    Race-Baiting Bull-Shyte

    From the front page of Google News

    At first glance your immediate reaction is, "A African-American Male is responsible for the death of a Law Enforcement Officer."

    That's BULLSHIT "Journalism."

    Real Headline:

    YADKIN COUNTY (WTVD) --
    The man sought in a pursuit and crash that killed a North Carolina State Highway Patrol trooper has been arrested.

    After an extensive search, officials announced Dakota Whitt had been arrested around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday.

    How long will this "error" go uncorrected ?

    It wasn't a fugging "ERROR", period! And, if it was, the person who made the mistake AND the person above the mistake maker should have to answer to this.

    Hey, just classify and dismiss this as me being "Overly Sensitive", AGAIN.

    I don't know if it was intentional or not. Not making excuses but looking at Google News myself, just now, I wonder if the page didn't load all the way on your end.
    I saw the guy's face in your post with a headline beside it and a link. It described a DUI on a 4 wheeler.

    I see wrong pics on Google News feed frequently FWIW

    Just a day or two ago, I saw a pic next to a link about Physics "entanglement"

    Truly, I understand that mistakes are easily made and corrected but, the consequences of the mistake were not addressed, just replaced by some other attention grabbing headline in the hour-to-hour "News Cycle."

    Here is where the pathetic incident takes a turn; again, I prefaced the comments with the idea that *I* was just being "overly sensitive" and Blogged about it on my Google sponsored site using the screen-grabs from my computer.

    "How-come" when I go back to the Blog, the pictures have been deleted? The images that I posted at the top of this page are the same ones that I blogged with; they are gone like "Dust in the Wind."

    Gonna contact "Screw-oogle" and get their explanation on what part of the TOS the pictures violated

    Gotta wonder, many people got the wrong impression caused by the placements of the image and the links?

    Mel, channel 7 in Dayton shows a few seconds of random black guys getting arrested as stock video all of the time. I don't need scarecenter 7, and their crap either, FWIW.
