Fox, Panthers And Blackstronauts...

'Mainstream Media Coverage Slim On Nasa, Black Panther Stories'

Last year, it was Van Jones and ACORN that slipped under much of the media's radar.


One is NASA Administrator Charles Bolden's claim that one of the space agency's primary missions is to improve relations with Muslim countries. The other is the ongoing investigation into why the Justice Department dropped its case against New Black Panther Party members accused of intimidating voters on Election Day 2008.


In the New Black Panther case, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is a year into its investigation and on Tuesday heard groundbreaking testimony from a former official who claims the Justice Department dropped it in part because it refuses to go after black defendants in civil rights cases.


So Fox isn't mainstream?

Well, as they seem to have the market cornered on these stories I guess the obvious question is, 'what are they going to do with them?'

Oh I forgot, their motto is 'We report, you decide!'

A motto, by the way, that makes no sense what-so-ever.
