The Media All Wrong on D.C. Snipers
Pat Buchanan, The American Cause
During the 23 days the Beltway Sniper was shooting 13 people and murdering 10 in the D.C. suburbs, the press – especially the cable news networks – got it wrong … all wrong.
Their "profilers" almost all thought the sniper was an angry white male, driving a white van, acting alone, a clever killer who knew the D.C. area so well he must live here.
None of this, it seems, was true. There was not one, but two snipers. Neither lived here. Neither knew the area. They were not white. They did not drive a white van. Far from being clever, they were dumb as a post. How did the media get it wrong?
TAGGED: Washington D.C., crime
