Jay Love from 1230 the Buzz was reporting from the Black Fist's "protest" on Fountain Square. There were 3 or 4 members of the Fist there, which is almost the entire group. Jay Love reports that they have signs that read something like: "Jews are still Trouble makers" and "Jews Rapped black girls and Boys". The bigotry of the Black Fist has no piers today in Cincinnati. I don’t think Jay could have been more embarrassed on the air then his report from the Square. I think he felt the event was not newsworthy and just pure bigotry. The fact that it was bigotry should be newsworthy. The fact that the Black Fist and its members are nothing but racists is not news to me, but it is news to the local media who refuse to paint them as the hate group they are. I commend 1230 the Buzz for reporting at least the basic facts of the “protest.” Jay or Lincoln could have done a little more commentary in condemning this group, but that might hurt ratings. I wonder what the Post, the Enquirer, and TV News will do with this story. Will the bigotry be portrayed or will just the controversy be played? The latter is where the bias of the media is most acute.
