Given that we seem to know only what the media post, at least it is true for me, I can’t see why the emotions?

What if the media are simply playing us ie guiding us towards the conclusions they want us to come to? For example, I love the NYTimes, I bought a house in TV partly so I can walk to Barnes and Nobles to get the Sunday edition - but to believe unequivocally what it says? The editor has a particular perspective sometimes I don’t agree with but she has every right to it, in my opinion. And that is only one media source.

Explain this to me......

This guy is a low level actor of some sort, and obviously a bad dude.

Why is this such an issue. We have some serious folks now doing time and they are adored. Yet this guy seems vital to some posters existence. I am going to begin a series of cons who are indicted and you guys can rail against them as you do here.

This guy, who I never heard of must be very important to you all. Perhaps the hate filled venom I got in a PM had some hints as to why he is found so important.

I am so sick of the hate, judgement, and phoney respect for our law.

When this happened, the police and prosecutor gave a news conference where they described in great detail the entire case against Smollett, including a complete timeline, down to the minute, and all of the interviews they conducted, who they talked to, and what the witnesses said. It was the most detailed description of a criminal case I have ever seen before trial. Totally unprecedented.

It's an issue because the press wants to keep it an issue. If you haven't noticed, the media loves to sensationalize anything that can promote racial strife.

Recently it was the Covington High incident. Where a bunch of white kids were accused (mainly because they were wearing MAGA hats) of causing trouble at the Lincoln Memorial. Most of the initial reporting was proven to be inaccurate if not downright fabricated.

Now this guy comes along saying he was assaulted and had racial and homophobic slurs directed toward him by MAGA hat wearing thugs.

He was trying to capitalize on the sympathy of several groups. The LGBTQ and African American Communities and the Trump haters. He was basically trying to turn this into a hate crime of epic proportions. Why? Because his career was floundering and he needed some attention.

Then the police investigation started to unravel his story and felt they had plenty of evidence for several charges including felonies.

Then the Cook County State's Attorney hung the police out to dry by refusing to try the case.

I think people should be angry. We have enough real division in this country without this guy using his celebrity to fabricate more.
