Remember bullshit like this every time conservatives whine about the alleged “liberal media.” Shameful as all fucking shit.
actually kinda feel like this HELPS the conservative point that the New York Times is a liberal bastion though? the whole reason the Times feels this need to comment on character of Brown in such a way comes from this “balance” and “both sides” liberal horse-shit totally blind to how racism and power function and how their view-from-nowhere contributes to it. As someone pointed out to me earlier, “sublimated racism is absolutely part of liberal ideology”.
I mean, the conservative media has their own mind-boggling racism to answer for, but that “he was no angel” line is pure New York Times liberalism via racism.
