“Bloomberg accuses New York Times of racial bias,” the Daily Caller reports:
In the speech, as reported by Capital New York, Bloomberg singled out The New York Times for failing to mention the death of a minority when the paper would never ignore the death of a white 17-year-old.
“But after his murder, there was no outrage from the Center for Constitutional Rights or the NYCLU [New York Civil Liberties Union]. There was not even a mention of his murder in our papers — our ‘paper of record,’ The New York Times. ‘All the news that’s fit to print’ did not include the murder of 17-year-old Alphonzo Bryant,” Bloomberg said.
“Do you think that if a white, 17-year-old prep student from Manhattan had been murdered, the Times would have ignored it?” Bloomberg asked rhetorically. “Me neither.”
Hey, remember when the idea of electing a black president was sold by the left as a method to bring America’s centuries of racial strife to a swift and timely conclusion? Good times, good times.
