Katrina Mayhem Redux

Last September, as the horror in New Orleans began to unfold, I wrote about the unholy alliance forming between Bush apologists eager to deflect criticism from the president and those on the politically-correct Left fearful that the complete breakdown of civilized life in New Orleans might reinforce some negative stereotypes. In an article with generous references to this blog, Columnist Nicholas Stix tells how this white-washing reached its apotheosis in a pulitzer prize to two Times-Picayune reporters. Stix, in turn, awards them his "Duranty-Blair" award, a far more deserving accolade.

It is interesting how many newspapers have the politically correct choke chain around their necks. Whenever, they feel a tug by a nonwhite racial group they respond as trained. In the meantime, none of these racial groups provide any significant readership to these sinking media outlets. And the people who do read them apparently grow weary with this act, or just don't seem to be willing to pay for it. Do they have to answer to anyone? Businessmen? Stockholders? I mean who owns a product that so ignores its actual customers for ones it imagines it should have?

They're writing for their superior-feeling white readers. Nothing makes a certain type of liberal feel better than having a dumb white racist hick nearby to make fun of, while nothing makes him more uncomfortable than having to face the reality of the minority underclass.
