Article doesn't even need substance.
I showed a friend yesterday a headline that read "Terrifying moment a black child's birthday party was interrupted by 'armed' white men
carrying Confederate flags 'shouting n-word', death threat"
They were convinced the headline was true even though it was all hearsay from one side of the story.
Notice how 'armed' and 'shouting n-word' are enclosed quoting someone.
Long story short the flag parade was driving by and the people at the party started shouting at them and 'throwing objects'. One of the trucks had a
flat tire and had to fix it.
The police came and the article said they "had to hold back the partygoers" as the trucks left the scene.
The flag parade side of the story isn't give space until near the end of the article.
All of the picture captions carry the idea the flag parade was the problem element.
People look for headlines that confirm their bias, if it does they won't bother to read further.
In their mind their position is vindicated.
The media is complicit in stirring up racial animosity and many are too lazy to bother reading beyond headlines and a few picture captions.
It's a sure formula for trouble.
Just google that headline and see how bad the propaganda is these days.
This article is a prime example.
Do not repost the article here on ATS.
It was already done and deemed unfit for reprinting here.
