The Calley Effect

I share my Taki colleagues’ dismay and disgust regarding the fly-by-night carnival I’m obliged to refer to—in accordance with his mother’s stated wishes—as the Trayvon MartinTM Affair.

I, too, detect that unmistakable odor of media malpractice in the air: the miraculous discovery of a previously unknown race—the “white Hispanic”; the predictable arrival of those human hyenas Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson (and worse, the media’s respectful treatment of these two unrepentant humbugs); and now, news that NBC edited George Zimmerman’s 911 call to make him sound more “racist”.
