May 18 - 5 Black Men BRUTUALLY k!ll White Couple & Media Accuse Of REVERSE RACISM
 

 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - In a powerful demonstration of the way the Internet has opened up the mainstream media to intensive second-guessing, bloggers are charging that news outlets have ignored the r*pe and murder of a young Knoxville couple because of the racial implications of the story.

The two victims were white; the five defendants are black.

The critics include mainstream conservatives, such as the National Review, and white supremacists. They have drawn comparisons to the Duke lacrosse r*pe case and wondered why the k!llings of Channon Christian, a 21-year-old University of Tennessee student, and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Christopher Newsom, are not getting the same attention from what the bloggers regard sneeringly as the liberal media.

"Oh, that's right, the victims were WHITE!" several conservative blogs have observed.

Or as National Review columnist Jack Dunphy commented online: "Uh oh, we're not supposed to talk about such things, are we."

It was bloggers who undermined CBS anchorman Dan Rather's 2004 report about President Bush's National Guard service, digging up evidence that the documents may have been forgeries. The next year, CNN chief Eason Jordan resigned after bloggers jumped all over him for supposedly saying that some journalists k!lled in Iraq by the U.S. military had been targeted. Last year, bloggers figured out that a Reuters photo showing the aftermath of an Israeli airstrike on Beirut had been doctored.

Local media in Knoxville have covered developments in the carjacking case since the bodies were found, and The a.ssociated Press ran stories that were transmitted nationally. But the k!llings have received scant attention from other media outlets.

"The Internet has been basically chastising the mainstream media now, it seems, since the Internet opened up," said Aly Colon at the Poynter Institute, a journalism think tank in St. Petersburg, Fla.

"I mean, as soon as somebody had an electronic Internet megaphone, the opportunity to throw brickbats at the media just got amplified from the backyard-over-the-fence to an e-mail or a blog. That isn't necessarily new, but I think what you are witnessing may be is an increasing amount of that taking place."




Warning: these details are graphic:

On Saturday January 6, 2007 Hugh Christopher Newsom, age 23 and Channon Gail Christian, age 21, both students at the University of Tennessee went out on a date.

They were driving in Channon’s Toyota 4-Runner when they were carjacked at gunpoint. Suddenly the crime turned far more savage than an armed car theft. Chris and Channon were kidnapped and driven to 2316 Chipman Street where they were forced into the home at gunpoint. While Channon was forced to watch, her boyfriend was r*ped prison style and then his p*nis was cut off. He was later driven to nearby railroad tracks where he was shot and set afire.

But Channon’s hell was just beginning. She was beaten; gang r*ped repeatedly in many ways, had one of her brea$ts cut off and bleach poured down her throat to destroy DNA evidence—all while she was still alive. To add to Channon’s degradation the suspects took turns urinating on her. They too set her body afire, apparently inside the residence, but for some reason left her body there—in five separate trash bags.
Both s3xually a.ssaulted
Christian and Newsom were last seen Jan. 6. They were carjacked as they were leaving a friend's apartment. Newsom's shot and burned body was found the next day along the railroad tracks, and Christian's corpse was discovered two days later in a trash can at a house rented by one of the defendants. Both had been s3xually a.ssaulted. Household cleaner had been poured in her mouth to remove evidence, according to court records.


Some Internet postings have suggested the k!llings should be treated as a hate crime. But Police Chief Sterling Owen said: "We have no evidence to support the notion that this was a race-based crime. We see this as a cold-blooded murder."

Similarly, claims made over the Internet that the couple were s3xually mutilated are "absolutely not true," John Gill, special a.ssistant to District Attorney Randy Nichols, said Friday.

Christian's father, Gary Christian, wore a Confederate flag T-shirt to the first hearing for one of the defendants and then pointed at the man as if firing a gun. But family lawyer Joe Costner said Channon Christian's parents have repeatedly said they do not believe their daughter's k!lling was race-related.

Lemaricus Davidson, 25; his brother, Letalvis Cobbins, 24; George Thomas, 24; and Cobbins' former girlfriend, Vanessa Coleman, 18, are charged with murder. A fifth defendant, Eric Boyd, 34, is being held on a federal charge of being an accessory after the fact, accused of helping Davidson.

The victims did not know the attackers and were just "at the wrong place at the wrong time," Gill said.

The four murder defendants will be given separate trials, beginning next May. Prosecutors have yet to say whether they will seek the death penalty.

Among the bloggers who have questioned the media coverage is country singer Charlie Daniels.

"I am not going to call it reverse racism," said Daniels, who has written on his Web page about how little he has heard of the case in Nashville, about 150 miles west of Knoxville. "But I will say it is very selective.

"There are probably not five stories in the country that could possibly have been more important than that one during the time it was going on," he said. "It is totally, completely unfair to the memory of these young people not to inform people about what happened to them."

More than a dozen e-mails to the Cleveland Plain Dealer in recent weeks have raised similar concerns, reader representative Ted Diadiun said. "Why are you guys covering this up?" they ask.

Diadiun said that based on the AP stories, it appeared that the crime was horrible but not substantially different from ones that "regrettably occur all over the country every day."

Glenn Reynolds, a University of Tennessee law professor who operates Instapundit, a current events blog, said he was branded an apologist after he wrote that he had seen no evidence the k!llings were a hate crime.

However, he said: "I think it is totally true if the races of the perpetrators and the victims were reversed, the press would make a bigger deal about it. I think some people have been hanging back for fear of inflaming things."

Ted Gest, president of the Criminal Justice Journalists group, a national organization of reporters who cover crime, courts and prisons, said interracial crime tends to get more coverage than when the criminal and victim are of the same race.

"But I can't say that this one would have had any more coverage if five whites had been accused of doing these things to two blacks, absent a blatant racial motive," he said. "As bad as this crime is, the apparent absence of any interest group involvement or any other `angle' might also explain the lack of coverage."

Wow that is absolutely fu*king terrible. These guys need to be tortured in the worst ways possible and kept alive for as long as possible so their torture can be stretched out over the course of a long life. This is some of the worst sh*t I've ever heard in my life honestly.

INSANE. The whole thing is just wrong. From the disgusting sh*t that occurred to the supposed media blackout.

I don't totally think its "reverse racism" as much as i think its a little too graphic to get the numbers mainstream media wants. There's nothing "sensationalist" about this case--its just fu*king psycho sick twisted beyond belief. How the hell DO you cover a case like this in mainstream media...

Besides, as soon as some silly white girl disappears from her wine-tasting, the media will jump all over it harder than any white-on-black crime. Keep it real.

Unreal. Black or whtte, these pieces of sh*t should be locked down with the worst criminals and treated like the bi*ches they are. I wish I met any of their family members so I can whip out my d*ck and p!ss of them. People like this shouldnt even be put in jail. It should be a 5 minute trial, take them behind the courthouse, turn on the cameras, and let the victims families beat them to death on national television....My TIVO is ready

Man I really, really hope these f*g**t a.ss bi*ches all get their nutsacks slit in the middle and have their nuts drip out and be forced to eat them sh*ts, that would be a beautiful site to behold. And I hope that c*nt gets r*ped by a horse while having her t*tties cut off and a long blade shoved in her anus. These people deserve the worst that the devil has to offer.

I feel that if you take a life in cold blood that your life should be taken from you. You have no value for human life so why should we spare pity upon you. I want them to bring that sh*t into effect but theres too many pus*y americans that are against that sh*t and would rather waste tax (the people's) dollars taking the ppl to trials. Those ppl's trial isnt until May 08
