The San Francisco Chronicle is a typical lazy hypocritical liberal newspaper. It keeps the secrets of the radical left, claims any perversion is protected and says the Constitution protects privacy. It is refusing to give the public much information about a thug Oscar Grant who was shot recently by the police. However, the Chron has given the police officer involved the once over, searching for any deragatory information about him, going back to high school. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/01/09/MNQV156LHC.DTL&tsp=1
Obviously, unless you are black, you can't get a job as a cop with a criminal record. (See the New Orleans Police Department) So, in searching for deragory information about Police Officer Johannes Mehserle SF Chronicle reporter Jim Doyle scowered Mehserle's life, soliciting negative information about him from his grammar and high schools. It was if Doyle was expecting , or hoping, to find something to hang Mehserle with. Hoping perhaps he was some sort of junior Nazi or Klansman perhaps, or maybe fistacuffs with a non-white on the playground.
Sarah Palin got the same treatment, but Princess Caroline and the Obamessiah have their lives whitewashed. Nothing on Obama's drug use, gifts from fundraisers, Chicago corruption, communists ghostwriting his imaginary autobiography, racist spritual advisor, a hatefilled life of envy and shame. It is clear that the press has an agenda, and it could mean losing your liberty if you are the wrong person.
