The next cable TV meme — crime, race, media



A group of an estimated 30 youths — black youths — attack a white couple in Norfolk, Va. The couple works for the local newspaper. The newspaper doesn't run a story about it.

Now a columnist has broken the silence.

Romenesko has picked it up.

Political correctness or a newspaper's considered decision to treat crime equally? In light of the columnist's detailed account, looks like the newspaper blew it. Forget race (though you'll see in reading that this will be hard to do). Local cops blowing off a mass assault? It's news.

This story has legs.
