WND Pretends A White Teen Wasn't Involved In Lane Killing
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily originally scrubbed its initial article on the death of Chris Lane of most of its overt race-baiting after it we pointed out that one of the suspects in Lane's death was white, not black. Apparently, WND has now decided it can race-bait over Lane's death after all.

An Aug. 23 WND article promoting Jack Cashill's upcoming book on Trayvon Martin contains this paragraph about the Lane killing:

Two teenage African-Americans are charged with the murder of Lane, and another teen faces charges for his involvement in the brutal slaying. Lane was shot in the back while jogging through his neighborhood and his death has prompted an international outcry.

Not only is the third suspect, Michael Jones, not identified as white, his role in the murder is minimized.

Cashill goes on to desperately draw a parallel between the two black suspects and Trayvon Martin, declaring that "if Trayvon was the son of Barack Obama, they were his brothers." Cashill does not say that if he had a son, he would look like Michael Jones.
