So I'm listening to WCBS Newsradio in New York and the CBS network news comes on and says several members of the Congressional Black caucaus namely John Lewis and Emanual Cleaver D-Mo. where called "nigger' by protesters against President Obama's healthcare bill. Also one of the congressmen was spat upon. Here is how it was reported by McClatchy news:
"Lewis said he was leaving the Cannon office building across from the Capitol when protesters shouted "Kill the bill, kill the bill," Lewis said.
"I said 'I'm for the bill, I support the bill, I'm voting for the bill'," Lewis said.
A colleague who was accompanying Lewis said people in the crowd responded by saying "Kill the bill, then the n-word."
"It surprised me that people are so mean and we can't engage in a civil dialogue and debate," Lewis said. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver , D- Mo. , said he was a few yards behind Lewis and distinctly heard "nigger."
McClatchy tried to blame the "Tea Party".  The only problem is this did not happen. But, the pack mentality of today's mainstream media once again fails to verify the facts for us . Lucky for us as the famous quote about blogging says "WE CAN FACT CHECK YOUR ASS!" Which is what is shown here:

Do you hear anyone yelling the "N" word? Notice that a few in the Lewis's entourage are carrying camera phones too. Don't you think if they had video proof of such calls we would have seen it by now? All we have is the word of Congressman Cleaver and you know how much the word of a member of congress is worth. Just another example why one should not trust the mainstream media to provide the facts of what is really going on Washington.
