The virulently anti-Trump Washington Post has just illustrated how the game of racializing the judiciary is played.

The other day Donald Trump began criticizing the judge in the Trump University case being brought against him. He pointed out that the Judge was “Mexican.” U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, born in Indiana, is indeed of Mexican parentage. The Post headlined their front page story this way: "Trump’s vendetta against federal judge alarms legal experts."



The nation’s leading newspapers couldn’t be bothered with the controversy over Team Obama's no-show at the huge Paris "unity" rally on Monday morning, and then buried it on Tuesday. The Washington Post and The New York Times noticed France didn't seem to care.

NPR reporter Mara Liasson arrived on the story, but underlined "it's probably not that big a deal."



Katie Zezima at the Associated Press is the latest in a long line of reporters sucked into the fundamental dishonesty of the "Food Stamp Challenges" which have been taking place around the country for more than five years.

Zezima's misdirection came at the direction of Newark, New Jersey's Democratic mayor Cory Booker, who challenged one of his Twitter followers several weeks ago to, in Zezima's words, "try to live on the monetary equivalent of food stamps for at least a week" in connection with "a debate about the role the government should play in school nutrition funding." Those two quoted characterizations expose the two main problems with the Food Stamp Challenge. I'll explain both after excerpting a bit more of Zezima's December 11 dispatch after the jump:



On Monday, the New York Times joined other media outlets in suddenly uncovering sexism in overwhelmingly liberal Massachusetts, after the shocking takeover by Republican Scott Brown of a seat held by Democrats for almost 60 years. Katie Zezima reported from Boston: "After Senate Race, Some Say Barrier for Women in Massachusetts Still Stands."
