Wow – Accidental Expose’ – Feds Offered Mike Brown Evidence To Editor Of Black Audience Newspaper Who Refused Information Because of Backlash Fear From Audience….

This takes the Ferguson cake.   Buried inside a catch-up story by the LA Times, who are missing out on the Mike Brown shooting scoops, is a trail that leads to the Feds providing details of the investigation to an editor of The Saint Louis American, Chris King. The Saint Louis American is African American News-Media. (Similar to The Grio)  

chris kingKing refuses to use the sourced information (about the factual evidence in the case) because his audience is black and the evidence does not support Mike Brown.  In essence he feared the audience backlash, ie. “coward”.

Chris King is white, his wife black and his audience primarily African American.  Obviously the investigation details he was privy to (a month ago) all support Officer Darren Wilson and therefore would not please his audience.  You might also enjoy reading his twitter feed since he’s been called out.  He is redefining what it means to be obtuse with denials and avoidance.  

Secondly, note how the “Federal Sources” for the LA Times are “unnamed”; despite the fact they claim to be quoting a “spokeswoman” they don’t provide a name as such.  That’s because this supposed anxiety from the feds is faux-outrage.  The feds, or more specifically the DOJ/CRS are the ones providing the leaks.  Also important, notice too the example they use for what upsets them.  It is not the current leaks and releases, but rather the previous release of the Ferguson Liquor Mart CCTV from Ferguson PD.

“Justice Department condemns Ferguson leaks as effort to influence opinion”

(LA Times) With a grand jury decision looming on whether a white police officer should face charges in the killing of an unarmed black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Mo., the investigation has sprung a few leaks..

New details from the inquiry into Michael Brown’s Aug. 9 death — all provided by unidentified sources and which seem to support Officer Darren Wilson’s story of what happened that day — have emerged in St. Louis and national news outlets in recent days.

The U.S. Department of Justice condemned the leaks Wednesday as “irresponsible and highly troubling” and said, “There seems to be an inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.”

The details and news reports say that Brown struggled with Wilson in his patrol car and that Wilson’s gun went off in the car before a brief foot chase ensued.

[…] Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Brown’s family, said he was not surprised by the autopsy report’s details.

“Several independent witnesses indicated there was a brief altercation between Michael Brown and Officer Wilson at the patrol car,” Crump said in a statement. “What we want to know is why Officer Wilson shot Michael Brown multiple times and killed him even though he was more than 20 feet away from his patrol car; this is the crux of the matter!”

But other activists and St. Louis-area officials saw the leaks as the crux of the matter, deriding news outlets for reporting the leaked information and investigative officials for leaking it.

 

[…] A Justice Department spokeswoman responded in a statement to the Los Angeles Times: “The department considers the selective release of information in this investigation to be irresponsible and highly troubling. Since the release of the convenience-store footage, there seems to be an inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.

The reference to the convenience-store footage alluded to a video released by Ferguson police on the same day they disclosed Wilson’s identity. The video showed Brown apparently intimidating a store clerk shortly before the shooting.

Chris King, managing editor of the St. Louis American, a newspaper for black audiences, said law enforcement officials had offered him the leaks, saying “they had been briefed on the evidence and it didn’t look good for Michael Brown supporters,” but he declined and decried “third-party hearsay” in an editorial for the paper.

“Tensions are so high that preparations for riots, if Wilson walks free, are discussed in sober terms in local and national media and on street corners,” the American said in its editorial. “The editors of these powerful publications have shown a lapse in judgment and ethics that is not only shameful, but actually dangerous. We declare a mistrial in the court of public opinion.” (read more)

Then along comes the poker “tell” for a very specific type of liberal progressive:

    The DOJ and CRS has an epic failure on their hands now. They let this get way out of hand and can’t seem to reign it in now. Heaven forbid our government ever be held accountable anymore. Thanks to them the court of public opinion will always be against the innocent Officer Darren Wilson. Their agenda sickens me.

    The way this last statment is made gives the false impression that Mike Brown had ran more than 20 feet away from the patrol car and was shot by the officer while he was still at the patrol car. The impression being that if Brown was 20 feet away from officer and running then he wasn’t a threat. Crump knows that distances matter but he still he attempts to mislead.

      Let’s give him the honest answer. Because at 20 feet he was still charging at Officer Wilson after being ordered to stop and after already beaten and threatened the police officer’s life in the car. Crump, you idiot, you asked for the answer. You shall receive.

    What Obama and Eric Holder are doing right now is straight out of the Bill Clinton playbook. That guy used to condemn legislation as being horrible, but then he would sign it into law! When you cannot decide which side of an issue to be on then the best bet is to take both sides. Classic.

    The irony of the LA times report is great. A government official speaks anonymously with a reporter…….. and he tells the reporter that it is “troubling” for people to give out information anonymously! You cannot make this stuff up.

    By the way, the feds have really made the rounds this week. They have given anonymous information to reporters in St. Louis(ground zero), NY, DC, and LA. What will be the next stop? Surely it will have to be Chicago, right?

      The issue is more about intellectual honesty. Editor could pen piece saying he withheld the same information as Washington Post, New York Times and St. Louis Dispatch because he felt adverse to the content.

      That would be honest.

      However, it’s dishonest not to say anything about it because we all know if the results and findings supported the Brown version of events he would have printed without issue.

      When we think about national discord, and divisions therein, it is important to remember the media is what creates those divisions.

      If media would investigate, rigorously question, and hold opinion sellers to account – there would not be a need to rely on leaks etc. to find the truth.

      This is why we must hold all of the Rene Stutzman’s and Chris King’s to account. In essence they are the fuel that lights the fuses for the Quick Trip fires.

      Problem is that King defends himself for not printing the leaks by pretending to be the only fair-minded reputable journalist in print. His tweets, however, tell a different story.
      Also, his disgust at the “hearsay” or ” third-party leaks” is disingenous because he admits the info he got early on came from a federal contact that was not DOJ, which likely means it came from someone in the CRS (certainly not in Wilson’s corner). He knew then and now that the info is valid, but like everyone else who is on the side of racial grievance and division, Chris King is using self-righteous indignation instead of just honestly saying “I print what I think is newsworthy.” or “I didn’t believe what I was told because I think Darren Wilson is guilty.”

      Yeah, as Sundance said (above) we need to start holding these people accountable. Of course not to the point of destroying the 1st Am re. the media, but these people shouldn’t be allowed to say and do things (or NOT say and do things) that they KNOW are false and are gonna cause people to suffer. Just as they did with George and others. Their actions/inactions should not just lead to lawsuits, it should lead to prison.

      Ferguson was set up for an election prod to “certain” voters because they weren’t interested in midterms because Obama wasn’t on the ballot. Pookie isn’t interested in the elections unless something ties Pookie’s grievances to it. All this Obama talk of Pookie and Michelle’s knuckleheads is about this and “those” votes. Brown/Ferguson was supposed to be their Ace up the sleeve. The store video screwed it up, DOJ/CRS was already involved, Missouri shut down the clown show with a grand jury and straight shooter DA, the agitator/protestors had been promised a job this late summer and fall and they were not taking no for an answer. Criminal justice as GOTV manipulation should be illegal but is DOJ/CRS’s specialty. Now they are exposed.

    My brain hurts from their twisted logic. Here Chris King is comparing the discovery process and how each side is supposed to turn over all the evidence to each other to this Grand Jury and tries to imply they didn’t turn over the evidence to the “other side” i.e. the Public. He says that was unethical. Oh my.
