    I am going to miss Cynthia McKinney. She is such a great example of the kook left and her meltdowns will be missed

    However, the liberal media did their best to overlook her rantings. They ignored the racist remarks of her supports after her crushing loss Tuesday night

    Nets Ignore Cynthia McKinney Entourage’s Election Night Meltdown
    Posted by Noel Sheppard on August 10, 2006 - 08:34.
    If a long-time member of Congress lost a primary battle for re-election, and his/her campaign entourage shouted racial epithets at reporters and about her opponent after defeat, do you think this would have been on the evening news? Well, if said member of Congress was a Democrat, the answer apparently is “no,” for not one of the broadcast networks felt it was newsworthy to report Tuesday evening's events involving Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-Georgia).

    For those that haven’t heard, McKinney’s campaign entourage now includes members of the New Black Panthers. After her primary defeat Tuesday to Hank Johnson for Georgia’s 4th Congressional district, some of these folks went on a bit of a rampage referring to white reporters as “crackers,” calling her opponent an “Uncle Tom,” blaming her loss on Israel, and shouting anti-Semitic epithets at a Jewish reporter (hat tip to Ms Underestimated with video to follow).

    Yet, not one of the network evening news broadcasts bothered to report this event. Of course, all three networks began their shows with Sen. Joe Lieberman’s loss in Connecticut.

    Ms Underestimated has been kind enough to supply us an absolutely unbelievable Fox News video of this event.

    Check out the link and watch the video. Very telling who supports the kook left

    No shame and blatant bias--apparently the media feels free to act without fear of being held responsible for anything they do.
    So Mel gets nailed and McKinneys folks are given a pass---why?

    Before attacking a politican the liberal media has the following rules:

    If you attack a black Dem you are a racist

    If you attack a female Dem you are sexist

    If you attack a white Conservative you are a hero

    It's probably because she's totally insane and everyone already knows that she'd pull something like this. Plus she lost her primary so she doesn't matter anymore because she isn't going to keep running as an indi. Plus if you go to cnn's site you'll find a few articles about Her Craziness.

    They ignored the rants because she is a black liberal

    To the liberal media, only whites are racists

    Au contrare. It would matter very much to the MSM if a white conservative male politician said anything non-PC, let alone something reaching this level of racism. His likelihood of mounting a successful future campaign would be irrelevant to the mass coverage it would be given.

    It's a double standard. Just ask Mel Gibson.

    In my opinion Pat Robertson is a kook, and not even an elected one, but any time he rattles something off it's paraded around for a week or more. Why is a Robertson comment presented as the typical Conservative, but a McKinney comment is ignored instead of presented as a typical Liberal? It's just an example of Liberal media bias sometimes being about what isn't said rather than what is said.

    NY Times Again Ignores Rep. Cynthia McKinney's Nutty Conspiracy Theories
    Posted by Clay Waters on August 10, 2006 - 12:43.
    Brenda Goodman follows up on her NY Times story on the loss in the Democratic primary by inflammatory Rep. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, but lets her allies blame the Republicans in "Democrat Says G.O.P. Voters Led to Her Loss."


    As she did yesterday, Goodman ignores McKinney's nutty statements alleging 9-11 conspiracies and her anti-Israel animus, saying today only that many new district voters "were not impressed by her confrontational and occasionally erratic style."

    Then it's on to blaming the GOP for McKinney's failures:

    "But Ms. McKinney and her supporters contend that Republicans mounted a campaign to vote her out of office, as they did four years ago when crossover voting helped elect her Democratic challenger, Denise Majette.

    "'We aren’t going to tolerate any more stolen elections,' Ms. McKinney said in her concession speech, though crossover voting is legal in Georgia."

    Goodman gets this wrong. The context of McKinney's quote (you can watch it here) makes it clear she's talking about a conspiracy theory involving electronic voting machines. She says: "....electronic voting machines are a threat to our democracy. So let the word go out. We're not going to tolerate any more stolen elections."

    Goodman gets Republicans to "acknowledge" the offense of crossover voting:

    "Several Republican strategists acknowledged that widespread crossover voting was organized and encouraged on Tuesday."

    She forwards a bizarre legal theory:

    "Some voting rights advocates said that while crossover voting might be legal, it violated the spirit of the Voting Rights Act and the Constitution because it effectively negated the right of a group -- in Ms. McKinney’s case, black voters -- to nominate the candidate of their choice."

    Goodman's "voting rights advocate" source for this? A lawyer for McKinney. What a coincidence!

    "'There’s case law that says one party can’t interfere in another party’s primary,' said Mike Raffauf, a lawyer who filed a 2002 lawsuit in federal court against the State of Georgia on Ms. McKinney’s behalf."

    Goodman doesn't mention that Raffauf is still working for McKinney -- hardly a disinterested source.
