If you wonder about the bias and lack of objectivity and accuracy of reporters in the mainstream media, look no farther than what they are learning at schools like the University of North Texas, where Dorothy Bland is the dean of the school of journalism.
Bland recently wrote an article in the Dallas Morning News about her supposed harassment by police officers for “walking while black” that doesn’t bear even a passing resemblance to what really happened.
Of course, we would not know this based on her allegations of racist treatment. But fortunately for us and the Corinth, Texas, Police Department, the officers who encountered Bland turned on the dashcam in their police cruiser before they stopped her.
* FOLKS... TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE CNS ARTICLE, READ BLAND'S LYING OP-ED, AND THEN WATCH THE DASHCAM VIDEO FOR YOURSELVES.
* WHAT A PIECE OF CRAP THIS WOMAN IS. WHAT A LYING DIRTBAG.
* AND LET ME TELL YOU... THE REASON WHY THE OFFICERS ASKED FOR ID AND "TOOK HER INFORMATION" WAS FOR THEIR OWN PROTECTION - AS PUBLIC RECORD OF THE ENCOUNTER! FOR CHRIST'S SAKE... IT'S STANDARD PROCEDURE!
The vanity, arrogance, and conceit that shine through Bland’s commentary are quite revealing. And it says a lot about the field of journalism.
The biased, false assumptions that Bland reflects, that police officers are racists who target minorities and that we have an inherently discriminatory criminal justice system, are being spread by everyone from the Black Lives Matter Movement to the President and Justice Department officials.
Bland took a very routine traffic incident where she was at fault and completely twisted it to portray herself as the victim and to fit all of her biased assumptions about law enforcement.
Before becoming the dean of the school of journalism at the University of North Texas, Bland also worked at Florida A&M University as a journalism professor and at USA Today.
