It was one year ago today.
John Ashcroft, decades long champion of segregation (i.e. racist scum), announced he was planning to re-open a fifty year old murder case on the eve of the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.
The press played eagerly into his hands. Running the story were all the important dailies, here is USA Today's take.
It's been one year, and nothing has changed. The Emmet Till murder case was an announcement only event. Thanks for following up, establishment press.
This is what happens all the time. The press is constantly used by the government and they simply have no self-respect. They enjoy the money too much. They don't even (as much as is often supposed) care too much who is in office, as long as they can get their exclusives.
