Everybody Hurts, With One Exception

Michael Chapman writes, “100 Million Victims of Communism Memorial Dedication = Minimal Liberal Media Coverage”:

The liberal media love to talk about “victims,” particularly victims of alleged economic or social oppression, such as illegal immigrants, children without enough Head Start funding, the homeless, the transgendered, detainees at Gitmo, and so on. But when it comes to victims of left-wing ideology–i.e., Communism–the liberal media don’t say too much. And this is evident in the minimal (in my view) coverage given to the dedication of the Memorial to the Victims of Communism in Washington, D.C. on June 12, an event where President Bush spoke and where some of the world’s leading experts on communism’s atrocities–more than 100 million victims–spoke as well.

As Chapman writes, “You’d think a memorial dedication to the 100 million victims of the greatest evil in modern times would get a little more attention from the dominant liberal media”, but perhaps making faux-victims out of Paris Hilton, Hillary, and Katie is more important to them.
