Can we ever expect the true story from the MSM?

'Hate crime' victims: Young, poor, white. From World Net Daily.

WASHINGTON – The most likely victim of a hate crime in the U.S. is a poor, young, white, single urban dweller, according to an analysis of Justice Department statistics collected from between July 2000 and December 2003.

A November report by the Bureau of Justice Statistics detailing a study of 210,000 "hate crimes" a year during that period has gone virtually unreported by the U.S. press.

But it does contain some surprising numbers. While race is, by far, the No. 1 factor cited as the reason for hate crimes, blacks are slightly less likely to be victims and far more likely to be perpetrators, the statistics show.

This certainly has to go on the list of most under-reported stories of the year (right next to Al Gore's treasonous tendencies.) I have not heard one word about these findings, but I have heard about how ice is supposedly melting on the South Pole and making Polar Bears depressed. Or something like that.

But seriously, folks, let me know if you hear even a whisper of this on any mainstream news reports or in any mainstream publications. I doubt that you will.
