    More fake racism from fake news media

    A San Francisco television station has retracted its story alleging a Vallejo police officer used a racial slur during a traffic stop on July 8.

    In an unedited copy [of the video] obtained by the Times-Herald, it was not evident the officer used the slur. Instead, it appeared the officer said “Hey, David,” in reference to the passenger’s first name, instead of the “N-Word” which was reported by the news station and resident.

    Dan Rosenheim, vice president and news director of KPIX-TV and KBCW-TV, declined to answer questions about whether the station would apologize to the Vallejo Police Department, discipline the reporter who filed the story, and/or double-check its work before broadcasting a news story.

    "more fake racism"? The video isn't conclusive. Note the use of words like "appears" and terms like "it was not evident". Where is the other story? Why was it believed that the officer used a racial slur?

    We have MORE racism now than we did 30 years ago. Unfortunately, racist notes left by customers, and unfounded cries of "racial discrimination" steal the spotlight while my brothers are shot down in the streets and many more are incarcerated due to a totally unnecessary 'war on drugs.' Why can't we ever talk about REAL racism?

    I hope you knew I was being sarcastic. We can talk about real racism but those on the right believe that it doesn't exist or that we cry racism too much. Yes, bigotry is worse than it has been in years
    I am ambivalent about the war on drugs.

    Fake news is when the truth comes out and people still keep going fake.

    "...We met to talk about adoptions"

    They wouldn't lie. I wouldn't be surprised if Junior adopted a baby from Russia because after all that's probably all he wanted to meet up for (tongue in cheek)
