The Horror Story The Media Is IgnoringTopics: Follies of the Mainstream Media
The Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom murder is essentially being ignored by the MSM, and it is definitely one of those "perfect teaching moments" on the liberal media's bias against what they deem politically incorrect or inconsistent with their Leftist agenda:
Christian and Newsom had gone on a date at a local restaurant on Saturday, January 6, 2007, but did not return home. During their drive, the couple was "hijacked, bound and blindfolded and taken back to Davidson's apartment."]Here are the victims:
At Davidson's apartment, Newsom had apparently been group raped in Christian's presence. According to Officer Todd Childress, "Newsom's body was wrapped in a 'sheet and/or comforter,' and that the victim had been shot at least three times. He also notes that Newsom's shoes, socks, identification, and iPod were missing. His body had been burned."
Christian's parents found her Toyota 4-Runner on Chipman Street on Monday, with the help of her mobile phone provider. Because the killers ditched Christian's SUV just a few hours after it was stolen, it has been sugested that the primary objectives of the perpetrators was their desire to kidnap, torture, rape, and murder, instead of a simple hijacking. An envelope recovered from the vehicle yielded fingerprint evidence that led police to Lemaricus Davidson and 2316 Chipman Street. When police went to the address on Tuesday, January 9, they found the home unoccupied and Christian's body in a trash can in the kitchen. She had been dismembered, her body found in five separate trash bags. It has been alleged that for two days she had been group raped multiple times, beaten, and urinated upon. Reports have also indicated that Christian was forced to drink bleach or a similar liquid, in an attempt to remove DNA evidence. Newsom's body was found adjacent to railroad tracks in East Knoxville the next afternoon.
If you wonder why the liberal media isn't covering the story, here are the accused attackers:

As we've learned from the MSM's track record: If it's not politically correct and it doesn't fit the George Soros leftwing agenda - the MSM pretends it didn't even happen. And then there's the issue of Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, looking for racial hatred in all the wrong places.
When are the real racists - Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, going to stand up for what's right, not against what is white.
