    This comes from the protesting too much category.

    Read it all: Andrew Alexander - Why the silence from The Post on Black Panther Party story?

    It's pretty OBVIOUS why they weren't reporting it. The same reason they tried to spike the Monica Lewinsky story. Because it's bad new for their president and they have their lips permanently attached to his butt.

    They can make up all kinds of rationalizations and excuses as to why it took them so long to get on this story, but it still boils down to their own bias.

    Do you believe for a minute it would have taken them this long from the Bush admin?

    Phonies!

    Do we need to open a "Black Panther" section?

    Why, are liberals that desperate to keep that story out of politics?

    Was there a prevalence of black panthers holding up voting nation wide?


    The New Black Panther Case:
    A Conservative Dissent

    Forget about the New Black Panther Party case; it is very small potatoes. Perhaps the Panthers should have been prosecuted under section 11 (b) of the Voting Rights Act for their actions of November 2008, but the legal standards that must be met to prove voter intimidation — the charge — are very high.

    In the 45 years since the act was passed, there have been a total of three successful prosecutions. The incident involved only two Panthers at a single majority-black precinct in Philadelphia. So far — after months of hearings, testimony and investigation — no one has produced actual evidence that any voters were too scared to cast their ballots. Too much overheated rhetoric filled with insinuations and unsubstantiated charges has been devoted to this case.

    Sorry, but those men aren't associated with the real Black Panthers.
