Fuckin media

Not trusting the bleary headlines, I had to slip my neighbor's paper out of its plastic sleeve this morning, careful not to leave fingerprints or un-original creases she might detect, to affirm what my unbelieving eyes had just viewed:

NO HEADLINES above the fold about the massive injustice that just happened in Florida; NO HEADLINES below the fold either!

Merely a little box, at the very bottom of the front page, along with several other little boxes the same size referring the reader to another page inside the paper.

I just rechecked on-line - after all, it was foggy, grey, cold this morning and my eyes aren't what they used to be. Maybe I made a mistake.

But no, NO HEADLINES even on the on-line version- just those little boxes along the side.

More racism!
