Chicago Tribune censors mob attack against 93 year old woman


The Chicago Tribune purposefully censored an attack against a 93 year old woman in the suburb of Mount Prospect. The Tribune asks for the public to help police catch the perpetrators, but censors the description of the perps. The Tribune lists their estimated age and the colors of some articles of clothing. This information comes from the police report. A reader of this website contacted the Mount Prospect police department and was told that the perpetrators are listed as Hispanic on the police report. So the Tribune reporter has a copy of the police report but purposefully censored the single most useful descriptive term on the police report. Once again, someone in the media is putting political correctness ahead of public safety.

We can further demonstrate that the Chicago Tribune purposefully censored this part of the story, because the Chicago Daily Herald did report it. Senior staffers at the Chicago Tribune have also publicly admitted to censoring crime stories in the past (see below).

The race of the perpetrators was also censored by WGNtv and the Chicago Sun-Times. So out of the four Chicago media outlets to mention the attack, 75% censored the story to conceal the race of the perpetrators.

In 2011 the Chicago tribune openly admitted to censoring black crime.

From Examiner.com…

Last June Chicago Tribune senior vice president and editor Gerould Kern admitted the newspaper censors black crime in a rather nasty response to his critics.

Kern stated, “we guard against subjecting an entire group of people to suspicion because of the color of their skin.”

His admission of guilt came after a series of brutal racially motivated mob attacks against white people in Chicago. The Chicago Tribune censored the race of the perpetrators and concealed the nature of the attacks.

When critics attacked the Tribune for their coverage, Kern proudly boasted of the papers’ censorship and personally insulted the white victims. He ranted, “there is no evidence to suggest that the victims were singled out because of their race.”

Following the diatribe by Chicago Tribune Editor Kern, Chicago Tribune opinion page writer Steve Chapman, who calls himself “a minority of one,” stated the same thing and defended the practice.

Chapman, who is on the far left, states “It’s the newspaper’s sound general policy not to mention race in a story, whether about crime or anything else.” Chapman then got very nasty in his diatribe defending censorship. He states that people who advocate accurate reporting of crime stories “fear or dislike blacks.”

Chapman also decided to take a jab at the innocent white victims of black mob violence in Chicago. He claimed the race of the perpetrators was not relevant. Then he said stated “what good would it do to trumpet the skin color of the thugs? So pedestrians on Michigan Avenue can run away when they see two or more African-Americans?”

Obviously Chapman would rather see more innocent white people attacked than report the news accurately.
