Victor Davis Hanson offered a refreshingly candid appraisal today of the content of the character of Michael Brown, along with a concise summary of how Brown’s death was the direct result of his unlawful, and foolish, actions — a useful counterpoint to the mass-media coverage which has focused more on the color of his skin, and on his family’s loss.

A six-minute clip of Belling’s remarks (culled, in chronological order, from about 30 minutes of discussion between 3:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.) appears below. A twelve-minute extended version, providing more context (which is highly recommended for those closely following events in Ferguson), is available here. (Note: Belling had nothing to do with the images and video added to the clips to illustrate Belling’s discussion.)
Here is a brief summary (a full transcript appears below the video). (more…)

An earlier post on this blog addressed the liberal print media’s egregious reporting on the recently unveiled, but stale, partisan allegations against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — which have already been found meritless by the state and federal courts — to the effect that Gov. Walker is some sort of criminal mastermind.
But one must turn to the broadcast media — specifically, MSNBC — to fully appreciate the vast distance between reality and imagination in the liberal media’s coverage of this non-story, which must be attributed to bad faith, or incompetence, or maybe a bit of both. (more…)
