More Media Myths from the Jena 6

The Christian Science Monitor reveals these 12 myths on the racially charged tale, from a local Jena journalist:

  1. Myth 1: The Whites-Only Tree-it wasn't
  2. Myth 2: Nooses a Signal to Black Students.-Also wrong
  3. Myth 3: Nooses Were a Hate Crime.-Not
  4. Myth 4: DA's Threat to Black Students.-Didn't happen.
  5. Myth 5: The Fair Barn Party Incident.-It was a private party.
  6. Myth 6: The "Gotta-Go" Grocery Incident.-Gang violence.
Go to the link for the other six myths, and greater detail on each. This sounds to me like more "fake but accurate reporting" the left uses to antagonize people and further their agenda.
