Well it appears that the MSM was not showing the pictures because one of the guys was somebody else.

 

I'll give MSNBC credit for doing its homework

Here's the thing the "media double standard" people don't seem to be thinking about:

 

These guys were immediately arrested, charged, and will likely get multiple life sentences or death.

 

Zimmerman is a free man.

 

Yes, I can see a double standard.

The point is, darth, the news has no problem showing images of black criminals(my post said nothing about white people)

What's the more reasonable conclusion here: media conspiracy or protecting the identity of minors

 

i think this pretty much hits the nail on the head. the claim that the media is purposely not declaring the race of these guys because they're black is easily disproven by noting that the media has zero problem showing the faces of black criminals doing equally heinous things (or worse) on a regular basis. here again we see a ginormous confirmation bias that rejects critical thinking in favor of fitting the evidence to the conclusion rather than the reverse.

 

also it's absolutely hilarious to me that it turns out one of the kids was white.

i think media is also fresh off of, hopefully, lessons learned on rushing to judgment. oscillation usually happens that way
