the family’s house, which was being sold as part of the couple’s impending divorce.”

The killer is black. His victim was white. Had the races been reversed, the murder likely would have been reported repeatedly as an example of white-on-black racial hatred.

The United States Dept. of Justice reports that 52.2 percent of homicides in America were committed by blacks, nearly all black males ages 18 to 49, who comprise about four percent of the nation’s population.

Black-on-white violent crime simply doesn’t fit the cultural Marxism narrative that white American must always be portrayed as oppressors and blacks must always be portrayed as their victims.
