Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the nearly unanimous public condemnation of the treatment of George Floyd and that there must be justice in the case. They also note that some will try to use the looting and arson from Wednesday night to drives wedges in that united front. They also unload on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for having the gall to suggest that nursing homes are to blame for accepting COVID-positive patients when New York forbid nursing homes from rejecting such patients or even testing incoming patients for COVID-19. And as CBS is forced to make layoffs in the news division, they’re stunned to see news reports that the list reportedly includes respected White House reporter Mark Knoller.

    Andrew Cuomo is treated better or worse by the liberal media as his stock as a potential Vice Presidential candidate — or, indeed, replacement Presidential candidate — goes up and down.

    The unwritten rule is, “It’s OK to report the news, as long as it doesn’t help the Republicans win an election.”

    Remember, Jim Geraghty is always wrong.

    As Heather MacDonald has often pointed out, careful surveys of police killings of suspects show no bias against blacks, rather the opposite. This probably has to do with the fact that the consequences of killing a black suspect are so much more dire than if the suspect was white. Enough so that even the most racist white cop ever imagined in the fever dreams of the media will hesitate, and hesitate again, before he pulls the trigger.

    So what Geraghty is missing is that this case involves the use of anecdotal evidence to support the false, “black lives matter” narrative; i.e., that blacks are victimized by whites more often than the reverse.

    That the anecdote is, apparently, a true one this time doesn’t change the overall interracial crime statistics.

    Then again, a lot of conservatives were snookered by the Covington kids hoax, so keep your powder dry.
