In his column today, Bolt attempts to introduce a racial element into an incident where no racial element is known. Bolt just assumes there must be a racial element involved. His article implies that the violent incident might have been a ‘cultural’ thing and suggests that the original reports of the incident should have included racial descriptions of those involved. Bolt’s bloggies then pick and run with the racist abuse in the accompanying comments.
Bolt must be getting desperate. Pushing racism from stories that have nothing to do with race really is gutter journalism. It also exposes Bolt for what he really is, and a more blatant piece of non-story racist propaganda would be hard to find anywhere else… except maybe at Murdoch’s other propaganda blogs where the likes of Tim Blair and Piers Akerman hang out.
